Default How to drain Pampera coolant

Hi,

Unlike the EC, there's no Service manual on-line for the Pampera 250 2-stroke (mine's a 2002 mk3).
So, please can someone tell me how to drain the coolant ?
The EC has a drain hole on the pump-cover, but the Pampera doesn't.
Do I take the whole water pump cover off ?
This seems logical, but I don't recall doing this before (it's been a loooong while, as the bike wasn't used for years) and I'm nervous about needing a new rubber seal for the cover as Pampera spares are not easy to get these days.
Thanks for any help,
Mike in the UK

Instead of disturbing the cover, what about removing the lowest rad hose connection and leaning the bike over to get the coolant out?

The Pampera has a trials motor. I just looked at my 01 TXT 280 and it is a Phillips screw just behind the front bolt on the cover.

Can you post a pic. ?

Those connections are crimped on, one-time use. Best left alone...

The Pampera pump cover has 2 allen key bolts. Nothing else. I guess I just remove it...
