The upper radiator hose on my 97 GL with a Vulcan in the cold weather is leaking Antifreeze because the OEM clamp sucks.

How in the heck do you take that hose off at the radiator? It's totally hidden through the body. I'm sure the battery is outa there. I also want to put good clamp on it. Is it possible?

Here's a picture. It's so close I can't show it in a picture. I hope this helps.



Lower right is the Battery. Wire harness going over the top of the hose. there is also a fuse panel above the hose.

Check into purchasing a Chilton's and follow directions. You have to remove the upper radiator support cover. It's the large flat surface above the radiator core. Not to difficult to remove.
