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:

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

So I bought this combat the virus, and it's just fantastic at disinfecting....nothing survives the 212 degrees of heat. https://www.harborfreight.com/1500-watt-steam-cleaner-kit-63042.html and well I've got to thinking that the wing is going to really benefit from this. Don't have the time right now...

So my turn signal switch is acting funky, by that I mean when I activate the switch it puts one of the from marker/signal amber lights out and when it's night time I can see I have one side out, primarily the right hand/passenger side....I fiddle with the switch and pull the knob to make a left sign...

Re: Custom GL1500 called Hat Trick/Youtube link to finished build----Classy Cafe Style

Not my thing either, but yes it is put together quite nicely for the tastes of the individual that built it. I figured I'd share it here since that's what it's all about in this forum.

Love the the stock Gl1500 as Mother Honda created it....

I think this is what you are looking for.

I've lost a few myself, be very careful when you take the front calipers off as they fall right to the ground.
