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!

Re: 78 and 79 Goldwings

My 78 had the mags. I think the only changes between 78 and 79 were the tail light and turn signal shapes. Do you have the registration tag on the steering head?

Re: Not a Good Day at the Gas Station (need a part)

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...

Sounds like the employee of the merchant was not trained to reject the sale or could have been in on the fraud.

You should try a wolf whistle. I read where wolves are the natural predators of deer. That would clear the area.

Re: Additional Lights - Need to be seen

You can't go wrong with a few more lights all around!
As far as the rear of the bike goes... there are also units that will initially flash your tail lights when you apply the brakes and then stay on steady. This is a good attention-getter.
