Radiator Removal.

Postby moses » Wed Jan 02, 2013 7:14 am



Hi all
I need to remove both radiators from my 98 GL 1500SE, according to the manual I have it says, put the bike on its stand, drain coolant, remove front radiator shroud, grill and bottom panel then disconnect the radiator hoses, unbolt the radiators and remove from their locating grommets. Sounds easy.
How the heck do I access the top hoses of both rads, cant get to them to disconnect them, cant even see them of feel them, it looks as though I need to dismantle a lot more of the bike to get to them, any ideas? :?

Hi, Moses:
Once you lose and remove lower hoses, remove the left radiator from the locating grommets, and lower it, just then you'll be able to get to the upper hoses clamps. Don't need to dismantle any more.
Kind regards, Mario.

Thanks Mario.
These forums really work, I purchased a well known repair manual, (not Honda I hasten to add) for guidance, not going to name any names, but years ago the manuals produced by this particular company were renowned and very good, I have some of them on my bookshelf plenty of detailed information contained within their pages, but what a shock, now poor quality information, bad pictures printed on poor quality paper. Thanks again. :)
