Re: Timing Belts

Is there any danger of a rear wheel lockup from a timing belt failure? Or just engine damage? I have a low value bike, not worth spending the money to replace the timing belt. I don't mind if the engine is damaged/destroyed, but I would hate to get thrown on my butt or worse. I cannot seem to find ...

Re: Missing headlight switch ?

Don't ask me why, 'I DON'T KNOW' but, I have put white LEDs behind red lenses and they look pretty good but when I put the exact same LED in red color much more light comes through. It is much brighter. Bulbs are different as they are bright no matter about the color of the lens. Go ahead, try for ...

Re: GL1500 mounting a new rear tire

I'm on my second (or is third?I forget) set of Avons on my GL1500. I run my front at 41 psi and my rear at 47 psi, cold. Good luck getting that tire on the rim by hand. I struggle to do it with a pneumatic tire-mounting machine! 47 psi is a bit I would think. Doesn't the 180/60R16 Avon Cobra tire i...

Re: Adding an Aux input to the GL1500 radio

Great thread, an oldie but a goodie. I'm wondering if this will work for my '94 GL1500 Aspencade? What are the chances that the circuit board layout will have been changed? I don't want to remove the radio unit only to discover that the mentioned solder points have changed. Thanks, Andy I think the...

Any experience out there? In theory, they should be a bit softer, because there are parts of the spring that ha...

Re: milky colored oil

Is your coolant level going down? Sure sounds like you've still got coolant getting into the crankcase. If you've properly done the head gaskets, and you're losing coolant into the crankcase, you've got a couple potential causes: - failed seals in water pump. Normally the seals prevent the coolant f...

Do you have to turn the key off then back on to get it to start.?
Bank angle sensor bad?
This is the most important question.

When it dies, can you hit the starter button and the engine cranks? If not, if you switch the ignition off and back on, does it "fix" the problem?

By the way, those relays do not fail very frequently. I've had two GL1500's, a '99 and a '98, with over 160,000 miles on them and have never experienced a relay failure. Perhaps I've been lucky but the relays usually are quite bulletproof when installed correctly. Its that loose contact to the rela...

What file formats are supported. I've tried jpg, gif, and jpeg and they all say invalid file types. Also what size should the image be?
JPG, GIF and PNG are supported. It can be any size (it will scale it down to fit) but try not to send 20 MB files to the site! :)
