Sometimes there's just nothing you can do...

I came across this video. It's a GL1800 Airbag with an Innovv camera on the fairing, just like mine. Riding in the rain at night, a driver makes an illegal left turn in front of him. I don't know that I could offer anything that I would have done differently to avoid this. x0NIqFiNbVc Here's what he...

Re: Clutch stuck OPEN not engaged

Ouch. Yeah, RTV is nasty like that. When I replaced the cam plugs on my wife's PC800, you had to RTV the valve covers back on, and you better believe I spent a lot of time making sure there was JUST enough RTV in there to seal, and nothing more. All it takes is one bit of RTV clogging an oil passage...

Where do I put the wires 😱😱

Help 🤣
You want to have the output of the alternator go through a fuse, and then to the positive terminal of the battery.

Re: Front Brakes, fully rebuilt no pressure.

Are you getting air bubbles when you vacuum bleed, that might indicate a hose is leaking? That said, if a hose was leaking, you probably would see brake fluid weeping.

Also, try pumping the brake lever WHILE you vacuum bleed, to dislodge any air bubbles that might be in there.

Re: Bad Gas after 1 1/2 months?

Gas won't go bad that quickly.

I would first try some Seafoam in the gasoline, just to see if there might be a deposit that needs to be cleared out.

Re: synchronizing carbs

When the bike's fan comes on, it adds electrical load, which will slow down the engine, which will affect the vacuum readings that you're trying to match. So you use an external fan to blow through the radiator to keep the bike cool, and prevent it from turning on its own fan.

Re: Revival of a '96 Wing that has been sitting for 7 years.

Thanks guys. Realistically, I've never used it much so I wasn't aware of the smoke issue. Got the timing belts done but had a time of it. The pulse generators were glued to the block due to over use of thread sealer at the factory. I followed wingadmins article. It was a very good tutorial. Thanks!...
