Re: Login

Have to admit, I just installed it on a new laptop that has Windows 10 and "POW" I was there almost as fast as I hit the shortcut in my Chrome browser!

Re: How to add a trunk rack to your bike

Not sure what the PO of my bike did to it, but both the trunk lid and it's inner liner are cracked where the rack was put on with star fittings. I'm thinking I will have to remove the liner and fix it, and then grind out each of the cracks on the lid itself from the inside and repair all of them wit...

Re: Headlight Modulator

Eventually, they sent me a model P115W-D which is two units that plug in between the light bulb and the socket and have a different photo eye cable. It has worked well the last rides I have taken so we will see. My point is if you are thinking of a modulator for the 1500, I would recommend the P115...

Re: Changing Timing Belts

Yes, you are very fortunate. I paid $5,500 for mine a few years back and I am STILL finding "jury-rigged" issues on almost everything that I either take apart or get a closer look at! :evil:

Re: ride to a stranger?

When I traveled about 100 miles north to purchase my 88 1500 (which I have since sold), the owner asked if I had experience with a heavy bike and I had to honestly answer "No", so he said I could not ride it. Heck, I was so unfamiliar with handling a big bike (my last one years ago was a Yamaha RD40...

This is great news and so good to see Mrs. WingAdmin on the website! As others have mentioned, the more you ride your new machine the more quickly you will become intimately familiar with how Ingrid responds in any situation.

So looking forward to meeting you at the gathering!

Re: Electrical Connection LED Headlight

I believe it was tied to the wiring bundle right next to the front of the triple tree, that runs down from the handlebars. If I remember correctly. Okay, I have the light assembly loosely bolted in and it looks like the left on that has to cross over to get to the cutout really shouldn't be an issu...

Also, you can repair it with ABS cement. I have made several repairs on my project bike. The parts are ABS and it works great.
Tony is right! ABS repairs, once you get a handle on a few basics, is relatively simple. Do you have any photos of the cracks?

Re: Electrical Connection LED Headlight

I prefer using zip ties to mechanically fasten things in place, but when I do use double sided tape, I buy 3M VHB (Very High Bond) double-sided foam tape - the adhesive on it is incredibly strong. In all the years I have been using it, I have never had it fail. And it can be removed relatively easi...

Never heard of that, will keep in mind next time I need to get after some surface rust.
Crumpled up aluminum foil is a well-known fix for removing rust from chrome.
Works great on cleaning up rims too!

Re: Electrical Connection LED Headlight

Well, it turns out, like I try to convince my wife..some of the only times I make a mistake is when I think I did. Had forgotten that I installed shims with the last set of H4s that I replaced. :oops: Oh well, when I receive the 2 sets that ordered from Cyclemax, I really will have extras!

Scott, thanks for this excellent review. I just ordered my set directly from Electrical Connection. I hope I get the shims I need :? I almost can't wait to get them installed and show them to my somewhat snobbish SoCal light owner buddies..lol
