Don't use just plain water, you won't be doing your engine any good what so ever.

Most bike shops will sell pre-mixed coolant so there not even the hassle of how much to mix it, just make sure they give you stuff that is Aluminium safe.

I would be very worried by this lack of coolant. Disappearing coolant is a very expensive sign.

Could and hopefully will just be not topped up enough after a service, (on r6's some people remove raditor so access to spark plugs is easier)

Hi. I'm new to the site. My concern not having coolant and suggestions: 1 check for leaks. This could be done with water so keeping cost down.2. Check head not blown. This probably needs tobe done by a dealer/ bike garage. After this has been identified and fixed. Then proper coolant mix is a must to safeguard the system. Good luck.
