husaberg fe 501 2004 coolant question

Hi....
I am new to here and also a new husaberg fe 501 2004 owner.... I purchased today ☺
I am new to enduro bike and have come from riding bikes on the roads (GSXR 1000)
I wonder if anyone on here could help me.... ??
My husaberg spits coolant out of the overflow at times... is this Normal? How much coolant should I expect to see / use.... should I fit a overflow tank... also my radiator cap is a 1.4, is this correct as i was told it should be at least a 1.8 ????
I would appreciate any help...☺
By the way I love the bike, it flys. I took it out in the woods where I used to ride off road bikes growing up, and loved it. ☺

Hi

Unfortunately it's not uncommon in tight and technical stuff.

Yes you can get the 1,8 bar, but even then sometimes it happens. You can make the carb a bit richer on the idle region, and can also install a fan.

also, don't overfill the radiator. coolant level should be just on top of the fins.
Thanks from bushmechanic

Hi

I think in the 04 you can already install the one used by ktm for many years

It's the SPAL Type VA32-A101-62A 12V

Here you have a pict

Hi again ☺
I plan on fitting a small catch tank. .. do I need to change my radiator cap to allow it to be sucked back in?
Has anybody on here done this before on a fe 501?

Thanjs
