Re: The idiots are out there

Round-a-bouts in America CAN BE a good update to our ever growing traffic but there's a 2fold problem. ROAD RAGE. Get that understood why it happens...nuff said. Yes, we all have stories, not now...too many. But ultimately, the blame lays squarely on our judges shoulders. EDUCATION. For some really ...

Re: Headlight Upgrade

'What I was saying' , I left it up to you to decide, I merely offered up my info. I found near free halogens, that so far, lasted 3 years. BUUuuut I want more light..(we darn, ever unsettled humans). So I now have Leds. Since Aug. 5, not one vehicle has pulled out in front of me where it was severa...

Re: Headlight Upgrade

On my '78 GL1000 I have a standard H4 halogen headlight. I'd like to upgrade a little bit to a Sylvania Silverstar Ultra. I've got no interest in LED or HID conversions. I just want a reasonable improvement over the H4 lamp, and I see that some of you mention having Silverstars. I have some questio...

MAG . . . Touché

DAVE: My dad did something similar.
On the 7th LEFT TURN ONLY, I had to ask a similar thing. Dad said he's just following the road signs.
Shrewd he was, made me aware of street signs ever since. ;)

Re: Electric brakes on my trailer

Extra tires on the road that are braking always helps.

Early 80's I installed trailer brakes on mine, behind my 1977 XS1100.
So comforting to know the trailer is pulling you to a stop. In essence, it's clothe-lining you from jack-knifing.

HAPPY HAULING

Re: The idiots are out there

This isn't 'as per title' but sorta fits. Today, late afternoon, in local rush-hour traffic it's drizzling so roads are wet but not running water wet. 3 lanes going in one direction and I'm in the far right lane. IF anything happens I prefer tumbling on grass than concrete. So we're all running aro...

Re: inconsistent battery voltage.

Ya, I know it's a Saturn Alt. but didn't know if the regulator is the same. I'd hate to keep overcharging the battery since its smaller in size. My other point is, I LOATH the word 'proprietary', it begets mfg's inflated greedy prices. IF mfg's sold their parts at reasonable prices they would make m...

Re: inconsistent battery voltage.

Nothing else running, in fact when it happens I turn on and off high draw items, but it stays consistent readings. That's also what tells me it's the regulator.

Re: inconsistent battery voltage.

Reg. is inside, has a suspicion it was there. It's DEF. not the brushes. Wires were good and connections cleaned. In my scenario the voltage never went to "not charging", just went a low charge voltage. OH!!! Just remembered. Before I installed new brushes, it had the same lower voltage symptom. . A...

inconsistent battery voltage.

SOOooo I'm riding along, motor is well warmed up by at least 45 minutes, I notice the digital voltage meter has dropped to 12.8 volts at 600 Rpm idle. Most of you would say that's normal but since I changed to LED headlights that isn't the case anymore. After installing those lights 14.2 volts was c...

Re: Since it's Halloween month...

I've never been privy to autism so I'm a bit green other than its definition.
Can autism be understood as misplaced or displaced reality?
If so, that can be corrected.

Sad thing is, the way this PC krap is going, when it's unearthed they'll come for you. New owners will claim "undue mental hardship" or something really Liberally weird like that. :(

Re: Darkside Tech: Using Car Tires on a Motorcycle Rim

The tires on my 1500 are about done, and I think I'm going to give an Austone Taxi tire a try for the rear this time. If I don't like it, I'll pull it off and go back to my beloved Avons. *IF* you're more of a sport rider you might not like it. Tho it gives more lean clearance the slight Off-Tracki...

Re: Darkside Tech: Using Car Tires on a Motorcycle Rim

After doing a LOT of soul searching, I think that for my big Alaska trip next year I’m running a RFT on the rear (I can only find a Goodyear in the size I need), and a tubed A/T on the front. The front rim I’ll be changing when I get to the Dalton Highway, but the RFT I’ll run the whole way. I am d...
