Cooling system leaks
I was losing a small amount of coolant from the 888 at the DSC trackday and occasionally on hot days (ie about once last year). I've finally got around to having a good look and I don't seem to be overheating as there is no sign of it blowing out the expansion tank. Its difficult to see for certain but I do have signs of a bit of seepage past a couple of clips on the water hoses and a clear drip from the bleed screw on the vertical cylinder (which is certainly tight).
To play safe, I've got a set of Samco hoses and clips on order (Racebikebitz.com are still giving a 10% discount and free SS clips to DSC members). I also want to add a radiator sealant while I am at it so can anyone recommend something for Ducati engines?
