Busted radiator hose - what does it do?
I have recently noticed that one of the hoses that is supposed to be connected to my radiator is no longer connected. It is the one that goes from the top of the radiator on the right hand side (immediately below the cap) to the bottom of the reservoir. Someone has obviously tried to reattach it using some type of bog/putty and it is no longer attached to the radiator at the top (also, the hose has bog in it :(
My question is, what does this hose do? Is it just an overflow? Do I really need to fix it?
I've been running my bike like this for ages and it never over heats. It generally runs at 80-85 degrees (175-185 Fahrenheit) and never really gets over 112 degrees (235 Fahrenheit).
Thanks for the help guys ;)
