Re: 1983 GL1100A digital dash illumination light bulb

The link for bulbs still works after 7 years....that's good, my question is, were the led bulbs on the dash overbearing....would you prefer led or OEM tungsten?

Just curious....nice GL1500 upgrade!!!

Whoever buys this it would be nice to hear about quality of both the helmet and the bluetooth....I've already got a modular helmet, an Evoline by Shark, which I simply love. Sena makes great bluetooth gear, I too am curious as to how their integrated helmets are.

Re: Turn signal housing removal and bench rebuild....has anybody done it?

A shot of pb blaster into the switch from the space between the switch and the housing is all it took for the switch to work correctly. All is well, turn signals and running lights function as they were intended to too from honda.

Had nothing to lose so it all worked out.

Re: Deep cleaning via steam cleaning....Can't wait!!

212 degrees is up close, will test the steam steam from a distance to minimize chances of damage otherwise I will be using it on the rims and steel surfaces.

It's a really good tool. I will post my results.

Here's a video of similar brand:
