Default How much coolant does a 96 1000f take?

I am going to replace the coolant and replace 50/50 with super cool water wetter and antifreeze. I can't find how much coolant it takes.

Where can I find this info?

Thanks in advance

Forget the water wetter and go with a 50/50 premix of antifreeze designed for aluminum engines (Valvoline/Zerex Asian coolant, or if money isn't an issue, buy the overpriced Honda coolant). The 1000F ought to take a bit over 1 gal.

So water wetter isn't that good then?
Also the CBR 1000F has an aluminum engine?

Thanks!

I use the Toyota premix red or pink stuff perfect for ally. As I understand the premix is a antifreeze mixed with distilled water. Tap water has too many impurities.

The water in premix is demineralized deionized water...much cleaner than distilled water.

Water wetter has its uses for the track (when required), but for a daily driver it's a waste of $ and offers no advantages and lots of disadvantages, especially if you're thinking of mixing it with a quality premixed coolant.

The Toyota premix is essentially the same as the Valvoline/Zerex Asian coolant - PHOAT tech, silicate and borate free, designed for aluminum engines, pink/red in color.
