1st of all you can get water wetter at ANY autoparts store, and most are open untill 9. 2nd for coolant you COULD just run distilled water no problem it would be the same as anything else, but it could freeze in the winter, but probably not here in Hot A$$ H-town. To change it out is really easy, Maxgs and myself just did his Gixxer1k last week. Take off the left and right side fairrings, and prop up the tank. On the bottom of the left side is a hose with an 8mm screw clamp, loosen and remove the hose. Be SURE the bike is cool or you run the risk of burning you hand. Under your tank is your resevior. Use some surgical tubing to siphon and drain. DO NOT swallow the green stuff it can KILL you. Next on the right side is your radiator, simply take off the cap and start to pour DISTILLED water. Tap water has salts and minerals that will DESTROY your engine. Replace the hose on the left, and fill your radiator, turn the bike on, and let it heat untill the thermostat kicks on. Stand back because it is going to "burp" some. If you burn your it is not my fault, so stand back. Do this process about 3 or 4 times. you will need approximately 4 gallons of DISTILLED water. When ready, mix the water wetter 1oz per litre so 4oz per gallon. You can eyeball it, so don't get too technical. After you are satisfied with the flush, refill the resevoir and the radiator, tighten the clamp and you are good to go. Add a little extra in the resevoir for when the thermorstat kicks on and pulls some to fill the radiator all the way up.

Anti freeze is toxic so DO NOT pour it down the sink or in the drain pipe. Get a hazardous bottle and dispose in a lawful manner. KEEP YOUR DOG AWAY. It is sweet and dogs suck it right up. And yes it WILL KILL YOUR DOG.

PM me if you have any questions.
