How to change antifreeze on the PC800
Written by fatdaddyw1 on 7/21/2010 at 09:08 am

the water pump is located behind the kickstand,the lower rear bolt is a drain. I
heard from Mac the best way to refill is to add a quart of antifreeze then start
the bike, then add the rest. Best of luck

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?
