Well, I put the Evans NPG+ in. I was seriously considering the creeper suggestion of flipping the bike up side down to drain the coolant but that would have entailed sacraficing some mirrors as kick stands to hold the bike up so the fairing wouldn't scrape. If I had some old mirrors handy I would have tried it.

I ended up just pulling the hoses and then refilling with evans for a flush cycle and then draining again. I figure if there is any risidual moisture I can just boil it off the next time I'm in traffic since the stock boil point is 225F-250F and the Evans is 375F! According to the manual there is only about 1 Liter in the system and I think I got most of it out by pulling the hose between the radiators and the hose that goes to the Cylinder head and then running a flush cycle.
It will be nice to be able to just chuckle when the boil light comes on.
Speaking of LOW PRESURE CAPS, does anyone know where I can find one of these LOW PRESSURE RADIATOR CAPS?? Are there any other items I myst consider when running a low pressure system?
