Does anyone know how to take off the coolant resvoir underneath the back fender, and what to do with the nipple on the side of the radiator next to the cap, do you put a stopper there or what. Thanks for your help
You can take the overflow bottle off, but still need to route the hose coming off the radiator to a low point. Routing it down to the same point as the carb vents is clean and won't let radiator fluid get all over your bike.
Radiator fluid needs to be able to escape, DO NOT plug the drain nipple coming off the radiator.

I have a question about your post, i did take it off once before but all of this coolant just kept dripping out of my overflow hose from the top of the radiator. Is it supposed to do that?
Your radiator may have too much coolant in it, also check the condition of your radiator cap.
