Anyone ever hear of burping a liquid cooled sled after rebuild? How is it done on a yamaha vmax? Thanks in advance. [BeerPull] [Sleds]

You throw it over your shoulder and lightly pat the tank untill it releases all the pent up gasses and your ready to go ![;)]

Tilt the front end up at least a couple of feet. On a tilt trailer, hanging from a chain in the garage, whatever. Run the engine and the air will go uphill. Burp.

on cats especially you need to do that. they get an air pocket above the exhaust port. and your new shiney piston becomes black real fast.

Make sure once youve "burped" your sled until you can't fit anymore that you take some fluids on your first ride. As the riding and vibrating and what not will get basically every little bit of air out making room for more fluid.
