Coolant check and add query

Post by alwrmcusn »



On my 2008 GL1800 the coolant level check dip stick is behind the left side panel. I read that the radiator cap is beneath the right (keyed) fairing pocket.
Can I add coolant via the check coolant level spout or must I remove the fair pocket and add it there?
When I checked the coolant level (bike is cold, not started) the dip stick is not registering anything, it is dry. The last ride I did the temp gauge was registering normal temperature just a hair under the halfway mark on the gauge.

Nevermind, I found the info I needed. Just a matter of my terminology matching the other guys terminology. :D
