Is it possible to fll coolant without taking the fairing off?

Do you always take the right fairing off to reach the reserve coolant tank or use some sort of a funnel with flexible neck?

Its possible to un-cap the reservoir to fill the coolant without removing the flaring. Just slide you hands to free the cap and use flexible hose to fill.

Used something like this.

Use distilled water as 50/50 mix with the coolant.
Tap water will leave dirt in the bike cooling water system.
To check for the level, a torchlight close to the reserve coolant tank would do beside the colour of the coolant.

I just could feel it in my bones something was coming.
As long I don't drink that green stuff, I wouldn't turn green into the HULK.

Could not help myself, thats what happens when you work all night, you get in to mischief to not get bored. As long s you don't feed the green stuff to the kids and then have a house full of hulks and your wife would not be happy.

Important:

1. Check coolant level when engine is cold.
2. V is straight and upright for correct level.
3. Coolant color tells condition of coolant properties.
