Re: Vetter Fairing

Very well done! 👍 Two questions:

1) Did you make your own tinted windscreen?

2) Where did you find those badges on the Krausers? I like how they dress up the 'bags'.

Probably should have sold the new one, LOL. It's not going to last 30 years! It would be interesting to find out, Generac makes some pretty good stuff. If I had use for a snowblower it would likely outlast ME. :lol: 100_0891.JPG 100_0892.JPG The Yooper Tourist Trap is a very fun place to visit. I a...

Re: 1976 GL1000 for sale

That bike seems to be in great shape. I wish you well with sale. If it was closer, and I didn't already have 2 76's I would snap it up in a heartbeat. 😉

BTW: Is it road ready, ie could a buyer ride it home vs needing a trailer?

Re: Oil level check

I've been watching for one of those kits for a while. After all the effort to get down there and look :( :lol: I can't tell where the level is even after wiping inside and out..

Yep I learned that from reading about others mistakes, That's why I was planning on the thin stuff they use to wrap pallets of boxes with. I will look into seeing if a hair drier will tighten it up after installation.
Please let us know how that works out.

Re: Touring on an older bike?

Good advice here. I might add that anything you could do right now to help preserve it while continuing it's sleep would be wise. Remove the battery, and follow winterizing guidelines offered elsewhere on this site.

Re: Gl1500 stuck motor. Can I remove heads in-frame?

Maybe you have already thought of it, but I would try every way possible to get penetrating oil to all 360 degrees of each set of rings. Simply filling each cylinder may or may not accomplish that if the oil can find a way to leak down. (Maybe I'm wrong here.) My thought would be to fabricate an ext...

Re: Cruise lag time

I've begun lately to pay more attention to how I release the throttle after setting the cruise. It seems to help if I get to the desired speed then hold the throttle steady while I set the cruise. Then I CONTINUE to hold the throttle steady for a second or two before releasing. This also seems to le...

Re: Whinning Speedo

My speedo did the same thing. I googled the problem and one of the responses was the fact(?) that the noise is most commonly a result of a brass bearing or bushing right where the cable connects to the guage wanting some TLC. They recommended disconnecting the cable, removing the speedo, turning it ...
