I purchased a used raptor coolant catch bottle on E-bay complete with the 2 hoses for about $25 and rigged it up to fit on my 05. I used to have the turkey baster mod on there but that only held about 2 oz of fluid and it would boil out of that.

Try a 1.6 radiator cap off a Kawi or one from Outlaw.
