That flask would zip-tye behind the number plate real easy. I have a 250 mL plastic bottle from the lab zip-tyed behind mine (looks just like the Motion Pro bottle). Works great, although next time I'll use a 125 mL bottle, the 250 is just too big.

This just amazes me when it comes up. Don't waste your time on an overflow. Spend the money and put in Evans Npg-r coolant. It's waterless and will not boil over.
I have used this on several bikes and many friends I convinced.
My son in law just last weekend was riding with 4 other friends on hondas Kawasaki and another Yamaha. They were in some really nasty single track in which all of the bikes boiled over except the Yamaha with the Evans in it. The Yamaha with the Evans was checked when they all got back to camp and it lost zero coolant. All the rest had lost dangerous amounts of coolant.
I also have a friend that rides a KTM 525 that boiled over all of the time. He installed an aftermarket fan. Great idea until he shuts off the bike and the fan coninues to run and drain the battery. He has to kick start it after that. Tried to talk him into Evans but he just doesn't get it. Pretty funny.

Your buddy with the KTM needs a switch :lol:

I haven't lost any coolant in the last several trips out, and I run Prestone EG 50/50 w/distilled water. :thumbsup:

No it's so much easier just to put in Evans. No lost coolant at all and from the temp strips that were installed shows that it runs slightly cooler.
Like I stated, when you get into real nasty slow single track the Evans really shines while the normal mix boils out. Just a no brainer.

I also run the Evans in my Powerstroke and pull a 5th wheel
toy hauler. In the Powerstoke, you drill a hole in the radiator cap and run zero pressure in the system. It's a slightly different mix than used in the dirtbike. The dirtbike version runs at normal
pressures.The stuff is bad a&$!

Water! Evans is waterless thus having a boiling point in the 400* range.
Go to Evanscoolant.com and read up on the npg-r version. The stuff is simply amazing.
Engine ice is made to raise the boiling point. But with water you just can't come close to Evans.
