I just got back from rocky point, mexico and while down there I did some riding on the beach. I was wondering if there was anything I needed to do to my bike since salt water got on it. I haven't noticed anything but some discolorization to the header pipe. I will regrease every thing this week but I wasn't sure about gaskets or seals. And one other thing what bolts need lock-tight and what bolts should I put anti-sieze on?

Definitely put Anti sieze on all Titanium bolts and on any bolts that would probably get real hot such as those on the exhaust. As for Lock tight, the owner's manual ID's those.
