  1. Changed the coolant draining only the water pump plug. I got about a little over 2 quarts. That’s about 80% of the coolant capacity. I think I’m content with that, if I change every other year going forward. Despite it was the 1st coolant change (almost 6years and 24k), it looked nice green color, not too dark at all.
  2. I do, and I see in the picture what it looks like. I removed the right side fairing but I still don’t see it. I actually see a what I think is the cylinder head drain but I’m not certain, and it looks the like access to it is very limited. I wonder if anyone got this step done and if so which side of fairing it’s best accessed and how much coolant actually there?
  3. That might be what I end up doing doing. How do you drain the coolant reservoir tank?
  4. Hi! Has anyone done the coolant change on their 8th gen? I can't find the cylinder head drain plug. Does draining it lead to much additional coolant loss? I wonder if I could getaway draining only the water pump plug? Or perhaps drain it twice to make sure most of old stuff is gone..
  5. Normally, black color seems to hide the lines. But it looks good in pics and I think might be even better in person. Why does Honda dis not bring this color to US is beyond me?!
  6. I thought lithium batteries are lot less maintenance?
  7. A little bit of adventure! I know the stress of keeping the bike upright and worrying about any damage to the bike. This where a proper adventure bike would have been so much better!
  8. I did nearly 5,000 miles this season. What stands out the most: a couple 1,300 ish mile trips trip to Vernal, UT and Taos, NM. And finally, a beautiful day fall day ride through a few CO night mountain passes.
  9. 1. My center stand and side stand are little slow to revert back to the original position. It still does it but it does not have the pop to it. Does the spring need to be changed? 2.Does anyone replace a chain without replacing sprockets or is it a big no no? My sprockets look good by my chain looks like it’s running out of adjustment. 23K on both: chain and sprockets.
  10. Nice report: enjoy reading about different beautiful roads and sights! Enjoys this once in the lifetime opportunity!
  11. FZ6 was also a bike I wanted really bad for my 2nd bike. It looked good, sounded good, and like 6th gen, which I ended up getting, had the sexy under seat exhaust! Sounds like a great bike for sure!
  12. 1. In SD, what is worth the ride is the Needles Highway, just make sure it’s during the weekday. 2. In MT/WY, I hope you’re not missing the Chief Joseph. It connects Beartooth hwy to Cody, WY. 3. From Craig, Co make sure to hit Twentymile Coal Rd, it is right after Hayden and goes around Steamboat Springs. Then you can take Gore Pass to Kremlins and onto RMNP.
  13. Interesting to know about the fueling of 2016 Versys 650. I had ridden one early generation 650 and it left me tingling everywhere. Lol, should have named it Vibrator 650 instead. Hopefully they have addressed that later models.
