Oh yeah, and leave the covers off to start the bike and check your work and its operation, including noises. On the 1200 I have, you have to pull the radiator to perform this procedure, but you can run any bike that is cool to start with for a minute or two and not damage anything. Don't rev it, of course. You'll be "cricket-free" in no time!
"I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation. War is hell." ~ Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman
