If you're doing a valve check, you have no choice but to drain the coolant and put new stuff in.... "flush" really not necessary...

Brake pad check, front and rear. Swap around to even out wear.

Brake caliper clean and lube, front and rear. Pins too. If the calipers aren't sticking or leaking, do NOT rebuild.

Kick stand/shifter/brake pedal clean & lube.

Left & right levers clean & lube. Don't forget to clean/inspect/lube the clutch lever bushing.

Wind shield guides clean & lube if sticky.

Mirror pivots clean & lube if sticky.

ABS actuation via test port.

Horn replacement with PIAA dual tone horns.

The spider recall only addressed S4, but there are more spiders that had issues....
if you do a search on ground spiders, there are several threads.

I plan on doing many of these during my winter off season as well...but wonder if any of these maintenance tasks are not required on my 05 FJR Gen 1? (Ground Spider, etc.)
