When the radiator fan failed the oil pressure warning light came on, I pulled over and could hear the water bubbling (boiling?) in the overflow. The problem was obvious, I started the Versys while still hot and the fan did not kick on. I did change the coolant after the fan was replaced.
Yea, no problem with the fork seals, we did change the fork oil when we installed the Hyperpro springs. The valves were OK at 20,000 miles, at 30,000 miles exhaust valves were starting to get tight. Will check them again soon. I check the Versys over carefully before my long rides, everything has been lubed. I check and clean the air cleaner once in awhile, maybe 7500 miles. I didn't mention this before but I add fuel injection cleaner every 10,000 miles, sooner if I have a real dirty air cleaner.
I was able to get the stator in Bogota, the only reason it took a week is that it had to be shipped by bus and it was sent to the wrong town. As you know, most of these little moto shops can make just about any part, if I need a stator again, I'll just this one rewound.
