Re: Gl 1500 reversing problem

I would have thought the diagnostics would have revealed something... I read about a fellow having problems with his reverse and it was traced to a bad connection of a plug under the truck box... Have you checked all your connections to make sure they are sound... It's been a while since I had my 15...

Re: Gl 1500 reversing problem

Have you replaced the starter recently??? How fast the does the starter motor pulse??? Almost sounds like a broken starter gear if your not feeling any movement at all which is why I asked if you replaced the starter motor as it is easy to break the gear when installing a new starter... Do you have ...

Re: Steering head bearings

All Balls bearings IMO are superior to the OEM ball bearings as they are tapered roller bearings, and as such, can absorb much more punishment that standard ball bearings... When I installed mine I preloaded them to about 24 ft pounds and they are working well... Still, it's been a while now and pro...

Re: 1800 LED Headlights; SoCal vs. EC

I'm running the EC LED's and have been very happy with their performance... I installed them on low beams only, as I use a modulator on my high beams and didn't want to have to replace that as well, otherwise I would have switched high beams too... They REALLY light up the road in front of you - muc...

Re: Trike conversion rear tire

I have an 84 Aspencade with a trike conversion, yes training wheels. Had it about three months. I am in need on a new rear drive tire. Does it have to be a motorcycle tire? As it is not leaning anymore would a car tire work? Doesn't have to be a trike to utilize a car tire... "Darkside" usage (runn...

Well, I'm not an auto mechanic but I do have over 50 years of electronic experience... In the world of electronics, potentiometers (TPS') have 3 basic tapers... Linear, Log, (logarithmic) and reverse log... I would expect the TPS on most machines to be linear, but this would depend on how the softwa...

Re: Probably dumbest question ever

First of all, there are no dumb questions!!! The only "dumb question" is the one not asked... If you don't know, ask, that's how we all learn...

Now that said, I don't know the answer to your question but I too have seemingly learned a new fact today so thank you for that...

you may be experiencing "brake shudder"... This was supposed to be fixed with the brake recall but some riders still report the condition after the recall has been done...
