Just wondering about how much coolant a 07 zx6r will take after it has been flushed a few time with distilled water of course? any hints you could provide about it? Thanks

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

Should say in the service manual I would think which is on this forum under the service manuals section. Not sure anybody is gunna know that off hand.
For future reference (for Googlers like myself), service manual states total coolant capacity is 2.6 L (2.7 US qt).
