Re: Air shock supply options

You would most certainly need to incorporate a pressure regulator off the CO2 canister, get the pressure down to 75 PSI or so, I doubt electric valves could handle direct pressure of the canister, and you would also run the risk of severely overpressuring your shocks. The kit i am looking at is sol...

Re: Air shock supply options

Uhm, you also change out the flasher. There's really no need to do anything else if you get the proper bulbs/flasher. The front blinkers are running lights so those go to LED. The rear blinkers only blink when turning so those stay incandescent and set the load so no issue with the blinkers. All th...

Re: Air shock supply options

The front blinkers are running lights so those go to LED. The rear blinkers only blink when turning so those stay incandescent and set the load so no issue with the blinkers. All the dash lights become 1SMD LED and are brighter and way less power. The Mofset from a 2006 CBR600 was wire for wire ide...

Re: Air shock supply options

What "blinker compatibility issues". BTW, it's a stator, not a magneto. Would be interesting to try and the run bike with a magneto. Thank you for the correction. So from what I have read, there is no plug-n-play LED turn indicator bulb as the resistance is too low to trigger the flasher. And any b...

Re: Air shock supply options

An air supply pump would not run continuously, just occasionally. So I would not expect it to cause any problems. Replacing all incandescent bulbs with LED would compensate. And if you have not yet updated to a newer Mofset voltage regulator that too helps. Keep in mind the main charging issue is t...

Re: '76 GL1000, new to the forum, looking for a part source

+1 on the HD mufflers. I have them on mine altho I do have an almost perfect OEM set for my 78. The HD mufflers go right on the headers with only a small adapter needed. Make or buy a set of brackets for support and you are all done. Never heard of any source for the rubbers tho. You might have to f...

So much more smoother and powerful. And more importantly it did not once stalled :D Sounds like you have it sorted. ...

I switched sparkplug 4 with sparkplug 2.
Now cylinder 2 is not firing.

Looks like I have a defective sparkplug.
Time for 4 new plugs, I think.

Looks like it.
To bad I only drove 250km with these..
No warranty where you bought them?

Re: Randakk's High-Performance Fuel Filter

Well, considering that Randakk found the problem some years back and sorted it, the new owners probably have no knowledge of it at all. Although I guess they could have asked him about it. But in all reality, it's nothing to do with them now. Haven't taken mine apart but I will. If he knew about th...

I think we need to know if Pistol Pete bought and fitted new faces - and chose the one with the red mark?

[I have not sorted mine yet - fairly low priority.]
My understanding is that the bike was brought back to 100% original condition.

PP also redoes gauge faces.

The guy told me it does not have point ignition anymore. It's been changed to electric.

Are those adjustable?
It depends on what kind/brand.

You should try to find out, some can tell just by looking at a picture of the plate.
