Bought a used 03 ZRX1200R w <9000mi. The odor is present when the engine warms up and I can see some discoloration at the hose clamps, but the fluid level is good. So the leak seems minimal and likely steaming off. Is it advisable to have the o-rings in the tubes replaced if I decide to pull the radiator down and replace the hoses, etc? Local performance shop, that seems to know allot about the ZRXs said pulling the steel tubes is a bugger.
Also, the rubber grommet is still in the middle of the screen. I've heard some take it off before it rubs a hole in the radiator. ????
BTW, love this bike. First REAL MC since I sold my Madura 1200, twenty years ago.
