    GP1300R question

    hey guys,

    newbie here, so I'm sure this is a dumb question

    I've got a 08' rxp-x and a 03' GP1300r

    should i flush these bad boys out everytime I get back from the lake ???

    or should you do that just for salt water ?

    how dirty is the lake/river? You are driving in... Sometimes a flush here or there never hurts. Have fun on your new purchase's, your going to have a blast!

    I take mine to the lake to flush them. Usually only after a salt ride requires flushing. Make sure you start them after you get home with a couple snaps of the throttle to get moisture out of the waterboxes. The moisture can steam into an open exhaust port or valves.
