Re: Help, where is the coolant drain plug? (Shrewd)

you have to pull one of the coolant hoses I use the lower one on the waterpump it works well.

</TD></TR></TABLE> Just did a flush, it spewed some today when I came to a stop at 257. Seemed like it pissed nearly a cup, I assume out of the overflow hose (couldnt see). Since I dont know my ass from a hole in the ground when it comes to the RC. I disconnected the lower hose on the water pump, and used pressure (hose) to push the old crap out. I had no clue where to fill though (where the hell is it?). I ended up just doing it little by little through the catch/overflow can. Seems to have reached an equilibrium now. Any suggestions on burping the system to assure that I dont have air bubbles now?

Previous owner used something purple (engine ice?) and a lot of it. Probably not the right mixture, that might have been causing it to run hot. I was in some technical twisties in 2nd/3rd gear all day. At times it would run at 190 and other times 245.. So I dunno.

Sorry for the name confusion. I have two (long story) and was posting from different comps.

Re: (jbowers24)

You fill on the right rad (throttle side) remove screws that hold the upper and right fairing pull plastic back you will find a rad cap.

Re: (twotone)

After you find the radiator cap fill the system best you can then take a rubber mallet and tap (not beat) the hoses, rads (not the fins) water pump, then run the bike with the cap off for a few minutes, level should drop some then tap up, I was advised to run the bike until the thermostat kicked in (you'll know when the fluid starts to swirl like a whirl pool) then shut her down and tap up, I did the step however, the level did not drop, while your in there tighten all hose clamps, try a search also, someone posted about a year back the whole procedure with pics.

Re: (RC Cola)

Thread Hijack:

I am thinking that my fans are not working either. Isn't there a fuse under the left side fairing? I have never heard any fans ever running on my bike in the past year since I owned it but I have never had any over heating problems unless I go through some stoplights. So would someone confirm the location for the fan's fuse?
