Coolant recovery Tank Install Instructions RMZ 450
Install is shown on a 2005 Suzuki RMZ450

1. Remove the seat, gas tank (if needed), side # plates, and overflow hose
connected just below the radiator cap.

2. Route the ¼” hose starting from the radiator to the air-box. Leave about 6”
extra hose near the radiator cap for adjustment later. Be careful choosing your
route, avoid kinking the hose, or routing it where it can get pinched by
reinstalling the gas tank. Follow the stock clutch cable.  Secure the hose along
the way using the supplied 4" zip ties.

3. Drill a 3/8" hole in the top of the air-box to route the hose to the CRT.

4. Cut off about 10” of the left over hose for the breather-overflow or use the
supplied smaller breather hose.

5. Place the CRT (coolant recovery tank) under the sub frame as shown in the
picture below. Attach the hoses. You can secure the hoses with zip ties
although not necessary. The rounded part of the tank should point up and
toward the rear of the bike, see the pictures below for correct placement. Zip tie
the tank to the sub-frame with the supplied 14" zip ties.

6. Route the overflow tube to vent out the back behind the side # plate. The
1/4" hose supplied will be easier to route than the 3/8" line shown in the
pictures. Route the breather-overflow hose where
you would like. (I routed it behind the fender)

7. Now you can top off your radiator and fill the CRT (about 2-3 ounces) with
coolant ( I used a plastic squeeze bottle).  Fill the CRT and the hose to the
radiator so there is very little if any air in the line. Attach the hose to the
radiator overflow and put the radiator cap on. You only need to fill the CRT so
the lower barbed end is submerged by coolant when the bike is cold. Not too

8. Re assemble the bike. Enjoy keeping your Coolant where it belongs!
