Re: Strange electrical problem

Had the same problem with a 76 LTD. It was the push button that made the starter work. It would stick between on/off. Took it apart and cleaned it.

Re: carb removal

I have found it easier to remove the intake manifolds, then when you can move the set to the left remove the tops of the right side carbs. If you want more room remove the engine guard on the left side also. Pulled a lot of them on 1000s, 1100s and 1200s, Just my 2 cents worth.

When I hit any size bump, pot whole or any thing that moves the front forks there is a loud knocking noise coming from either the forks or the fairing.

When I run over small pot holes or small holes in the yard there is a loud knocking noise in the front around the faring. I have checked all the mounting bolts and nuts. Checked the bolts on the triple clamps. ch...

Re: And now the rest of story

Sorry you had so much bad luck on your trip. My dad used to say if he didn't have any bad luck he wouldn't have any luck at all. About the wife being happy, down here in Mississippi we have a saying for that, if mama ain't happy, no body is happy and if grandma ain't happy, RUN RUN.

Re: Mirrors?

I have tried moving the glass and also the housing. Nothing moves. Now that I have the new ones, I will take one of the old ones apart and discover how to adjust it. If any one else has any ideas let me know. When I take the old apart I will post how it's done.
Thanks

Mirrors?

Does any one know how to adjust the mirrors on a 1200 interstate. Mine are froze in place, I did not think much about this as the bike sat up over a year. I ordered 2 new ones and I cannot figure how to adjust them. They seem like they are froze up also. HELP!!!

I am so glad I found this GL site. I have been having problems with #4 carb. The pictures will help a lot. I have been wondering what the third post was for. I am just about ready to install a single carb on this thing.
Thanks again for the pictures. Maybe I can get it fixed now.
