Radiator over flow tank line. routing,???

Postby velvetrider » Mon Nov 16, 2015 12:19 pm



She runs great after rebuild.. but no water is going into the overflow tank... I have had to run tubing all the way around air filter housing to keep from interfering with false tank installation. How are you guys overflow tube run,,???

You can see it here, it runs from the top of the tank:

Down the side, and under the tank:

And over to the radiator neck fitting (coolant overflow tank removed in this picture):

My GL1100 was the same way. You just barely touched the starter and it was running. The GL1500 has to crank the engine over twice so that the ECU can detect the crank position before it will begin firing the plugs, so it doesn't start quite as quickly.

You can hear it start at the 1:57 mark:
