Radiator Flush?

I hate to ask this but... I've never done a radiator flush on a bike. I'm currently doing one on my 03 636. I've got both fairings off now do I pull the hose off the water pump?

there is a drain bolt at the bottom of the water pump. check your manual for the details, it's in the file vault

Wish I had one... Waiting on it to get here. I saw a bolt on top of the water neck but not seeing anything on the bottom.

top right corner of your screen it says File Vault, click it, download the manual for your bike, save $35.

instead of disturbing the seal on the upper radiator hose, just open the cap. Beware though, the stuff dribbles out real slow until you open the cap, but as soon as you do it shoots like three feet out from the side of the bike. I hozed down my neighbors el camino pretty good the first time I did it, had the bike parked in its usual place between the her car and my truck.

Setp one: Obtain 5-8 squares of clean, dry toilet paper.
Setp two: some prefer to neatly fold while others prefer the "wad" technique, but you need to condense the squares into a thicker unit of TP.

...do I really need to continue?

El camino's are overrated! My Boss had one that ran in the 8's. Only one I ever liked but thats because of the blower hanging out of the hood and all the goodies that went with it!

everyone has got cars that they love and hate, i just happen to love el camino's. i don't know what it is about them that i love so much, maybe because they were just such a raddical concept. a car with a pickup bed AND it was done on purpose... you crazy bastards, I LOVE IT.
