Re: VULCAN COOLANT LEAK KNOWLEDGE BASE
This is something I just have to do. I've been smelling rad fluid for a couple of years now, yet I see no evidence of any leaks anywhere. I've never removed the gas tank before, which is why I haven't tightened all the hose clamps underneath the tank.....yah, I know, I'm a big chicken. However, if someone could send me a link, with visual step by step explanation on how to remove the gas tank I just might give it a try once it warms up here. I'm tired of getting that smell, and something must be done. I keep checking my rad overflow bottle, which at times is a tad low, but hardly worth mentioning.
Great thread, and I look forward to reading more about this Kaw problem. BTW way, I ride a 2003 Vuclan 1500 Carbed.
