well not quite my bucket, rather my Transalp :mad:

its leeking coolant out of it, took a picture to save trying to explain







so between the cylinders there is that metal tube/pipe connecting them together, just under the carbs.

have spoke with my local garage and they have confirmed its just for transfering coolant between the cylinders.

anyone else had this problem?????

it was weeping slightly before today, but had a look today after a quick run and there was more then usual on the engine :(

help........

I think that if you remove the two spring clips, you can then move the connecting tube one way or the other. If you are careful, you should then be able to hook the 'O' ring out of its seat and replace with a new one. Then move the connecting tube to the other side, with its nice new 'O' ring, and replace the other one. This is the method described in the Haynes manual, by the way.

A bit fiddly, but it should be possible.

You will, of course, have to drain the coolant from the engine. But it will probably need changing anyway.
