Re: Motorcycle Lifts

Looks like a pretty nice lift but I would prefer one that has a wider stance. Your lifting nearly a #1000 bike when lifting a Wing and you want maximum lateral stability. My Handy Lift is over 20 years old and the only thing I have ever done to it is grease it, and install new seals about 2 years ag...

This Tire Watch TPMS was a pre production model that Fred Harmon helped develop and later reviewed. Read the link below for all the details. Was working when removed a few days ago. I am going trike and need a different system. See photos and article here https://www.gl1800riders.com/threads/tire-pr...

Re: Best GL1800 Maintenance DVD

Win 10 does not include any type of DVD player... Media player is included in the software but no DVD player is present in Media Player in Win 10, so your going to need to install some form of DVD player in your computer... I use VLC like the other poster and it works quite well with Fred's videos.....

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...

I'm running the EC LED's and have been very happy with their performance...
