Re: Listening to the gl1800 radio thru Bluetooth

Can you transmit with the CB using BT? I have an SMH10 and a Cardo G9 BT unit. I have tried it on the GL and find the volume lacking.

Re: valve stems

I agree with MikeB, I use the t valve stems on my ST1300 and on the rear of my GL1800, I will be converting the front of the GL from the 90* valve stem, which must be installed at an angle to clear the brake rotor, to the T valve stem when I put on a new tire this spring. I use tpms on both bikes an...

Re: Voyager Trike kit

Thanks for the advice and comments. I am not ready to go to 3 wheels yet, but most likely soon. The Voyager kit made by MTC seems to be a good compromise between two wheels and a trike. I see them on the street here once in a while. With the price even used, a trike commands, i.e. just saw 2005 GL18...

Re: Voyager Trike kit

Surprised at no response.

After filling up, I took off and nearly dumped the bike, but with much effort, ...

Re: Cross country trip suggestions

I am sure you are already into your trip, but CA, OR and WA are places to avoid right now due to the fires and smoke. National forests in CA are all closed right now. It's unfortunate because these 3 states have some of the most senic riding.

Thanks Bill. It shows as finding stations but no reception so, must assume it's the antenna. Previous owner had butchered the Garmin cabling so, not looking forward to seeing the mess.
If you don't already have one, get a service manual before you start disassembly of the plastic.

No, the shelter has to be removed to get to the radio wiring. Check the two plugs and the antenna connection to the radio.

Re: GL1800 ABS ECU ignition module

The earlier model ECM should work, but there may be some difference in emissions with the older unit. Your best bet is to get a new one and not risk a used one. www.partzilla,com
