Just fill it up, ride it around the back yard a couple laps, let it cool then check it. Fill it to the top and you're done!

Ok thats what i have been doing, i just thought that this bike get so hot so fast that there must have been a lot of air in the coolant. Would engine ice bring that temp down more?
