The engine holds less than ~3 liters of coolant.
Brake fluid is cheap and 500ml should see you sorted...however, to get "all the old fluid out" of the ABS system you need to run the brake bleeding program in the GS-911 or Motoscan. Just pumping it through the old fashioned way will bleed the reservoirs and lines but not the complete ABS system. The ABS pump needs to be activated to get "all" the old fluid out.

Thanks. Any idea what size the bleeder bolts are? Thinking about putting in one way valve bleeder.
