I would assume that's because your dealer must have done it, and did it correctly. I talked to my dealer before burping it myself and he said don't bother because he did it twice. My wife's ZL did need coolant though!
Just burped today, 220 miles on my sled needed no coolant. Probably would have had a problem by now if there was air in the system. Adjusted the track also which was a little different than my ZL. Overall no problems with my F7 to date.
I got my sled in October also, so it was'nt burped by dealer.I was never able to get it to take any coolant using both burping procedures. I have 200 miles now. No updates done yet and hav'nt had any problems either.
i was at my dealer when my sled came out of the crate and put it together with him-we did not burp it then 'cause we did not know about the problem-then rode about 40 miles before the bulletin was published-burped it and did not have to add any coolant
I had 300 miles on my sled even before i heard about the problem. I these were through rough trails so if there was a bubble it would have worked itself out into the overflow or into the head and boom. My collant level has never changed
I installed a temp gauge... so all the coolant was drained from sled and then re-added. No problem yet. reburped my sled and it didn't need any. I have 350 miles of bumpier than hell riding since then. If i had a bumble my engine should have siezed by now.
I put it on a stand and ran it till the right running
board got warm and had to add coolent. I did it again
and had to add to it again total of 2.5 miles 2 diff times.
Then found out about burpping so I burpped it and did
not have to add water to it. 135 miles on it now and no
prob so far.
After about 20 miles my sled needed more coolant, there was an Air bubble, the tank was nearly empty. Reburped it at 40 and 60 miles, never had to add coolant until an air bubble found it's way into the head at 100 miles this weekend and took out the mag side cylinder. Don't assume it's fine. Always check your running boards every ride.
