Re: Polar Vest Phase Change Cooling Vest

I start melting when the temp and humidity gets above 70°, so I bought one of these Phase Change vests last summer for my annual leave SoCal for New England rides, which any direction off the west coastline puts you into desert heat of 105°-120°+ temps.(all the way to Washington once you head inland...

Re: FS Front Fender 1800

I am interested in the front part of the fender for a 2002 Illusion Red Gold Wing 1800. Can you send a picture of it? The advertisement indicates that it is new, so it should be safe to assume that it has no flaws. Can you confirm that? Where are you located? The ad indicated a price of $100.00. Do...

Strip the wires further down, you didn't get to the breakage area at the hinge, under the rubber holder area you removed. That is the area that wires break for the dash display/alarm horn also.

Re: What should I watch out for?

Congrats Dean on your purchase, taken care of it should outlast you. All good responses above. As to the belts, as said, looking at belts is not a reliable decision. They can look brand new at 40 years old, yet the hardened rubber doesn't show the weakness and likelihood of breakage which is a bad t...

Re: 2014 gl1800 remote trunk release not working

Yes. The loops on the lid that go into the latch are out of shape or missing a/or a loose screw. The screw holes(plastic) sometimes get broken, usually overstuffing the trunk/bags and forcing the lids closed. If the loop is bent or worn, replace them. Speaking of the trunks. My 05 is showing on the ...

Mike, I know you sold the tanks, but did you have an OEM part number for the tanks? These are rather difficult to locate. Thank you.

Re: Teardrop Trailer

Not sure if any are made specifically for our bikes but you could probably find something close at a trailer supply store.

Re: Teardrop Trailer

Depending on your bike, gl1500 and gl1800 will be able to pull it, 275 lbs is the wood plus the trailer frame which will put total up above 500 lbs, though I would suggest some extended mirrors at the full width they are with queen mattress width they are designed with. I like that clcboats trailer,...

Re: Teardrop Trailer

This is a CLC kit teardrop out of Maryland.
I thought I'd make a narrow one for me as I don't need a queen size as they come. Probably make my own plans or get their plans and modify them for a narrower unit.

Re: Highway "pegs"

Mic-O-Pegs for me too. No more leg cramps trying to flip up the kury pegs to ride the corners. They spring back up out of the way when you take your foot off.
kuryjunkan has now made some that spring up, but their chrome is still junk and with only a 1 yr warranty. I won't buy anything kury again.
