    Hi all,

    I took the cover off my vit today after being away for this month and noticed this cable. The panel below it was loose. Can anyone tell me what it is and what it should be connected to? No idea why it came loose.

    Thanks so much,

    Amos

    Radiator overflow! Popped back into to the top of the radiator where it belongs

    Um, isn’t that supposed to be soldered in to the radiator?

    It may not have so much pressure like the radiator inside, but the bikes do open the cap and exchange fluid with the reservoir like everytime they warm up.

    Mine is soldered…

    Hoes

    Might need to replace the radiator.

    Update – with advice from a husky mechanic, used plumbing rated epoxy to secure it on.

    Wow!  Glad it’s repaired, kind of…   I would have advised them that a new radiator will be installed under warranty.
