How to change antifreeze on the PC800
Written by pwhite422000 on 7/21/2010 at 12:46 pm

I believe it is recommended that the washer be changed when draining the
anti-freeze. I got a new washer from Bike Bandit along with other parts when
changing mine. I put in Engine Ice and drove through some very hot weather last
month during a ride to Georgia and back.

into a small bucket. You may want to remove the cover above the foot peg to
help you find the water pump if you don't know where it is. When looking at the
bottom of the bike there are a couple of overflow hoses that end right about at
the water pump drain bolt.

I siphoned mine.
