    Previously went to hrc bottles but have put my lights back on now.

    Does this (in road trim) go back to the coolant bottle (rear swingarm), go to a overflow bottle elsewhere or simply exit as an overflow (toward the ground)

    Thanks in advance

    from the rad cap the tube should go to the expansion reservoir. From the reservoir to a discharge tube (next to fuel overflow pipe on my RR8)
    Check section E18 on your diagram

    Thanks. Luckily thr pipe 17 is still in place so quite an easy connection to complete again.

    If that wasn't there it's a bloody nightmare to get to so lucky there.

    Thanks for the reply

    Hello, how did you mount the HRC bottle? Did you have a bracket or just tie wrapped somewhere?

    Cheers

    Ta, I was hoping you had found a cheaper source of bracket than the HRC one.
    I'll knock something up in the garage to mount it to.
