    Check and adjust the level in the overflow tank with the bike cold.

    There is most likely no need to top the coolant off.........and over filling the coolant over flow (expansion) bottle could cause coolant to leak or over flow when the bike is warm/hot.

    SO...................fill only to the low level line on the coolant over flow bottle when the bike is cool/cold and the theory is the coolant would be close to the high level line on the bottle when the engine is hot

    PS....... it's in the owners manual

    edit........Typing the same time as beemer

    Really, Happy? There is a HIGH / LOW line. You coolant is recommended to be at least between them or on the HIGH line.

    I bought this Recommended Coolant?-motul-motocool-factory-line-35-jpg and top it up.
    Now the color is a mix of blue and red.

    I've used PEAK 50/50 auto antifreeze for years. Its Silicate and phosphate free.

    I've been using this but most tell me I'm over thinking it, as the post you quoted says, as long as it's silicate and phosphate free it should be good, many have said they used peak for a long time and never had any problems
