Coolant, how much?

Hey guys, am about to winterized my bikes but I have an essue with how much fluid does the 2 radiators on the RC holds?

I will mix the antifreeze with distille water, just for winterizing, b/c in regular season I do track days and I can't run antifreeze, so I just put water on it....

Thanks for any input!

Love my Honda`s

Depending on the variant, anywhere from 2.6 to 3.1 qts.
Don't forget to burp the cooling system after emptying and filling.
With the bike on the side stand, fill the system, then crank the engine and blip the throttle a few times, then shutdown and check coolant level.
I'd recommend not filling the coolant overflow tank to the upper level.
