Installed a poor man's GPS. An iPhone 4S, MotionX GPS app, a LifeProof case with bar mount, and a new USB port added to switched power. Good to go!

There was also reports of left over casting sand in some bikes, so I figured that I would flush out the system and replace the coolant with "lowtox" coolant- reported to lower temps better than standard coolant.

Close call, nice to catch that before major damage. Were you able to reuse the gasket or have a new at the ready.

I reused the gasket, even though I had a new spare. I cut the clamp that holds on the breather hose, and used a low budget clamp to replace it.
