Your just jealous that I've been out playing in the garage and your stuck indoors being a keyboard warrior :p:lol:

Now that was a low blow and for the record I'm not crying I've got something in my eye :byebye:

OK just for @andybp not green and purple :)

 

I have found the water inlet and outlet on the Hayabusa engine point in the opposite direction to the location of the radiator so it ends up with lots of bends and connections - I don't like that!

So I thought rather than trying to tidy up the mess just attack the problem at the root - so I needed a thick circular chunk of aluminium to make an out let.

 

I don't have one but I do have this

:lol:

 

No problem then -

Cut a square -

drill a hole in the centre(ish)  tap it and put a bolt in then cut the head of the bolt 20 minutes in the lathe and we get -

a bit longer and we have

That allows a pipe

bit of shaping and it now looks like the original

But when that is welded on the pipe will come out the other side :thumbs:

 

Just need to sort the inlet which is a bit harder and the distance to the expansion tank then I can set the pipe angles and length and weld it together :)

 

Inlet coming soon
