COOLANT RECOVERY TANK



It's Home Depot's finest hour, the hose is 1" ID, the bottom end is a 3/4 copper sweat cap with a hose clamp compressing the hose.
The top end is a 3/4" copper sweat to female thread, that is held with a zip tie and seems to be doing the job and fit's better than a hose clamp in that area.
Inserted into the top female thread is a PVC threaded plug with an appropriate sized hole for the hose coming off the radiator overflow.
Balogna cut the end of the hose going into the tube throught the hole in the plug and run it to the bottom.
The tube needs a vent so I used a 90 degree drip fitting (a bag of them is a buck or two) and stabed a hole near the top
of the large tube in an appropriate area and stuffed the 90's barbed end through the hole then attached a hose to that and
ran it to the back of the skid plate so it could spooge on the ground and not the bike.
I attached the top of the tube to the frame with an electrical conduit clamp slightly bent to hold the tube tight to the frame.
the rest of the tube is being held with zip ties at the moment and seems to be doing fine.
it's about a $20.00 adventure.
It's out of the air flow so it has no adverse effect on cooling and also keeps it's mass towards the center of the bike, can't tell it's there.
If you have any other questions about it let me know.
Ride On!
