I used 2-3 two gallon distilled water jugs to completely flush the coolant out.
Should be good for two drains and a final fill.

You shouldn't even worry about the cooling system capacity, distilled water is cheap.

Till it's filled appropriately with the res near the top line... :O

I had no issue buying a standard jug of 50/50 mix, and had some left. As for flushing... Distilled water is like $0.99/gallon and... I'll drink any that doesn't go into the bike, so I think I got 5 gallons last time drank one while doing the procedure and flushed it "quite well".

When I did water wetter one bottle did the trick.

I'm not really precise about it, because some comes out during the burping process.

I believe it holds just under 3 quarts total

So if you buy distilled and coolant- mixed together it should take about 3 quarts....but as said above--fill it til it is full and make sure the recovery tank is appropriately filled as well
