I want to top up my coolant level. The coolant in their is only 4 months old but after a tour around europe it could do with topping up. Please can someone advise the best way to do this. Can i just pour a bit in, or just add water? i dont need to flush the whole system do i?:D

Coming up to this time of year I'd be topping it up with some anti-freeze matey. No need to flush before hand.

I always find that there's a void at the top of the radiator when I remove the cap. Assuming you can get enough coolant in the space, is there a good reason why can't you fill it up there, instant of fumbling around by the swinging arm?
I ask coz I always fill it this way

I think topping off with distilled water should be fine. Do not use tap water.
Unless you live in Scotland where the water is so pure it can be used in car and bike rads

But as "The White" says I would be adding antifreeze this time of year if its needing topped up

Well, I've always topped mine up by the RH radiator and never had any problems. It doesn't require a syringe or cralwing around on your knees

Crawling around on the knees can help save soles!
