Do you really need to replace the bolt like it says in the service manual pics listed above?

also, to those expecting massive drops, they arnt going to happen, any thing below, i belive 180 on the 06's for example, has the tstat closes, wich means coolant flow is all but stoped, asside from the small amount designed to flow by, so 170 - 175 is indeed really cooled down from that standpoint, the real measurement, which our bikes do not measure, is the actual surface temp of the head / cylinder jackets, thats where the "big drops" should be noticed.

Torque specs

Can anybody share the torque spec for the drain bolt? I have an 07 600rr.

And can I use Prestone Extended Life Antifreeze/Coolant? It says that it's safe for aluminum. Anybody used this on their bikes? My bike is purely for the road. No track days for me yet.

Thanks!

so i am in the process of flushing my own coolant per this write up. one thing i noticed was some coolant (well dried collant that came out) crusted around the bolt by the water pump. is this normal? anyone else notice anything of the same?

My drain bolt is fairly clean. Maybe some crusted crud from the chain, but no dried coolant.

I think there's a crush washer behind the bolt. Maybe you need a new one.

Hello.
On the first post its written:

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


what does he mean with clear distilled coming out ?
so should i add and remove coolant water for several times? why is that needed ?

did i understand it wrong ?

in steps 6-12, you're using distilled water to flush out the coolant system. You're not adding new coolant into the system just yet. Once you've ensured that there's no more residual coolant in the system, then you can add in new coolant (step 15).

ok now it is clear. but two questions rise

1. why to do that ? once i remove the drain bolt everything will flow out anyway, or not ?

2. when filling the radiotor with coolant in the end. do i have to fill it till the top ?

3. last question is , why not to put more coolant in the reservoir (instead of lower marking as you said ) ?

I'll answer your number one.

no, you probably won't get rid of the old coolant completely with just a simple flush. if you need to clean your system from the coolant to use the bike on the track, then you should flush it at least one more time. (or if you want to use WW or something non ETHYL GLYCOL BASED, you would want to get rid of the ethyl glycol based stuff that was there before.)

if you're gonna add the same coolant again, i guess you could care less.

if i wasn't riding the bike on the track, i wouldn't bother...

Thanks again, Impostor!!!

1. No, not everything will flow out. There are some still inside the water pump. When the bike is running, at a certain temp 180F?, the thermostat will open and the residual coolant inside the pump will mix in with the rest of the distilled water. Hence if you're replacing coolant with something else, you'd want to do steps 6-12 a couple of times to get everything out.

2. When I'm burping the system, I fill it to the top of the radiator fill cap bc the system will suck in the coolant. After burping, if I still need more, I fill it to the inner lip bc anything more will spill out when you put your radiator cap on.


3. You fill to the lower mark (cold bike) bc as the bike is running and is hot, there will be some overflow into this reservoir and it'll be at the high mark (hot bike). I'm not sure what would happen if you fill it to the top mark when the bike is cold... I imagine it'll blow the lid off and steam will come out.

Btw, good luck Tiger!

The total volume that the coolant system holds is 3.15 liters (listed in the service manual), correct? The reason I ask is I flushed my system, drained both pump and block, but only have been only able to sneak in about 2 liters into the system. Even after running the engine up to Op. temp of about 205 for a few minutes and blipping the throttle.

I was having the same problem, if you look where the inlet and outlet are on the radiator you will notice that they are not flush at the bottom, I tried to put a blow gun in the fill hole where the radiator cap is and blow most of the coolant and water out but i couldnt get it all, it would just gurgle

Some advice for anyone doing the coolant drain/flush/refill of the cooling system. No matter how well you allow everything to drain, there will still be some amount of coolant in the bottom of the radiator of the bike. If you notice, the lower coolant line comes into the radiator about 4 inches or so from the bottom. The horizontal tube are still full of coolant. You can spend a lot of time flushing the radiator and cooling system out because of this coolant that is in the bottom of the radiator. Simple answer is.........while you are flushing the coolant system out, remove the radiator from the bike and turn it up-side-down and drain the radiator completely. Us a hose or ?? and flush the radiator out while it is off of the bike. Re-install the radiator and hook the two hoses back up and continue with your flushing/filling procedure.
