Hello. When my engine cools, fluid builds up on the radiator cap. According to me, the cap is damaged. Has anyone ever had this problem and can there be an automobile cap that would be compatible?

Thank you very much, i am checking on the other messages but i haven't found anything yet. When you talk about KTM are you talking about KTM motorcycles or a company that manufactures radiator caps? the part number would be well appreciated.Thanks

same thing happened to me recently after changing the coolant. Nothing showing up as compatible with the Rocket. Likely going to pay the $25 for an OEM one if i can't find a better alternative
