antifreeze leak

Post by boonny »



Took the beast out of hibernation the other day and wouldn't you know it, antifreeze on top of the motor. I'm guessing (hoping) the orings in tubes are going south. My question is what is the easiest to get at those tubes? I hope the carbs don't have to come off. Can I remove a carb to head thingy off and get to the tubes that way?

not quite sure what you mean by 'tubes' but if the antifreeze is on top of the motor it may be just a top hose leak, and may need replacing or the just the hose connectors tightening.

top hose can seen by removing the left hand lower fairing cover.
