    I think you will need slightly more than a bottle of Premix for busa. Why don't you visit the above mentioned bikeshops, they should be able to charge you as a package that includes any top up required instead of buying 2 full bottles. It is best to change any coolant on a yearly basis. The 18 month is a deliberate endurance test.

    Nope, coolant lifespan typically gauged with duration of use. Corrosion and the means to prevent it is an ongoing process regardless u ride the bike or not.

    $18 for 1.9L Ready to Use. It should be enough for Super4. Go to a bike shop and pay them a little labour money. A good flush and cooling system bleeding is critical for best results.

    i think maxima is good..
    flushed on both of my bike..
    X9 cannot really see the differences.
    but for my other bike did notice a drop in temperture.
    but the temperture rises very fast lor.

    ok.just flush the coolant yesterday today when going to second link usually my temperture is around 82 in the afternoon to my shock on my way to second it reaches only 79 and lowest is 77. crusing speed is around 100km.
    on my way back the temperature reaches 83 to 84 crusing speed is the same around 100km maybe it i rode the bike for sometime resulting in higher temperture.

    overall will recommend maxima

    Flushed my coolent today on my S4 using the normal one .. call castrol brand one 2 litre.. all for $20 bucks only .. green colour one.. so far not bad and better than the previous add many water one .. haha ----- Castrol coolent good ? next coolent change maybe go for better ones... how long can a coolent last for next change ? 1 year ?
    Acceleration power is not important than a good perfect braking system to prevent an accident.

    flush and chage once a year will be recommended... but if you are heavy with the usage, half a year is what i was told.

    Once a yr change coolant and flushed. 1 a month check ur spare coz the main radiator quite leceh to check as need to take out the tank.

    But for my COE bike I change my coolant once every 6 months.

    which shop told you that? I'm really curious. Coolant is not sulphuric acid.

    Your coolant system really needs some thorough flushing judging by the color.
    Do also clean up the coolant container as it could contain algae or persistant stain...

    normally aftermarket or better products when you change it, you may experience the placebo effect of it being better than what you previously used.

    but my experience told me, once you change the particular product to normal ones. you will definately feel the diff.

    in simpler terms:
    when you upgrade, you may make yourself feel the diff as you are paying more for the better product.
    when you downgrade, you really can feel the diff as you are too used to the better product.

    my example was when i'm using Engine Ice. just recently changed back to normal green coolent, the fan just kept on turning on every trip and i could really feel the heat.

    "Coolant flush"..or "Coolant system flush"?..what did you do or meant by coolant flush?

    "temp light lights up in jam.. "....you have reach the overheating point?..did your fan cut "on"?

    "reservoir see got water.. rev abit water still there.. after that off engine and awhile later realise reservoir empty.. ".........Coolant water is drying up already. The first time you see it because there is pressure in the coolany system but when it cool off and settle down..it all sits in the soolant system. Hope your mixtures ratio is correct whe you last change..motoshop did for you or yourself?

    What you can do now is drained out all the coolant again, take off the fuel tank and access the radiator cap and pour in new coolant (get the premixed one..that's no need to mixed yourself). Once radiator full..start your bike and rev a bit and wait till its hot and top up coolant mixtures again till you see overflowing when the bike engine idles. Shut the engine, put back radiator cap and go filled the reserve coolant reservoire to 2nd level indication (make sure your bike is upright). From here on..monitor situation again.

    Still got problem..come back here...I suggest stage two.

    4get about stage two now lah..old fingers very lazeee 2 type Tot you selling off your Ver S olehdee!!!?

    Takiing off the tank is a simple task lah. I think all can do except you...LOL!

    1) Use yur key to open up seat.

    2) Depending om model of S4..there is a bolt or two at end of tank where it meet the seat front. Size 12 I think.

    3) On your left side mid under tank..pull of the fuel and vavcum tube. Don't asked me what tubes..they are both connected to the fuel kork. If your's is S4 or PB1..switch the tap to "off" position. By right, if you don't level "off"..there should be no petrol flow from your fuel tube also unless your diaphragm is bad olehdee (got kit set..can change).

    4) Go to your right side below tank..there is a pair wire connector, detach it. Its your fuel gauage sensor connection and one end is attached the tank (that's why you have to take it off).

    5) Now..lift the tank from the back upwards and use the other hand to hold the top center end..slide back a bit and lift it upwards.

    Note: There are supposed to be two rubber hose attached under the tank (mostly missing in second hand bike)..one is a "overflow" which is the alrge one and the other, half the dimeter size is the "bleeder" tube..you have to take it off if you have them still.

    Good luck and don't drop that tank
