Re: alternator question

Thanks everyone for all the help with the(lactrical high output)alternator install questions. It ended up to be a pretty easy install. I think it was harder to get the old one out than it was to put the new one in. Its running well and has a good charge,now I need to ride it and see how it performs.

Re: alternator question

I also got new rubber dampers to install. Do the nipples go in toward motor or out?

alternator question

I think i'm having trouble with alternator charging battery. Background: I have a newer MOTTOBATT installed which has been on a battery tender for almost all winter. On the 17th of March went for a 300 mile ride with some stop and go (not much). Got back home and did not put it back on the charger. ...

Re: led bulbs

I used these in the trunk side lights as well as the 2 bulbs on the back of the trunk, in between the tail lights. They worked great, but a few of the sockets needed to be tightened up a bit. I used a tiny flat screwdriver to pry the contacts a little closer together, then inserted the led.https://...

Is there an led replacement bulb for the trunk running lights? I think the OEM's are 12v 3w wedge bulbs.
Thanks

I know you stated that all 4 terminals were connected internally. I was wondering if you could hook up a battery tender jr to the other 2terminals?

Re: Screw in the tire

My question is can you (should you) plug a tire while running them with balance beads? Then replace said tire at the earliest chance you get.

Re: 94 gl1500 speedometer bouncing wildly and screeching

For the speedo head I cleaned it real good with wd-40 then aired it out with the air hose then I used a dry graphite lube with a little wd-40 to get it to spread a little easier and for the speedo cable I used a spray white lithium grease. Went for a short ride yesterday and so far so good.

Re: 94 gl1500 speedometer bouncing wildly and screeching

Update: I found the problem to be the speedometer head. I cleaned it, lubed it, and put it back together. Took it for a test ride and so far no problems. A huge thanks to Wing Admin for the how to's it helped a lot with taking it apart and putting it back together.
Thanks

gl1500 speedometer

Can you rebuild a speedometer head or do I have to buy a new/used speedometer? If I buy a new/used speedometer is there a way to reset the odometer to current mileage on bike? Thanks

Re: 94 gl1500 speedometer bouncing wildly and screeching

I did some trouble shooting and I'm pretty sure the noise is coming from the speedometer head/gauge itself. Can I repair/replace the gears in the head or get a new/used speedometer? If I get a new/used speedometer can I reset that odometer to the original miles on the bike? Thanks Cleveland

94 gl1500 speedometer bouncing wildly and screeching

My 94 gl1500 speedometer was bouncing wildly and squealing loudly and then the inner cable broke. I replaced the cable completely(new inner and outer) but I still get the wild bounce and squeals. The noise sounds like it is coming out of the top not down by the wheel. Any suggestions before I disass...

I have a leak from the clutch hose (I think) or clutch slave cylinder.I was wondering if the clutch slave cylinder was leaking would the leak show up down on the bottom end around the clutch cover? If the leak was in the clutch hose would it show up along the hose?
