About to replace air filter with a K & N. Someone on the forum mentioned it's easy to go ahead and flush/fill the radiator while I'm at it. Bike has 13K miles. Anything else I should check out while I have the gas tank off?
It's about time for a valve clearance check especially as long as the tank is off and you are going to replace the coolant. I would also replace the spark plugs with NGK CR8EIX iridium plugs since you are in there even though it really isn't necessary yet. The iridiums will last a very long time.
If you don't have a louder horn, and are thinking about it, this would be a good time to install one, when you have everything apart anyway. If mixing you own coolant, be sure to use distilled water, rather than tap, and the proper type of coolant. Some bike shops sell pre-mixed coolant/water. Check your radiator hoses and clamps and replace any that appear questionable.
