coolant overflow relocation questions
« on: June 02, 2012, 10:56:57 pm »
I want to relocate the overflow bottle on my now half/faired Connie.  I took the lower fairing off due to a long ride coming up this summer in very warm places.  I am having trouble finding a small overflow bottle.

Question #1:  Will the original bottle fit behind the battery with tool tray removed?
Question #2:  Any pictures from those that have gone before?
Question #3:  If #1 does not work how do I modify a regular bottle to work?

Thanks everybody in advance, Wayne

I have heard of folks using coolant bottles off of other bikes. The problem for me is that I don't remember which ones folks used (there was more than one). I bet we could do a search and turn up something. But I remember them being relocated behind the battery box or under the right side (side) cover. Now I'll have to go look or it's going to bug me that I can't remember. And somebody like Willy will remember off the top of his head about two seconds after I post this and go looking.  :-[

This is the type of overflow bottle that I used. I mounted it under the seat behind the tool tray.
