Radiator vibration isolator inspection

Recommended Posts

Here is just an FYI for mechanics and owners alike,


Next time you have the bottom cowl off take a really good look at the 2-3 rubber vibration isolator's that hold the radiator on its mount and then on the left bottom side of the engine there may be a third. If this is cracking part way through then it is just a matter of time before it breaks all the way though. When re-installing the new one make sure you hold the base of the bolt plate edge with something so you don't twist this and damage the isolator as you tighten the nut. Do it on both ends. Make sure the isolator is in as much a neutral and stress free position as possible. It may have a little bend to it, but a slight amount may be un-avoidable.
