\ From the radiator, through the case and out
the exhaust. If it has to do with the cooling,
engine or exhaust, discuss it here!

Use 50/50 mix antifreeze that says on the container" Formulated for aluminum engines " or states it is for aluminum engines ( SuperTech- Walmart). Take off the right cover just in front of the gas tank, 2 screws. Undo cap, open bleeder screw nut ( on top behind the filler neck. Pour slowly until antifreeze comes out the bleeder screw and the radiator is full. Fill the reservoir tank about 3/4 full.

I would suggest that you do a complete flushing of the system before you put clean antifreeze into a dirty system. Use the search feature and you should find all the information you need to do it even if you have no experience.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.
