My list of winter projects:

- replace timing belts
- install saddlebag lights
- install power port in trunk
- install passenger heel protectors
- install power port in front right pocket

my wing is a 1998 gl1500 SE, it only has 20,000 miles on it, is there anything else I should consider replacing or servicing due to age of the wing, any suggestions welcome.

The wing looks like it is brand new, other then some of the switches were sticking when I first got the Wing (which I have pretty much taken care of that issue with electrical cleaner).

Make sure there is not an airlock in the uppercylinder.

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.
