Re: clutch toast?

Dontcha think it would be a good idea to put in a can of seafoam and ride it a bit before you change it to help flush out the "bad" oil stuff??? ;) posting.php?mode=reply&f=5&t=40312#

Re: LED "bullet" lights

WOW ! Thanks, just what I was looking for. Haven't done it yet but it is now on my "to do" list. It amuses me that some driving light "makers" sold in the US want you to think that they have designed and made them when the lights are made to their specs in China. The "bullet" lights ARE cheap but no...

Re: LED "bullet" lights

Lights are Chinese made ( language barrier here) and are working as supposed to. They are EXTREMELY bright and super focused. The modes of operation are preset. I was just wondering if someone has ever tried to reverse engineer them.

progressive rear springs

I'm a rider that likes a soft comfy ride and I wonder what the progressive rear springs would do for my 1200? I'm not interested in handling performance that makes it a roadburner though. Any experience out there?

LED "bullet" lights

Got a pair of those bullet style LED driving lights that have a magnifying lens that make the light more intense. A great daytime running light that cars actually notice. BUT I have an issue with them and maybe someone can help. These lights have 3 positions........steady bright, lower bright, pulsi...

unusual(?) noise in rear

Took off some Dunlops and put on new Michelin Commander tires. Never paid any attention to the old tires but I have noticed a very slight whine when leaning left or right of center. You guys with Michelins, have you noticed any kind of noises? I'm hoping that it's not the beginning of rear bearing p...

Re: GL1200 LTD - Electrical gremlin

There is a lot of great info on this forum. Not knowing all of the info about your problem it sounds like you have a correctly functioning system. (guys step in here if I'm off base) The stator is putting out 100% of it's power 100% of the time and the regulator WILL get hot. Now if it's putting out...

Re: 1987 Aspencade Tripmeter

First thing that comes to mind is a poor or intermittent electrical connection. I would get some Deoxit electrical contact cleaner and systematically inspect and clean EVERY plug and pin connector with this solution. Might try to take a look at the electrical condition at the wheel device too.

Re: Stator Questions

USUALLY stators fail because of being overloaded electrically by farkles and/or such other nonsense (think Christmas tree lites) or by a poor connection at the 3 wire plug. Moral: don't overdo it by excessively overloading and remove the plug and solder and insulate the 3 yellow wires. For further p...

Considering the scarceness of OEM brake discs and the wear of some brake pads, what are you using that works well for you?

The hazard flasher uses a mini 3 pin in line plug. I may have to resort to making my own.........darn it.

I am looking for a male plug for the hazard flasher on a '84 Aspy. It is attached to the harness and plugs into the flasher.

Re: Windscreen

Looks great!!! I wish I had the nerve to do the same. I trashed a tall one that came with my bike by not holding it firm enough while cutting and cracked it. I DO NOT like the tall windshields at all. I want to see over and not thru.

Re: Finding a Small volt meter

I have one similar to that. It works well but one thing I don't like about is that sunlight washes it out. Would be better if it was a LCD with backlighting.
