Just got my bike back from getting serviced. They did a coolant replacement and some other stuff. Anyway looking though the service manual it says when at operating temps coolant level should be between the upper and lower level. After riding for a little bit I checked the level at 180 - 220 degrees the level is a little above the high line. Is it okay or some of the coolant needs to be removed?

Can I just sipheon it out from the overflow? Does it matter if you do it hot or cold? I assume not hot so it doesnt suck air back in?

Did you look at the bike with it being leveled and on a flat surface or was it leaned over
being on the kick stand ?

Checked it while on the side stand. Previous to getting it done, at the same temps the level was just below the high line and checked on the side stand.

So the level should be checked with the bike centered?

The bike should always be checked when standing upright, the coolant is barley over the lines so your fine.

in order to check the coolant, stand the bike up straight off of its kick stand. as previous stated, it doesn't make a difference if it's a little over, it's just the coolant reservoir.

Over filling the coolant doesn't matter, even if you fill it right to the top the excess will just come out the overflow.
