Hello all,

I took the top off our 2019 TRixx today, at the 44-hour mark, knocking out an end-off-season oil, filter and spark plugs change when I noticed the coolant level is well below the “Cold Level” line (the engine was cold when I noticed it and took the attached photos. i seem to remember the fluid level not being al, the way up to the “Cold level” line the first time I had the top off, Summer of ‘19 when i changed out breakin oil and filter

Question 1: is the level in the photos such that I need to take the top 1/2 off (again! Arghhh!
) and top that coolant reservoir level off, before the granddaughter's next (2nd) season riding?

Question 2: am I correct that I can simply pour more into the reservoir, as pictured? (That is, I don’t have to “bleed” any lines …)

Question 3: am I correct it’d be best to $vck it up and simply get what I need to use straight from my dealer? (What I need isn’t necessarily waiting for me at the Oreillynor Advanced Auto down the street?)

Thanks in advance!

ETA: reasonably sure there is no leak (been 3 years so I suspect some came out flipping it and some possibly evaporation due to heat but nevertheless, I’m gonna watch it); I’m gonna bring the overflow reservoir level up with a 50/50 mix of coolant and distilled water. And oh yeah, watch it! ;-)

I saw the same thing on my 2018 Spark and just ordered the seadoo spec coolant on Amazon, it's only like a 12-16oz bottle so you don't end up with a gallon of coolant sitting on your shelf. It'll be a top off every year at start of season for me to check. I used ~1/2 the bottle after 2 years of riding.

Hey thanks JonK667 - youda man!

Tooling on over to Amazon now as the bud at O’Reillys was, “Buying a gallon of pink coolant for just that couple inches in reservoir is crazy - you winter store it in a heated storage warehouse - for that little bit just add some distilled (aka - “de-ionized” water) and watch it closely next season!

I like your idea better and it gibes with other advice received - thanks!
