Draining and replenishing radiator

Post by mbellino » Wed Jun 05, 2013 1:42 pm

Basic question but I don't see the answer in the owners' manual. How do I check, drain, and replace the water in my '88 GL1500? The picture for checking fluid in the owners' manual is very poor.

Sorry for the basic quesion, but I'm a new GL owner.

Have a look at How to remove and replace your timing belts. Steps 1 through 24 are draining the coolant, steps 129 through 148 are refilling the coolant.

If you just want to check it, have a look at How to check your coolant
