Question about 2006 Aprilia SXV 5.5
Antifreeze/water do not use 100% water, because water has a low boiling point, try and use 80ant/20water, antifreeze has a bit higher boiling point than water so wont get hot too quick. Fluid should not be blowing out any caps, unless when replacing new head gasket and it not seated properly as pressure also leaking out between the engine head through the coolant section and build lots of pressure blowing off the caps. make sure the fan also working properly. recheck your head gasket and its seated and torque the bolts to proper tightness, too tight it will crush the head gasket and too lose will also leaks as both it will cause the gasket not to seat properly. make sure you torque it to the specification, reason is allowing the everything to shrink when its cool and expand when it heat up. Bike motors get heat up very quickly due to its revolutions motor turning and lack of constant airflow and small radiator.
