Coolant

Coolant Filling

Use coolant containing corrosion inhibitors made
specifically for aluminum engines and radiators in
accordance with the instruction of the manufac-
ture's. Soft or distilled water must be used with the
antifreeze (see below for antifreeze) in the cooling
system.
If hard water is used in the system, it
causes scale accumulation in the water passages,
and considerably reduces the efficiency of the
cooling system.
Recommended Coolant

Mixed ratio:
Freezing point:
Total amount
Replace the gasket with a new one.
Tighten:
Torque - Coolant Drain Bolt: 6.9 N·m (0.70 kgf·m, 61 in·lb)
Fill the radiator up to the bottom of the radiator filler neck
[B] with coolant [A], and install the cap, turning it clockwise
about 1/4 turn.
Lean the motorcycle slightly to the right until the radiator
filler neck is level to the ground so that the filler neck is lo-
cated uppermost in order to exhaust the air accumulated
in the radiator.
Pour in the coolant slowly so that it can expel the air
from the engine and radiator. The radiator cap must be
installed in two steps. First turn the cap clockwise to the
first stop. Then push down on it and turn it the rest of
the way.
Check the cooling system for leaks.

Air Bleeding

Start the engine, warm up the engine thoroughly, and then
stop the engine. Wait until the engine cools down.
Remove the radiator cap.
Check the coolant level (see Coolant Level Inspection in
the Periodic Maintenance chapter).
If the coolant level is low, add coolant up to the bottom of
the filler neck.
Install the radiator cap.
Check the cooling system for leaks.
NOTICE
Permanent type antifreeze (soft water
and ethylene glycol plus corrosion
and rust inhibitor chemicals for
aluminum engines and radiators)
