Overflow for radiator. OMG.....

Was getting the bike running and this is what I saw in my coolant over flow bottle. Gross

And the bike runs great and there is no over heating. Runs around 210 on hot days and around 160-190 on mild days.

PS not the kid lol

What's the best way to clean this besides taking the whole bottle off and in the dishwasher hahaha

Been there, done that (although nowhere near as dirty as that LOL). Grab a couple of baby bottle brushes from your local dollar store (or use the ones in your house already without telling the woman; trash them after usage, of course heh).

This is why one has to change their coolant every two years.
The additives the prevent corrosion from the water fall out of suspension.
Then the coolant becomes more corrosive, which starts eating at the aluminum components.

This is one reason why I'm going to switch over to Evans Waterless Coolant as I put my bike back together.
No water, no corrosion. Good for the life of the engine.
Boiling point of 375 deg F.
