Here's a rider with the opposite problem. A trade may be in order.

Re: Garmin 595 with Tpms sensors.

So I had an issue with Garmin 395 when I first installed. Please see this: https://goldwingdocs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=44560&p=275643#p275643 Note in that linked post that the Garmin Tech Support was not able to fix my problem on my first call. The phone answerer claimed to own a bike and se...

Re: Turn signals stop after 10 seconds

I remember reading once that if you hold the switch for a couple seconds it extends the duration or even cancels the auto-off function but you know, I've never tested this. I just got in the habit of holding the switch in the on position until committed to the turn and pushing the manual cancel as s...

Size? Springs about four inches long? Looks like the mounts for the lower cowl cornering lamps/driving lights.

Re: Brake Light Modulator

So, memory is the second thing to go. Seem to remember more than four. You were in the right place looking up at the levers for the trunk and saddlebags, above the license plate, they are in those recessed holes and have JIS/phillips screws. Those screws are uncooperative going back in BTW. Also the...

Re: Brake Light Modulator

First, may seem to be a nitpick but brake lights have flashers not modulators. A modulator reduces from full power to partial power and is inactive in low light. Brake light flashers do not have this capability. Important to keep the nomenclature correct to help people understand what headlight modu...

Re: MotoBatt MBTX24U Motorcycle Battery for GL1500

I bought one of these last week for my 1987 Gl1200I. Bought it online from Amazon, as I have Prime and the Amazon distribution center is in my local metropolitan area. Battery arrived DOA, and refused to accept a charge. Notified Amazon, they issued a full refund a couple of hours later and told me...

Re: Looking for 1800 advice, tough year!

Dealing with insurance claims can certainly test one's patience. First if YOUR bike is not currently under YOUR control, go get it. Pay for towing if need be but get it in your garage. You have the title, you do not buy it back from the insurance company. Be there when appraiser looks at it. Tell th...

For Sale: Ultimate Seat for Valkyrie Interstate

Great seat for an Interstate. Four piece set with rider and passenger seats, adjustable rider backrest with mounting bolts and the passenger trunk mounted backrest. I think it will fit on a Standard as well obviously without the trunk backrest. Includes a rain cover. Not the best pix but let me know...

So I bought this Kompact Kamp motorcycle camper trailer last fall with every intention of restoring, upgrading and cruising off across the U.S. (Then Came Bronson). Two out of three done but I found a trailer I like better. I replaced the entire wiring harness and installed all new LED lights. The r...

Re: Goldwing vs F6C interstate

The F6B isn't always louder than the Goldwing. It's that most have had some previous owner perform modifications. If completely stock exhaust, I personally would at least change the tailpipes to extend them back past the rear fender/panniers just to minimize any drone. If you find a bike you love ex...

Re: Innovv K2 Dual Camera System Review

A couple thoughts. First, I ended up mounting under the trunk on my GL1800. I have not yet recorded with a trailer in place but now I going to have to try it out. If you use the GoPro type mounts, you could always keep it close when you don't have the trailer and add extensions and relocate to a bet...

Re: What model is this ?

As far as I can see, the only paint scheme available in 1990 which included blue paint was indeed a two-tone scheme, viz. Commadore Blue Metallic / Triton Blue Metallic. However, the colours listed for 1989 include a single tone scheme, Dynastic Blue Metallic. http://www.rsbikepaint.com/en-us/colou...
