Hi,
Can anyone help me with this - I fitted a new radiator to my motorbike and the fluid seems to be pouring out of this little L shaped thing on the side. I'd assumed that it would be some type of bleeding device, but it seems to be functioning as a hole at the moment.
I've enclosed a picture. The thing I'm talking about has blue antifreeze leaking out.
I'm looking for some suggestions about how to fill up my coolant system.
Thanks

RyanDD

Hi Ryan,
no it wasn't on the old radiator, and it didn't have any other pipes connected to it.

Looks like you have the wrong radiator. Either get it changed or blank it off.

I'm just a bit puzzled as to why this is fitted - surely it must have some purpose. It's definately the right radiator - it's taken me about 10 hours to fit (mods needed) so I'm not keen to change!!.
Thanks

It's the right rad but took 10 hours to fit and has a pipe the other rad didn't.
It's the wrong rad mate.
