Crush washer

Anyone know the part number for the coolant drain plug crush washer? Will be doing a coolant change soon and would like to get a couple to keep around. Thanks

I'm not even sure where the real drain is, on this bike. Ok, I just found it in his video. I use the lower hose, on the left side of the bike. If you loosen the clamp, you can work the hose off of the motor side. In this video, notice how the lowest hose is 2 inches (or so) lower than the drain bolt. Look just to the left of where hes working. It lower, so it should drop as much coolant , or more, than you can from the real drain.

Of course, the washer is listed in the oil pump section of the parts lock-up. Just where we expected it to be....?

Thanks rcannon409. I was looking for it in the water pipe diagram. I was wondering if I'd been hitting the water pipe while I was looking for it there.

It's the lower right hand bolt on the water pump housing....no need to remove a hose. I just flushed my coolant. I also reused the aluminum crush washer without incident.

I like the hose because its lower in the system. Also, of there are any chunks, or large particles, they flow out of the hose easier than the drain. Hopefully yours is early enough to not have an issue. I found several clamps that were loose. Not leaking , but not tight enough. Not a bad idea to check them as most are easy to access.

I love the diagram. Is there a better place to hide this bolt than in the oil diagram?

I think I said, "lowest" hose and that's not correct. The gose I remove is the lower section of the one that connects to the radiator.

I've had mine off at least 5 times, since 2012, so its not stuck in place. You dont even need tools to remove it once the clamp is loose. I really dont think it matters much, on this specific bike, where you drain it from. Especially if you do this once per year. The coolant never gets old, so if some gets left behind, whatever.
