You can use pretty much any small container for a coolant catch, or better yet use none. Switch to distilled water and water wetter, if a little spews out it won't cause problems. I use a baby bottle on the SV (race org.'s require something) and it has collected maybe a half ounce over 3 race weekends
How do you check the radiator level to make sure you still have enough fluid?

Hmm, a complicated process, but I guess it must be done.

If you think you may lose sleep over the water level, LP has some fancy aluminum catch cans for like $40. Your local car speed shop prolly has some too, along with stuff to dress up/cover up all those hoses and lines.

A very nice looking bike, but it needs abit of something in the front. I would think that a belly pan, or a colored cage, or perhaps just some radiator covers will make it all come together.

I don't like it when people just crash their bikes and have no fairing and call it a street fighter.
