Re: Bucket...I mean to-do list on bike while awaiting coolant hoses:
I did all the external fuel lines and in the tank with what I got at the local auto parts store. The bends internally have been on now for 60K miles, and fine. The other external ones with the same stuff, and they have been ok for the past four years.
Since I had so much hassle figuring out my coolant leak, and ended up with a new radiator, I put on some OEM hoses-killed me and the budget, but wanted to not have anything go wrong like last year with some overheating in the mountains.
I loved your 'don't want to be standing on the side of the road next to a flaming bike in the middle of no where!' I figure with 200K on mine, if that happens, I'll take the license plate off, and head home-scanning the ads for the next bike on the way. Ride safely.
