Re: Passenger Board Relocation

Yes the kit looks correct. There is about a 3 inch rise from the original position after mounting because of the mounting bracket design. Adjustment is only about 1 3/4 inch however.

Re: Passenger Board Relocation

I have them on my 93 aspy. They do work. My wife (short legs) loves them. There is one down side however. In order to access anything behind the side covers, like the battery, you have to loosen the two bolts and drop the boards to the lowest level. Really no big deal. I keep a T handle hex driver i...

Re: Advice on bike for sale, '98 103k miles

Seeing that you are in Florida there will perhaps be rust problems. Especially with the exhaust system.

Re: ?Shock Adjustment? - Rear Bottoming Out

I think that is way to much pressure for the front. The 1000 forks weren't designed for air. Someone has probably added air valves to the original fork tubes. Which will work but not with pressures that high. The gl1100 fork tubes were designed for air and the air pressure is rated at 12 to 21 lbs. ...

Re: Solder Seal

I watched a couple of videos on youtube about using this product. Conclusion: I won't be using this. I would use a standard butt connector before using this. My preference is still standard solder and a soldering iron with heat shrink. Seems however that wire size makes a difference in performance. ...

Re: darkside tire sizes need help

I'm running a Nokian 195-55 on my 99 1500. Handles great. I only have 18,000 miles on it so far, so it has a ways to go. But I already have a Austone Taxi here to replace it when I finally wear it out. Where can I get an Austin’s taxi tire? You probably can't. They aren't sold in the US anymore.

Re: New GL1100 owner seeking info on relay mod

I personally have not heard of this mod. Can you be more specific as to what the mod is supposed to accomplish? The coils are made to fire on 7 volts. A higher voltage will shorten the life of the coils.

I have a question for you who attended the meet. How were the covid precautions handled? Masks, 6ft. Distancing? Hand shakes? Hugs? Or not at all? Asking because I will be attending a meet and greet soon and the question has come up.

Re: fuel and timing issues??

I didn't know that. Sorry. I would still put off my trip as long as possible until I got the carbs rebuilt. Last thing I would want to happen is breaking down riding across Nevada on hwy 50. Just joking but... not knowing your planned route. ??? I wish you luck.

Re: fuel and timing issues??

Just my opinion. If you are really going to attempt a 15 day ride out West on that 1100 then do yourself a favor and purchase the Randakks carb kit and do the carb rebuild properly. Last thing you want to have to do is rebuild the carbs while on your ride. Good luck to you!

Re: Throttle cable removal from carbs

And after you loosen the nuts and remove the cable sheaths from the mounts, a set of 8 inch hemostats makes removing and replacing the cable ends from the bell crank much easier.

Re: Vacuum Leak with Choke?

That sucking sound is normal on the 1500. The "choke" isn't the traditional choke that blocks intake airflow. It is an enrichener that sucks additional "fuel" into the carbs, causing the sucking sound.

Early on, "Iron Butt" can have a whole new meaning...

I've started with this document:

http://www.ironbuttrally.com/tech/aowprintout.cfm

This will certainly seed any further discussion about riding, touring or any ride-related topics.
Mostly good info there. I picked a few tips.
