Yamaha YFZ450 2004 - Radiator swap

Yamaha YFZ450 2004 model - radiator swap

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello,
I'm replacing the radiator in my YFZ450 with a new OEM unit from the local Yamaha dealer.( a large stick went thru the original radiator !)
This looks very easy.........however what I'm not sure about is this - is there an air bleed screw on head/cylinder or somewhere that needs to be played with to make sure no air gets trapped in the engine's water jacket [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img].?? ( I'm only worried about this, as I used to have a Suzuki LT500R, where this was a real issue).

Thanks in advance.

I wouldnt think that would be an issue on that bike. I have never heard of it anyways. There are a couple of people on here with YFZ`s that could shed some light on it.I think you would be safe making sure you have the correct amount of fluid in it.

I also have never heard of anyone needing to do this. I wouldn't worry about it, but see what the guys on yfzcentral.com think.
