Re: Progressive Rear Shocks

Well, I just wanted to say Thank You for all the advise and tips on the wing. Solved the issues and its running great, but its no longer mine. If I get booted (no drama meant by this) cause I bought a 04 Harley Road King today I'll understand. I have learned sooo much about the GL1200's from ya'll a...

Re: When it rains it pours

Well, looks like I might have figured it out, I figured I either have to loose weight quick or adjust to a tighter setting on the new progressive shocks, decided adjusting the shocks would be quicker :) and the test ride agreed with me. I will take it out tomorrow for a longer test run, find some ra...

Re: When it rains it pours

Some good news, Shinko is replacing the tire, they don't want the old tire back (which makes me wonder if they knew there is a problem with at least some of their 230 tourmaster tires) all I have to pay is $19 shipping on the replacement tire. Took everything apart today checked - rechecked - relube...

Re: When it rains it pours

Before you take it all apart make sure that the rim is turning true. Also, check to see if the tire has a high spot if the rim is running true. I hate to see you take it all apart and it is just a bad tire. The last thing that I would check or replace is the bearing. I just put one back on the road...

Re: When it rains it pours

me and my brother actually checked for this, the bead line is even all the way around on both sides of the tire, so pretty sure that's not the issue.

When it rains it pours

I replaced the rear shocks, brakes, rear and front tires and front brakes. All back together and test rode. Heard a noise in the rear end and after tarring the saddlebags and covers off again I put it up on the center stand and put it in gear and noticed the "new" rear tire had a wobble. In checking...

Re: police .modulator

Sounds like just a hard headed "officer" to me and I'd go to court with it for sure. In the "owners manual" section here there is info on it if you don't have it. They are legal in all 50 states. Good Luck ! http://goldwingdocs.com/Docs/Motorcycle ... -66010.pdf

Re: Progressive Rear Shocks

matching front tire got here today, going to try and get it on tomorrow. I don't know if its because I was use to the blown out rear shocks and the worn out rear tire, but on the 15 mile road test the rear felt a little squirrely, not much but noticeable. I checked back at home, nothing leaking or l...

Progressive Rear Shocks

My coil over progressives should be here tomorrow, I never ride anyone and I'm just a little :) 0ver 200lbs with only a 30" inseam, what would the best setting be? I'm thinking on using the lowest setting, anyone use these on a GL1200? Any suggestions will be welcomed.

Re: Miss when cold

My GL1200 does this when cold, but after it warms up it runs fine. Fuel mileage is good and no leaks, I'm guessing the carbs may be due a good cleaning and they are just a little out of sync. For now as its not fouling the spark plugs I'm going to let it warm up and as stated above then ride it.

I missed 3 and like others I disagree with the new asphalt vs old washed and dry asphalt.

Re: 85 Aspencade Air Shocks

Yup, the "how to's" mentioned above are easy to follow. I just decided to change out the air shocks for progressive coil over shocks, my GL1200 interstate doesn't have an on board air compressor so it was an easy decision for me and much cheaper than new air shocks.
