Oil cooler line blew..?Why?
So this is not RR related..This was on my VTR1000..But since this forum is so great, I thought I'd render your help...
Basically I'm using a high pressure hose from my case to the oil cooler and it blew, or tore open, spraying oil everywhere..Huge mess..It tore between where I had a hose clamp on one end and a zip tie onto my cylinder..
Question is...How did this happen? Was it because of heat from the cylinder? Or was it because there was too much pressure? On this ride I was really giving the bike some throttle to see if the main jet change worked..So this means I needed to be at full throttle..
It was only a 10 minute ride..I've done longer rides with the same setup, hoses and everything and no oil leaks...
Any ideas? Any help and or input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
