Over filled coolant reservoir etc help!!
Ok here's the situation. I wanted to do a coolant flush/change on my 11 zx6r. My issue was that I didn't know how how remove the upper right fairing with out removing the front fairing. Iam crunched on time here with work so decide to drain everything I could from the bottom drain bolt. Which now leads just a little bit in the reservoir. I decide the new coolant will "overtake" the old few ounces.(which it did in my opinion based on the color change-put engine ice in.) my issue is that I wasn't thinking and just about topped off the reservoir.(not the full line but topped off)
Now I need to fill the neck which is damn near impossible to reach with a flexible funnel!!. Now the neck isn't quite topped off yet from what i can feel with my finger but the reservoir is full, like the actual container is from earlier. I ran it till the fan turned on hopeing the bike would suck in what it needed from the reservoir but never did. I'm gonna take the cap off soon to see if it burps the system and lowers the reservoir? Any ideas on what needs to be done besides do it the right way next time??
