Re: CB Radio

There are still local radio shops? Yes, who do you think work on police and commercial two way radio's? The alternative is for the OP to purcahse a swr meter and do the check himself. I just installed a J&M CB on my ST1300 and I set the swr myself. However, when I installed the CB on my Goldwing, I...

Re: CB Radio

Viking, Deputy, and Andy, thank you very much! I turned down the squelch and finally got some "noise". Haven't tuned the SWR yet, but will do so soon. Also, I am a newbie at cb-ing.

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.

Re: Radio antenna

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

I have had a RDL seat on 3 Goldwing's, the first two were 1500's and the seat had a velour insert. It was the most comfortable seat I have ever ridden. My current 1800 has a vinyl (FAKE LEATHER) RDL on it. The first 1500 had the seat on it when I purchased it and it was moved to the later model 1500...

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

Re: Removing Multi Display connector

Been a while since I had it off. The mention of the screwdriver trick brought back a memory and I was able to get it off. Thanks for the responses. Then using a pick, I was able to pry out the broken piece of the old tab. Problem solved!
