    Yes, it is essentially the exact same long term high performance fluid according to the dealer`s mechanics .
    I cleaned, flushed the whole system and replaced the fluid on my 9 with this one and it has ran perfect ever since .
    One thing, thou : I replaced the whole fluid amount , so I did not mixed it with the old fluid .

    lol, tastes the same, as a side note, if you have cats DONT ever leave coolant lying on the ground, the little buggers love the taste of it but its deadly poisonous to them.

    My guess will be to disconnect the lower hose on the radiator and go from there .

    You drain it, fill it up with a distilled water and vinegar mixture or a flush you buy (follow the directions and make sure it's safe for Alum) and then run it for a while. Drain it again and fill it with distilled water. Run it and drain it again then fill with coolant. Don't forget to clean the overflow bottle too.

    The bike needs to get up to temperature and open the thermostat for it to cycle through the motor. It's not that hard to do. Since it's summer just drive it a day or so with the flush then drain it.
