Re: Anyone pulled a trailer?

I have pulled both a timeout camping trailer and a luggage trailer with two Goldwings without any problems. Just have to pack it carefully and watch where you go with it. Backing up is no fun.

Re: xm radio

I have mine mounted over the front brake master cylinder using a RAM mount. It works very well. I routed the anntenna lead to the rear of the bike and mounted it on one of the rear speaker covers. Over time the lead wire broke due to opening and closing of the trunk. I would recommend placing the an...

Re: Installing the DMC MP3 player model 9088

More information as well as some pictures would not be unwelcome. Where you ordered and how much your costs were could be topics of welcome information. Being familiar with the J&M product, which I have on my GL1800, I would not be putting it under the CD player in the lower trunk. I had mine there...

Re: GL1800 Start Issue

Did you replace the battery or just try and charge it? If the voltage drops below 11 Volts during the starting operation you will not have any spark. New battery for sure.

Re: Trike KIt

Thanks for the reply. I am looking at the 14" wheel models. I like the idea of being able to remove the trike kit easily and still be able to ride normally. Perhaps in a year or two.

Re: Garmin 595 with Tpms sensors.

I have a Tire Gard TPMS on my ST1300, It works without any problems. Did have to replace batteries once. I had this unit on two gold wings before I bought my Garmin Zumo 390.

If they are in the same location as the earlier 1800s, they are under the right engine side cover.

Re: Garmin 595 with Tpms sensors.

Has any one had success with the Garmin TPS? I just bought a Garmin 590 with the intention of adding the TPMS. But if no one has had any luck with them, I'm not wasting $70. I have a Zumo 390 that I have had on two bikes, both with TpMS without any problems other than having to change the sensor ba...

Re: engine shuts off at idle when hot

Check the coolant level. It shouldn't get hot with you come to a stop. If it is, you may have a thermostat or water pump problem. Do the fans come on?

Might want to check the water level in the battery too. If you need to add water use only pure water. No additives/ no sports drink.
FYI, don't know about your bike, but all of mine have sealed batteries in them. Suspect, most GW's do as well.

Check your battery connections and make sure your battery is fully charged. Also, check your kill switch. Make sure it is set to run.

Re: Fuel injectors cleaning?

If I want to clean my fuel system, I periodically put Half a Can of Seafoam in a tank of fuel and run it through, then add the rest of the can to the next fill up. I do this on all my bikes about twice per year.

Thanks for info. I can not think of anything much more scary than blowing a tire. In my 50+ years of riding bikes of various sizes and models, I have never blown a tire yet.

Can’t say if Avon redesigned the tire or not but I have had three sets of them all with good mileage and no problems with separations.
