Hi, Anonymous I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.

SOURCE: topping off antifreeze
Pull the right side cover off which should expose the radiator overflow bottle, just like a car. Towards the front of the bottle are the marks for full and low. Open the top and put in motorcycle specific antifreeze if needed.

I hope you have a jack... I had to remove the pipes and bags on my 04 vulcan nomad so I remove the cotter pin and pull the axle out of the rear hub. Then removed the spcer and rear brake. slide wheel assy. out of the drive hud on the left (removal of brake and spacer allow this) and drop the tire down. It's not hard...
