For several months we have been battling this finicky little punk of a video. First the sizing then the co/decs and aspect ratio, and on initial upload to YouTube – – an audio malfunction. Finally we are pleased to announced we’ve worked out the kinks, just to help YOU save money and have fun while doing your repairs on your own Yamaha R1.
So please, check us out on Facebook and YouTube and like, comment, and subscribe if you want us to continue shooting these videos for you!
In this video, we show you the best way to flush your coolant system in a 2004 2005 or 2006 R1. Put another way, this is how you service the radiator and change out old or bad fluids and antifreeze. Since we are in Texas, and the R1 already runs hot, we chose to remove the antifreeze and fill ‘er back up with Distilled water and a little helper product called “Water Wetter.” Careful here, as Distilled water and Water Wetter do not have any antifreeze qualities that we know of. However, you can always refer to your owners manuals (or see our Manuals Page here) to refill your R1 with antifreeze.
