Reinstalling a radiator on my ZX6R...
I had to be on travel for a couple of month, so I had to completely drain the coolant from my engine since it was racing coolant which is not anti-freeze, and I have a non-heated garage.
I'm about to put my baby back together, and I'd like to know if I am supposed to use some kind of goop on the radiator hose before sealing them back on, or do I just slip them back on and tie them with the hose clamps.
The reason I'm asking is because it gets awfully hot in this neck of the woods in the summer and I don't want to spill a bunch of coolant on the track during a race.
