Gave my 03 vee a coolant flush recently and the front connector that the front hose(from the thermostat) connects to ( to the front cylinder)started leaking at the base. Pulled everything out and the 2 hoses were shot. Also the 0 ring seal was shredded (front cylinder connector). Took 4 flushes to run the water clear from a coal black to finally clear ( before i took it apart). I got impatient waiting for the 0 rings from Bandit so tried a few of my own to a no go each time. Used RTV silicone too. Not sure if a sealant is required hear. Well, leaked both times. Even giving it the 24 hours the instructions say. Would appreciate any feedback by anyone that has done this before themselves. Thanks in advance!
