Re: Tragedy in New Hampshire.

Doesn't say why, but the highway has double solid yellow lines, so not a passing zone. Maybe a cell phone?

Goldwinggreg - about your new avatar... Although I am definitely into cowgirls, and that one is nice looking, it is a step down from your previous avatar. That being said, I believe it will reduce your credibility rating, :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: Open trunk - horn blows steady

Greg, do you know the part number for the harness in question? Is it 32120 MCA H50? The one that goes across both hinges and into the trunk? Looking at a parts fiche of wiring is like looking into a birds nest. Thanks.

Re: Trunk running/turn signal bulb.. 2 acorn nuts keep turning

You will need to get some pressure under the acorns so that they can bite into the plastic studs and carve their way off. A knife blade, standard thin blade screwdriver or a dental pick can help.

It is all about practice, practice, practice. The more I ride the better I get at riding.

I use this all the time when riding the twisties. It makes the whole procedure a lot more fun, as it feels like bike and rider are one, carving through those tight curves. Counter steering comes heavily into play as well. Man, what a rush. Love it. I search for roads that I can ride this way (such a...

I have 2003 Wing which is new to me in 2017. I have run an air compresor off of this socket. Could mine have been modified or maybe overfused? Yes, I would bet so.

Re: 2010 cigarette lighter fuse

If you can find a one that just plugs into the socket, it may work fine, but they do make total replacements for the cigarette lighter style one that you have. They are plug and play, and just need to be installed in the pocket and the wires plugged in where yours are now. Here is a plug in one http...

Re: Reverse gear questions GL1800

Reverse is accomplished by using the starter motor. I would think that yes, 50' of reversing twice each day on a consistant basis could prematurely wear the starter out, or overheat it, and a trike would increase the wear and overheating due to the extra weight. If it was mine, and if I was healthy ...

Re: Ignition will no work

First thing I would check is battery condition and charge. That is the cause of most of the electrical problems that just pop up on pretty much all modern equipment. After that is proven to be good, then have a look at the ignition for wear, and the wiring to it. Then move to more difficult troubles...

One thing about that "cigarette lighter"... it cannot be used for anything except perhaps powering a cell phone or a GPS unit, if that. If you attempt to plug in an air pump or anything that draws any power at all, you will blow that 3 A fuse. A better solution that I have found is to replace that s...

Re: Starting Problem

Could be so many things. First thing I would look at would be the battery. If it is not up to full strength and is dropping below 10.9 Volts (I think that is the limit) while cranking, then the ECM will not have enough power to develop spark to start the bike. Then because you "excercised" the batte...

I suspect the wires in the harnesses near the right trunk hinge have broken and shorted together. You hit it on the head DaveO430. Right side wiring had three wires that had cut insulation, and one broken. There was nothing burnt, but obviously, cross shorting was the problem. Green, PinkWgreen and...
