Re: Dodge Neon Coil Compatability

Sorry to say that I no longer have access to a 1100 to make sure the bracket would fit correctly. If this changes in the near future I will let you know 8-)

Re: Battery Amps

It is safe to charge your battery at 2 amps, the rule of thumb says 10% of battery capacity is safe for wet cell and AGM batteries. 8-)

Re: Austone Taxi Tire

I know this tire change is fairly popular to do, but doesn't it severely decrease the handling on twisties? It may be fine for casual cruising but can't handle as well as a good MC tire for spirited riding. Anyone regret making the switch? The Austone tire is more than capable of any spirited ridin...

Re: Anyone been turned away from CycleMax?

It was attached to the front of the bike with the screws supplied, and after seeing how much it stuck out on both sides, it was immediately removed and placed back in the original packaging. these are your words and the very definition of used. You bolted it on, that means it fit. you just didnt li...

Doesn't the Neon coil not require the resistor? I can see from the Neon coil that Todd made that it doesn't have a resistor.
no resistor needed, simply wire it up and bolt it on, ask Little beaver how well it works. 8-)

Re: GL1100 alternator conversion (how I did mine)

The 2 inch pulley you see in the pics came from another alternator salvaged from a wrecking yard. check with an alternator repair shop to see what they can supply you with, or have one cut to your specs at a machine shop. I spent alot of hours in the wrecking yard looking for parts that will work fo...

Re: Question for the dark siders

The Austone Taxi tire is a very good choice for your first Darkside experience. You can order it from Universal Tire. It is slightly taller than the stock MC tire and will fit with zero issues other than maybe having to use a zip tie to pull the inner fender plastic forward a tad. The taller tire wi...
