Checking coolant level
« on: February 16, 2019, 09:36:48 am »
When looking through the fairing to check the coolant level
On a 2011 c14  should the bike be on the center stand? Or sidestand?
Does it matter?
Thoughts?

The owner's manual says to position the bike so it is perpendicular to the ground. If you can do that at the same time as looking at the coolant level then do that. I have to put it on the center stand and put a board under the front tire when I do it without assistance in checking antifreeze level and oil sight glass level.
