Bought a new bike and decided to put in fresh fluids.. So I have a question about when I flushed my coolant.
I took out the bottom bolt next to the water pump and took the hose off next to it also and let it flush out for a couple minutes or so. I then filled it back up with distilled water (put back the pieces I took off of course) Lauren's the bike on and let it run until the fan kicked in. After that I let it cool and flushed

Did you undo radiator cap too when flushing ? Did you just use distilled water or coolant too?

The distilled water again. I did this process like 3 times to make shut it was nice an clean. after the 3rd flush I added my coolant until it was full and turned on the bike with the radiator cap off so I could bleed out any air bubbles trapped inside. After I put the cap on I filled up the resivor to the high dash (theirs a high an low dash) and when I turned on my bike and let it sit for a bit I noticed it throwing it out of the overflow hose.. Is this normal??

Yes I took of the radiator cap off so it could allow air to flush it out.. And I only used distilled water to flush it. I put my coolant in after the 3rd flush.. Sorry I didn't finish the rest of the first message.. Wouldn't let me write anymore

Lol no worries ,fill it from the rad until you see fluid in the header that way you push air up rather than down !
