Re: Cooling system top-up (A bit long, sorry)
I filled the K100, K1100, now K1200 same way as the car - fill 2/3 tp 3/4, start engine, let idle, continue to add then when starting to get warm shut off, fill rad to top, put cap on, make sure there is coolant in overflow, start, run till fan comes on - overflow should rise a bit, drive - never have .had a problem with cooling - if you get to top of rad while warming up may burp and spill some coolant.
