Hey gang,


I sucked up a rock about 20 minutes into my Sunday ride last weekend, resulting in a drip of coolant on bottom of the right, fill side radiator. 


I still ran the bike for the rest of the day, and it ran fine, but, its time to fix it. I have ordered up a used radiator on ebay which should be showing up on Friday. 


Any tips for draining, replacing and refilling the radiators? I have never done this on a dirt bike before. 


Thank you!
