That’s worth a lot! Thanks for the info!
You're welcome. Mine happened to coincidentally fail when I took it to the dealer to have the timing chain tensioner recall done. While waiting for the engine to cool off, I saw the puddle of coolant under the bike. The tech verified the failure and suggested I not ride the bike. He didn't think the issue would get worse but he doesn't know for sure. Particularly where he said there's a chance oil and coolant can mix together with this failure.

At that point, I decided to just leave my bike there even though I didn't plan on doing so. I was expecting to get the recall done and then riding the bike back home. Fortunately, the dealer gave me a loaner bike to get home.

So I would strongly consider getting that pickup service.

FYI. Mine included a full drain and refill of coolant and new exhaust manifold gaskets on top of the oil/oil filter change. I also have Akra SS headers which didn't affect any part of the repair. Actually, having done the header install myself, it would have actually helped in making the job easier.
