YZ coolant overflow tank?

9 posts in this topic

(for those who ride hard in the woods on their yz's) just a question, anyone put a coolant overflow tank on their yz like the wr's have i know you would have to customize it somehow but wonder if anyone had done that......

i was thinking about it cuz sometimes in races i would overflow(basically only if i got in a sticky situation like a mud bog, slick hill climb etc and lose a bunch but then i got a high pressure rad cap seems to work.....

but still i was wondering if anyone has done this.......just curious

customize

ahh my favortie word

using a turkey baster you can easily rig one up. some people use some sort of tubing but i forget the deminsions at moment, and they have it right in front of their rad. :ride:

i heard the plans were floating around in the CRF forums....

I'm getting ready to add a recovery tank to mine. The Motion Pro bottle looks a bit bulky and I'm not sure where I would mount it. I think I'm going to get the WR bottle and hoses. I think I need the WR number plate too.

Turkey baster overflow on mine for the exact same reasons you spoke about.

Plus, do a search for 'coolant recipes', to try new stuff. After I added my new coolant recipe it doesn't spew near as much anymore. Actually, it doesn't spew at all.

The turkey baster.

I'm going to try the wr overflow tank for my 06 450. If I buy the stock tank, does everything I need come with it or do I need to get some extra stuff? Also, how do I trim the plastic so that it will fit?
