At the time of manufacture, the cooling system is filled with a 50 :50 mixture of distilled water and ethylene glycol anti-freeze . This 50:50 mixture will provide the optimum corrosion protection and excellent heat protection, and will protect the cooling system from freezing at temperatures above -31 °C (-24 °F) . If the motorcycle is to be exposed to temperatures below -31 °C (-24 °F), this mixing ratio should be increased up to 55 % or 60 % according to the figure. CAUTION • Use a high quality ethylene glycol base anti-freeze, mixed with distilled water . Do not mix an alcohol base anti-freeze and different brands of anti-freeze. • Do not rut in more than 60%anti-freeze or less than 50 %. (Refer to the right figure.) • * Do not use a radiator anti-leak additive.

(=6-6) • * Remove the radiator cap ® . • * Connect the tester 02 to the filler. A WARNING Do not remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot. • * Give a pressure of about 110 kPa (1.1 kgf/cm 2, 15 .6 psi) and see if the system holds this pressure for 10 seconds. • * If the pressure should fall during this 10-second interval, it means that there is a leaking point in the system. In such a case, inspect the entire system and replace the leaking component or part. A WARNING When removing the radiator cap tester, put a rag on the filler to prevent spouting of engine coolant. CAUTION Do not allow the pressure to exceed the radiator cap release pressure, or the radiator can be damaged

1. Use only unleaded gasoline of at least 87 pump octane by the F method or 91 octane or higher rated by the Research method. alcohol fuel may contain up to 5% methanol if appropriate cosolvents and corrosion inhibitors are present in it. 5. If the performance of the vehicle is unsatisfactory while using blended gasoline/alcohol fuel, you should switch to alcohol-free unleaded gasoline. 6. Failure to follow these guideline could possibly void applicable warranty coverage. Check with your fuel supplier to make sure that the fuel you intend to use meets the requirements listed above COOLANT Use an anti-freeze/coolant compatible with an aluminum radiator, mixed with distrilled water only. WATER FOR MIXING Use distrilled water only. Water other than distrilled water can corrode and clog the aluminum radiator. ANTI-FREEZE/COOLANT The coolant perform as a corrosion and rust inhabit as well as anti-freeze. Therefore, the coolant should be used at all times even though the atomospheric temperature in your area does not go down to freezing point. Suzuki recommends the use of SUZUKI GOLDEN CRUISER 1200NA anti-freeze/coolant. If this is not available, use an equivalent which is compatible with an aluminum radiator
