Look under the right side rear foot beg. You should see a small black cap that says coolant.

Cooling system

The KTM sx is a full race bike - the radiators do not have fans to keep the bike cool when not moving - the bike must be moving to keep the air passing through the radiators to keep the engine cool - if you have the bike standing still there is no air moving through the radiator - hence why it over heats - tip start the bike after you are fully kitted up for your ride - let it warm up for around a min tops then ride - if you have to stop for a period of time when riding turn the bike off - I have the same issues of over heating if not moving on my VOR 530 - I do as described above and have no issues at all with over heating when riding. good luck

Steps to taking apart radiator and hoses

Radiator hoses usually only need changing if they leak or are very perished. An '05 should have reasonable condition hoses. If they do need changing or you are putting some crazy colored hoses on:
1. Take off your radiator cap.2. You may need to take the fuel tank off in some cases.3. Get a 2 litre container with a large opening or funnel ready to catch your coolant.

4. Undo the coolant drain plug/bolt on the water pump and use the container to catch the flowing coolant, it may squirt a little.
5. Match your new hose to the same section on the bike and make note of the way it is installed.
6. Loosen the hose clamps on the section you are working on and push them back along the hose a little way.
7. Gently twist and pull the hose away from it's connection points, if it's till tight loosen the hose clamp more.
8. Repeat 5,6,7 for any other hoses in the cooling system.
9. Transfer the hose clamps onto your new coolant hoses.
10. Install new hoses in the same position as your original hoses.
11. Make sure the hoses are fully pushed onto the connection plumbing.
12. Tighten hose clamps with a screwdriver, firm but not super tight or the hose clamp could become damaged.
13. Re-install your coolant drain bolt ensuring the copper washer is intact if used. Don't over tighten an alloy thread if applicable.
14. Fill your cooling system with anti boil / anti corrosion coolant, gently rock the bike from side to side to allow air to escape, top up as required.
15. Install your radiator cap.
16. Start the bike and check for coolant leaks or drips.
17. Re-tighten hose clamps if required.
18. Ride the bike around for a short time and check again.
19. Check the coolant level in the radiator, top up if required.
20. Ride Hard! (Always check the coolant level at regular intervals as a lack of coolant can lead to engine failure). General advice only.

Where to put the water in a Kawasaki ZXR 400 1994

The is a reservoir tank mounted under the fuel tank on the left hand side of the bike.

1. always use 50:50 water/anti-freeze
2. don't fill tank past the max line (excess coolant will get dump out the bottom of the bike when hot, and coolant of slippery ;)
3. If loosing coolant, find out why. Damaged hose, blown head gasket or stuffed thermostat are like causes.

How to fill the coolant

when bike is cold, stand the bike up straight, locate the radiator cap, twist off and pour in your coolant, start the bike now, and wrap it up to 4k a couple of times let the bike settle then if it needs more put some more in. then shut the bike off and wait about five minutes then get on the bike and lean it back and forth a couple of times to insure you still dont see trapped air bubbles escaping. if no more bubbles then put cap back on. now there is another way and that is buy pouring coolant into the little coolant tank by the rear of the bike, you just flip the tab up and fill till the appropriate level for hot or cold is reached.

Changing the Radiator fluid on the Yamaha WR426 2001

Well, that is a strange way of doing thing, but as long as it works, why not.
When you fill the coolant tank did you have the motor running because the coolant is meant to be recirculating while you fil the tank and to push out any air trapped inside the radiator until it overflows then you shut down and top up the tnk then close it. Run/use the bike as normal while everyday chacking to ensure proper fluid level is in the tank. If satisfied you can stop checking as it would be fine after that.

Kawasaki motorcycle is heating up and engine not being cooled

if the water pump was working before draining all the fluids i would possibly rule out the pump failing. i do think it is very possible, while very common that there may need to be more coolant added. coolant needs to be added through the radiator cap, and a good practice is to run the cycle while the cap is off and add coolant accordingly. do this for a few minutes. cause likely what has happened is there was an air pocket when adding the coolant, and this can make is seem like enough was put in. but after the pump working it can cycle the water through and help expose those pockets.
hope this was helpful. thank you.
