2002 Tiger: The coolant in my recovery tank is blue. When I flushed the engine this weekend the coolant coming out of the
engine and radiator is red, rusty red. The coolant line from the
radiator/cap to the recovery tank goes into the tank at the side.
The internal-vertical hose that goes to the bottom of the tank goes
to a hose that exits under the bike. I bought this bike new so
it appears to me that the factory got these hoses reversed. The
way it is, the radiator, when it cools, can't draw any coolant back
into the engine/radiator because the opening on the side of the tank is above the coolant level.

Does anyone out there have a 2002 plumbed like this?

Thanks, TinManTwo

Tinman, I thought that the pipes were of different diameters and so could,nt be switched around?, You have me thinking now and I will have to look at the weekend.
