Fluid Level + Sprocket Kit Question - September 6, 2007, 07:38 AM

This may be a dumb as hell question buttttt.....

I changed oil and coolant yesterday. Oil wise all went well. With the coolant all seemed to go well but I did not see anything in the coolant reservoir after putting in the coolant. Should I be concerned? I ask because when I drained it there was coolant in the coolant reservoir. It rode fine this morning and actually ran cooler (Engine Ice is the stuff) but I wanted to double check to make sure I did not screw myself or my bike.

Okay, feel free to throw out the "what an idiot" looks.

As for the Sprocket Kit.....any recommendations. I have a 2000 GSXR 600 SRAD and just got a new wheel put on. The mechanic mentioned I should probably get the chain and sprokets changed in the not to distant future. I think I will take this one to someone that knows what they are doing rather than tackle it myself. Still, can't hurt to see if I can find a good price on the Sprockets and Chain.

There should be coolant in the reservoir. Was there any in there after the ride?

Okay, now I am concerned. The reservoir is still empty. I take it I will have to run by Colemans and pick up some more Engine Ice.

you should have to pour fluid into the reservoir as well...if you didn't thats probably why. also did you follow the recommended air bleeding procedure for your bike?

As for the chain and sprocket call up Sree at Moto Neko. Berry good prices.

Gearing, unless there is a need for a change Id keep stock gearing, and steel sprockets last significatnly longer.

Other wise go to the 520 chain and keep with in a few teeth of stock (no more than -1 up front, OR +2 in the rear) and if you decide to change the gearing be ready for the bike to get worse gas milage and be more buzzy on the highway.

Cool, I will just keep it stock. No need to screw with things any more than I need to at this point.

When the bike is cool, make sure the radiator is full as well.

Here are a few websites with more info:

Seems like I got the Radiator full part right. I will double check it to make sure though.
