Re: Darkside Tech: Using Car Tires on a Motorcycle Rim

I went to the dark side on my 98 Valkerie. It took me a couple blocks to get used to it. By far it outlasted my motorcycle rear tire. The negative= My wife and I road on concrete and had to drive on a dirt/gravel road with some pot holes. I was strong then. I had her get off the bike and walk. Anoth...

Mirrors

After tearing my 94 GL1500 wing apart to rebuild the rear brake cylinder, I was down to the mirrors in putting everything back. The left and right side brass-colored brackets behind the plastic that I would screw the mirrors into have fallen away. What would be the best solution to retrieve them? I'...

1994 GL1500

2 Questions 1. What is the function of the Accumulator? My 94 Interstate doesn't have one. 2. What's the overflow reservoir rubber inlet on top referred to? I've torn my bike apart trying to find an antifreeze leak. The only thing I can find that may be where the antifreeze is coming from is where a...

1994 GL1500 Interstate

My newly acquired wing, after 12 hours, has its fairing off. One last thing is to sand down the speedo cable connector as it won't thread through a down tube. I gave up taking the cluster off. QUESTION??? Has anyone bobbed one of these 94's? I see plenty of 1984 models- 1000cc / 1200cc done on YouTu...

Thanks. Air filter is new per my inspection.
There's got to be a diagram somewhere to remove or show the bolts that need to come out in order to remove the fairing. I found something on this site. I touched the wrong button and can't find it again.
