This is a FYI , I found roughly 6 inactive posts, ( posters that haven't been on the forum in over 6 months, some with replies and no answer) As a mod I can send PM / email messages to posters that don't respond to their for sale adds when others are interested but no response from seller, this is a last resort.

Found roughly 10 posts with SOLD somewhere in the thread******better is PM me to delete or use http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums/23-sale/122210-sale-clean-up-please-delete.html post your link of the ad here, I give you a Like when deleted

Found another roughly 5 that sounded like the item was sold but not sure , However within minutes I noticed a new post declaring it sold :thanx:


The remainder got bumped to the top, some acknowledge that it still is for sale, one add I cleaned up 27 posts in the thread that said parts sold, editing makes your add easier to read and eliminates questions like is it really really really sold or ya still got it >:)

I just discovered that my V1 has a small coolant leak. Just a couple of drops. Of course the drops seem to be coming from an inexcessible location somewhere between the radiator and the cylinders. I would really rather not tear everything down for such a small leak. Dare I use something like radiator stop leak to quell the leak? Any recommendations? I just changed the coolant :-(

Thanks
Randy

In my experience "stop leak" and similar products don't work as advertised. There is not much to remove either. I would be inclined to find the leak and address the root cause. Half ass measures usually result in half ass results IMO.

I wonder if the clue, Randy will turn out to be that you just changed the coolant....

Perhaps a clamp, hose or something else got overlooked or gave-way. Not sure how old your Versys hoses are- I replaced my gen 1 hoses a couple years ago out of "preventive guilt" so as to be able to cross that off my list of things that might strand me out on a trip or something. I will probably do a water pump and thermostat at some point in similar fashion to hopefully offset my Karma. I also prefer to have some spare take-off parts that were working when I pulled them off to fall back on in a pinch.

Just me brother. Let us know what you find. Oh, do you run a stone guard in front of your radiator??????

Hope you didn't take on some unidentified flying object or some such "missile".

All the best man.

The road side of the radiator is pristine. Not a single bent fin . If it's the radiator, the problem is on the engine side. The hoses I can see look good. The only thing I can think of in that location would be a head gasket somewhere between the cylinders :-(

The motor runs good. No smoke and the plug color is spot on. So the coolant is coming out, not going in.

Mine had a tiny leak too, just a couple drips on the lower fairing on the left side.

I found the hose clamps loose and when I tightened them they promptly stripped. I went and bought regular hose clamps instead of the wimpy ones they use.

I believe it fixed the problem.
