Re: Best Oil

I can buy full synthetic for around $6/litre when it goes on sale. I use Shell Rotella T6. I have never seen Castrol motorcycle oil go on sale and find it expensive but it is a decent oil.

For rear diff I use a 75W-90 synthetic gear oil from Crappy Tire.

Re: Engine Coolant

Honda car coolant is fine to use. I see you are in Canada. This will work just fine.

Re: My bike is in the shop

Good catch guys. Your shop, @UncleFester, is not using the correct grease. I think this happens a lot, even in a dealership. Here's a picture from the help section of what the Moly grease looks like.

I loved my 2000 SE. Still wish I had it some days. The new owner stops by my place and teases me occasionally.

If you have a good mechanic it may be easier to take him along, :D :D . Gas is getting too expensive in BC anyway.

Re: AZ to Sturgis?

Go for it. If the bikes in good shape there is no reason it won’t make it. If you are worried about heat I would suggest getting a cooling vest and a vented jacket. A MasterCard will take care of just about any problem. Enjoy the Sturgis shenanigans. Love the area but definitely avoid it during bike...

Re: USB thumb drive music

When I had my Goldwing 1500 I had one of these wired up in the right side cubby hole. I never took it out just switched the SD cards now and then but it would also play a thumb drive or you can plug a phone or iPod into it. I never used the remote as it wouldn't transmit to the modulator when it was...

Re: Decided to retire my wing

Looks like a nice ride Dusty. Coincidentally since selling my Wing a bit ago the Cross Country Tour has made it to the top as a Wing replacement consideration. Not too many for sale around here for the price I want to pay.

I had a similar issue with my bike. Eventually it left me stranded with a dead battery. Got a boost and was able to ride it home. As hugger-4641 described I found that one of my alternator brushes was hanging up and only making contact occasionally. Cleaned that all up and the alternator was golden ...

That's what I was afraid of when I asked the question. As was pointed out read the thread about those tires. Seems like maybe legal action is required to get Metzler to address the problem.

Any chance you can put up a picture of the tire?

Re: Goodbye Fellow Wingers

Oldbear - I noticed your avatar. Are you planning on doing the Cannonball 500? I'm thinking I will do one of the Cannonball rides this fall. It would have been a lot more comfortable on the Wing instead of my KLR 650.

Re: Installing new shifter brace

When I installed my shifter brace I just had the bike on the centre stand. I do have a bike lift but figured it would just be in the way. A platform lift would have made it a little more comfortable to do.
