Need of a left side lower panel.

Not sure where to put this request for a part. What I'm needing is the left side panel for a 98 1500 SE. Does anyone have one? I see where Cycle Max has unpainted ones, I just thought maybe someone had one stashed somewhere.
Thanks Ed

Re: What does every one do for a living?

I have turned wrenches professionally since about age 18. I have always lived and taught others my goal, if the job takes you an extra 10 minutes or 1 hour to do it correctly, take that time, do the job right the first time. Come backs only upset your customers and slows you down. In 1997, I was off...

Re: Healtech OBD Diagnostic Tool

AZgl1800,
Hi, so the '98 15 SE has a OBD 2 port but it's hidden in the bike somewhere???? My My, Honda is making this a bit of knowledge into a Trivial Pursuit question.
Why do I need to know answers to things like this beets me.

Re: Healtech OBD Diagnostic Tool

I read all of the above posts including jayhawker. I started to get lost with all the talk about the right or wrong of protecting made in the USA products, and what to do about the clones that followed them. My question is; does a 1998 Gl1500 SE have a OBD 2 port? Does it take a special scanner (mot...

Re: Front brake disc covers

bluthundr31,
Thanks for the information. What you suggested is what I did. I just like the "idea" that air gets to the rotors better with the gap then without the gap. Goes back to my car racing days, air good, heat bad.
Hope your doing well in this era we are in.

Front brake disc covers

Hi all, I just noticed what may be an issue on my '98 1500 SE. That issue is; on the right side I noticed that the factory brake cover sits just about 1/8" out from the rotor, the left side sits even with the rotor. In other words, on the right you have a air gap between the inside of the chrome bra...

Re: rear brake not working

Darn bean counters any way. Thanks for the information, I forgot about the 1800's 6 piston calipers. I have heard of someone trying to convert a 1500 to the 1800 calipers. I never heard what his results were however. Difficult swap I'm sure. A lot of people talk about left and right side as they are...

Re: rear brake not working

well now, I guess my dyslexia got in the way again. I read soumililion comment as left front. I see now that he states right front. Thanks folks. I did not know Honda made a change from left to right. I'm guessing everybody's left means when you are "sitting" on the bike, versus "standing in front" ...

Re: rear brake not working

soumilinon,
Thanks for your input. I have rebleed the brakes. As I mentioned I did find the rear caliper bleeder was "just" snug, not tight. So far, no more issues. I still like my rear brake pedal height block I built. It just simply works for me.

Re: Help Needed Comparing Batteries

I sure others know this bit of information. NAPA batteries have been made for the last 10 years by Excide. They use to be made by Interstate. Big Time Battery is an excellent company. They offer a 3 year guarantee on a lot of their batteries. Most places only offer a 1 year prorated warrantee. Yuasa...

I have used Big Time Battery company for a few years now. I have bought batteries for 6 different brands of motorcycles, a few car and trucks and even one wheelchair that takes two battery. One reason I have started using their battery's is because our shop use to be a Excide battery distributer. To...

Solo So Long,
I have never heard of a "crush gauge". What is that? Is it like a line pressure gauge? Thanks for the infofmation.
Looking forward to learning about the gauge.

Re: Trailer build (or stuff I do in my spare time)

trailer looks a lot like the old penton's. They work the same way only you sleep down in the trailer instead of on top. Even the trailer lights look the same. I did not see any stabilizing bar when set up. I'm sure have them.
Nice work!

Re: rear brake not working

CrystalPistol,
Glad to make you laugh. I was tiring to say that both front caliper are working together. Apposed to one side working the other not working (there by the "pull"). Boy, choice of words can get one into so much trouble.
Thanks.

Re: rear brake not working

Wingadmin, So true. Good information. You can tell a lot by what the pedals do. Also just looking at the fluid will tell you a bunch as well. In my case, before winter storage all worked as it was suppose to. After winter maintenance and storage, then on the 2nd ride, well, I had a surprise. I'm gla...
