Versys-X 300 coolant level

A riding friend and I have new 300s. Both our coolant levels - checked and verified via our owners manuals - are extremely low or showing empty tanks. Both bikes run cool but we're wondering about our coolant levels. Ideas, anyone?

If you overfill the overflow tank expect some blowout on the over flow tube behind the engine.

Mine was just below the "full" mark on delivery and has never moved. Be careful though as my mixture is a very light blue and the level is difficult to see through that fairing slit.

The dealer also properly filled the coolant reservoir just below the "full" mark for my motorcycle.

On my 650s there are lines for HI and LO on the side AWAY from where you can view (looking thru the fairing), so I took a black marker and put lines onto the inside where I can see them.

Your nearly better off looking from the top and judging it. Much easier to see the level.

You can easily view the coolant level through the hole in the right fairing. Marking the two lines on the coolant reservoir with a black permanent marker will definitely make the job even easier.
