Re: Are These Stock 1500 Fork Springs???

The Progessive spring has 50 coils.
The spring in your photo has 40 coils.
They are not the same.

Re: Synthetic Motor oil

Save your money. I have been using Mobil 1 since 1995. I just switched to Chevron Delco 400 LE. The engine is quieter and the shifting is quiet too. Especially from 1st to 2nd gear. Just did this on Dec. 31, 2011. The Delco is under $13.00 at Wal-Mart. Also, I used the Wal-Mart SUPER TECH filter # S...

Re: Whats the best 1500 to buy

98 SE, 99 SE or 2000 SE.
Only thing I did not like on the 99 SE was the white background instrument panel. Hard to see in some light or no light. Before 98 the engine guards are uncomfortable but can be changed to 98 through 2000 style.
I have owned 95SE, 99SE and now the 2000SE all great machines.

Re: Battery being drained

Got the alternator back. Guy at the shop said the rotor got hot & had failed. He really felt bad about it because he said he should have caught it the first time. Put it back on, and @ 2500rpm showing about 13.5 volts. Kicked on highbeam, radio, stepped on brake, it decreased for an instant, but we...

Re: turn signals wont cancel manually (gl 1500)

I had the same problem. Only cancel manually when I bumped the switch to the opposite turn. Next they quit working all together. I tried to trouble shoot for 2 months. Gave in and took to Honda shop with a Switch Assembly I got off Ebay. They found wires crushed on the handle bars. They installed th...

Re: rear blinkers

Try swapping out the flasher relay with the turn signal relay under the rear trunk. Remove screws and trunk will raise enough to swap or replace one.

Re: Need Cassette adapter for mp3/Ipod review

What you going to hook up? I have purchased a Griffin FM modulater from Amason and It plugs in to my Sansa MP3 player. The sould is good and the volume control on the bike work great.

VIDEOS WON'T PLAY

I downloaded videos for 1500 and all I get is the sound. Did I do something wrong or do I need to use a specific video player?
Thanks ahead for all suggestions.
