Coolant Capacity / Fluid change - F3 675

So my crush washers have arrived and I wanna do an oil & coolant & brake fluid change this week. *This will be the first time for me doing this.

Bike: F3 675 '17 ABS

(Coolant)
So I've been searching through the owners manual, workshop manual and engine manual.
Maybe I've overlooked it but I cannot seem to find the amount of liters I need to refill the F3 up. So if someone kindly could reply with the amount.
Im using Bel-ray racing coolant since bought brand new and im satisfied with the product. The bike runs cool even on warm days with the fans only kicking in when stopping in traffic.
*I have 2 bottles stored in my garage, one of those has been opened up to fill expansion container. That was 1 year ago. Is this still usable or could tiny dirt elements find its way into it?
Any tips & tricks to get air out of the system? Heard it not the easiest of bikes to get the air out.

(Brake fluid): I do not own a pump or air pressurized system. Old school handpumping needs to be done.
As for brake fluid? What do you guys recommend me for product and amount of liters. Manual recommended AGIP dot 4 isnt available in my country. Or should I keep it simple and let a mechanic do it?
Or any tips & tricks aspecially regarding the rear brake.


*(Oil)
For oil change i'll be using Eni I-ride racing 5w-40.
Oil filter Hi-Flo HF569

Coolant capacity is basically one of the motorcycle coolant 1/2 gallon bottles. Maybe 2 liter in europe size? Fill the system while on side stand then lean bike over fully to the left and right. Don't drop the bike!! It's heavy when leaned over! Check and top off the radiator. Then add to the reservoir while on side stand. Doesn't take much fluid. The line is pretty low.

Engine oil change is best done with the cooler drained. Cooler traps lots of dirty oil. It'll be something like 2.75 liters. Can you let us know if the new crush washer is thinner than your old one?

Brake flush for abs is a little messy. There is a techinical bulletin documenting the sequence for the abs pump.

Best make sure that it's not like the Gen 1 F4s that spit out anything over 'minimum' level!

Your "opened" bottle of coolant will be fine.

As for brake fluid...buy a high quality DOT4 fluid. Don't cheap out. Brake fluids, even with the same specification (DOT4) are NOT all the same. Any quality name brand will be fine, just don't get the cheapest no-name from the auto store.

Alright @airjawed, Ill ask my father to help me lean the bike over when filling up coolant. Better safe than sorry
I'll measure the crush washer that was on, and the new one that is going to be placed.
FWIW, I recieve aluminium washers instead of copper.

@nigelrb As for the coolant level it also shoudnt be higher then MIN letters on the F3. Under pressure the coolant level rises to about 3/4th in the resorvoir.
