Factory service manual and 18 DVD's $200!

I have the MASSIVE, Honda Factory Service manual, from Honda Corp., comes in a ring bound book for the GL1800, 2006-2008. There is nothing this manual does not cover! Plus the $128, 16 DVD set from Fred Harmon, and another two DVD service video set. These are the items that helped me diagnose issues...

Re: Only starts in neutral..and other symptoms

All the problems were caused by the clutch switch. Under $25, two minutes to swap it out... thankfully.

Re: Only starts in neutral..and other symptoms

Interesting in the process of ordering parts, the first questions the parts guy asked was did the cruise control work. Never really thought about it as I don't use it much... last I recall, it did not. There was just too much going on to worry about it at the time. However, if my first attempts to c...

Re: Only starts in neutral..and other symptoms

Greatly appreciate all the detailed info and pics! As per the fuel mapping chip, that was indeed the issue as the rpms were dropping below 500, which at idle then made the lights dim. I am 100% sure on that one. Of the many hours I spent looking for an answer to that one, I only found one other pers...

Re: Only starts in neutral..and other symptoms

Heal Tech support says the indicator has to be reset, they did not suggest why that happened. They also feel the other issues are not related and suggested their OBD diagnostic tool, for $300. I will start with the side stand and clutch switches, rest the indicator and call with the cold idle issue ...

Only starts in neutral..and other symptoms

Bike has 27k, 06 1800, just started having erratic cold start fluctuating between 1000-2000 rpms, which lasts for about three miles of driving. Then it is normal. The rpms are all over the place. Ambient temps between 70-80 degrees. Last time I had any idle issues it was the fuel mapping chip which ...

Re: wind shield air buffeting

After some very expensive shield buying, the winner was the F4 +4" vented. Very pleased! I ordered ours through wingstuff and was able to have the tall shield cut so it could be lowered the 4". You won't see that option on the web site and they may even tell you they don't cut the shields. It can be...

Re: New noise under meter cover?

Are there metal spring clips inside the meter panel?

If so, a broken clip would make the kind of noise I am hearing.

New noise under meter cover?

I had the bike in for warranty to fix the seat and grip heaters not working. I have to assume in the process, the meter cover over the ignition was removed for testing, which houses the two heater controls. I would have talked to the tech that did the work, but he has since left. My question to anyo...

Re: Transmition trouble

We have an 06 and it had problems with the tranny from the test drive, getting worse the more I rode it. That was at 7k miles. It popped out of 5th and back in on the first ride. Then, it started jumping out of third as well. The local dealer insisted there was nothing wrong with it. After nearly 30...

The one time I use the heaters for the year, they went on, shut the bike off for a minute, then they did not work. An hour later they worked. Went in for warranty in July. Turn...

Re: Gas milage

Six months ago I posted we were getting 41. Without having put a 1k miles on since and having tested the last three fill ups, we are getting 39.25 tops. The 41 was a solid number and I check the mileage nearly every fill up. The bike just rolled over 24k miles, so it has nothing to do with much of a...

I run into the same problem with MD's and they really don't listen. If they did, I would have been prescribed the meds while in the ER.

My 4 yrs of warranty experience

Worth passing on to those who may use the Honda USA warranty. I can't tell you how disappointed I have been with local Honda dealers telling me they could not duplicate the problem the bike was brought in for. One has to wonder just how hard did they try? I took the bike to the local dealer at least...
