I'd like to continue with this topic. My bike seems to be running ok at idle but when I give it some throttle it speeds up RPM's but is very hesitant on going back down to the set idle speed.

Re: GL1100 alternator conversion (how I did mine)

Hi, I did the conversion on my bike, but am having problems with the bike running very hot, the fan comes on but the bike won't cool down. I put new antifreeze and no leaks, what do you think could be the problem?

Air Shocks

First off my onboard compressor does nothing when you hit the buttons, but I would like to know if there is a way to put air in the rear shocks because my indicator light is coming on when I am riding?
