Re: Helibar adjustable hAndlebars

I do though have Heli-bars. Yes, they go up/down, forward/aft and in/out (wheelbarrow effect). They are as advertised. Expensive but if you need them, worth every penny. Tall guys especially like the Mick-o-Pegs. Trouble is they have like 20 different models for the Wing. Give them a call or e-mail...

Re: Helibar adjustable hAndlebars

My opinion, you would be better off with something like an Ultimate King seat, or a Corbin King seat, either of which would move you back about two inches. They do, however, both lower the amount of room for the passenger. If your passenger is large, then it gets to be a tight squeeze. If you like t...

Re: 2010 GL1800 Software and Nav update

The most current firmware version is 4.9. I believe jinx has used 4GB SD cards in the 2009/2010 U.S. version Navi unit or perhaps that was 4GB CF cards in 2006-2008 U.S. version bikes. The most up to date Garmin City Navigator maps are 2021.10 which came out in June. I do not believe they will even ...

Re: Used Prices on GL 1500s in the toilet

I held firm on the price when selling my 2007 Venture for over a year until I found the perfect buyer who knew and appreciated what I had. And that appears to be the key to getting any money for the older GL1500s. If you have a special one, you need to find that special person who wants it. Price i...

Re: Torsion Axel

From what I can see looking at trailer supply places, 400 lbs is about the lightest duty torsion system available. 204 Kg is 450, so that's probably just a different manufacturer.

Re: Cruise Control light constantly on

As Greg mentioned, a lot of riders turn this switch (push button) on and leave it on. I would far sooner have the light illuminated permanently - and for cruise to work - than for the light to be turned OFF and not be able to turn it on. This allows my cruise to be set or resume only without having ...

Re: stereo

Isn't the stereo in your year of bike a Clarion? Thought they were pretty decent. A lot of folks with Goldwings and stereo problems have reached out to Sierra Electronics and had them rebuilt. Maybe yours needs this.
