Maintenance and Servicing / Re: Draining & replacing coolant
« on: September 07, 2020, 03:30:36 AM »
You will be better off opening all the drain ports you can and rock the bike back and forth  to help "all" of the coolant find its way out. It is a good idea to pull off the coolant tank to empty completely, you should also clean out any crud or deposits.

If you are in a hurry and the coolant is not too bad you could just drain and refill. There will still be some old coolant in the mix, it all depends on how comfortable you are with the end result.

Topo, I went with the Storm to block more wind when it gets cold, will leave them off in the summer. The install was not bad at all. There are a couple of videos on youtube on how to remove the original end weights. Pressing the tabs like you are supposed to is a big PITA. There is one video where the guy puts a metal plate in the opening between the weight and the grip and whacks the end weight out. I worked a square screwdriver shank into the opening and pried a little. Once the weight moved a bit it was easy to pull out by hand.

Install was easier JMo has a good video covering everything and it ended up I needed to make the same choices on position to keep the cables and wires free.

No link, I just called the parts dept  at the dealer and he looked it up and ordered it. I did call twice and the first guy quoted $160 plus shipping, the second guy left it off.

Maintenance and Servicing / Locks
« on: May 28, 2020, 02:03:08 AM »
Just a heads up, I was lubricating the locks on my panniers with graphite and figured I would hit the ignition and fuel tank locks at the same time. Everything was smooth as silk except the fuel tank lock, which would not turn at all. I had only opened the tank one time before so I was thinking that something was left inside from the factory and flaked off when I fueled up. The compressor was full so I shot some air down the key slot and tried again, it opened fine. I thought I might as well lube it up so I gave it some more graphite. I go to test my handiwork and again the key would not turn. The powdered graphite was my problem. I think the powder would not let the key go in all the way. I am glad I tried the air before I started taking things apart. Hope this helps someone.
