Re: What to do with an extra Goldwing?

BTW, where is this K12LT located right now? Southern California. My buddy will be picking it up in about a month. He said he lill be taking it to an independent shop for a clutch repair before he motors his way up the coast to his new home. He thinks the fuel pump is clogged, which is why it doesn'...

Re: Tires

Although stated that it's simple, the simple truth is that it's an 'old wives tale' that the crown of the road causes the wear. Although, to some minds, it seems logical, it simply is not true... Can you imagine the odd wear it has on car tires? Towards the end of their life, your car should be lea...

Re: What to do with an extra Goldwing?

... I just should have held out for a K1200lt. My friend has a K12LT. I can see it from my den just sitting on my patio. He is moving to Oregon and had to trailer it to my house since he can't seem to get it started... again! I think that Beemer has been inoperative longer than is has been ridden. ...

Re: Trouble with cb

Just spray your favorite multi purpose lubricant (wd40, pb blaster, ky jelly) on it while pushing it in and out. I have the same issue with the hazards button and once in a while i gotta lube it up. While this sounds helpful. you should seriously refrain from using WD40 on the controls. It will att...

Re: Radio

When the FCC switched us to digital TV signals it seemed like every store was selling the conversion boxes to go between your antenna and your analog television. I wonder if anybody marketed a similar product for radios?

Re: Pics of painted chrome garnish above headlight?

I have the bra that was offered for the 1500 and blends in well with the black color of the bike. I know it isn't the same as painting it, but it is sort of color matched so you get some indication of how it would look.

Re: right handlebar switch

Yes, they will work. The only difference is the SE will have two more wires for the illumination. I'm not sure if the 1500A has the wiring available in the harness, though. If it does it will be a bonus for you!

OUCH!!! I feel your pain. My first panel "loss" was due to some jerk who stole it while I was shopping at a Wal*Mart. It set off my alarm, but these days nobody wants to get involved for fear of a lawsuit. The second one left me as I was on my way home from work... at 75mph on the freeway. This last...

It seems the number is added with a photoshop like computer program, when you zoom-in you can see the color and contrast difference.
Or a label from a Brother P-Touch machine.

More than likely under the trunk! I relocated mine with short extensions. The flasher relays are pretty robust and seem to have an extremely low failure rate, but when they fail it is a PIA to get to them.

I disassembled the switch and cleaned and lubricated it. But you get to see what is in there. Admin has a great tip about putting the switch in a big plastic bag because there are springs that will attempt to escape.

Re: Looking for lighting suggestions, I dont mind a lot but lets not go to crazy

Replacing the incandescent bulbs with LEDs will be the quickest way to freshen up the look. The other way would require either modifying the existing parts yourself (like the reflector panels on the saddlebags and fairing) or purchasing aftermarket replacement parts. If you are handy with a solderin...

Re: new tires for my 1500

I put on a set of bias ply E4s in December and now have a little over 4K on them. They have a slightly harder compound in the center which should give you good mileage. The handling is just as good if not better than the E3 in the turns and our rain grooves don't seem to affect the 1500 at all. I wa...
