    1999 SLX cooling line question

    I'm putting together my SLX and got it about back together. I ran into two fittings near the exhaust outlet that I have no clue where they go. I'm pretty sure I have all my cooling lines hooked up but not sure what would go there.

    So can anyone tell me what goes to the fittings in the picture below? I guess that's what I get for waiting so long to put it back together.

    Are either or both of those fittings actually open into the exhaust, or are they sealed off internally?

    That's a good question, I can't believe I didn't check that. Thanks.

    On a 96 (and maybe a 97 or 98 too) those fittings are open and are part of the system.

    On a 99 they are sealed off and are no longer part of the system.

    They should be closed and not used on a 99 slx but check to make sure that a previous owner didn't open them.

    Cool, sounds good. I will double check it when I get home. I didn't remember taking anything off of there, but it's been like 9 months since I took it apart.


    I hope it runs good. I've had it for 2 years now, seemed like had an air leak when I got it then I let it sit. Just finally got around to working on it.
