Has been Texan longer than the cheerleader
Well I've been using the bike as a commuter to work and back for about the last month now.... working the bugs out of it and such before I hand it over to my son next month. Anyway today I get up early and see what it's like without having any traffic to hender my ride to work.Well about the time I get to the freeway I meet up with some guy on an R1 that wants to play...... I was like ok cool!The freeway was clear of any real traffic so we open it up....... I got it up to about 145 and it Kinda surprised me that when I looked back he was about a 1/4 mile back.....I guess his back pack was more like a parachute!!Anyway I had it up at 145 or so for about 10 seconds before I feel my right leg getting completely soaked!!!I was like wtf!!!!So I slow it down and start looking for a water leak...... didn't notice one so I just kept on to work, it wasn't getting hot so I figured maybe it was ok.well eventually the temp needle started to climb so I tried my best to make it all the way to work without having to pull over.Finally got to work to find that the 1/4" water line running to the oil cooler had completely popped off the fitting running to the front of the cylinder head.Also found that the springs holding my header on were gone now too......Looks like it's safety wire time for the header!!
