Re: How to use a motorcycle lift

Thank you sir. I see your centerstand is down there, i thought another poster made a comment that the bike was too unbalanced with the lift that far forward, sorry if I got confused. You are absolutely right, just moving it back and forth till it balances is going to be best. If I can do it on the ...

Re: Having a real problem keeping my 92 1500 cc Gold Wing upright

I need to design a little idiot light that comes on when in 1st gear... Stoplight two blocks from the house, pulled up to the stoplight to make a right turn, there was still a little road sand in the intersection (this was spring last year) and when the light turned green I took off, too late disco...

Re: How to use a motorcycle lift

If it is not too much trouble, would somebody be willing to take a few photos of their 1500 on a jack like this? I borrowed a jack from a buddy that seems to be identical to the one in the original post. I am just really curious to see where the pads of the jack will need to sit in relation to the ...

Re: The Invisible Motorcycle

I totally agree with this. There are so many disadvantages of a motorcycle compared to a car on the road, in terms of safety. One of the big advantages is power to weight ratio, where a motorcycle can out-accelerate cars and quickly remove itself from harm's way. This advantage is totally nonexisten...

Re: Ultimate motorcycle seat

The lights were finally going bad and it was either replace the bulbs or retrofit with LED. LED was the best option. The lenses came apart ...

I've tried the method described in the diy articles twice now and I just can't see how it can come out the side. There just is not room while on the center stand. Remov...

Re: GL1500 Neutral indicator

It's not a single switch like that. It's a rotary switch, potted, that is mounted on the inside of the front engine cover. It gets rotated by the shift drum, and tells the bike what gear it is in (or neutral). The engine cover has to come off to gain access to it.

Re: Radio cuts out when braking

That sounds then like a bad ground. The radio's ground connection is broken (or partially broken), but it is also connected to the ground for the brake lights - both the brake lights and the radio use the G100 ground point as well as the C192 ground distribution tap. When the brake lights are off, t...

Yes, that is exactly what I am trying to do.
The 22 pin white connector is C10, and it is the correct one to use. Green is ground, Green/red is the brake wire you want to interrupt (+12v when brakes on), and brown has +12v when the ignition is ON. So yes, sounds like you have it exactly right.

Re: A new method of demounting and remounting tires on rims

Interesting thread. BUT I was a bit surprised to read "... valve stems should be replaced regularly."
