Re: Another radio mod

I wasn't aware the radio was that waterproof, having dismantled it for the aux input mod, didn't look like it was able to withstand torrential downpour, I bow to your superior knowledge. The town I go to in England, you would come back to your bike and find all the radio knobs missing. But the poin...

Re: Polk DB401's and GL1500 Aspy

I have them currently mounted where the speaker is pointed towards the open grill and the back/magnet is facing outwards which is what fits into the bottom cavity. (and in my case is bumping against said cavity and ...

Re: My 1993 GL1500 won't idle, can someone help me?

When I say rebuilt, I mean I removed all the jets that are removable EXCEPT the pilot screws. I didn't touch the pilot screws. I flushed every passage using carb cleaner and air pressure. I visually confirmed the jets passages are open. I replaced the float valves including the needles and the floa...

Re: My 1993 GL1500 won't idle, can someone help me?

I am not sure what air pilot screws are. I am assuming you mean the pilot screws and like I said, I didn't touch them. When you say you rebuilt the carbs twice. did you completed strip them all jet taken out cleaned all the jet and small holes and air ways ? The two air jet in the front of the carb.

Re: Mystery coolant leak

The leaking coolant sits in the bottom of the front cowl. so it may not show a damp patch on the ground. and when your riding it will be blown out. you may notice it if you move the bike before riding it or working on it.

Re: Rear Brake Issue

When you refitted the brake master cylinder did you fit the heat deflector plate between the cylinder and exhaust pipe. the fluid is getting hot and expanding causing the callipers to close. also check the front one as there linked it may be binding causing the same effect.
