Coolant engine -big concern-
I am writing to ask for advices that help me to solve the issue i have filling in the system with coolant liquid.
Yesterday, i had to dismount the radiator in order to reach the coils and have installed the quickshifter CPU's harness properly.
Once i finished the installation, and re assembled all the things in, i tried to fill in the system with coolant liquid trough the reservoir tank but the system just allowed to fill in the half of what bleeded before. Naturally,there is air within the system, so i started the engine, without the reservoir cap on, to make it run the liquid through the system and get the air out, but nothing happened. I opted for to close the reservoir cap, and go out to make the fluis run. Few minutes later, engine temperature raised up dramatically (i did not allow to get to hot stopping the engine to get cold). This morning i removed the reservoir cap to fill in the system, but it seem to be full (which is not).
I have read that the only and right path is to use a vaccum bleed pump to get out all the air bubbles. The thing is i have no that pump at this moment and now i have my bike waiting for the coolant :mecry: .
There is an alternate method to bleed the system out and fill in it without air bubbles inside?.
It will not work to loosen the bypass circuit bleed plug and run the engine to allow air bubbles get out?
Suggestions are welcome.
