need to fill the radiator after i reinstall it. can i just go to autozone/pepboys and get any engine coolant as long as i mix it 50/50 with water as the manual recommends?

anything else i'm missing on the procedure? or is it as simple as fill and go?

Make sure coolant is compatible with aluminum radiators (most are IIRC). Fill radiator; once full to neck, carefully squeeze the hose that routes from the bottom of the radiator (right side of bike on my 1st gen) to blow out air bubbles, then top off again. Replace cap, and while you have the bottle of coolant open and hands dirty, check the reserve reservior as well and top off if necessary.


Easy cheesy....
