Since I have the rad and belt covers off I will be replacing the timing belts. Are there any issues with the water pump that I should investigate?

Anything else up front while it's apart?

Check for free play in the water pump. If you can move the impeller side to side or in & out at all you should replace it. If that's OK and it hasn't been leaking out the weep hole, I'd leave it well enough alone.

While you have the rad out I'd get it professional cleaned. Cost me about $ 28.00 where I live. Also replace rad hoses. You can check the bikes fan & thermo switch to see if they are working properly. The fan thermo switch on all the early wings are getting up there in years and are a common failure.

I would check the belt tensioners. You don't say the mileage on the bike but these do start making noises.

Do a search on this and the naked wing site for lots of good info on getting these bikes ship shape.
