Re: How to rebuild your brake caliper

Absolutely amazing article. My problem is I have got the lip of the boot out of the groove in the collar but I cannot get the collar to move at all. I am guessing it has a lot of build up and is seized. I have sprayed with brake cleaner and will let it sit for a while and then spray it some more. O...

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

So I was able to purchase the factory repair manual thru my local dealer that is specifically for the 1996 model GL 1500 and it says the pump should run 1 to 2 seconds. No matter as my pump is shot and I've ordered a replacement. Many have staked and lost their reputations on what the service manua...

Re: Remove Chrome Radio Panel

If the double-sided tape is foam tape, I've also successfully used monofilament line slipped underneath to slice through that foam enough to get the piece off, then the remnants of the foam tape can be removed afterwards, like this:

The 88-89 (and perhaps 90? I would have to look it up) do this, but later models do not.

Re: Can a fuel pump be intermittent?

Could also be a faulty bank angle sensor. Try jumpering it and see if it solves the problem. If so, then replace the bank angle sensor. If it was the BAS it wouldn't crank. When the BAS start to fail, they will trigger a quick, transient "hey I've fallen over" signal, usually when you hit...

Re: My Aspencade, i washed it, now it won't start

Pull the spark plug boots off the plugs (one at a time, so you don't get them mixed up) and make sure there isn't any water in the spark plug well. If there is, it can short it out and cause no spark. There are drains in there, but they can get clogged.

Without the ads, this site would not exist. It's very expensive to run, and the ads pay for it. Just.

Wow, not much left there. You REALLY don't want to let your pads get this low, if you start scraping metal onto your brake rotors, your wallet is going to hurt when you find out the price of replacement motorcycle rotors. Unlike car brake rotors, motorcycle rotors are expen$$$$ive!

Be sure to replace the nylon spacers that Ram-Mount supplies with metal ones. Here we install custom made black ones instead.

What I use is a reservoir-fastened RAM mount .

Then you can clamp any RAM...
