Right side of the bike, below the side cover is the overflow tank. It should have a black cover with a view window and high and low markings.

No, it should have something in there....if you can't see the level ,open the cap and just look in..(flashlight helps)

Make sure you use a 50/50 mix of distilled water and coolant that is approved for aluminum engines/radiators...(will say this on the label somewhere) Do not fill the overflowtank when the bike is cold.

What?, Do they make tanks with 'high' and 'low' markings in Illinois, that are actually supposed to be empty?

No offense, it's just my personality flaw, but I've got to stop reading these threads titled with some variation of 'Noob question',... Are you new to liquid-cooled engines, or just Life in general?
