EXHAUST PIPE LEAK

IMG_20200511_081357595.jpg IMG_20200511_081537222.jpg I must have bounced/scratched my exhaust pipe. I have a small hole in it. It doesn't really bother me because I kind of like hearing it a little better. Is it a bad thing to not fix it? I think I remember years ago with car engines that it can b...

Re: Welding Plastic

If you're interested in a low heat alternative, one can just use ABS primer and cement, applied to the inside of the panel to be repaired, to make a fairly durable bond. ABS cement is just ABS plastic held in liquid form by a quickly evaporating solvent, (acetone). You can utilize electrical tape t...

Lost my Side cover Goldwing Emblem

so bummed out. Last time I was working on my bike my auto creeper fell down on the bike. Scratched my windshield and side cover (could have been way worse). I was on a ride the other day. My right side battery cover emblem is gone. Anyone know where I can find IMG_20200321_161146923.jpg one (95 1500i)

Re: HEADLIGHT WATERPROOF BULB RUBBERS

Thanks Sadanorakman. Good to know. I haven't done it yet but I will be checking on that. When I do aluminum work (roofs) I use SOLAR SEAL. Don't know whats in it but does the same thing. Way better that any silicone.

Re: Electrical Connection LED Headlight

Thanks Scott. I'm going to need to practice doing it again. Can't seem to get the hang of it. I'm using the solder with the flux in it, like I have seen people do on you tube. Doesn't seem to suck into and over the wires. I know there's a fine line between not hot enough and too hot. I have like 8 c...

Holy Crap on a Cracker. They only last 140 hours. They're going back today. Thanks for the insight. MIKE B. I went to Amazon and read up on a bunch of reviews. They do have 12 month warrantee.

Thanks Charlie1hourse. I just sent him a message. Do they have a warrantee? Pretty cold up there the last couple days. It got down in the high 30's (at night) 300 miles south west of you. I have a buddy up there.

Re: Electrical Connection LED Headlight

Really? You mean like on start up? "Please" elaborate. Are they going to overheat? I have to wait 2 days for a connector to come in before I light them up. I'll take them back tomorrow if they are going to blow that quick.
