    A local dealer quoted $180. I decided to do it myself. Remove three lower fairings to access to radiator cap and overflow bottle. Loosen the lock screw on the radiator cap with a Phillips screwdriver. Loosen but do not remove the radiator cap. Take the plastic cap off the overflow bottle. Locate and remove the drain bolt on the engine to the left of the exhaust manifold. Drain system. Remove the overflow bottle attachment bolt and tip the contents. Remove radiator cap and flush. Replace drain bolt. Fill the system from the top with 50-50 ethylene glycol. This is somewhat difficult due to the tight spaces above the radiator cap. A transfer pump is useful. Harbor Freight $5. Fill up to the neck of the radiator and then fill the overflow bottle to the high mark. Close the cap. Start the motor and let it run for three minutes. Cool down. Open the cap and check the level. Fill if necessary. Check the overflow. Fill if necessary. Tighten the lock screw on the radiator cap.
