Re: REAR MASTER CYLINDER PISTON FROZEN

Grease gun usually works and you might try pushing the cups in using a "C" clamp..just a little to break them free then try again pushing them out..with air/grease..back on the bike with the brake lever..

Well I am electrically challenged most of the time..but to answer your original question.. Take the bike for a short ride to charge the battery back up after you started it..now at idle (750-950 rpm's) it should show about 12.5V's at the battery..now rev up the engine to 3,000 rpm's the V's should j...

Re: Air ride

Release all air..then refill with bike upright..hand on the seat..note air pressure when seat starts to move up..tha's your bottom pressure..the systems don't always read the same bike to bike..now you can adjust to your comfort level.I'd start at 50 lbs. and adjust from there.

Re: GL1100 Oil pickup strainer cover.

some loosen the frame bolts at the bottom and spread the frame a bit with a long pry bar or wedge it open a bit with wood shims..safer way to do it.

Re: Oil filter confusion

The 1500's use a screw on like that second one and lots of small cars. I think Honda still sells the correct filter...cartridge type. Or Randakks sells an adapter so you can use screw-ons with the 1000's or 1100's..many like the convenience

It;s not plastic it's ABS..use ABS cement to repair and ABS "plastic" to reinforce..the black plumbing pipe is ABS, you can buy sheets of ABs on line; and that's the cement you should use black ABS
