Re: Side Mirror About to Fall Off - Sol'n ?

My right mirror was ripped off at a crash recently . I repaired it by filling the holes with a MEK/ABS mixture and put the screws back in. A few days later all was
hardened out and since then works flawlessly. Do not over think things please, most of the times the simple solution works best........

Re: new (to me) 2000 gl1500. but had coolant leak?

I had the same thing when i just bought my '94. The hose clamp at the thermostat housing was loose. All it took (after a long time searching) was retightening the clamp............................

Re: epoxy sealant/ adhesive

Iv'e used ABS 'shavings' and MEK in wich the ABS melts and together it forms a ABS glue. This worked very good for my repairs last winter; almost all fixing points of the fairing were cracked or damaged in years of riding bad roads, but all is well now

I think your holes were incorrect, not the M7 bolts that were delivered with the brace. Mine was perfect with the M7 bolts...........

Re: Fuel hatch lock broken

That thought crossedmy mind too, but it's made for boats and outdoor use. Plus, while i'm driving not much water can come in. As a bonus for me, my bike is resting indoors and usually doesn't get wet. When it does i'm on vacation or on a tour with friends who are all afraid of riding in the wet :lol...

I wouldn't take a chance on this one. The GL1500 is not listed as a bike on wich this part would fit on partzilla, so for me that's a no go

Fuel hatch lock broken

The lock of my fuel hatch is broken. I've replaced it for the lock from the right pocket, but now i don't have a working lock over there ofcourse. Is there a known solution for this problem? I am not looking for a replacement lock as it would require a new key too. Simple solutions often work the be...

Re: HUNTING IDLE, DEAD SPOT OFF IDLE

You did synchronise the carbs, did you? I know that the earlier year models had an issue with the carbs regarding idle and surging, maybe make a search on the sit in that direction?

If you think the shifter pivot is too expensive for your taste you can always produce one for yourself. I did it and am using it for 20000km without problems.

New colour for my Wing

We (my wife and i) have been thinking what to do; buy a 'new' GL1800, or another bike. I must confess i really dislike the 1800's appearance and its fairly cramped seating position (for me) so the choice was made to keep the old lady for a while and invest some coin in to it. Below the result and i ...
