Re: Parting out 95 SE gl1500 80k miles lots of extras

Hello, my name is Dan from Orleans Ontario, Canada,
I have a 93 Goldwing, and my air compressor seems to be leaking air from the valve. was wondering would you part out the air hoses and compressor, and how much more for the shocks.

Re: air compressor leaking

ya well I took it off to see if it was damaged, as the air is coming out from there.. I put it back in as tight as it was but when I spayed soapy water well it bubbled..

I don't want to buy progressive shocks.. but if this does not work well I may have to go that way.

any other ideas..

Re: center lower trunk lights replacement

thank you very much.. and it's the one in between the brakes that's not lit up,
