    For a shop syringe, try a boat store West System epoxy syringe. Those stand up to just about everything. A two pack is $5 to $10. I have been using the same one for a couple of years. They apparently last just about forever. I know hot engine oil, fork oil, brake fluid, gasoline and brake clean doesn't hurt them.

    I’ll give them a try. Thanks. I have been using syringes from Tractor Supply and they are one time use.

    Vacuum bled it until I wasn't getting anything else out, but the reservoir is still full. Decided to reverse bleed with the syringe, and it's not going in.

    Something is impeding flow. What the frig.

    Pull the nipple then try from the top. Then pull the hose off at the caliper, try from the top.

    Could be a sticker, a grain of rice... Or azz I ham gettin to know you, you might be trying to bleed the clutch cable? image.jpeg

    And the radiator overflow tube rerouted to the front frame tube with a zip ty.
    It was pointed at the top of the transmission.

    Quality check under the tank, hardware is KTM style stuff, no complaints. The rubber is like any Kawi or Yamaha Ive had in the last five years. Nothing special, does the job.

    The KTM stuff is better formed, less kinky when bent, (ok, it usually isnt bent but formed). The hose from the T to the head has a lil crimp where it bends from the T. Noticed it and tried to relax it but its not better. But, it is still wide open. Not an issue.

    With the thermo delete, the rads show flow right at startup now. Boom.

    Oh, a nice lil feature is the retention chain to the rad cap.

    Somebody put their nephew on that detail. " Cecil, do find Jeffery something to do at the company dear."

    Oh alright I will find something to keep that imbecile busy!

    He might have been told to "wrap that hose in a spring" too and just went bananas cause they are everywhere! On contact points sure but not on everything. :imaposer
