adding coolant fluid.

there must be an easier way to add coolant after removing seat. remove side panels, remove two more sets of bolts and screws and lift tank first? really? i know suzuki designers are smart enough to be able to come up with a much easier design for this.

Many bikes are difficult in this regard, I don't really find these bikes much worse if any. I use a funnel with a long flexible hose on it, I put the coolant where I want it.

I lifted the rear of the tank up as far as it would go and used a turkey baster, still was a pain.

Was '14 when the reservoir bottle was moved from inside the R fairing to the Twilight Zone?
