Re: Not sure what these are

The Centramatics at one point could be had in Chrome or in your kind of finish. When you shake them or rotate them it sounds similar to sand moving around. But when theyre mounted on the wheel you have to mount them a specific way with the welds being oriented a specific way from side to side. At le...

Re: LED Lights

Also if you add inline resistors you defeat the other purpose od adding LEDs. I have HID headlights and LED brake bulbs and LEDs wherever I can to give the bikes alternator a break. Adding a resistor only puts a load on like a halogen bulb and doesnt save you any voltage. And occasionally some of th...

Re: '03 GL1800 Shifting change

Changing the clutch fluid is a bit of a bear as you have to pull the cowl and drop the evap canister and then youll find the bleeder on the master. But between changing the fluid and greasing and cleaning the bushings and pivot pins on the levers it will feel like new. I did my clutch about 3 weeks ...

Re: '03 GL1800 Shifting change

One of the quick and dirty things you can do is pull the pivot pins and bushings and clean and regrease them for the clutch and brake levers. Sometimes that will help. Number 2 is about 4 years ago I kinda had the same thing it turned out the shift linkage joints were stiff lubed them with tri flow ...

Re: Kuryakin Iso Grips over OEM Heated

I didnt like the ISO grips it didnt seem like they didnt bleed heat easily throught the grips. I wound up going to grip puppies as they easily let the heat through as compared to Kuryakyn. With Kurys and the metal grips if you take your hand off they cool off quickly. With the Grip puppies the heat ...

The Cobra trike tire gets mounted normally and has an directional arrow on the side for reference. Ive had mine over 3 years after go...

Re: New EPA mandate for more Ethanol in 2019

I was at Speedway gas station this weekend and now they have a sticker on their E15 pumps stating to be used in 2001 and newer cars and flex fuel cars but not to be used in boats and mowers. Amazing what the government and big business will do for money with no care to the consumer.

Re: what do you use to lift your trike for service and inspection










I use ramps and hydraulic jackstands. If I need to raise the front of the trike I have a 1500 lb ATV jack I utilize for lifting under the engine. With the jackstands I can raise them up to 26 inches to work underneath.

The bike no longer had a tendency to follow the cracks in the road and the ride on the highway at speed was a lot smoother and ...

If you purchase the armrests that mount to the seat grab handles one of the things you have to look out for is that the bracket has clearance for the passenger backrest heater knob.

Re: Cleaning front tire

Another good polish is Flitz a metal polish you can get at some auto stores and Ace hardware. It works just as well as the higher end mag polishes and makes it easier to clean when they get dirty as it has some silicone in it. If you use a powerball or cone with a drill it looks exceptional.
