    Undo the bleed screw on top of the rad and then fill, squeeze the hoses a tad too.

    Fitted them to my gen 2 and looked awesome…

    Hope that helps

    the coolant settles when cold and most likely cannot be seen in the window so best to check levels after a short ride

    take the big hose off from the filler neck and the bleed screw out, fill through the hose. much easier doing it that way.

    not running by the way
