How to keep the radiator clean on a 3,000 mile trip?

Unread post by Soldano16 » Sat Jun 06, 2009 4:55 am

I'm taking a naked Honda 919 on the road. My first liquid cooled bike. I'm assuming my radiator will get fairly covered with bugs along the way.

Cleaning suggestions please or is it really not a potential issue?

Periodically brush off the big chunks as they collect. It should be no more of a problem than riding 3000 miles in 100 mile trips would be.
No Witnesses.... :shifty:
