Help Setting the clock on my 1500

I have a 94 1500 Interstate and can't figure out how to set the clock so I know when I have to go home :lol: does anyone have the same radio? You have to push in the volume knob to see the clock. I've tried holding it down to get the time to flash but it doesn't I've tried everything I could think o...

Re: Question for the dark siders

Thanks guys! So what's your opinion on mounting the front tire reversed? I've read some do and some don't.

Re: Question for the dark siders

Good to know! I'll probably go with the Austone taxi. Yes theirs a small Mc shop in town that said they will mount it "No paperwork" so I'm good there. Thanks for all the help! Any other tips or suggestions are appreciated!

Re: Question for the dark siders

Thanks for the info RoadRoague. What's your opinion on the run flat tires? I've read a lot of people are running them. That's kind of why I was going with the drive guard for the back. Unless theirs a reason you don't run them. Just personal preference or other reasons? Thanks!

Question for the dark siders

I know this is a controversial subject but I've been reading and reading. But the more I read the more confusing my choice of tires gets. This is my first time going dark side and want some opinions on my selection for my 94 1500 interstate. Back tire is a drive guard 195/55/16 And front is the batt...

Re: Using iPhone gps app through the speakers anyone?

Thanks for all the replies! The Bluetooth thing sounds good but I don't have a cassette player. Is there some other Bluetooth device that I could use?

Using iPhone gps app through the speakers anyone?

Would like to use my iPhone gps app when going on long rides. But want it to cut the music for verbal directions. I have a jack that I can plug my phone into but the radio has to be on auxiliary to hear it. Any way to do this?? Thanks ;)

Re: Reeses peanut butter in clutch reservoir

I highly recommend getting a 1 person vacuum bleeding apparatus. Makes it that much easier. I've never owned one until I got my wing. I first bought a cheep plastic one that didn't work so I took it back and bought the all metal one. About $60.00 at advance auto. It made the job so much easier. I ac...

Re: Reeses peanut butter in clutch reservoir

I just recently got a 94 Interstate. My clutch and brake master cylinder looked like that also. Not quite that bad, I cleaned them out with brake cleaner and flushed the system with clean brake fluid till it came out clear. Clutch and brake are working fine. Only thing is the sight glass in both mas...

Re: Pennsylvania trip this weekend

Kinda strange! But when we pulled into the parking lot and parked our bikes, my buddy said my headlight was not on. So I started investigating it when we realized his headlight wasn't working either. Really? Both bikes at the same time?

Re: 94 GL1500 radio speaker outputs

Tomorrow I am going to replace the front speakers so all 4 will be 4 ohm speakers and installing a 800watt amp. That is if it is delivered tomorrow. I'm not looking for loud just a good sound. The factory setup sounds terrible! IMO!
