First thing I did when we bought our 1800 was to rip a hole in the radiator overflow tank unloading it out of the trailer. Second thing I did was buy and install a belly pan and a new overflow tank. We love our bike, but we sure do question Mother Honda's logic on some of her manufacturing Technics. Good looking mod, btw.

Thank you for this post. I just went thru the belly pan, coolant reservoir hassle in the past few days getting ready for the PA Outback meeting. I am agrivated to say the least. Overnight shipping amounted to about $100. Stupid design. Everyone reading this get a belly pan now and make sure your coolant reservoir doesn't leak.

Thanks. Unfortunately I didn't see that model before I bought this one. If this Mod doesn't work I might just get this one next. Did see one comment on head in customer comments that I read.
