Exhaust Gas Analyzer

Situation - looks like I might be getting combustion products into my coolant.

It has been suggested to start bike and run exhaust gas analyzer over radiator opening to confirm. I am guessing analyzer looks for presence of Carbon Monoxide. So that being said, anyone know the location of a shop or individual who might have one on the south south side of Houston.

Your south of Alvin right? DDGTOMAHAWK is right down the street. You want a
combustion gas kit. It's a turkey baster contraption that you suck the air off the top of the coolant and it pumps it through a liquid that changes colors when CO (or HC, don't remember) passes through it.

Yeah, I'm about 10 miles from Dean. You think he has this contraption at The Shop?

This ^^^

Works much better than trying to sniff over the filler neck with a 5 gas.

Well, per recommendation at KTMTalk, they said to start bike with rad cap off and look for bubbling in coolant.

Well no bubbles just nice swirling. Here's to hoping the black material is just related to water pump impellor grinding down on aluminum carrier for water pump seal.

Still going to follow up with Dean later this week while I await parts.

If there is enough flow to see movement in the coolant you are not going to notice bubbles.

Get someone with a combustion gas kit.

Also, does that scooter use a thermostat? If so it's broke if you can see flow
in the radiator when started cold....

No thermostat.
