    I just did mine a few months ago. I just pulled the pump and drained the coolant. Pulled the screws on top of the plate one at time and coated below head of screw with UltraBlack or Rightstuff and reinstalled one at a time. I did as many as I could get out without pulling the plate. Its been holding coolant good since I did it. Before I was losing over a half a overflow bottle worth per ride(50-70miles). I would try this before pulling the plate.

    Otto J, When you heading to florida? Sorry, I am friend of Cal's.

    Mat pulled the plate and I checked it out,it had a hairline crack just above the drain plug across the plate,I took it home and welded it up,should be fine now,he is gonna put it back together tomorrow.

    As far as FLA,we plan to bring the skis down for the winter,but we still have ride time left here before we do.
