Re: Will coils from a K3 be good for a KZ?

Hello. Just saw this. If you are still in need of assistance, could you please clarify: When you say KZ do you really mean K2, as in GL1000? Or do you really mean a Kawasaki KZ bike? If you mean Kawasaki, that could explain why no one has responded to this, as they/we are not familiar with the Big K...

Re: Bloody Hell just look at this !!

I'm quite shocked at what appears to be such a narrow cross section of material, although I don't know anything about metallergy and am confident they thoroughly tested these forks.

Re: Air Shock Question

Thanks for the suggestions. I am out of town for a spell, so my 'project' is on hold while I ride my Michigan Wing. It's tough, but.... :lol:

Re: Would it be impossible to learn this as my first motorcycle?

Regarding being flat-footed at a stop... Yes, you can alter the air suspension a little. You could also lower the triple tree at least a half inch. One simple approach would be to wear boots with very thick soles. You would be surprised how much that helps.

Re: Air Shock Question

Well, I searched ebay and there was no mention of bushings. Springs, etc and even NOS shock kits. I contacted Progressive, because there was speculation some time ago on other forums that S & W was either bought out by or morphed into Progressive. Got basically a non-answer from them. It's not a pro...

Air Shock Question

I am happy to report that my 'new' '76 LTD project is nearing completion. However, the upper shock bushings (and no doubt the lower ones, too) have hardened and turned brittle over the years and in this heat. When I started working on it I would occasionally notice white dust or 'crumbs' on the swin...

Passenger Footpegs

I just noticed that the passenger pegs on my 'new' 76 LTD fold back at a 45 degree angle to the rear, whereas the ones on my other 76 (Avatar) fold straight up. Normally it would be NBD, but I have some aftermarket floorboards that I took off the Michigan Wing that I would like to install on the LTD...

Re: 1992 gl 1500 turns over no spark, no fuel

Hmmmm. I am certainly no expert. My electrical testing bag of tricks consists mostly of checking connections, fuses, etc., using a simple multimeter to check voltage, continuity and ohms, and bypassing or swapping parts. I have owned my 94A since new (187,000 miles and counting) and have done a vast...

A Little Help With Battery Wiring?

Continuing with my revamp of the wiring on my 'new' '76 LTD... I need to know what the wiring should look like near the starter relay(?). I think the PO might have "tapped into" power in this area and I want to return it to a stock configuration. Here are some pix of what I have now. Note that I rep...

Google is my friend again. Checking multiple images, it does indeed appear that there was just a plug there, and that DaveO430's estimation is most likely correct as well. I have removed the wire and will shop for a plug once more pressing tasks are completed. Thanks, All. Enjoy the riding season wh...

Re: What Is This?

That is a possibility. There is a temp gage on the fairing 'dash', but I assumed it was for coolant. The gage displays a temp range of 0-300 F. Any idea what normally goes in that spot (on the motor 😀)?

Hi. I am trying to untangle the wiring mess on my new 76 LTD and accidentally cut the wire to this sensor or switch. Can someone tell me what it is, and where I need to reconnect the black wire? I can't seem to identify it by either pictures or the wiring diagram in the Honda Shop manual. Many thank...
