Aux input for the cassette deck ??? HELP!

G'day to All :D I followed all the instructions in the "How-To Articles" for the attachment of the Aux input to my "RM-1500A" cassette deck and it works "Awesome!" But the radio itself is a Japanese one so the FM stations finish at 90.0 RM-1500A.png I do not (like many others) use the cassette playe...

Re: Cringe, Cry or Laugh. ......... I am doing it.

G'day to All :D :D :D I am lucky enough to have a "H" beam in the roof of my workshop and a couple of "Block & Tackle's" My knees and ankles suffer too much grovelling around on the ground so I either lift it up onto the stand to work on electrics and top stuff or onto the bench for the lower stuff....

Re: Interstate Aux input on a SE?

G'day! :D :D :D It is easy if you have an "Interstate". I have installed an interstate radio onto my 88 outfit (as per photo). Firstly the main wiring harness is different so you would have to modify yours as the interstate does not have reverse and many other features so you cant just get one and f...

No counter-steering. it is like a cage now, you want to turn left you turn the handlebars left, this creates side forces which the motorcycle was not designed for, especially the steering.

Cringe, Cry or Laugh. ......... I am doing it.

I bought this 90SE early last year, the more i delved into her the worse things got (cosmetically), the engine has done a mere 100,000 miles and most of the mechanical side is fine, just lots of broken plastic and holes drilled everywhere. What to do????????????? Strip her down naked and basic, get ...

Re: Adding pictures to your message

Every time i try to post a pic i get this;

After much messing about i found that i have to open my pics in "Paint", reduce them by 50% and save it in a PNG format.

This for me is much messing about and the main reason that i do not post on this Great site.

But i would like to :(

She is finally on the road.

G'day to All.

well after many months, tears, obscenities and Dollar$ , she is finally on the road.

Still needs a few finishing touches and the correct government permits to make her complete, but she is ride-able. :D :D :D

G'day to Everyone! I have an 88, it has the fader control fitted, the Goldwing emblem i think is a little second rate and annoys me as it seems to be in the perfect spot to act like a mirror when riding in sunshine.

I have converted my 88 to 90 wiring so i now need a 2 wire tach. A swap would be great (2 for 1), the only problem is i live in Perth, Western Australia an...

Re: Rear air shock

Yes, that fills the outer air shock but as the circled in red sections it does not fill the inner damper which stays full of air , thus the shock has no effect, it just bounces about.

Rear air shock

G'day to All, I have been overhauling my 88 and fitted a new seal on my air shock, I pumped all the ATF out a while ago and only now read the manual stating that not to let the ATF out of the damper. Hmmmm, too late for me now :( Ok so now how do I fill it? anyone else don the same and how did they ...
