    We’re only talking about the saddlebag locks, right? The rear top case uses a different key entirely.

    I use a plastic puck I got from an Indian open house. Are you referring to one that attaches to your kickstand? With an interference fit or something?

    The Liquid Performance stuff is propylene glycol. That's perfectly fine, and personally I prefer it for its _much_ lower toxicity. However, Amsoil's is the only bigger brand-name propylene glycol...

    Kaz, I agree with Dave: You can do the check and adjust without removing the radiator, but it isn’t worth the hassle or damage risk. It is better to drain & remove the radiator.

    As has been said, the NCX shakes its head a bit if you let go of the bars at about that speed. Some owners report little to no shaking, some quite a bit. I get more shake if I have more weight on the...
