same procedures. check your owners manual for detailed/model specific instructions. And iirc, it's R6v...

Re: How To: Coolant Flush w/ Pics

Im pretty sure the manual actually says to flush with tap water. So I dont think using distilled water is completely necessary, but it doesnt hurt. I think where you have to watch out with the tap water is if you use it in your coolant mix that you fill the bike with. But for just flushing it, tap water is fine.

Re: How To: Coolant Flush w/ Pics

How many bottles did you need? What's the radiator's capacity?

Re: How To: Coolant Flush w/ Pics

Just over 1 bottle of engine ice. I personally use a garden hose to flush the system out once it has been drained. While the engine is running to get all the coolant out of the lowest point. For shits and giggles, you can also take compressed air at about 20 PSI if you can seal it around the radiator cap and get a lot more of the old fluid out or even tip the bike towards the right side...
