Re: Front wheel bearing removal

I went and used the bolt mod to take out mine. Cut down through the middle of the bolt, drove a wedge into the bolt and proceeded to remove the bearing. From all accounts should have popped the bearing out with no problem. Did not happen as mentioned in the threads. I literally destroyed the old bea...

Re: 1986 gl1200 Aspencade question

Nice install. Noticed that the paint had crinkled in the one area you used heat. May be able to sand this down and paint if you can find a very close colour in a can.

Nice second bike as well. Always need a second one on standby just in case.

Cheers

Re: why just Progressive fork springs

I have Traxxion suspension in my 1800 and it a great system. IMHO I would rate front best to least: Traxxion - Race Tech - Progressive - OEM. For the rear you can even contemplate going with progressive non-air shocks. I have them on my '85 LTD that weighs in at 925 lbs. Have these set at almost the...

Re: 85 LE starter clutch

If the starter is doing its job and the starter clutch is not keeping the starter engaged, I would not take off the starter - lots of work for very little return at this time. If the starter were spinning without engaging you would know that the starter clutch will require attention eventually. As t...

To tape up your new wire harness, instead of plastic tape a fellow over on the CX500-650 forum used Tesa Black High Heat Wire Loom Harness Tape. More of a cloth and anti abrasion tape.

Re: 86 SEi, gas in oil.

Interesting, just about everything I did. Sounds like the coils. Did you check the coil primary resistance - 300 ohms. You will have to remove the coils to check. A drop of 30-60 ohms on the primary when cold will result in a further drop when at operating temp. Secondary resistance through the plug...

If the bikes has been sitting for a while you may want to clean the clutch slave as well. Only needs a couple of parts. Lots of crud collects in it.

Find this as a topic every now and then. Most people shy away from these 2 bikes specifically because of the fuel injection, and parts availability for this system. There are quite a few of these models out there on the road and giving good service, and this should give an indication that these two ...

Probably is because the '87s are not FI bikes - don't know for sure. Send me a PM with email and I can send a PDF copy of the '85 - use wetransfer for large files.

Just wondering if these relays might be usable on an 85 GL1200L. I think I have a bad relay and need something that could work.
Thank you for your assistance.
Asked the same question - and did a post regarding. The relays are still available from Honda for your bike. Cheers
