Has anyone figured out a way to add coolant to the reserve bottle/tank that sits under the driver's right side front fairing? Seems like some type of flexible funnel might work. I just want to add some to the bottle without taking off the fairing, if possible.

TIA!

Small turkey baster worked for me. Careful - they sometimes drip a little.

Use a funnel made to add automatic transmission fluid to a car. These have a very long neck on them. You can put a piece of heater hose or similar sized tubing on the end. You can stick that down into the reservoir or radiator to fill them up from the handlebar area.

Two long skinny funnels.

It's what I happened to have, and it works fine.

Also, make sure you don't overfill the reservoir. It'll puke the extra out next time you're idling in stop and go traffic, and that's just tacky. DAMHIK.

Just up to the line about 1/3 of the way up is plenty.

I carry one of the really small Gatorade bottles of coolant onboard. Easy to sneak it up from the bottom front and pour a little in. Make sure you write DO NOT DRINK on it.
