Re: Third Annual GoldwingDocs Gathering - Sep 11-15, 2019

I got an email from the local GWRRA chapter in Maggie Valley, and he wanted to let me know that their "Wings Over the Smokies" event is happening just after our Gathering, for anyone who might be interested in staying in the area:

Re: MotoBatt MBTX24U Motorcycle Battery for GL1500

I bought one of these last week for my 1987 Gl1200I. Bought it online from Amazon, as I have Prime and the Amazon distribution center is in my local metropolitan area. Battery arrived DOA, and refused to accept a charge. Notified Amazon, they issued a full refund a couple of hours later and told me...

Re: No neutral light, won’t start after using reverse.

Switch behind the tupperware on reverse handle mechanism is likely stuck or otherwise out-of-whack. Tupperware will have to come off to get to the switch to get it back "in-whack"... It's a fairly common failure point, and Cyclemax carries them in stock for exactly that reason. https://cyclemax.com...

Re: Speaking of Austone Taxi Tires....

Bad news. I just got off the phone with one of the sales reps at Universal Vintage Tire. The news is not good. He said they have 19 tires left in stock, and once they're gone, they're gone for good. He said the factory is no longer making them, and a quick check on the Austone (manufacturer) web sit...

Re: GRRR! Another hour spent tryng to align the drive shaft and u-Joint!

The sure-fire works first time and every time method I've decided I will now always use is to pull the boot back, push a screwdriver in to lift the back of the u-joint, then have my wife hold it there while I push the driveshaft into it from behind. :)

Mine was rubbing the fender on the top, on the left side. I heated it up with a heat gun a bit, pushed it out slightly, and problem solved. Did you have to remove the wheel to do this? I sure hope not. If not, where did you access the inner fender from with the heat gun? Nope. I removed the left sa...

Re: Metzeler ME888 Marathon Ultra Tire

Highly recommend the Avon tires. The Dunlop Elite E4's have also gotten extremely, universally good reviews, although I haven...

Fishing it out as described might be your best bet, failing that you'll need to split the case (if you worked on Lycomings you'll be familiar with that) - only you don't get to remove the jugs first, and there's a transmission in there, too. Fitting it b...

I use Mobil 1 High Mileage 10-40 in my 1500. Make sure it does NOT have friction modifiers. The bottom half of the circle on back is blank. The clutch doesn’t like the friction modifiers and will slip. Years ago I had a Honda dealer tell me Honda oil was Mobil 1 semi synthetic. I don’t know how tru...

One of them is set so that when the pressure in the tank drops below a certain amount it lets outside air in, and the ...

Be really careful using the light bulb technique. You could end up melting some insulation on the wires that are shorted. If it is blowing a 30 amp fuse, you can do a lot of damage in a very short period of time. Of course, that will help you find the short, you will be able to smell the plastic bu...
