You must be talking about bleeding the air out of the cooling? But possibly the brake or oil injection. You got'a let us know.

Ok, the 04's have the extra hose (the small one) that comes off the head and goes to the coolant tank. So I think that takes the trickery out of bleeding the coolant. The 03's don't have that hose. But, if you raise the front a little, I don't think you will have any problems.

The 03's do have that hose BTW.

Justin, pour in as much coolant as it will take, jack up the front of the sled (as high as you can like 2ft is nice), if it drains down pour some more. Run the sled and let the coolant start to circulate. Set the front down and jack up the back. Run the sled again. Top off the coolant and go. When winter rolls around just ride your sled locally for a while and check the coolant.
