Bleeding cooling system ?

Wondering how to bleed the cooling system on my '97 yamaha vmax 600 ? Is there a bleed screw in the rear ? If so can't find it . Easy to pop off the recoil cover and check waterpump belt ? Thank You for any info

Best method is to put the front up higher than the rear, run it till it's warm and remove the pressure cap. Fill as needed.

the bleed screw is on the head. its a 10mm wrench size bolt on top of what would appear to be the thermostat housing.

you may consider "picking" the hose at the rear where it meets the crossover tube before warming the engine too much.
