Re: Tire changer that WORKS!

Not me, I usually take a grinder or cutting tool and cut around the rim removing the rims lip, then I slip the tire off with out any fuss :shock: place the new one in and JB weld it closed...works good.... :lol: I must have been watching your YouTube videos because that's exactly how I do it.

Re: GL1500 Heated Seat

I think this can easily be done but the best idea would be to actually by a seat heater kit. You can get them for a motorcycle here: https://www.heatedseatkits.com/heatedseatkits/motorcycleseatheater/index.html This link apparently is no more and is not private. I wouldn’t use it. Good advice but t...

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.

Re: Alternator Indicator

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.

Re: Goodbye Fellow Wingers

So we have an update. We found a very nice condition Mazda Miata Anniversary edition. One of only 150 that were sold in Canada in 1999 and only 7500 worldwide. We love the thing. All the joy of being out in the open without the helmet.

Re: Opinions on riding gear

I like the nylon stuff myself. On the Wing I used a mesh jacket and pants. Was able to keep a little cooler wearing that. My wife wore non-vented nylon gear.

Re: How hot does it have to be before you won't ride?

I've found this to be a very good article explaining how the body reacts to heat. When you think it's time to take off gear it's actually time to keep it on.

Goodbye Fellow Wingers

It was with a heavy heart that today I parted with my pristine 2000 GL1500. We've talked about selling for awhile and listed it with a high price to see if we would get any takers. First person that came and looked at it bought it. They got a beautiful bike and one that will serve him well for many ...

Went to another dealer and they ordered it no problem. I then bought a tire and had them install it too. It's surprisin...

Re: How to safely test a portable battery jumper

Local trike shop was demoing portable chargers. They disconnected the battery and started the bike numerous times just from the portable jumper unit. Sold a bunch but the mystery is whether the demo unit worked the next day.
