Thats sounds like a good idea.I just got my fingers in behind the shroud and removed the cap off of the overflow tank. Put some anti-freeze in a 5 ounce syringe I bought at Pep Boys and squirted it roght on in there. Then put the cap back on with my big old fingers.
My coolant level sits at the full mark when cold and 1.5-2" above that when the bike is all warmed up.Thats sounds like a good idea.
My coolant level is right at the low level mark when the bike is cold and when I'm sitting on it level. Should it be at the full level mark in this condition?
Also did you do 1/2 coolant & 1/2 distilled water per the manual's instruction?
Engine ice isnt hard to find. Most shops carry it instock.I have had the body panels off my bike so much it really isn't that big of a deal to pull the radiator shroud a little bit forward and make more room to add more.
Nathan, as long as it is pre-mixed coolant, you don't have to do the distilled water thing. Engine Ice is supposed to be the best stuff if you can find it.
parts unlimited/drag carriers it, call up Hal and ask him. Im sure he can order it up. Should be about $20 a bottle. Youll need 2 bottles, All of one and like a 1/4-1/3 of another bottle.Unfortunately, SOME of us live in the boon-docks and/or their local shops have gone under. :bigthumbsup:
Ok :bigthumbsup:Nathan, as long as it is pre-mixed coolant, you don't have to do the distilled water thing. Engine Ice is supposed to be the best stuff if you can find it.
Ok Thanks! I'll top mine off tonight with this method. :bigthumbsup:My coolant level sits at the full mark when cold and 1.5-2" above that when the bike is all warmed up.
I'm a fan of reaching behind the shroud and finessing the cap off of the reservoir rather than adding through the overflow tube. I then add coolant using an ear syringe and a section of clear tubing.
