Where does this go???
 
I would like to know from the brains trust - where does this pipe go from the top of the waste gate?

Also has anyone polished the catch tank and coated in clear and does it last, seems a shame to paint it. I wire brushed it today.

The pipe on the top of the wastegate is a vent to atmosphere (so the diaphragm inside the "bell" can move freely) - it originally passed up through the engine tin, in the general area beneath the engine compartment relay panel, and is not connected to anything.

Thanks mate.
I thought I had stumbled onto a real issue when I found it passing through the engine tin and forming a U shape going nowhere.

I remember wondering about that open pipe thing when I saw it for the first time, too.

Hey, any chance your screen name, the SBK part, is a reference to World Superbike? I ask, because I love that series and don't think I've missed a race on TV since about 1997 or so (started watching when I was amateur roadracing motorcycles and have followed it, along with MotoGP, ever since).

As much as I miss my bike and follow the super bikes and Moto GP it actually is my number plate and the first initials of me (Steve) my wife and son.

Where does this go???

I bet that's not the first time you asked that....


sorry, I see titles that have a good one liner to go along with them.

The oil drip tank steel parts will be protected from rust and look best spray painted satin black with engine enamel rated up to at least 500 degrees.
Wire brushing it was a bad idea in all respects but you did it already. it was probably powder coated before.

For new paint to stick clean it with laquer thinner or acetone and hand sand the entire thing with 220 or 320 sand paper. 320 will wear out real fast and 220 will last longer, and for that part will do a better job of leaving a smooth scuffed finish for the paint to stick to.
Let the tank get warm but not hot in the sun and then the first coat of paint should be real light so the paint doesn't fisheye. After it has flashed off for around 5 minutes spray on at least two wet coats to protect it and make it look nice.
