Shift pivot and mouse house eviction.

Post by bentleyss » Thu Aug 03, 2017 11:06 am



New GW owner here. Well having owned my GL1500 for 2 months now I decided to install the improved shift pivot assy. When I first got the bike I thought I was mis-shifting a lot getting used to the bike, but as I read the forum more I realized that I was not totally at fault. I read the reviews and watched the video a number of times and finally ordered an installed the unit. It took about 1 hour 45 minutes including the eviction of a mouse house Imfound when I removed the side cover . I purchased the bike in Wisconsin and drove it back her to Florida. Guess he was going to visit his cousins in Orlando. The shift pivot is definitely worth installing and as I was doing it I found and repaired one missing cover pin and the shift rubber was missing, so I ordered one of ebay. Also,checked the two drain hoses in the photo and checked them and siliconed the rubber grommets . Great forum for the DIY's here. Thanks to all who took the time to write and photo the articles.

I'm getting ready to install my new pivot in my new-to-me 1500, too.

Some time when you dig a little deeper into your bike, you should check your air filter, there's a good bet that Mr. Mouse has been in there too. Already looked at mine, relatively clean (I'll replace it next time I'm in there) but I did find about a dozen dried-up things that looked like they might have been cherries at one time.... I didn't have any screen to cover the air intake with, but I'll be better prepared next time.

There's a thread in here somewhere with a collection of photos of what's been found in air filters......
They say 98% of all Hardleys ever made are still on the road..... The other 2% made it home. :lol:
(I stole this from somebody on another GW site...) :roll:
