Re: Instrument panel plastic gl1500 98

You all never fail me :-)
I had poured over that schematic before but the meter part blew right past me.
I plan on doing some instrument lighting replacement coming up and it’s a relief to know my mess up wasn’t permanent.
Thanks for the swift and accurate reply Mike!

Re: Clutch Kill Switch?

The clicks mentioned were they key.
I started listening when the clutch was engaged and couldn’t find the second click.
Took that switch off and cleaned then made sure it was in good contact with the clutch handle.
(Checked my wiring while I had it out)
Works like a charm now.
Much appreciation!

Re: Clutch Kill Switch?

Thanks for the reply’s!
I do have the manual and will test the switches next.
Wiring isn’t a bad idea either-need to make sure I have them in correct.
Appreciate your assistance.

Clutch Kill Switch?

Hello everyone! Should be a quick question (I hope) Rebuilt master slave cylinder and the master cylinder on my 98 Gl1500. Everything is working good except now the only way I can get it to start is if it’s in neutral. Even when the kickstand is up pulling the clutch handle in does not allow me to s...

Re: GoldwingHID headlight failed

Honestly, having had the GoldwingHID kit and the LEDs now available, I would rip it out and replace with LEDs. They are far superior. Thanks everyone. I went with plan LED My kit came today from SoCal and I couldn’t believe the difference in the simplicity of the wiring. Compared to what I am takin...

Re: road noise?

No, calipers do not have that type of adjustment. However, there is info on this site about cleaning the pistons and the complete assembly, tear down and reassembly. That might be all you need. WingAdmin did a great presentation with pics. Check the technical forum for the info. It is not too hard ...

Re: Tire Replacement

Thank you
Helps making a decision
The date code is past 6 years and even though the tire looks brand new I’m going to err on the side of caution and just replace both with new.
I appreciate your time and assistance.
