Re: Reverse

If I am mistaken done please correct me. But I think the reverse lever operates Yet Another microswitch under the engine cover. Similar to the ones on the clutch and Brake levers. It could be stuck, dirty or bad.

Re: Reverse

If the starter button works for starter then it shouldn't be the button right?

97SE Cooling System Question

Working through things that can leave me on the side of the road on a new to me 97SE to get it road ready by spring. Checking off the major items suggested on various threads. My question, since this is my first bike with a radiator, where this should be in priority. What happens if the water pump o...

97SE Turn Signal...how does it know?

18 year old technology and it knows when I am changing lanes, making a turn or sitting at a light. I'm just curious, how does it know?

Re: engine surges

I have a 97 SE that was doing the surging thing. Following the suggestion on another thread I lubricated the idle adjust knob/cable and then cycled it several times from stop to stop and then set it at about 800. It cured mine. Your mileage may vary of course but it's worth a try. I did run a can of...

Dark Side Mounting Options 1500

Once I have the tire in my possession, Can an automotive tire store mount it or would I have to have a bike shop do it.

Re: 97SE...Is it just ME?

I pumped up the tires this weekend and rode about 200 miles. It did handle better overall. The slow speed "wondering" was better but not totally eliminated so it must be a tire issue. I only notice it after a cruise of 30 minutes or so. (I am assuming to heat the tires up?) For instance, when I star...

Re: 97SE...Is it just ME?

Okay my theory now is that it's the tires. Under inflated on a big bike, big boy and i have only noticed it after a cruise at hwy speed long enough to heat up the tires. Maybe they get a little softer when they are warmed up and that is what I am noticing?
Worth exploring anyway.

Re: 97SE...Is it just ME?

Awesome info to know! Thanks guys I will pump them up some tomorrow. It had Dunlops on it when I got it a few weeks ago. They are still good for several more thousand miles. They are about 4 years of calendar time though.

97SE...Is it just ME?

The prevailing wind, or is something else going on with my 97 SE? I am a very experienced rider but new to the Wing and lately I mostly ridden around town and never notice this on a short ride running errands, etc. But, after being on the highway at highway speed for a while and then slow down, I ha...
