As an aside, I find it best to check the coolant level at night, a dark garage would do, if I had one!

If you remove the coolant bottle cap and shine a light into the orifice, the level shows up much better than trying to do it in daylight.

Now we seem to have got into coolant issues, can anyone tell me if there is a ( relatively easy ) method of changing the coolant without special equipment to refill, so that you can be sure there are no air locks - I assume this is why BMW use special equipment- or say they do in the manual.

It needs to be vacuum filled, kits are available on Ebay.

It is an early k1200s and does have the bleed nipple. For safety it is a vacuum kit then I guess.

Now would be a good time to include your Model and year in your profile Graham, this demonstrates why  ;D ;)

Very neat kit, being designed 'flat'. Mine is a clumsy three dimensional thing which is in a 'huge' box.

If you haven't hit the 'buy' button yet, one caution is that you need a small (conical?) adaptor for the radiator cap orifice.

A lot of car kits don't have the small adaptor!

I'm not buying one just yet, I still need to get my radiator dirty and then time to fall apart before replacement and then refill
