Re: Is This 93 SE Worth a Look?

I would be very concerned as to why the bags have been replaced. More than likely collision damage. Probably been rear ended.

Re: No fuel feed when trying to start

You need to check the fuel pump output to determine if it is actually working.

Re: Do I Have Reverse?

Interstate models do not have reverse. However if there is a reverse lever the engine has been changed or it isn't an interstate. Tranny in neutral, pull out and up on the lever until it latches (R will display on the dash unless it is an interstate with a different motor) then press the start butto...

My noise up front was the caliper bushing missing.
Perhaps the bolt up under the axle is loose?
Virgil are you talking about the bolt that has to be removed to separate the forks?
This started all of the sudden. One day good the next day bang.

BANG go the forks. Gl1500

This problem just recently developed when on our trip to Utah (93 1500). When I ride through a rut or off a shallow drop off (say at least 2 inches) at slow speeds , about 10 to 15 mph, the forks go BANG. And I mean BANG. Sounds like hitting a boulder with a sledge hammer. I can't think of anything ...

Re: 195/75R16 LT tire on a GL1500

The inner fender position has to be modified to use the Austone and even then riding two up can cause the tire to rub and melt the inner fender. It also causes the bike to lean over considerably more when on the side stand. Harder to lift. Doubt a taller tire would work at all.

Re: looking for Best Anti-vibration handle for my GL1200

I also like foam grips. Decreases vibration and the increase in diameter helps with hand fatigue.
Look here.

Re: I've got nothing.

Since you are getting a click more than likely the starter has failed. If so a rebuild is better than replacing with an aftermarket. Most of them are junk. However you should check for voltage at the starter post to be sure. If you have voltage there the solenoid is good and the starter is bad.
