Broken tabs on rear front fender on a 2013

Gents, Well, I am out there and trying to figure out how to fix the tabs on the rear front fender. I think one of the two nuts have become lost and in turn broke off one of the tabs. I believe the stress on lack of one of the tabs broke the other one. So..... the back front fender is a custom color....

Re: The Laws of Probability

Hey XJS. Yeah, got a few GW’s. This is for a 1993 GL1500. If I did my detective work right, I can’t see all three coils failing at the same time. If one coil did, I would think it would at least fire on 4 cylinders, albeit rough. Yes?

The Laws of Probability

Gents, I think I pretty much determined that my issue is ignition related. It happens intermittently and is therefore hard to diagnose. It is happening more frequently now and I guess I have to start changing some ignition parts. On the occasion that "Big Red" doesn't start there is backfiring in th...

Re: For you guys who change your own tires.

I have a No Mar changer and use the hitch mount. I don't have the room to mount it on the floor also. After you get it adjusted for the height of your vehicles, it works great. Yes, you do loose a little bit of space for the bar to move 360 degrees around the tire. But, most of the time when I get ...

Re: For you guys who change your own tires.

Thanks Mike B> SOme good info. Didn't think of temporarily placing it in the floor. What about the threads getting filled with dirt? I suppose the bolts can be inserted. I suppose that the issue would be how hard would it be to place it and remove it all the time.

For you guys who change your own tires.

Gents, Well, between my wife, kids and myself, our stable is up 7 bikes and two trikes. After much thought, I was thinking maybe its time to do my own tire changing. Number of reasons, primarily for cost benefits. Looking at some videos, seems the 1800 tires are a bit of a chore, but doable. I have ...

I bought my bike brand new in Indiana, so heaven knows why it was an emission bike. There are some extra stuff on these and was wonder...

Greetings Fellow Goldwingers. I posted before, but I get better info all the time. My bike starts 90 percent but 10% it doesn’t. During the 10% it does get spark albeit on the one cylinder that is easy to get to without taking the Tupperware off. During cranking I do not smell any gas. I Go away dep...

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

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...
