Need Help. Water Wetter

OK so my first track day is comming up in a couple of weeks and I wanted to flush my coolant this weekend and put in water wetter. Only problem is that I've never done this before and I don't have a service manual...they are on B.O. until 10-31-06. So if anyone has a manual that is in the SF. Bay Area I would appreciate it if I could borrow the manual. Hell I'll even do all the work right in front of you if you don't trust me to walk away with it and bring it back.

I know what I need to do because I've actually used the search feature, however it doesn't look like anyone posted pics of where things are located. I havn't worked on my bike at all, the manual would save me a lot of time.

Thanks in advance


Edit: err...I meant to put this in the Maitanance section...my bad.
Edit 2: Thanks Moeman for moving it to the proper section

1. Drain old coolant, drain & clean reservoir.
2. Flush with 2 gal of distilled water.
3. Replace water pump drain bolt. Fill w/ distilled water.
3. Run bike up to temp (190-200F). Turn off, let cool.
4. Drain. Flush w/ .5 gallon of distilled water.
5. Repeat steps 3-4.
6. Tilt bike left to right to get as much water as I can out.
7. Replace drain bolt.
8. Fill with new coolant (I used Engine Ice)
9. Turn bike on, idle for 3 min. Rev the bike 4-6 times. Top off coolant.
10. Fill reservoir, put bike back together.

I'll have to go stare at my bike at lunch to figure out that picture....Front Right Fender area maybe?

When I actually do this I'll take pics and post up a how to for everyone...seems like a lot of people ask about it.

Water pump is at Left side of the bike right before the left side rear sets

quick question....am I going to need to remove my plastics to do this?

Again...havn't done this before
you need to take off the right side ram air cover
so you can have easy access to the radiator
mouth and may be the left side middle fairing
to get to the water pump

I should not have posted that question because I figured that out quickly that I needed to do that

Here is an Honest question....whats the difference between bottled water and Distilled water?

Or is say...crystal gyser and arrowhead distilled?

That would be your tool pouch, unless you have bike that has been stollen and a key that was made up you should be able to unlock that box

Ok...just take a flathead screwdriver and jam it home then turn.

I guess you could put a few SMALL tools in there or even use it to smuggle some drugs.

Oooo... a Derringer could probably fit in there too.
