Can you make do without an overflow bottle ?
« on: April 11, 2012, 11:02:21 am »
My 610 started to leak at the bottom of the bottle after wrestling it out to do the valves. I see some guys on enduro bikes runs without them, what do you reckon ? The bike has a fan which should help as well.

I would reckon so?


Boil die bike maklik? As hy nie doen nie, drop die bottle. Of kry dalk 'n kleiner een wat jy kan relocate?

Nee wel die fan het al aangekom maar defnitief nie stoom nie ! Ek het klipperige singletrack gery in 40 grade celsius. Daar is altys so bietjie coolant in die bottle maar nie meer as so 100ml nie ?

as jy bekommerd is, relocate die bottle met een van die:



Ma jy is mos 'n man wat kan, ekt 'n pooratech version gebou op die RMZ vir R35 met 'n fuggit bottletjie en 6mm tube. Maak net seker daar is vloeistof in die pyp tussen die bottle en die prop se overflow.

Ek die met die RMZ gedoen, net aan die voorkant:
