just enough to regulate the temperature a bit sense the engine head is very hot it would likely be at the front of the carb, but sense aluminum transfers heat so well it could also be at the back of the carb.... I find that very Bazaar ! coolant line to the carbs ! who'd a' thunk it ??? LOL...
I'll have to pay closer attention to my bike when I pull the carbs off
but I didn't notice anything like that before... it could be only the older models have that...i dunno !
also probably why they added the carbon canister and air pollution crap on the bike as well.... one thing leads to another and it was needed !
that is a new one on me !
thanks for the info...Anthony !

No only if live cross the pond like in Australian
