Re: recommendations for replacement windshield

Another vote for F4 ....... F4 is hard coated Lexan .... GE MR-10, flexible so it handles impacts well. Love mine on the trike (1500). Easy to clean too, I did trim mine a bit on top and sides and added a good 1800 vent. Used some adhesive backed matt black vinyl. I was given a scratched vented Tul...

Re: Seized Swingarm Nut on Driveshaft side

Unfortunately the u-joint will not come out through the swingarm on the '85 LTD - tried it, does not work. I know that's the case with 1500s but for that to be so on a 85 LTd... means that they used a different U-joint or swingarm than the other 1200s that year .... I wonder why they did so? Under ...

Re: Seized Swingarm Nut on Driveshaft side

Have you tried taking it out through the driveshaft tube? I've had the front U-joint out of my '85 GL1200 Aspencade a few times .... and I have never removed the swing arm or messed with the swing arm adjustment, I just check it for any perceptible play, never found any yet. Once the final drive was...

The GL1200 has a dual purpous antenna with a splitter so as to use with both the radio and the CB.

Re: Front fork springs

Try different weight fork oils. Start with 15 wgt and then go up to 20 or down to 10 wgt depending on results. Also, makes it easier to play with / change fork oils if the caps are drilled & tapped for plugs. I run Progressive spring in my '85 Aspencade with 15wgt Belray fork oil, very nice ride. Mu...
