Hmm... I guess I got carried away with the 4 gallons of deionized h20 that I picked up then.

4 gallons? Jesus! Maybe with your new radiator you will be ok. Use leftovers for backup in case you have a leak after install.

it's ok. both of my bikes are liquid cooled, and I've not really done anything with them in 2 years except charge the batteries.
