Hi Guys,

My coolant filler neck is broken in two. Has anyone got a spare that they could sell me?

Thanks

Pretty sure andrew (pod70) would have one. Otherwise if you search cb-1 thermostat there are a few on ebay.

I've broken one of those before. Replacing the seal i wasn't paying attention and tightened it down with two seals fitted. You'll probably want a new seal to reassemble it with as it'll be dried out by now.

How did yours break?

I've got one, send me a PM with your address and I'll work out the postage & a price.
As Aaron says you'll probably need a new seal too

A_Morti, I've no idea how it broke, just old age I guess, snapped clean off.

I've done a temporary repair with some Plastex. I use it all the time for plastic panels and it's great but I'm not sure if it will hold up to the temperature and pressure of the coolant. It's on the bike now, took it up to temperature, seemed pretty solid but we'll see.

If you've not tried it it's a handy kit to have in the garage.

Pod70, I've sent you a PM, many thanks.

I never did try plastex but could be worth a go to rebuild a missing lug on the rear cowl.

Yes, plastex would be ideal for rebuilding the lug on the rear cowl. You get a small mold in the kit to help copy parts. I used it on to repair every panel on my old XJ a few years ago and not one of the cracks ever failed, they were as strong as new.

I'll take the bike out for a short run tomorrow just to see if it holds up.

It's good stuff plastex, very popular with racers for some reason 🙄
I'll try and get your part out tomorrow or Thursday at the latest.

Thanks Pod70. I'll put the filler neck on the bike when it arrives. The repaired filler neck is holding up so far, Ive been on the bike all morning and no sign of a leak. I must admit I didn't think it would last even a day.

Pod70, the filler neck arrived yesterday and I fitted it this morning. I took the bike out for a run today and it's all running really well.

Thanks for your help, much appreciated.
