PostSubject: Coolant drain plug torque   Thu Feb 14, 2013 9:51 pm

Does anyone know the torque spec for the coolant drain plug? I just bought the bike and want to change the coolant but don't have the service manual yet. I have found the procedure in this forum but I always like to tighten bolts to the specified torque is available.

Thanks,
Chris

Tinman,

Just wanted to thank you again and follow up the fluid change. All went well and got brand new coolant on the bike.

I just got bought this bike a couple of weeks ago. Honestly, I was concerned about the purchase because the bike is a 2005 and looked like new but only had 1300 miles on it. Obviously it has been sitting for a long time which is not a good thing. But the bike looked pristine and ran great so I took the risk and bought it.

Upon getting home, I took it all apart Smile. It seems to be in very good mechanical order and besides a little rust in the fuel tank filler neck (tank is fine inside) and a couple broken plastic tabs in the body (promptly fixed), I can't find much evidence of problems due to the low use and old age.

I couldn't be happier, the bike is running phenomenal and took it on a long trip last weekend. No problems at all.

So thanks again for such a great and resourceful forum and I'm sure I will have some Q's for the experts in the future Smile

Regards,
Chris
