Re: Fuel odor

Overfilling can cause the odor and I wonder if the fuel vent hose is routed correctly from the tank. Ive seen guys put the top shelter on after doing some work and not really doublechecking to make sure its routed right . So that might be worth a look also.

Re: Spark Plug for 08 1800

I get mine at Advance auto. I signed up with them and get 20% emails all the time so theyre cheaper than Honda. We also have a chain of stores here called Farm and Fleet and they have the plugs priced reasonably besides having a lot of great cleaning products for bikes also. I tried the Iridiums and...

Re: Fully Restored 1989 Honda GL1500SE For Sale

Sadly I have to agree with John I have a friend who deals in used 1500s and since the new 1800s came out the old 1800 prices have dropped and made the market soft for 1500s.

Re: Engine protection plate

I thought about it long and hard when I first bought mine. What I wound up doing instead is I bought some aluminum and made a cover for the bottom of the overflow tank for the coolant. With all of the wings on the road and over all of the years you hear very few stories about issues from road debris...

Re: Long distance trailering?

There was a couple some years ago on the forums,cant remember if it was this one or another. They trailered a gl1500 home with a cover and the cover basically beat the bike up. From the wind whipping it around it scratched and beat up the paint and finish on the bike. Ive trailered one on an open tr...

Re: Rake Kit - How do you know you have it

Also you can look at the clearance between the back of the fender and the cowl . With the front tire straight if you can put your fist longways between you have a raked front end. A stock front end has very little clearance between the 2. The trick is figuring out how much of a rake you have if your...

Re: BEST FRONT TIRE FOR GL1800 TRIKE

In the 12 years Ive owned my trike and with the miles Ive ridden I found the Avon TRIKE tire to be the best for handling and ride. I tried the BT 45 and the Michelin and yes theyre cheaper and you get more miles but to me the ride is harsher or due to the tread design one of them has a buzz. Ive got...

Re: Ipod

Ive tried an Ipod on mine the only thing I found the Ipod didnt have enough volume. I wound up putting a Boostaroo and that solved the issue. I used the Ipod cross country and it was great alternative.

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 ...
