Re: Where are all the pull behind campers?

I have both a LearsureLite and a Bushtec and we use the LeasureLite all the time as it carries all our stuff and keeps us from camping on the ground and powers my CPAP to boot. I'm 77 and plan on a few more years and trips. Did about 5,00 miles this summer and plan to double that next summer. The Bu...

Re: Where are all the pull behind campers?

I love my Leesure Lite and have used it quite a bit over the years. It is built in Canada.

Re: Riding after back/spine injury...

I have a bit of experience with back problems and have never thought of not riding. I have had six knee replacements in the last few years along with fusion of C5,C6,C7. I have just finished up with surgery on L5/S1 twice and have now finished 5 sessions of ablation of the affected nerves in my lowe...

Re: Gosh darn oil leak

The syn. oil has nothing to do with your leak. Switching back will not fix your leak.
You do need to find the leak. Bare in mind that oil runs down and back and go look.
A good wash will help you find the leak.
Good luck,

Who has installed and is using the aftermarket LCD with computer unit

I found reference to the computer replacement for the original LCD display at about $400 and I am interested how that worked out from anyone that installed it.
Thanks

Re: LED fuse/relay

Re: LED fuse/relay

Sure sounds like a bad LCD driver board. Might be repairable, might not. Is the driver part of the LCD? If I order a Tanin LCD replacement would that include a new driver? I am tiring of chasing this problem instead of being out riding and would really like to" Done and Done." Thanks for ...

Re: LED fuse/relay

Bad news for me. After going out for the last couple of days and turning on the bike to find the correct time displayed and the pump working, today nothing. Went to try the emery cloth idea and found a divider in the way. Pulled and reinserted the fuse a few times and tried inserting the emery cloth...

Re: LED fuse/relay

A BIG thank you to all that helped. I believe I have found the culprit and it is the fuse in the Relay box. After removing all of the fuses to check them ( they all looked good and tested good) I remove that fuse and checked it because the LCD would not turn completely off . I finally replaced it an...

Re: LCD fuse/relay

I have random displays if I have any. Sometimes everything works as it should. Most times I get no display. And sometime...

Re: LED fuse/relay

I did indeed mean LCD. Got a bunch of other work here that involves LEDs, sorry about that. I have dried and coated the unit and it seemed to be working alright and just now it either comes on and works just fine or it does not come on at all and neither do the lights for it. The clock is random. Th...

Don't know why and will not ask it now.

LCD screen stays on always

Thanks for all the help with the ALT light. Today I found a two wire plug under the dash that when unplugged eliminates the Alt light. The problem is now that the LCD never turns off, even if I plug the wires back together. Never had this problem before. LCD was sealed and worked fine until today. W...

Re: did GL1500SE come with a Alternator light from the factory

But mine is bad. Where did you tie in at?
I want to turn mine off and I have ordered a digital meter to mount near the same place.
I would feel better if I were to terminate the old wire and not just put tape over the light :D
I might even find the thimamagij that turns it on and off.

did GL1500SE come with a Alternator light from the factory

Can some one tell if the Alt light I have is aftermarket or did the light come from the factory?
I am beginning to believe the bike did not come with the light and I just need to disconnect it and find a better meter than I have now.
Thanks,

Re: ALT light is on voltage at battery is 14.2

I forgot to add that I have an inline meter installed by the PO so I don't know where it is connected. It shows about 1 VDC less than my meter at the battery.
Could the problem be in there somewhere? If so do you have any idea where I might look?

ALT light is on voltage at battery is 14.2

I was riding home on my GL1500SE (1996) when the alt light came on. Went home and ordered a new alternator from Amazon. Installed new alternator and got 14.1 volts at battery and the light is still on. Checked wires and fuses again and got the same result. Got a new alternator the next day in instal...
