filling the reservoir tank

You are the man!! Had to take the front cowls off and tank this past Fall and thought never again!! The coolant level is still not remaining level so I must still need to tighten things. So, maybe one more time apart but then never again with this idea. :congrats:

Did a quick search and found this thread. Thanks!

I wondered why I never really seen the overflow tube hanging down on my bike, so when I went to do this, the damn tube was pinched by Suzuki at the factory and was jammed between a bracket and the side cowling! I had a bitch of a time trying to pull it free!

Also for you R/C nuts like me, I used a nitro filling bottle to do the trick. Worked perfect!

Much simpler than pulling apart the radiator cover. What a time saver.

Fantastic idea. Fan-tas-tic. Added coolant in 45 seconds vs 45 minutes. Took me much longer to get the bottle!

I love the board just for this reason, always a great idea.

Out of curiosity, does the old fluid have to be replaced at all? I have no idea what level or how much fluid I have right now... I did have some spillage one time and it looked like a thicker, green fluid... I'm wondering if it needs to be fully drained and replaced?

I have changed mine and a couple other bikes once each. At around 10,000. You'd be surprised at how much buildup there is in the bottom of that radiator. It's a good thing to do every 2 to 3 years.

What is the danger in overfilling the reservoir
I added way too much
The only danger is that if you have way too much and a bunch starts squirting out......you're back tire is there running over that slick stuff.

I have been following this procedure but my last top-up was done by taking out the over flow hose from the center of the bottom cover and also the side of the radiator, beside it's cover. Lifted the hose up near the cap of the over flow tank and started pumping the coolant in. Much faster filling.
After that, put the hose back at the side of the reservoir and slot back the hose into the center of the cover at the bottom.
