2009 510 TCX issues

Recommended Posts

G'day all.

Ridden my new TCX510 for about 15 hours now and loving every minute of it but i need some help on a couple of issues.

Overheating : Bike overheat's (moderate riding in cool desert dunes ambient temp 28 degrees celcius. ANyone else with cooling issues?

Blew the connection hose already but i knew that was going to happen.

I am already running a cap with higher pressure.

Am i a moron to think the cooling system only spills into the reservoir and does not suck back??

Will the large IMS tank influence cooling negatively due to different airflow?

Contemplating ordering larger capacity custom made radiators and a cooling fan.

all input welcome.

thanks from the big sandbox.

Uptite "Y" & proper jetting should help it run cooler

If you have a higher pressure cap you definitely need an Uptite 'Y'. The stock plastic 'T' is not to be trusted. Also change the radiator interconnect hose between both upper tanks with fuel injection hose. A fan can't hurt. Getting the jetting right will help also. You might see if gmxradiators.com makes any for your bike. Let us know if they do. Good luck. TW :p

I would have to look at it but for the Coolant Recovery Tank to work the hose going into the CRT must go to the bottom! Otherwise coolant will go into the CRT and not go back

Also are you bleeding air out of the system?

here's a coolant checklist someone made- covers some bleeding aspects (burping hoses really)- that's all I could really find for husky's

Dave, do these motors have a bleed hole/bolt on the head like a ktm rfs???

thanks!
