Re: Ignition key

The key is not stuck in the ignition, it just simply won't turn on, the key will not turn. I had it running five hours prior, and then when I went to move it later in the evening the ignition just simply will not turn! I'll try WD-40 but for some reason I just don't have a lot of faith Don't use WD...

Re: Ignition key

If you already have a key stuck in the lock - what is the use of having a second key - you can't put it in the lock as well... :D I would try the WD40 or penetrating oil - a bit of heat and a good wiggle. It should come out - unless something else has jammed in there with it. Happened to me on a ro...

Re: Police Hoverbike

$150,000 each? No thanks! I can think of a lot better use for $150,000. I could buy a nice used Bell Jetranger helicopter for that price. It will carry four or five people at 140 mph. The hoverbike is obviously for the "more money than brains" crowd. LOL!!! JetRanger? $150K? I wouldn't fly in that....

Re: Lighting issue

Definitely your Wal-mart (N)everstart batteries could be improved upon. For another $30-40 you could get an AGM, and adding a $20 Battery Tender on top of that, you wouldn't need to buy another battery for the next 6-7 years.

Re: How to winterize your motorcycle

On the GL1500, emptying the carburetors of fuel before putting the bike away for the winter is fairly easy. Not quite as easy as the four-cylinder bikes (run the engine, shut off the petcock), but still fairly easy. On the bike just in front of the gas cap, you'll see the fuel petcock. The small rub...

Re: put away for winter

Two days in a row I've woken up to 22°F (-5°C) weather and snow falling. There is salt on the roads just east of here. I think the writing is on the wall. Looks like I'll take the bike out today, get it good and hot, fill the gas, then bring it home to change the oil and put it away for the winter.

Re: Rear car tire for GL1500SE tug

You might get it to fit the tire between the swingarm legs, but once it is mounted and inflated, chances are the tire will either rub badly, or be wedged in there solid and will not move.

I (and many others) run the Austone tire with very good results.

First, to check if the master cylinder return is blocked, open the bleed valve on the clutch slave.
