Re: Stereo for GL1200 Interstate

I noticed you uploaded the Wal-Mart stereo you purchases does it fit the port in the picture I uploaded ?? I see you have a 1984 GL1200 Aspencade. Aspencades are pretty different than Interstates, which is what I have. The electronis are very much different, and I have never seen how the stereos fi...

Re: 1987 gl 1200 I speedo cable

What is the best way to replace the speedo cable ? Good question. I was doing a search as to how to do this just now and found your question. On another site it said to remove the headlight and the back of the speedo would be accessible through there. They were mistaken. It is not accessible throug...

Re: Overheating

Great information from all. I have a silly question... Upon removing my lower fairings this past off season to put in new fork seals, new timing belts, and a few other items, I did not pay attention to where the rubber on the lower fairings was to be put when I reinstalled them. :oops: After reading...

Speedometer Mechanical Sending Unit Lubrication

I am replacing my speedometer cable today and am wondering if anyone lubricates inside the sending unit before attaching the cable.




This is a pic from the unit of an 81 400 just so you can see the unit better.

Re: Of mice and me!!!

This may be well known, but I'll post it just in case some people have never heard of it. I use Irish Spring soap to thwart of mice. Slice it into thin bits and place them all over on your bike. Up the exhaust too. AND use Bounce fabric softener sheets (It has to be Bounce brand, not knock off brand...

Re: 1987 GL1200 fork oil

By the way did you find what type of atf to add? I use Maxima ATF Type F 10 Weight Viscosity. Some people like it a bit stiffer and use 15 weight. Some like it a bit softer and go with 5w or even mix half 10w with half 5w which gives you a 7.5 weight. It all depends on personal preference and some ...
