Re: My whirlwind trip to Florida

Scott, Your Dad did a wonderful job, He will remember that day as a cherished memory for the rest of his life. I especially like the hot approach and 360 for landing. Most people would have lost it right there, but John squeaked it in like he had been flying Mustangs for years. A JOB WELL DONE :D

Re: How to install the GL1500 shifter brace

Thanks for the How To especially the pictures and step by step. I should receive mine today and will install it
this weekend. Did you replace your shifter oil seal, if so a How To with pics would be great.

Will let you know the outcome of how long it takes the OLD MAN to do the install. :)

Re: CLUTCH, TRANSMISSION PROBLEM ?

My only response to which oil, is there are a million different answers
But for the ole man here,,, HONDA Oil is not that more expensive and
the 10W-40 is what most people run. I run the 20W-50 being in the HOT SOUTH.

Just my opinion, everyone has their own

The transmission, clutch and engine all share the same oil and only 1 dip stick. How is the feel of the lever? Is there resistance? Soft feeling? How is the fluid level in the clutch reservoir? What type of engine oil are you using, it must be specific for a 'Wet Clutch'? Oil is checked daily, alway...
