Re: Cooling system

All good to know. On my 1500, when I wash the bike with water, either after riding in the rain or at the end of the season or a couple of times a year. I really drown my radiators with water and try and get all the gunk out that I can with the yard garden hose and never the car wash.

Re: Valve stems

Some change every time tires are changed and some never. I've changed mine 3 times in 7 years but that was to change to a different valve stem style. If you still have the rubber ones definitely change to the metal ones or the low profile aluminium ones.
