Beat me to it as I noticed that also and forgot to comment on it.clean all surfaces and use some grease on the cap....also the res tube connection looks leaky...as maybe all the others?
looks like the stain is dirty coolant?
Just trying to cover all the base for ya. Let us know how it goes. :action::action::action:Hey Grambo and Bagmaster…
When I first looked at the leak before taking it apart I right away noticed that the leak was too high for anything else other than a reservoir issue. The first thing I thought of was the reservoir tube connecting to the radiator.
That connection, contrary to what the picture looks like, is on tight and is dry as a bone. That’s when I went looking around the cap and found it was dripping from there. All the tubes inspected fine as well as the reservoir.
I will clean the cap flange up and put it back to its proper shape. I cleaned up the cap and it looks o.k. now that it’s been off the bike for a while and is clean. That CLR is great stuff. It looks new.
As far as the floor goes, it’s a well weathered, home mixed, outdoor slab of concrete. It is rough and you can see the sand and stone in it. The dark patches in it are from other repairs to the bike including leaking valve pan gaskets. The coolant is clean and fine.
Thanks for looking out for me though!
