Check hoses and any external coolant-lines and fittings thoroughly before ripping-into the engine. You might save yourself a ton of time and frustration.

Other than that, I got no real advice, as I don't know jack about the V-Rod.

Good Luck.

Wash the engine off and dry it. Then start the engine and watch carefully to see where it leaks. You might save yourself a ton of trouble.
