-Install the drain plugs. Always replace the 0 ring and
gasket with new ones,
if
they are damaged. Tightening
torque for the radiator drain plug is 0.4 kg-m (35 in-Ibs),
and the cylinder drain plug
2.0
kg-m (14.5 ft-Ibs).
-Fill
the
radiator up to the radiator filler neck with
coolant, and
install
the cap turning
it
clockwise by
about
~
turn.
NOTES: 1.
Do not pour the coolant rapidly so that it
can expel the air from the engine and radiator.
2. The radiator cap must be
installed
at two steps. First
turn the cap clockwise to the first stop. Then turn
it further to same direction pushing the cap.
-Fill the reserve tank up to the
" FULL"
mark with
coolant,
and install the cap.
Total refill will take
about 3.5 liters after
the
air inside the system is ex-
pelled.
-Before putting the motorcycle into operation, any air
trapped in the cooling system must be removed as
follows.

may boil and overflow from the reserve tank before
the gauge reading indicates the
"W
line. When the
coolant level of the reserve tank starts to rise rapid-
Iy, stop the engine at once Ind cool it
to
kHp the
coolant from overflowing.

expelled.
-Stop the engine by turning the ignition switch off, and
install the lOA fuse in the fuse box.
-Start the engine again, and run the engine until the
coolant temperature is normal.
NOTE: Check coolant level in the reserve tank several
times while the engine is cooling down, and replenish
as necessary.
If the coolant in the reserve tank runs
completely out any time during cooling, the air bleeding
operation must be repeated from the beginning, since
air will have entered the system.
-Stop the engine, and check the coolant level after the
engine cools down. Add coolant up to the "FULL"
mark.
-Inspect the drain plugs and the radiator cap for leaks.
