    Coolant "Drain Cock" o-rings

    Hi all, I have a slow annoying leak from from the "drain cock" I can see in the schematic there are several o-rings and maybe a valve in there? Babbits shows it all as one unit for purchase.

    New radiator?

    Now that I moved to AZ it seems that my -94 has decided to heat too much (which is funny as I bought it new in Dubai, moved to Honk Kong with no problems). I already have the Nissan sensor, which must dead now as the fan does not come in; i will try to check everything but I wanted to know if...

    Radiator Coolant / Antifreeze a crystalized big wad of goop!

    Trying to bring to life an 85. The gas tank is a little rusty so going to get that cleaned up using some of the suggestions on this forum. However, before I did that, I planned to fire her up by running fuel lines to an external tank. I decided to check the coolant and found this white/yellow...

    Aux Fuel Tanks mounted on radiator

    The fuel reserve system was not operating, so I relied on the odometer for fuel stops, but found that really depended on my riding habits. All bulbs tested OK during the start button sequence, so I traced it back to a faulty fuel sending unit using a resistance check. A used replacement was...

    Radiator angle or other options

    Thanks to anyone taking a moment to read this inquiry. I was recently looking at the lower frame tabs that hold the bottom of the radiator in place and slightly away from the front of the vmx1200 frame. I think an inch or more could be gained by shaving the tabs off and pulling the lower...

    Aftermarket radiator

    Has anyone installed one of these aftermarket radiators? Any issues with installation? Claims 30% increase in capacity, so does that mean keeps the motor cooler? Also, can these be painted black without hurting the cooling abilities? I have already changed the thermostat, but the oem...

    Replacement radiator

    Since my radiator isn't in the greatest shape I thought I would replace it. It seems my only options are used stock and several different companies selling the same Chinese radiator. Am I better off finding a nos Yamaha part as opposed to the aftermarket one? Also how much motor can the stock...

    Radiator fan motor short circuit

    Recently my max had been blowing fuses on the radiator fan circuit. I installed my own cheap hardware toggle switch to bypass the thermostat so I could kick on the fan whenever I felt like it. That was my first suspect. After going through the circuit, everything seemed to have solid...

    Radiator side reflector. Does it light up?

    I bought a couple of used radiator side covers from a member here and they have what appear to be electrical wires coming out of the yellow reflectors. It seems to me that there might be a light in there that goes on when you turn on the flashers. My 86 bike's covers didn't have these wires...
