It's a 2008 with 7,900 miles. KBB was around $4600, dealer was asking 3850, I got him down to 3050. Got a factory set of forwards for about 175. Hopefully that should get her good enough to ride...

Finally figured it out. It's one of the heat shields on the brake side. Apparently I'm missing one of the little C-clamp things that the shield bolts to. I can put my foot against it when it...

Ok, got the coolant filled back. Pulled the wire off and grounded it - the fan came on. It had some corrosion on it, so I'm hoping that problem was just because of that corrosion.
