Just wondering why it takes so long for the heater to warm up especially when it is very, very cold out. Just never seems to reach its optimum. As temps go up outside so does the warmth of the heat blowing on the inside. Maybe this is normal??.

One major issue if you have a Vulcan OHV engine is rust scale in the heater core. You can feel the short hoses leading to and from heater core. If they are the same temperature then your core is ok. Also if the heat is hotter while engine RPMs are high and low at idle then your core is partially plugged. You need to do a flush just on the coe while crimping the bypass hose.. The only way to effectively clean the core of crud.. Pic of crud from a recent flush of core.

Amazing. HL can create water out of clear air, and engine can make sand out of water.
