Any help would be appreciated.
I know I must be overlooking this in my service manual, or not looking in the right place. I'll get to the issue:
I can't get the coolant in my bike. Pretty dumb issue, I'll admit. I put the coolant in my reserve tank, ran the bike idle, and it went and stayed at 210 that afternoon. I thought it was odd, so I turned off the bike. Next day I warm it up to 119 F, and take it down the street. I was quickly back once it started climbing over 220 F.
Basically I'm sure my issue is the reserve tank isn't going into the engine, because, well, it's not. It's staying completely full. I do have a hose that should be connected to something. Hopefully you can help out.
Now, the hose on the top part is the overflow and goes to the ground, but the hose on the bottom should feed somewhere. Maybe I have my hoses wrong. Where does that hose go?
Also, under the gas tank, there's a little doohickey that runs down that has a spot for a line to connect to the front and the bottom. Mine has the bottom line missing. That's probably something completely different, but food for thought.
This is my first summer with this bike, and I haven't done any real work on it, so I'm not sure where things should go. Any help would be appreciated.
BTW: Is there a radiator cap?! I know the 99 has one, but I was certain this one didn't.
