Looking for help on flushing the radiator.

Does anyone have a "how to" or "step by step" (stupid simple or flushing radiators for dummies) to flush the radiator on our bikes. Please let me know. Thanks

Its all in there in this section....check the sticky posts........I use a 50/50 vinegar mix, then flush with a light baking soda slurry....then flush 2x more....thats old school though....works.....

There is a drain on the front of the radiator, right side (footbrake side)....warm the bike up some (not too much), and remove that plug...then at same time remove the radiator cap....

Remember to use only distilled water if adding to straight antifreeze....plain water will corode the aluminum (OK to flush with it).....ooooorrrrrrrr...remove the radiator, and bring to a radiator shop....they are set up to clean aluminum radiators....
