Keep your cool
Simple steps to refresh your fluid
Let the bike cool
When changing your coolant, it is important to let the bike cool, to prevent any scalding incidents. Remove the radiator and header tank caps. Make a note of the condition and level of the fluid.
Unscrew the drain bolt and measure the amount of fluid that comes out. Compare the amount to that stated in the manual, as this could help indicate a leak.
Pour your coolant into the radiator slowly, to let any air escape through the header tank. Pour the rest of the liquid into the header tank so it sits between the high and low marks. Replace both caps.
Squeeze any hoses you can reach with the bike upright and rock it gently from side to side. Start the bike and let it idle for 30 seconds, before re-checking the levels in the rad and header.
