      The Tusk High Pressure Radiator Cap with Temperature Gauge makes it easy to keep an eye on your machine’s temperature. The radiator caps are designed with a higher pressure rating than OEM caps to raise your coolants boiling point. This reduces boiling over and losing coolant. Equipped on top of the cap is a temperature gauge so you can read how hot or cold your machine is running. Offered in a 1.8kg/cm2 (25.6psi) for most motorcycles, ATV’s, and UTV’s and a 2.0kg/cm2 (28.5psi) for most European machines. Think Tusk when in need of new parts and accessories for your motorcycle, ATV, and UTV.

    Looks cool and is very convenient but....
    Looks cool and is very convenient but it really only works well for cooling systems that have a recovery tank in them. We have found that on dirtbikes with no coolant recovery tank that when using this cap we lose coolant over time from small over pressure cap releases.

    I like knowing what the temperature my bike is running at. We will have to see how long it lasts as the pointer vibrates a lot. So far it’s nice.

    Got this and it always tells me the right temp. It lets me know when I am going to overheat, and it helps me tune my bike so I know what temp it is. I get it to my normal running temp and then I tune it.

    Nice instrument
    This radiator cap with temperature gauge was just what I needed to keep me from overheating my KTM 500 EXC. The first time I installed it I needed to wear gloves and really had to crank it to get it to seat. The process did remove a very thin curl of metal from one of the mating surfaces. After that, the cap fits just like any other cap and I have no problem putting it on or off. The color coding on the gauge makes it easy to read, even when riding. Now that I have one I wonder how I ever got along without one. HIghly recommended.

    I recently purchased this cap. I installed it on my 2017 crf 450rx and my bike started dumping coolant out I figured due to the higher pressure but when I let it cool and checked my radiator coolant their was none at the top? Is this normal?
    Jesse J on Nov 5, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Considering this cap is new, make sure you get it tight. Completely seated. I removed my old one a time or two just to double check coolant level and it was a breeze to install compared to this new one. If it's not completely seated, it can't seal off the radiator and can leak.
    Will this work on my SUV? I don't ride that much and radiator cap is hidden but wouldn't mind one in my SUV.
    Bernard Q on Apr 5, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: This cap is only designed to work with off-road applications.
    I recently bought this temperature gauge. Should my gauge be reading 100 degrees even though my bike has not been started or rode today?
    Zach A on Jun 30, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: is that 100C or 100F? Mine seems pretty spot on. I have given one to a friend that has it on his 450FX with fan and the sensor on that matches his fan sensor pretty well. - what is the ambient temp? Remember this has a temp gurage of boiling water, not atni-freeze under pressure. I would contact RM and tlak to them, you might of got a bad unit or one that the needle is not aligned. But if it is 90 degrees and it read 100... or is it 60 and read 100?
    I recently purchased one of the Tusk Temp Gauge Radiator Caps for my 2016 Husqvarna FE501. I thought I was getting a 1.8 Bar cap (same as OEM) but received a 2.0 Bar Cap. Is this safe to use or should I be getting it exchanged for the correct pressure rating? New cap is unopened.
    Bjorn L on Feb 21, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It's very common to get a higher pressure rating on radiator caps to increase the pressure release. I haven't run into a bike where the extra pressure has ever been a problem. If you overheat your bike (coolant vapor/white smoke pouring out of overflow tube) this will help contain it better. I've gone from 1.1 stock to 1.8 so a 0.2 increase is well within reason.
    I have Fluidyne FPS radiators on my bike, will this cap fit?
    RYAN R on Mar 5, 2018

    Will the 2.0 work on the 2008 KTM 250XCF? On here it says a 2.0 would work, but I have a 1.8 on right now and OEM says 20.3psi. I'm extremely confused.
    Ryan L on Jul 27, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: You shouldnt have any issues running a 2.0 on your machine.

    I recently bought the Tusk High pressure radiator cap for my New Yamaha YZ250F 4 stroke. It only has .6 hrs. on it. It imedetly started dumping fluid out the overflow hose.

    Since each dirt bike has different levels of operating temperatures, is the cap altered for each type of bike in terms of where the green/yellow/red limits are?
    Kyle M on May 3, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Its all a general chart so that its close enough for all bikes as far as the green, yellow and red are. But there is a temperature listing in degrees (numbers) listed above the colors so if you know what your bikes running temperature is, you can look at the numbers on the gauge.
