Re: Loose throttle housing

Every 1500 has that 'slack' in the housing, left and right. So yes, you have to learn to live with it..

Break in dashboard cover repair

Has anybody ever repaired the break succesfully? I had the cover stored for months while the bike was at the paintshop and ofcourse
it fell when i wanted to put it back :oops: It's one of the parts that is NOT made of ABS naturally, that would have been to easy, or is it?.........

Re: URGENT BRAKE PROBLEM

Bleeding 'by the book' is first beed the front and then the back. First the longer line and then the shorter one. Do not attempt to do it together at once......
And speed bleeders are fairly useless if you you have empty brake lines, they only 'work' properly when replacing the fluids.

Re: Thermostat housing cover

Nope, no certain way to turn the housing. 'Just' unscrew the three bolts and lift it off.
That explanation sounds easier than really it is :roll:

Re: Fork Caps are Tight

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: 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

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
