radiator hoses swelling due to air
I own a 2001 RC51 and i recently had to replace a few hoses and a thermostat on my bike and since then i have had a lot of swelling on the hose that goes from the back of the Right radiator (as you sit on the bike) it seems to always have air in the cooling system is there a bleeder or something in this system. I have tried cycling the system with the radiator cap lose and off to get the air out but nothing is working so far. I even pulled the water pump cover and cranked the bike to ensure the pump was spinning and it was any advice will be help full thank you in advance.
