It reduced the blow torch feeling from the gap between the frame and airbox. The seat is cooler now as well. I think a few more layers of Kevlar would have been better.

I bought my Ulysses last fall w/68k on the clock, now it's at 70k and I think an oil cooler flush couldn't hurt.

Anyone ever flushed one? If so, what was your process?
