Radiator Fluid Question

Ok fellas, last night I added an IMS tank and the Devol radiator guards. What a pain in the a$$ to put that tank on, I think I'm going to have to remove it again and add spacers and longer bolts. There was about half an inch, roughly, between that tank mounts and the bike mount where the tank bolts on. Had to push the tank in on both sides to make the bolts reach. Not sure if that will produce too much stress on the tank. I had to remove one of the radiator hoses which caused about half a can of budweiser's worth of fluid to squirt out (I was at eye level, and I can tell you, radiator fluid, at least the green stuff, does not taste good), to ensure I don't hurt the engine, will it be as easy as just taking the radiator cap off and topping it off, or do I need to bleed anything?

Re: Radiator Fluid Question

Much like a car, top it off, run it to circulate out any air pockets, top it off again, repeat until you are satified it is full.

And I must agree, through no design of want, I too have tasted antifreeze, and it is pretty nasty stuff.

Re: Radiator Fluid Question

Has anyone used that "Water Wetter" additive? (I think thats what it's called) The stuff that supposed to reduce the temperature of your coolant. It's $15.95 for the little bottle here.
