Re: GL1100 alternator conversion (how I did mine)

Connect the sense wire to any switched power. The aux fuse panel is a good choice.😎

Re: Darkside: No Taxi Tire...now what?

I have said it before and will say it again. I am using a General Tire Altimax 195-55-16 on my 97 1500 with no issues at all. It does NOT rub the swing arm, it does NOT ride on the sidewall. This tire works well for me, I like to toss it around in the twisties here in the mountains of British Columb...

Re: Counteract Beads for Trailer Tires

I use the beads in my trailer too, it is my experience that “too many beads “ within reason are not harmful to the balancing. Better too much than not enough. I would use no more than 2 oz. in the 8 to 12 “ tires. Same as you would for the front tire on your bike. 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-)

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...
