Coolant not flowing?

Recommended Posts

I have a 04 CRF 450, and I recently put a new head and valves in.  After riding for about 2 hours, I washed the bike and just happened to feel one of the radiator hoses.  Usually it feels pretty firm, but I pinched it together with no resistence.  I thought the radiators were plugged, so I pulled both radiators off, and ran water through them, water flowed just fine?  I filled the bile up with coolant, stated, and then felt the hoses again....Same thing???

 

Any ideas?

 

Help would be appreciated.

I think it would be hard to do wrong but all hoses are connect to the right place, correct? The way the pump is designed it would be hard for it to fail to where it just wouldn't move any water but anything is possible. How about letting the bike cool down, remove the radiator cap and then start it. Maybe it's vacuum locking with the cap on it
