    Hey Bill, I had a 83 Venture that I bought new and rode for close to 90k miles. I noticed a coolant drip in the same place you did on your max. It was when it was cold weather also. There is a black o-ring in there that can be replaced. It stopped my leak.

    Just because its green doesn't mean its good.

    I'm going to flush and use zerex G05 next spring and started using RMI-25 Cooling System Treatment in my trucks.. Probably add some of that to the bikes as well.

    One of my 85's runs a little warm. Any suggestions on a aggressive flush? Iv read a vinegar/water mix and flush and neutralize with baking soda, but that was a while ago.
