I have an 2004 Goldwing and the owners manual shows the lo and hi range marks on the dipstick and mine appears to be at the top of the range. However, I tried to stick a tester in the hole to suck out some fluid to check the condition of it and it certianly want reach with the 6" hose and I can't get it out of the radiator either. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I'm guessing you are trying to use an automotive hydrometer & bulb to test the coolant? You can do the old fashioned syphon trick, just be careful since glycol is toxic. If that makes you squeamish, use a 'jiggle' syphon and a longer hose to drain it.

Use some fish tank hose. Stick it down the hole and connect the end to a (and don't use your wife's) turkey baster. Suck some out and test.
