Hi lesley,

Some times parking lots can misleading when it comes to leaks. Best to park it in the garage and place a clean piece of card board under her and take a look later.

I would suggest removing the right hand glove box, which would allow you shine a flashlight and view the coolant tank and some of the hoses.

Could you be more specific what you mean by the "lower fairing" which could be interpreted a couple of ways.

Good idea to have shop manual, follow Honda's procedures.

Here's the general procedure:

1) Remove both floor mats
2) Remove each floor skirt under each floor mat. There are bolts, screws and tabs to deal with.
3) Remove the floor skirt (bolts and trim clips). Be very careful removing these push pin trim clips, otherwise you will have to buy new ones. Use a scribe or very sharp pointed metal like a nail to push in on the trim clip. That loosens the clip and allows you to gently wiggle it out.

As John said, it's best to get a service manual. It will save all kinds of grief in the long run.

If you follow the air bleeding method in the service manual you would have avoided the air pocket. For those that don't have the manual:

Place the bike on the center stand making sure it's level.
Fill the reserve tank to the upper level line.
Fill the system with coolant through the filler opening up to the filler neck.
Leaving the rad cap off, start the engine and let it idle for 2-3 mins.
Snap the throttle 3-4 times to bleed air from the system.
Stop the engine, add coolant to the proper level if necessary.
Reinstall the rad cap.
Check the coolant level in the reserve tank and fill to the upper level if low.
