Can coolant be flushed without accessing the overflow tank?

Is it absolutely crucial to access the overflow tank to flush out and replace the engine coolant (replacing with water wetter for a track day)?

Just trying to avoid removing the fuel tank.
Can't be be done by simply removing the drain bolt and then filling from the radiator cap??

Bike is a 2015 F3 800.
Thanks!

For the operation you seek to perform, you should be able to do it that way.

Is the overflow bottle cap access under the front of the fuel tank?

The manual does not show it clearly.

You would need to top up to below the full line on the expansion tank using that (PITA) side access.....

Indeed it is. Directly underneath the tank (unlike the F4 I think). Thanks for the tip. I think I will try that first and hopefully it will be ok.
