Re: Going back to OEM from floor board & heal/toe shifter

FWIW...I'm thinking about the Kuryakyn ISO mini wings vs. the Stock pedals... sort of an in-between choice.... https://www.jpcycles.com/product/504-009/kuryakyn-gloss-black-iso-wing-mini-floorboard?mrkgcl=444&mrkgadid=2972141417&rkg_id=h-fb2b13a4805aefcc8ddc84498aaea9ff_t-1519323513&utm_source=googl...

Re: Rebound Piston Rings 1500 Aspencade

If you're gonna replace the springs, you might as well just rebuild them... that way everything matches up...

Re: Trailer size for hauling one to two GL1500's.

Most of the Small toy haulers will haul two bikes, and I think your truck will handle it, Honestly, a good used on only a little bit more expensive than a cargo trailer, and it probably will have beds, seats, etc.
