Radiator maintenance is Periodically
There are some things that most often lead to leaks in the radiator. Namely: corrosion (rust), collision (either due to collision or due to hit the radiator fan switch). Especially for the fiber material, other causes are heat and pressure of the water radiator. As a result of these causes, may be formed cavities or cracks in plates (fiber) radiator where the water seeping out. Due to leaking radiator, the cooling system is not working properly. As a result, engine temperature was not controlled and there was overheating when the engine continues to be forced to work without cooling. We certainly have memorized when the engine overheating. Because of the heat that exceeds the tolerance, the machine might not sound normal, less powerful, wasteful of fuel, even broke down while driving on the road. Too bad, right? Before experiencing such problems, anticipate the occurrence of leaks in the radiator. Prevention can be done by treating the cooling system. For this, there are some tips that we recommend: 1. Perform routine checks on the water radiator reserve tank. If the water level in the reserve tank is under the MIN line, add immediately. If it is visibly dirty and looks cloudy, drain the water and replace it with a new radiator. 2. Use special radiator fluid when filling the radiator (coolant). In addition to helping the process of cooling, the liquid inside is also a substance that can reduce the corrosion of the radiator and engine. Corrosion and dirt on the cooling water is not very good because it can interfere with the cooling process. We recommend using water glycol coolant manifold ethlylene high quality. 3. Clean the radiator grille with spray water on the radiator fins. 4. Check for leaks both hoses and radiator. Hose leaks can be monitored manually by looking at the presence or absence of droplets. But, to check for leaks in the radiator must use a special tool (sst or special service tools). Motorcycle radiator you will be checked with this tool when it comes to the workshops. 5. Condition of the radiator and cooling system performance will be maintained if you routinely perform periodic servicing.
