General Maintenance

Just ordered up some antifreeze and brake fluid for some good old general maintenance. Have to stop at the dealership to get some crush washers yet and the auto parts store for the Rotella and filter. First time I will be changing the antifreeze and brake fluid on the 919 should go easy.

best part about naked bikes is how easy maintenance is. my buddy with a zx10r envies how quickly I can do oil changes.

Also Let me know about how long the coolant change takes you. I need to do mine soon

I read the manual it says to use the drain bolt on water pump to drain. I figured it's been 2 yrs since I got the bike time to chance it.
