Re: Dead stereo

Dear bewildered

Try with the key on, opening and closing the trunk lid, move the wires on the right side by the hinge to see if any changes happen. Possible broken wires in the harness by the hinge.
Hope you become unbewildered

Received mine on Saturday. A shame you other guys are having to wait so long for yours.
How long was your delivery?

I sent an email and they responded, " can't you wait another week?" I'm getting on the road to San Diego about then for the winter.

Re: Use an auto tire on the front wheel of a trike?

EML out of England was offering a Leading Link front end for goldwing trikes that has a 14" car tire on it. This one was on an 1800 I worked on a few years ago. The handling was vastly improved over the standard forks. It was coupled with a California Side Car Independent Rear Suspension trike kit. ...

Yup. Buy the 1 dual bulb kit and save $10 rather than 2 single bulb kits. It was probably a late day eh Scott?

Re: tires

As said, been a while so not up on the newer tires for the 1500. I didn't like the looseness on wet of the E3s and had gone to the darkside before trying another brand of mc tire on the rear of the 1500 before it's demise by cager and getting the 1800 to replace it. I had been studing the darkside d...

Re: tires

I hadn't tried a runflat on a 1500. I don't recommend a nonrunflat on a 1500. I tried 2 different nonrunflats and didn't like the squirliness in corners, above 80 was not good. Even put one I had taken off one 1500 and put it on a low mile(17,500) 1500, and had the same results. And on the grooved c...

Re: tires

It is false information that says you have to have the matching tire front to back in sets. I've been running different brands since the 70s and haven't crashed and burned. And I play hard on my wings in the twisty rides. I'm not on a 1500 any longer (5yrs on my 08 now) I don't think I want to, but ...

Re: tires

Michelin stopped making tires for wings years ago so you won't find one for the rear. Ride-on is the sealer balancer. Will it stop the leak? Depends on what the leak is from and where. Ride-on only will stop a leak in the center 3"-4" of tread, not the sides or rim or valve stem. You need to find th...

Re: Seat/saddle rental or try before you buy?

Stew
Unfortunately no rentals of seats out there, but as Andy said there are return refunds offered by some of the seat manufacturers.
Most folks that have reported the likes of the Ultimate brand and the Russell brand seats have high reguards for them.
Check their websites.
