Use only non silica formula anti freeze like OEM Honda or GM Dexcool , the scrubbing particles in automotive antifreeze can damage the ceramic seal in you motorcycle water pump. To change the antifreeze, find the low point of the system. Some cycles have a drain on the bottom of the radiator. Most have a small drain bolt located on the water pump housing cover. Place a pan under the drain bolt, loosen the radiator cap (this will allow the anti freeze to flow faster), and remove the drain bolt. Replace the drain bolt. To top up or fill the system, first, fill the radiator to the top. Replace the radiator cap, then locate the over flow tank and fill it to the full mark. After short drive and a cool down period , recheck the level in the over flow bottle and top up the radiator and over flow bottle as needed.

How do you check coolant in a 2003 750 Shadow Spirit?


With the engine cold , take off the radiator cap and if necessary top it off. Use only a non-silica antifreeze like Honda or GM Dexcool. Put the cap back on and top off the overflow bottle (to the high mark).

How can I get old fuel out of the reserve tank on '82 Honda Magna 750? I hope to not need to remove tank.


Hi,
Just disconnect the main fuel hose from the carb rail. Ensure that you have switched the fuel **** to reserve and this will allow the reserve tank to empty. Not all the fuel is going to come out unless you blow air into the fuel tank filler, this will then get a large percentage of the fuel out. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

Radiator Reserve Tank


Your engine is pressurizing the coolant system through a leak in the head-gasket, it could be airgaps but I'm going to be your head gasket needs replacement.

Running rough and backfires


Yes tht could be the carburator since the dirt / fine rust tht settles at the bottom of the tank has found its way in to the carb.
Clean the carbs. and replace the in-line filter.
Water in gas could also be it, since water floats and you had reached the gas to reserve the water may have found its way to the carbs and thus the rough running and back firing .
