Yamaha R6 5EB

Good evening,

Iím completely new to bikes and I have recently purchased a Yamaha r6 5eb track bike.

After using it last Wednesday I have noticed that the pipe that goes into the coolant bottle lid is missing.

I have looked at the hoses on my rad and they all look to be in place, but Iím not sure which hose it is that links to the coolant lid to trace that hose. Is anyone familiar with this?

Thanks Matt

Re: Yamaha R6 5EB

It just runs straight from the radiator over to that bottle. For my bike there are three smaller diameter hoses that connect below the radiator cap on the right side of the bike. One of the three run over to that coolant reservoir bottle over on the left side of the bike. If I recall correctly, the other two run to the auto-choke cylinder on the throttle body.

I'm not sure why they would be monkeying around with the coolant reservoir. Who knows what else they may have messed with, and why...
