Re: Hard Starting Cold

Furthering my hard starting issue, I have discovered the cause. Typically, I use the 1500 for work related commuting. Almost all interstate even though I don't like taking the slab, but time is the issue. I usually go about 80 -85 mph ( shhhh.. I didn't say that). That could be about 70% of the time...

Re: Vetter Trunk

Thanks for the info. Does your trunk lights do both braking and running? The PO of the trunk apparently cut a conductor off the bulb. So I think I can have 4 running light and brake on the outside? Or 4 brake lights and two running lights on the outside. Cheers

Vetter Trunk

Gents, According to the installation instruction for the wiring of the Vetter trunk, it says the lights are running lights. Has anybody put dual filament bulbs to make them brake and running? My bike is a 77 so it has the reserve lighting system. Would that affect operation? Cheers

Re: Vetter Top box and saddle bags

Greetings , yes the turn signals are to be relocated. Hard to see in the picture, but seems the yellow turn signals have a different extension than stock. Hoping the stick signals would work. Cheers

Vetter Top box and saddle bags

Greetings Folks, WHile trying to figure out the saddlebags, the instructions say to remove the turn signals on my 77 GL1000. And to replace with the "stalk" which allegedly is Vetter part and I don't have. Can't the turn signals assembly simply be transplanted to the new location on the vetter struc...

Re: Windjammer bracket Modification

Re: Windjammer bracket Modification

Here are some pix. You will notice the vetter bracket with the hose clamp temporarily in its final position. Next pix is the Hondaline crashbar pivoted over the bracket. About an inch overlap. No room on crash bar for adjustment. I probably will ha e to trim a bit off the bottom.

Windjammer bracket Modification

Greetings Group,

I have a GL1000 bracket. However, the crash bars (Hondaline) are impacting the placement. I think I can grind off about an inch off of the bottom of the bracket to make it fit. Has anyubody else done this before? Cheers

Re: Help for a new owner - Please!

I had the same issue on a 77 GL1000. Rusty tank and I knew it was gonna be a problem. I used a chemical called "Rust Out". ( If I recall correctly). It works like a charm. Filled up the tank and let it sit and then siphoned it out. Amazing stuff. Not cheap. 6 gallons would cost you maybe 120 buckero...

Re: Multi meter help please

No I haven't quite figured I tout yet. Looking at the picture of the manual and shown above, it shows a pigtail. Don't know exactly why this has to be this way and why can't one simply got the separated connectors to read resistance. Need to pull out the wire as shown? On another note, maybe I was r...

Yes, the weird thing about it was I would get a strong spark when this happened before. Even then 6 plug wires at the same time?

Re: Replacing pulse generators

Thanks Erdeniz, I didn't realize that a vacuum input goes to the ECu for timing. Is it a sensor? But I guess would this happen at start up? It only happens then. It ignites in the exhaust and seems to do it in the carburetor too? As if it is like choking. This problem has been rampant for some time ...

Re: Replacing pulse generators

Well. My bike sporadically misfires. Then it runs good. Backfires and like a detonation in the carbs seem to point to a ignition source that isn't timed right. So thinking it may be the generators. The only thing that does the timing. Since the problem is sporadic , I got to start somewhere cheers

Re: Toy haulers.

Thanks main Viking. When you say bikes, what kind to plop in there ? With a 12 foot partition? How wide is the inside? There are so many kinds of 5th wheels out there, that I am getting lost. Looked at Dutchman, Jayco, forest river, shhhhsh... getting a headache. Like your Dutchman ? Mighty obliged.
