What would happen if you put tap water into a water cooled motorbike?

if you put tap water in the bike INSTEAD of coolant, you would run the bike for a few miles, the water would turn into steam, either evaporate or boil over an not cool the bike and you would seize and destroy the engine. If you use it with coolant, like a 50/50 mix, you will probably be fine as long as you are changing your coolant each year. If you are worried about the recommended "distilled" water, do not be too worried. Just be sure that you do not have hard water or anything with softeners or things that could interfere with the cooling system. You also have to worry about the water adding to the corrosive properties of the coolant. Like I said, if you do it, 50/50 with the proper specified coolant, you will be fine as long as you are changing the coolant at the recommended intervals.

Where is Coolant drain 1986 Honda VT1100C?

The bolt to drain the coolant is on the water pump. The water pump is on the left side of the bike, just in front of the oil filter. Just remove the 10mm bolt CLOSEST TO THE OIL FILTER. You'll want to remove the radiator cap prior to doing this so the coolant drains freely. NOTE: Make sure the coolant is cold so you don't get scalded.

Your 86 kawasaki 454 ltd is still over heating after you changed the radiator thermostat and fan?

does the fan even turn on? my bike was over heating because i broke the fan switch on the bottom of the radiator. i ground the wire too the frame and the fan turned on and cooled the radiator down. note the fan will still run if u turn your bike off . so what i did was loosen the switch which also drains the radiator. and soldered a wire on the center pin and reinstalled it . replaced the antifreeze and now the bike runs great.
