    I am currently going through the restoration/rebuild process on my Africa Twin and I'd like to pressure test the cooling system while it is still on the bike. I'm in the Portland area... Unfortunately can't bring the bike to you as it's in pieces, so I'd have to leave collateral if that's alright.

    It has adapters for auto radiators. I have no idea if it will fit your H. m/c.
    P/M if interested.

    I used the harbor freight one to test my 990. It works ok.

    Looks like Motomantra's radiator tester for cars doesn't have the correct adapter (thanks anyway!) Anyone else happen to have one? Thanks for the HF recommendations.
