Inspecting and cleaning the Harley radiator on your Hog is very easy, however, often overlooked.

To access the Harley radiator, remove the grill panels from the lower fairings. It is quick and easy to remove the panels but it is important to use a non-marring tool in order to remove without damaging any surface areas. Carefully pry on the panel’s curved edge to release the latches and remove from the fascia. The Harley radiator fins can then be cleaned with a soft bristle brush or compressed air on a low pressure setting.

At higher mileage service intervals, the radiator coolant will need to be replaced.
