You haven't mentioned which generation you have, the fairing removal is different among the three Gen's of plastic.....
Coolant as specified in the owner/service manual.... aluminum compatible. I prefer silicate free if you can find it, and there is no need for fancy coolants.

I'm trying to find info on removing the fairing as well. Mine's a first gen, 2003. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Apparently I need to have 10 posts before the links are visible.

Is it not in your owners manual?

If your bike is 2013 or newer you do not need to remove the fairings for a coolant change.
Do a search "Quick and easy coolant change".

Not for the OP's 2003 he doesn't. There's quite a difference between his Gen1 and TWO's Gen3.

It was nice to get in where the battery is and clean up the birds nest of wires. There were pigtails for devices no longer being used, like GPS, and what was I'm assuming a lead for heated gear running back under the seat. All of it was poorly run and I wanted it gone. The heated grips were not functioning and with those panels removed I was able to track down the problem.

The best solution is an aux. fuse panel under your seat somewhere convenient, and run the main power feed from the battery.
