Ok I need help to remove/replace my coolant/wetter...
Alright, assume I don't know anything, (which is not too far from the truth) and I need to winterize my race bike (at least so it does not break over the winter). It is going to remain here in Knoxville for at least another month, so I am either going to have to take to a shop to do it, or attempt to do it myself. If it is not too complicated, I might attempt to do it myself. Here is my situation. I have water wetter currently in my bike. Water wetter freezes easily, so I will need to remove/replace it during the winter months. First question, is do I need to replace it with coolant if I don't intend on riding/starting it? Can I just drain it and be done until the weather warms up? Or should I do the extra work and drain the wetter and replace with regular coolant, only to remove that same coolant in a couple of months?
Or should I not even attempt this because I don't have a warm place to do this, and the wetter might not drain properly in cold temp. Take it to a shop and have them do it??
