Finally back together..
Lonestar BMW replaced my steering "ball joint" and I installed it on Misty then completed all my little things she needed..
- Front shock rubber bushings
- final drive
- brake flush (yearly)
- Coolant replace
- replace Rad. cap...
- fix plastic trim in several locations
I then ran the bike to warm up tonight.. only around neighborhood.. less than a mile.. noticed a few things..
- Front end has NEVER felt this good.. always had a "clicking" / thumping..
- brakes feel new again...
- shifting is smooth.. bike rolls so good...
- now,...two things I noticed..
first.. clutch "engagement" point seemed to vary... maybe I got some air in line when flushing clutch??? I never saw it happen..
second.. when fans engaged (pretty quick after flush) the "bar was about 2/3 up..." when it did, I got a fog of antifreeze out of the left vent.. I thought I'd cleaned out the spilled Antifreeze... but maybe I didn't after all.
Anyone have these two things happen?
