Hey everyone, just an update on the flavor issue.
I ran oxyclean through the line yesterday and let it sit for an hour. Still had a weird cherry flavor in the coke. As a last resort I pulled the syrup pump out of the line and opened it up. It smelled heavily like the aftertaste I've been getting, so I soaked some of the parts in LLC overnight.

There was still some smell this morning so I swapped in a different syrup pump and now the flavor is completely gone. I guess the rubber membranes inside the pumps really soaked in the flavoring when the system wasn't in use for a year.

Thanks for everyone's suggestions. They'll definitely help me clean this thing with ease in the future.
