Replacement coolant cap
If your motorcycle requires a coolant change, you may be wondering how to go about tackling the job. If so, read on to learn the basics of replacing your motorcycle’s coolant.
Pour the Coolant
After putting a bucket beneath your motorcycle to catch the discarded coolant, use a wrench to carefully take out the coolant drain bolt. Once all the old coolant has been drained into your bucket, use a washcloth to give your drain bolt a thorough cleaning, then reattach it. If your drain bolt is exceptionally filthy, however, you may want to take this opportunity to change it.
Apply New Coolant
Now that the old coolant has been successfully drained, open up the motorcycle’s coolant cap and pour in the amount of coolant specified by your owner’s manual. Use a washcloth to vigorously clean the coolant cap. Once the cap has been cleaned, securely reattach it. As was the case with the drain bolt, you may want to consider changing your motorcycle’s coolant cap if it strikes you as particularly dirty.
