6mm threaded bolt (8 m head) on the bottom of the water pump housing (facing outward). Do a search on this subject and there are some posts with pictures as well as some tips on changing coolant.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Read the manual

"make sure the coolant flows into the container"

Where's the fun w/that? We just let it drain onto the lift and spill all over the shop floor!

I'm surprised the manual doesn't tell you to disconnect the battery too.

You think MV's manual is silly, take a look at a Honda manual sometime, it's mechanics for dummies.

This has been clear. It's fascinating what a concussion will do to comprehension of straightforward things.

The bike runs great now - good as new. Replace two turn signals and it will be in better shape than before. Thanks, guys, for helping me and seeing me through what has been a difficult chapter. Safe riding.
