    Idling it tonight as the first heat cycle for a cooling system flush... Didn't want to annoy the neighbours too much.

    Don't mind the chain slap... Gotta pull the engine to swap cam tensioners.

    It's a good learner bike... 77% of a full tank of fuel is under the seat, lol.

    My cooling system needed some TLC, lol [​IMG]

    Not yet... Still flushing the crap out of it, lol. It's low every time I check it, so gotta see where it's disappearing to.

    A little throttle blip for y'all, lol. Proper speakers recommended...
