i like a "factory" set up. if there are no gaskets and no sealers from the factory, i dont like to put them there.

with that said, my friend is not one of those guys and did use a sealer for his. He still had to eventually replace it due to cracks in the boot.

like i said, i think for this reason the rad valve is a superior part compared to what i feel is a really cheap way of building a cage like vforce does.

If you wanted a "factory" set up you wouldn't have a rad valve or V force. I've seen allot of people on various forums comment that v-force is cheap and a crappy part because it's made of plastic. Each part of a motorcycle has different characteristics required of its material. In the case of a reed cage, light weight and low thermal conductivity come to mind. Aluminum is heavier and has better thermal conductivity than plastic. Hmm. If aluminum was the best material for every part, we'd be riding bikes with aluminum fenders and number plates.....
