Triumph 955i Daytona pretty much has that exact same setup although connected slightly differently. Never had an issue with a bent bypass hose (at least one I was aware of)

To me it looks like its to eliminate airlock at the top of the head. Its small so as not to counter the action of the thermostat.

My DT engine was the same except it ran through the carb. There was a coolant hose coming straight out the cylinder head into the carb, then another coming from the carb and into the thermostat housing (bypassing the thermostat). I just blanked it all off. But yours looks like it might be necessary to bleed all the air out the top end.

Striving to remain dynamic in an ever-evolving environment and shit like that.

I would say it is to allow the coolant to expand as it initially warms up, without forcing the thermostat to open prematurely, just my 2 pennies worth

SHIT HAPPENS!!!!!

Getting organized.

Working on getting parts/hardware together for TiN coating. Parts are on the bike, in bags & boxes, and just anywhere.

TiN coated titanium hardware from the first batch is all over the bike and engine.



Found 123 more pieces from this bike for coating. Also have about 10 new titanium parts being cut.

Plugging away. And loving it.

I didn't know you could TiN coat Ti parts... is that pretty much the same process as nitriding steel parts?

A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.

Well, more or less. I think there are numerous types of nitride coatings.

The gold TiN coating I'm using is the same as the gold coating on fork tubes. It's done in a vacuum oven, at over 900F degrees.

The coating is vaporized, and sticks to the parts in the oven. When it cools, it's only a few microns thick. Because the OEM engine torque bars and brackets are steel, I had them chromed to prep for TiN. TiN coating is so thin, rust and corrosion can still occur. For external parts, stainless or titanium is the way to go. Probaly okay for steel internal engine parts.

If the part is polished before coating, It'll look polished after coating. Pretty sure it will dull over time, like any polished titanium.

REALLY looking forward to seeing the exhaust stingers and tips in gold TiN.

ok, so the coating adds titanium even though the base metal is titanium. that's what I didn't know.

Feels good to get started with the wiring.

I know very little about motorcycle electricals, so I might have stupid questions and stupid ideas. Hope you guys will keep an eye out, so I don't burn down the bike and garage.

I'm guessing the battery is a good place to start, so I ordered a main fuse to attach between the battery and the m-unit & R/R. Never seen a mini ANL fuse on a bike. The RZ doesn't even have a starter, so there's no heavy wiring or amperage. Looks like ANL fuses are used for high amperage, but I found mini ANL 20 amp fuses. (OEM main fuse on the RZ350 is 20 amps.) Since both sides of the ANL fuse are secured with screws, I thought it would be a better choice than an AGU fuse which is held with spring pressure.
