Default high rpm coolant everywhere...

So guys was ridding home and stopped at a stop light and went to move and the resolver cracked and got coolant on my leg and can't figure out why it would crack... I did notice higher RPM the moment before.... HELP.

Evening mate.
This is a bit of an embarrassment for me but I have to ask. I’m from the uk ( if that makes a difference lol?) , could you confirm what your “resolver” is. It’s probably just me not knowing and the whole biking community does, as sometimes things just pass me by without even attempting to enter my head for logging. I’m guessing I would call it a header tank ? Water pump housing ?
Cheers

No idea what a 'resolver' is either (after fiddling with bikes for 45 years), so embarrassment is not necessarily called for.

Pics are good. Pics are always good.

I'm wondering if that was maybe a bad autocorrect for reservoir.

I just tried it on my phone and reservoir does autocorrect to resolver if you aren't paying attention.

The reservoir's get old and crack as the plastic gets brittle and old. Temperature swings plus coolant going acidic, plus age, plus sunlight damage all exagerate this. I went through 3 in the 17 years I had mine. The original 1988 one made it to 2010, then I ordered a used one from ebay which made it 1 year. Then I got lucky and found a NOS one which is still on the bike with whoever has it now.

Good catch!

Flush & fill the coolant, replace the reservoir & radiator cap. A new thermostat may be appropriate as well.
