Change Engine Coolant

Hey Guys

Last year I went little too deep and got my quad pretty wet, Inside the engine .


I got all the water out of the engine with a few oil changes but I noticed that my coolant overflow bottle has a nice brown liquid in it. Needless to say I am pretty sure i know where it came from. What I am wondering is what is the best way to change the coolant? Without a rad re-locate. Will I need to flush it with anything? Will I need to remove the front plastics again? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards

Me

Radiator relocate is the best mod I have done every thing is so accessable for cleaning especially since it stays cleaner to begin with, cuts down on a lot of problems.

You dont have to remove plastics OR drill holes, never drill holes.. I dunno why people suggest that...

All you need is a siphon hose, the kind w/ a "prime bulb" in it. Works great.

I drained mine by pulling the hose loose on the bottom left-hand side.
