Question about 2003 Honda VT 1100 C2 Shadow Sabre
Follow the upper radiator hose, there is a radiator cap on the right side. With the motor cold take off the radiator cap and make sure the radiator is full at that point. It is important that you fill the radiator at the cap/high point of the system, because the total volume of antifreeze in the motorcycles system may not have enough vacuum to draw the fluid all the way up from the over flow bottle and you will have cooling problems. The Shadows tend to run on the warm side any way with out the extra assistance of a low fluid level. Then find the over flow tank located near the right driver foot peg and fill it to the full mark. Use only no silica formula antifreeze like Honda or GM Dexcool , the scrubbing particles in automotive antifreeze can damage the ceramic seal in you motorcycle water pump. After your initial drive and a cool down period , recheck the level in the over flow bottle and top up as needed.
