Re: 2010 GL1800 Software and Nav update

Oops forgot to mention: I used to use 2 CF card but now I only use one 4GB . Instead of making the maps over 2 GB I KEEP under 2 like 1.9GB by leaving some of the state and provinces that I know I'll near go to, and if I ever need these states or provinces I'll do it again leaving other out. For exa...

Re: 2010 GL1800 Software and Nav update

I've used a 4GB CF CARD on my 2010 airbag model sold it in November last year and bought a 2016 with 20k Km on it very easy to update the maps. Worked fine the only thing you have to do For 2010 and older is split the maps on 2 cards or leave some state out and do it on the existing card (2GB) The o...

Re: Pressurized Gas Tank

Thanks for the advise. I thought the vent was inside the neck, because we’re not supposed to fill the tank

Re: Pressurized Gas Tank

Never done any work yet, except wiring in a 12 volt cigarette lighter to charge electronic devices and wired the XM radio. I truly believe the problem was running the engine too long in the parking lot that heated the gasoline. But at the same time why the fumes never escaped through the neck vent. ...

Re: Pressurized Gas Tank

That makes sense because the bike run for long time in the sun. At first I thought it was the vent plugged but when I filled the tank to the neck and the fuel level kept staying at the same level that told me the vent it was fine.
Thanks for your input.

Re: Pressurized Gas Tank

thanks GoldWingrGreg, the tanks was half full when this happened, when I filled the tank after the incident I filled to the neck to see if fuel will come up to the top of the neck but didn't. so I assumed the vent its clear.

Re: Installing the DMC MP3 player model 9088

As longs there is room on the card you can put 1 to 1000s of songs in a single file, the disadvantage is you can not advance to the next song because the player treats the file as a single song. I have many of these files " non stop music" like DJs mixes some of these files are hours long.

Terry D! I would like to know what model is your J&M player because I have the J&M18E and the most I can put in each folder is 99 Songs on 8 GB max. If your player stops working check what you plug in to the USB it might come loose, try some Velcro behind it, that's what I did with my multi cards re...

I had a similar problem, when turned on, the heater will work for about 10 to 15 minutes then it will shutdown on by itself, if I'll stop for gas or shut off the engine, the heater started to work again for another 10 to 15 minutes. My problem was my heater booster, after I removed it I had no probl...
