coolant first?

I haven't gotten my bike running yet but was wondering if I get it running how long can I run it on a non flushed water system that may be low on water. The little black container looks like it has gel in it.

Maybe I should do a coolant flush before that junk goes through my bike. Any suggestions?

Grace and Peace to you!

IMO, flush it. You don't want anything semi-solid trying to pass through the radiator (and other parts of the engine) and possibly cause a blockage.

I only understand what I don't understand.
