How to Change Coolant in a Motorcycle

Things You'll Need

  • Motorcycle antifreeze Standard tool kit


  • Place a bucket or pan under the motorcycle to catch the used coolant.

  • Remove the coolant drain bolt from the underneath of the motorcycle. Allow the coolant to drain out completely. This shouldn't take long.

  • Use a clean rag to remove any debris or contaminants from the coolant drain bolt.

  • Replace the drain bolt.

  • Open the coolant cap (usually located just under the front fairing of the motorcycle).

  • Pour in the amount of motorcycle antifreeze suggested in your motorcycle's owner's manual.

  • Replace the coolant cap. To seal it tightly, make sure the cap is twisted completely.

  • Keep used coolant away from animals, as it is fatal to them.
