How to change antifreeze on the PC800
Written by goldwingman40 on 7/21/2010 at 04:30 am

I always pull that hose off the fitting on the front of the water pump to drain
it, it is fast without pulling any plastic. Just be carefull when loosening on
the waterpump .
I use nothing but Honda antifreeze, the cost is only slightly higher than what
you get at discount auto parts stores. That way you are safe. You can get
concentrated at the Honda car dealer and mix with distilled water if your bike
dealer doesn't have it.

change your antifreeze. I figure they are crazy. At the hourly rate they
charge these days it might cost you $100 USD to change your antifreeze.

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?
