Fairing Removal to Add Coolant

Greetings. I'm not sure if this is the correct area to post my question. So I may be in error here. However, I have a couple of very basic questions: Is there a simple process for adding coolant to a 2016 Kawasaki ZX10R? Do you have to follow the owner's manual by removing all the rivets? I searched for an answer in the forums but I didn't find a solution or comparable alternative. Thanks.

You have to get to the top of the reservoir bottle. You can see the bottle through the opening in right lower fairing. It's easiest to remove the right lower and the right inner fairing around the instrument cluster under the handlebar. Then you can flex the upper out a bit and use a funnel. The service manual will show how to do it all and there's a download link on here.
When I added coolant to mine I only needed to removed the right lower fairing. You can drop the bottle down by removing a bolt that holds it up. Add what you need then bolt it back up.
I use another reservoir bottle and use the hose to travel that mase And you just open and close the top small hole to let the coolant flow
