need help re coolant

can some one open there radiator cap make sure bike is cold and check level preferably fill to neck , then run bike till 4 bars on graph or when fans kick in then let cool and check n see if any level change, mine is loosing small amounts but it should have burped by now, from when I drained the coolant for racing (glycol) banned tooooo slippery!. I may have a blown headgasket and it hasn't seen the track yet.

Interesting question.

When I pulled mine apart for the oil change there was nothing in the right or left reservoirs.

I removed the left hand reservoir and topped the right reservoir to the "cold" line.

I then ran it for a bit after the oil change and the coolant in the reservoir disappeared.

Dunno what's going on here. 🤔

Well im doing more tests I ran the bike last night coolant to max on reservoir only one on mine so far, then fill rad to top of neck then ran to 100deg c, left over night and all the coolant from reservoir gone .So now I refilled to reservoir to max line and repeated the same up to 100 deg and saw the coolant move up in the reservoir y 1/4 in or 6mm for us kiwis and watched it and at 34deg some had been sucked back may be 1/8 3.2mm
now ill check tomorrow morning when it dead cold then repeat this all over again to prove it is consistant. Fyi my coolant was gone and also down in the radiator when I pulled mine apart after its running in miles/kms. Ill keep ya in the loop mate:wink:

So what is involved to check the coolant level and add coolant. I can barely see the reservoir through the right side fairing, but cannot see the level.

Right you are. I don't like that. But thanks for the info. Ducati sure packaged this bike pretty compact. Makes for a great motorcycle, but seems more involved to work on. I am still very much in the stare at the bike and wonder where stuff is phase. The owners manual is not that helpful for a lot of stuff.

Sweet mate, well that last test, the coolant returned to the line it started on so I did another tonight consistency is what im after. It amazes me how coolant flows back from the tank to rad below 34deg c the cap must have a wax type plunger as it cant be pressure surely ! more investigation on my part into the operation of that cap:angel:

FYI it only took two tries (coolant additions) to get mine to behave consistantly.

We'll be on the track with my V4S and my 1199S on July 8th.

Gonna be interesting to run the two together. :grin:

Video coverage of the V4S being tracked would be great
