Dunlop Elite 4 tires

Trying to decided on what type of tire to buy. What would you recommend - bias or radial tires on a GL1500?

Re: How to bleed or flush your clutch

I flushed mine last week as I had problems shifting. Fairly easy task but nice to see detailed pics before attempting.

Re: Speedometer

I changed my speedometer and works perfectly. I'm glad it wasn't the speedometer hub gear! Thanks for the well documented pics as it was great to read before attempting it!

Re: Rear tire blow out

Glad to hear you both are ok! I too had a blown rear tire last year. It took months to heal my sore bones (no broken ones) and get my bike in shape & confidence back. It is something that stays with you but have to shake off. Good luck and hope you get another wing!

Speedometer

Hi there!

My 97 GL1500's odometer & speedometer stopped working yesterday. I've checked all the fuses and none are burnt. I've noticed that the turn signals work however do not shut off after turning. Any suggestions?

Re: GL1500 - blue smoke

I checked the coolant and no oil was found. It must gave been in the exhaust as mentioned earlier as I took it for a run and it went away - wonderful feeling!

Thanks for the replies!

GL1500 - blue smoke

Hi there! I had an accident with my 97 GL1500 last summer. I had a flat tire while riding 50kmh and crashed - no broken bones but scraps & bruises. The bike laid on its side for a few days while in the tow company yard before I could pick back up. I've since repaired most parts and have started the ...

Re: How to Fill Lost Lettering on Your Bike

I just got back from the dollar store to get some red and white crayons. Did the ignition, light & starter switches as well as the Honda logo in red - looks awesome!! I'll spray it with a clear coat acrylic as soon as the weather warms up.
