Has anyone change/flush the coolant on their R3 yet? Are there any instructions about it?
Almost all my coolant leak out and I'm debating if I should do it myself or have the dealer do it.

When bike is cool, remove radiator cap and loosen lower water pump bolt (the one with the copper washer). Drain coolant, retighten bolt, refill, recap.

The way I learned was drain coolant, refill with DI water, warm bike up until circulating, cool down, drain DI water, repeat until water is clear, then finally add the new coolant

Quick tip on refilling to avoid air pockets, SAFELY lean the bike to the left (lower radiator hose side) this will help eliminate any potential air pockets from occurring when refilling. Use the help of a buddy if you are concerned you cannot hold the bike at a lean angle yourself.
