1984 Interstate Extreme Basket case

Was allowed to view an '84 Interstate (confirmed by viewing the OEM tally plate on the steering stem) basket case this that will be coming up for bids – a repossession by a local Bailiff friend of mine. It is strapped onto a small roll pallet and is in a state of tear down such that I could not find...

Big Blue Motorcycle Lift

Was at the Toronto International Motorcycle Show this past January with the son-in-law. I bought a Big Blue Motorcycle lift. It was a toss up between a GPS or this lift, and you know now which won. Put my Xmas gift to myself together this past weekend. The lift is marketed as the safest lift going. ...

I also read in the manual that the fork oil drain bolt at the bottom actually DOES require a thread sealant and that the sealant I found on mine was supposed to be there...not just a band-aid type fix for a bad slider or worn gasket. The shop manual calls out loctite lock n seal, but I only have th...

Re: New To Me - Second 1985 Limited - New Project

The new RR could be installed under either saddlebag just above the exhaust pipes. The exhaust pipes would provide good protection for...

Re: Questions regarding "older" men and Goldwings

Not inexpensive, but less expensive than a trike or trike conversion. Videos are excellent and the manual for the 1500 is quite good.

The 7.5 amp fuse powers the travel computer, radio, voltmeter, instrument panel and trunk light switch. First go around more to follow.

Re: Stator preventative replacement.Worth it?

The three piece alternator assembly (rotor-stator-regulator/rectifier) on motorcycles are good until one of the components fail. Unfortunately if the rotor/stator assembly ceases to produce the required power, generally requires an engine removal. If it is good, I'd leave it alone. People drive cars...

Re: Electrical issue

Will start to look at the schematics. So the fuse in question is #5. Agree with a short being at issue, but now to find it. Generally not a problem with the item, the wiring yes. Start in the left front fairing pocket. Good place to start because wiring for the front fairing goes through this space....

Re: Electrical issue

Exactly which fuse is failing - 4, 5 or 6? Trying to get a few thoughts together. If the fuse is failing, and you believe there is a short - what else can it be - I would be taking the wiring harness apart from the fuse block forward. Honda joined a lot of wires together - power and ground - and onl...

Re: tps and throttle stop screw 1200 limited fi

That's exactly what I had to do as well. Now that you mention it, there is no reference to the initial setup with regards to RPM, balancing of the cylinder banks as this affects where the throttle linkage is positioned. I've adjusted mine, but still get too much fuel on a cold start. There's a fello...

Re: tps and throttle stop screw 1200 limited fi

The throttle adjustment is in the middle of the engine at the rear. You can get to it from the right side of the bike. This adjusts the RPM of the engine. The adjustment for balancing the left/right cylinder banks is on the right side under the CFI cover. You cannot balance front/rear cylinders on e...

Re: Back to a two Bike Family - Sold the 1800

The 1800 is in the same department, lots of plastic to take off to get anything done. Have to admit that the power and smooth operation of the 1800 is very good. Have to be realistic and get into my comfort zone. The '85 LTD is a great bike as well, looks like one and I can easily do my own wrenchin...

Sold my GL1800. Twas good while it lasted, but room is at a premium and I like my two '85 LTDs. Kept the 1800 manuals, never know when these will be needed. Keeping these on the road will be challenging in itself. Get a lot of favourable comments on my '85 here in Victoria, more so than the 1800 - l...
