No sense spending $500 or so and getting the wrong ones. WingStuff.com has them for $21.95 a pair under part number AO293646DC for your bike Saber Cycle has them for $16.00 a pair under part number 93-637 for your bike The pictures in both catalogs look like both places are selling the identical se...

Re: Chrome clutch and brake levers

They do not interchange but the 88-89 is the same as a GL1200 if that helps.

Re: Will it fit & work?

Probably not relevant to OP question but the construction of the tire is a determining factor in establishing the load range. Type of construction as well as number and material of plys.

Re: 595lm zumo

Bill,

Thanks for posting. I just realized I posted mine is a 396 when it is in fact a 395. Mine has a rubber plug on the bottom that covers a small RCA type plug.

Re: Fuel mileage question

I agree with above that mileage really falls off when you get above 70, especially with the big windshield. Also, once you know what kind of mileage you get, don't rely on the gas gauge to tell you when to fill up. Most of them read empty way too early. If your low fuel light works correctly, that u...

Not sure your familiarity with this beautiful machine so if my questions seem obvious or simplistic, I apologize in advance. The windshield does slide up and down a couple inches.

Re: Wanted Radio Blank in Black for a GL1500

The part number you provided is for a snap on cover that goes over the radio controls in brown. Based on your bike info in your avatar, you have a 1995 Aspencade which should have part number 83170-MN5-000, color ZA for Cosmopolitan (dark) Gray.

Re: installing a power socket

Agree with MikeB depending on what you need. The GL1800 trunk is small to start with and a pigtail can be more accommodating. If you want to mount to trunk lid, there are not as many choices as you may first think. The inner lid is very close to the real lid and there are bosses that hold the passen...

My experience with MottBatt in my GL1500 is exactly opposite of Scott's. I had a previous post about my dissatisfaction with their AGM. I went back to cheap batteries on the GL1500 with plan to replace them when needed. My Valkyrie I just replaced with a YUASA AGM and we'll see how that goes. Gl1800...

Re: Help removing rear tire

Extra hands certainly can help. Once it "releases" you'll be able to lift it up chest high in one swing. I had a five foot long 2x4 ready to prop under the hitch. I was then able to tie it safely to the overhead of the garage.

Go back to the linked post step 6. Sounds like you may not have pulled the correct bolts. You need to pop out the black round plugs about 1*1/2" diameter at the front of the saddlebag to see them. They hold the bottom of the rear subframe as well as one of the crash guard bolts(other guard bolt is v...
