How much coolant does a 2008 hold? What is the proper way to drain it? I took the drain bolt out by the water pump but not much came out. Thanks, bill804

Open the radiator cap as well, about a liter or so should come out pretty rapidly.

Yeah, should come out pretty quick.. As in, I had to hold a bucket about 2ft away from the bike and ended up getting antifreeze all over me the first time I did it, lol

Yeah that happened to me too haha

Are there any coolant drain bolts other than the one on the water pump cover? I can check in a few days but I'm pretty sure i didnt use a whole liter to top it off. I drained it, filled 'er up, ran the bike a few minutes, and only had to put in maybe a few ounces to top it off again. :thumbsup:
