A lot of us use beer cans or pop cans of our favorite brand... gotta rep your fluid

Use high-temp silicone to stick the hoses in there or have somene weld a fitting onto the top of the can.

You can also buy a 8 oz coolant resevoir for like $10 on eBay that's got fittings already. Sanitys has one, maybe he can give you the link.

That's djryanrhymes but I think it's glass. I could be wrong.

no thanks sanitys. love your avatar though. free mustache rides for the girls in motorhead's avatar.
i dunno what im gonna do yet. i guess i'll think of something. i did make some progress tonight though. plastic welded mounts for my front fairing/number plate. started cutting all the useless brackets off the subframe. modified my gas tank bracket a little bit cuz it was bent. and got a seat pan made. not bad for a couple hours after work.

old cars never had them. like smoke said they are "overflows" so just alittle low is the trick but watch how you go about it. . when it gets above 12 or 16 psi in there it the cap opens up to vent to the overflow so just be carefull. maybe run a hose from the vent to the ground just in case.

Man... my overflow bottle fills up if I leave enough fluid in to actually cool the bike. Running it low enough to not need the bottle usually starves the cooling system.

Look around for Bud/Budlight in special aluminum bottles, I don't like either but the bottles are cool looking, I think they're 20oz. I can get them easy.
