HEADS UP:

Heads up to anyone doing this.

TAKE YOUR TIME on the drain bolt (shifter side)

the aluminum threads are crappy and i accidentally stripped the hole out.

now either i need a new water pump or i need a tap and die job.

torque is 9 ft-lbs for both drain bolts BUT... honda says in the manual to just tighten the cylinder drain bolt pretty tight because you cant get a torque wrench in there.

also no one has mentioned this. as with all crush washers (oil drain bolt, all brake line bolts, coolant flush bolts) they need to be replaced everytime the bolt is removed. i know this usually doesnt happen, but i'll pay an extra buck or two to do what honda recommends.

just did engine ice this weekend. but i may have to redo it (sucks i know)

temp is the same when running and even gets a bit hotter when i'm sitting in traffic. i'm gonna have to drain the radiator. no freezing in florida. so i may go the watter wetter route.

you would only be able to fill it with the full capacity if the engine was disassembled. flushing it out only gets the old coolant out. the water still sits in the bottom of the radiator and in cooling pockets around the engine. i fit a little more than 2 quarts in there.

I earnestly appreciate your reply... and I believe you but everyone seems to insist that there's actually more to it.

That you can actually get it all out and replace it all during this flush process....

http://www.600rr.net/vb/showthread.p...49#post3542549

So I have been trying and trying to get her to bubble up some more air pockets and get more coolant in. It's hard to tell if shes running hotter as if I'm missing some coolant since its been abnormally hot here the past few weeks. stoplight 225 versus what I'm used to seeing 220...


Yours is the FIRST post to give me a 2 quart reference versus 3.5 to 3.75 almost four quart reference.
Even the manual says "'07's cooling system uses 3.65 qts including reserve tank" but honestly I'm grabbing that from the forum I haven opened my PDF or hardcopy to confirm that ---- I guess I will this evening...

Thanks man really appreciate the slap of reality I was worried thinking I was missing a quart of coolant

I did the coolant flush today. I used prestone long life without silicates and a few other things but don't remember. I zip tied a funnel to the coolant hose to stop the splatter when draining the coolant. I didn't have a big drip pan so this worked well.

Thanks for the excellent post! Does anyone know if the process differs on an 09? I plan on doing this soon.
Lastly, when changing my air filter I took the rad cap off to look at my coolant and noticed a bunch of tiny metallic looking particles which seemed top disappear when rubbed between my fingers. Is this normal for factory coolant? :confused:

^No its not different.

Are you guys mixing WW with coolant or just running straight WW?

PM me if you have a red clip for an Arai side pod.

if your area gets below 0 degrees then yes it will freeze. But Cali never gets that cold, so i am safe.

Hope this helps the 07 owners and please let me know if there are mistakes in these directions.

1. Take off the bottom fairing.

2. Take off right side mid and upper fairing to expose the radiator cap.


3. Undo the 10mm bolt, pop the lid and dump the coolant out of the reserve bottle.


4. The water pump is on the left side near the gear lever. Look for the shiny aluminum pipe.


5. The water pump drain bolt (10mm) is near where the aluminum pipe goes into the water pump.


6. Before doing the next steps, exercise caution if the bike is still hot. You can get burned by the steam and/or hot coolant, so best if you wait until bike has cooled off.

7. Undo the drain bolt. Some coolant will drip out. Place a pan under there before proceeding.

8. Remove the radiator cap. When you remove the radiator cap, coolant will pour out of the drain bolt at the bottom. Wait until it stops draining.

9. Replace and tighten the drain bolt.

10. At the radiator cap opening, fill system with distilled water. Close radiator cap.

11. Run the bike to operating temp so the water pump circulates the distilled water.

12. Turn off bike and wait for it to cool.

13. Repeat steps 6-12 a couple times until whats coming out is clear distilled water.

14. Once clear, tighten the drain bolt back up for good per torque specs.

15. Then fill system with your favorite coolant or distilled water+Wetter.

16. With radiator cap still off, start the bike and watch the coolant get sucked down into the pump and radiator. Add more coolant to fill it up again. Blip throttle 3-4 times to burp the air out of the system. Add more coolant if needed. Replace and tighten the radiator cap.

17. Fill reserve bottle with coolant to the lower mark.

18. Replace your fairings.

19. Done!
Great guide. Thanks!

nice write up...

did the same thing to my 2007 hornet(600rr 2007 engine) the minute a bought it new,since it was a 2007 stock...

i also modified the thermostat while at it cause the bloody thing boiled in traffic...100-106c and i think your rr's behave the same...

i did 9 2mm holes on the wide side of the stat...(drill it with the rubber sealant on so that you know the point under which you should drill...)

quite a difference...with 20c air temp it goes up to 75c at 100kmp...takes A LOT longer to build up in traffic and the best thing is that when at 100c,if you run it for a couple of hundred meters even at low speeds,drops immediately to 90...

in a 11 km commute with 8-10 relatively long red lights it never started the fan...

used a 50-50 mixture of total organic coolant and distiled water...

just a quick question, starting the bike with the radiator cap off wont have coolant spitting out everywhere? Sorry noob question. Is there some type of line to tell you when to stop filling?

I just did a coolant change on bike tonight. Might want to add "It doesn't come out like oil(A more viscous liquid)". It sprayed out and I could barely get it in my drain pan :P
