Changing the water
on: 15 May, 2021, 05:16:37 PM
I was thinking of doing it on mine and my wife's bikes (MK2 and MK1). Having done my 1300, I was thinking 'how hard can it be'?

Well, too hard. You have to take all the bodywork off just to get to the radiator cap. What drongo came up with that design.

Red MK II with full luggage, MRA screen, hugger, crash bungs, heated grips and Autocom.
CB1300SA with a few bits.

Stop whinging and get on with it, its a leisurely mornings work to complete both and a good opportunity to inspect the fuel lines etc.

Prestone 4L coolant/antifreeze, ready to use, currently half price 7 at Tesco, all makes all models, it states 10 year guarantee on label, has anyone used this or know of any issues. Looking at comparison charts is silicate free and appears to be ok for cbf.
