1. With the bike on the side stand, crank the engine and run for 2 to 3 minutes.
2. Blip the throttle 3 or 4 times to bleed air from the system.
3. Stop the engine, remove radiator cap and add coolant via the filler neck.
4. Install radiator cap.
5. With the bike upright and level, check the reserve tank and ensure it's at the upper level mark.
