Re: [ST] Radiator Problem


Thank you for the encouragement, I will likely give it another chance. 
 However, if this would to have happened 100's of miles from home like I 
often travel the bike would have been history.  I checked the hose 
fitting last night, and it was fine.  In fact the part of the shaft 
where it attaches to the hose is dry, just wet where the shaft and 
radiator meet.  

Fortunately my dealer is about 5 miles from my house, and hopefully this 
can be sorted soon. Unfortunately they also see Kawasaki and Suzuki, and 
the 2002's are coming out.  I will let you know what the dealer finds 
out about the leak.  Thanks again for the reply.
