Just a suggestion since you may end up pulling bodywork off the bike to change
the coolant.

Take a moment to pull the thermostat and check its operation by putting it in a
pan on the stove to verify it opens as it should.

Extended Life pre-mixed 50/50. What I need help on is where to drain the fluid.
There is a hose at the left side bottom of the radiator that looks like a good
candidate since it seems to be the lowest point on the cycle where antifreeze
circulates. Anybody want to confirm?
