Re: What it is?

Welcome to the forum. Regarding your question, what ct1500 said. Shortly after buying my GL1500 I also found one of those bouncing around in the trunk. Seems the little plastic clips just under the knob tend to break off allowing the assy to pop back out of its assigned location. May be a common pro...

Re: Innovv K2 Dual Camera System Review

I have a different brand but they are somewhat similar. You will invariably end up with 95% of files of boring road and 5% worth keeping. In video mode, it records in blocks of time. So when you go back to review the files, if you know the time frame you want to keep, you'll be able to narrow it dow...

Re: Camera System install

As yes the second image is correctly oriented. The DVR is mounted upside down on the starboard side of the trunk shell with hook & loop. I can pull it off, pivot forward and flat into the correct usable orientation within the slack of the cables.

Re: Kuryakan ISO grips

BTW. Except for the GL1800, every installation I have done has had one side or the other that needed to be shimmed with electrical tape. Instructions cover this method. You may also need to re-glue at some point. Just don't be surprised.

Re: SOS PRIORITY LITES

I was previously unfamiliar with this brand but do I understand that the rear turnsignals are shining amber as running and brake lights? As John said above, the LED bulbs can cause issues. In fact you would need to replace the stock flasher just for normal turnsignal operation. You can install a res...

Re: Rivco Air Horns (Video)

So I will add one "Thumbs up" to the RIVCO horns. Some history. All below installs used relays with trigger wire connected to the OEM horn circuit and the OEM horns left in place except as noted. On my GL1200 I added a self contained Wolo Big Boy in the fairing. Much better than OEM. On my GL1500 I ...

Re: Trailer tires

Do they make radials in that size? Not sure that I would worry either way. Ply rating is usually associated with load rating. I'm thinking you won't need heavy. Also 6-ply will run a nit "harsher" but 6-ply may wear a little better or last longer. Again, IMHO, not a noticeable difference. You can of...

Re: Intermittent Cruise Control

Instead of jostling the levers, give them a gentle push forward. They have switches as opposed to sensors. Push the either lever forward then slowly pull it back. You should hear two clicks. One is for CC cancel and the other is for the brake light or starter circuit enable (clutch side). Look under...

Changing high beam bulbs on a GL1800 requires some disassembly, patience and tricks. I have used dowels, small flexible tubing and three different long reach needle nose pliers.

Re: Auto Tire on the Rear, GL1800

The GL1800 rear wheel looks like an automobile wheel. Any decent tire, car or bike shop should be able to do a dynamic balance. However, I have used Dynabeads with good success and expect Counteract to be just as good. Now have Centramatic balancers that seem pretty nice as well.

Yes, yes and yes.

There is a mod to reverse the fans if you want. Generally they never come on going down the road, only parked or very low speed. At low speed, do you want the heat blowing forward or back on your legs?
