Re: traffic light stop/wait/go best practice?

All good advice. However I find that, for me, there is one exception to the left foot down rule. That is, when I am riding two up on my 1500. Always both feet down for me. There is a very fine line between balancing and dumping the beast when at full stop.

Not sure if he has what you need but look above under "store". Admin has quite a few 1500 body parts.

Re: Diff seal replacement - how easy?

Are you sure the leak is from the final drive? Might want to check the right shock for the leak. Oil will drip from the shock down on the drive and then drip onto the tire. Just another possibility.

Re: New Member Here

Welcome! I have a tall windshield on my Gl1500 and it stops a lot of wind noise but I still get traffic and road noise. So earplugs are still needed.

Re: experts only LOL TY 88 GL1500

Before you do anything drastic you may want to check you clutch for proper operation. Fluid, master cylinder and slave cylinder. Either or all.

Re: Timing Belt Life

I can personally attest to the damage caused by a broken timing belt. After inspecting belts on my 76 just after I first got it (Recommended by the manual.) I decided that they looked like new (famous last words) and didn't change them. Two bent exhaust valves and a tow truck charge resulted. I also...

Re: new ignition switch gl1200A

I hope that switch works out for you and you don't have to try to return it. Search this site for threads about them. By the way Barracuda is their store brand which, for me, says it all.

Re: What brand of AGM battery is best?

Question for dingdong...which Duracell battery did you have? Was it the gray case that is made in the USA or the other color case that is foreign made. I'm asking because my October 2018 replacement is the USA model, and I would like to know what I might expect for its longevity. It was the gray ca...

Re: Start Problem

Sounds like you have a starter that needs rebuilding. Don't purchase a after market starter as they are mostly junk and will fail. May just need brushes but a good time to check bearings and re-lube planetary gears.

Re: 1994 GL1500 Aspencade No start condition

Just going by memory here ??? Relay #7 "position" is for the "position" lights. Turn signals and such. It is the only relay that can't be interchanged with the others because it is a normally closed contacts relay. When power is applied the contacts open.... all others are normally open contacts.

I have been doing this for ever. I didn't know it was called trail breaking.
Watch for this riders brake lights. Don't know if front or back but he is braking into the curves.

Re: Need motorcycle, trying to find financing or other option

That 1200 looks like a clean bike. Also says obo. If you can get the money make a starting offer considerably lower. Perhaps $1200 and go from there.
