Man not sure how to word the question, sorry! I'm mounting up a trail tech but swapping over from another bike so I don't have specific instructions on which coolant tube to splice into. I'm told the right side connecting to the radiator is the flow coming out of the radiator and is cooler. The left side is coming from the engine into the radiator and is hottest. Just trying to make sure that's correct before I splice anything and hook up the sensor. Thanks!

The hose coming out of the top of the engine going to the top of the radiator is the uncooled coolant leaving the engine for the radiator. That's the one you want.
