Coolant flush

Can you flush the coolant without the bike running? Any suggestions on how to do it and what to use.

Grace to you!

take the upper radiator hose loose from the cooling system, and run a garden hose in through the upper radiator hole, and let it bag flush through the thermostat housing.

where does the water come out. My bike is sitting in a building that has a wooden floor. It can't be taken outside as it is 22" off the ground. We haven't built the ramp yet and it took 4 of us to get it up in the building. So where that water goes is important.

Grace and Peace to you!
