Just clamp the hoses like I did in that link I posted.... No draining anything required, once you pull the lower hose off the Rad you can fill a bucket and re-use the coolant (I didn't, but you could re-use it)

I would bleed it. Change the rad and fill it to the top. I like to pull it op on some blocks or jack the front up a little to get the rad a little higher. Open the bleeder and watch for a clean flow of coolant. Do both cylinders and make sure to keep the rad full. I like to ride it a little . Get it up to temp. to get any trapped air bubbles loose and bleed it again just to make sure I got it all. Make sure to fill your over flow

1 more question anyone know of any coolant that might be better than the BRP premixed especially with anti corrosion inhibitors?

looking for premixed with anti corrosion inhibitors that is better and/or cheaper than the BRP stuff.

There is a small amount still in the ovdrflow tank any help would be great thank you.

since you shut it down right away I can't see there being any damage to the water pump seal.
