I don't have the service manual yet - its on my wish list. And the owner's manual doesn't say. But can anyone tell me what the 09 Swing's coolant capacity is? I want to do a complete flush within the next few days.

Thanks. The Swing must have a sizable radiator, the last few bikes that I flushed out coolant didn't seem to take near that much.

Just one more tip. Use Pro Honda HP coolent, it's the best for this scooter. I just needed to top off my reserve tank after a small leak.

Thanks. I guess after a while every comes to have a preference for coolant brand. I used to put Honda type 2 coolant in everything, especially when I owned 2 Honda cars. Last year I heard about Zerex for Asian vehicles and decided to make that my universal motorbike coolant. It has the same chemical makeup of Honda and Toyota coolants, about $14/gal and Napa stores carry it.
