Re: Vetter Top box and saddle bags

Greetings Folks, WHile trying to figure out the saddlebags, the instructions say to remove the turn signals on my 77 GL1000. And to replace with the "stalk" which allegedly is Vetter part and I don't have. Can't the turn signals assembly simply be transplanted to the new location on the vetter stru...

Re: Help 1979 gl1000

Thanks that's a big help I wasnt sure what was missing just know I could see moving parts and a oil leak and that cap in the description should work? They are $12 on Amazon, a real OEM item. They are $6.10 from Honda itself. https://www.hondapartshouse.com/oemparts/p/honda/12361-300-000/cap-valve-a...

Re: Windjammer bracket Modification

Greetings Group, I have a GL1000 bracket. However, the crash bars (Hondaline) are impacting the placement. I think I can grind off about an inch off of the bottom of the bracket to make it fit. Has anyubody else done this before? Cheers If all the parts are the correct ones for your bike, there sho...

Re: GL1000 engine shutting down at lower speeds (while running warm)

Does this have points or an aftermarket ignition setup? It has points. The mechanic at the shop said he did static timing on it as best as he could Is digital ignition something to consider for an issue like this? Not really. Why I asked was my 1st electronic ignition went bad, after 36 years. It w...

Well guys, I’m gonna try to get my goldwing up and running for the first time since I got it last November. I’ve been able to work on it off and on since then, but now that that school’s out I think I’m finally ready. However, I have a slight problem. I know how a lot of the individual components w...

Re: Exhaust balancer pipe

So, does anybody subscribe to the notion that, if Honda put it there, they did it for a reason? I was told that that washer in the oil filter "naah, it runs just fine without it". The balance pipe is the same way. Why would Honda add weight to the bike if it didn't serve a purpose? I say put it bac...

Re: Exhaust balancer pipe

The quest for total originality is always hard. I doubt whether I will ever find a 1976 exhaust system for my bike; after 42 years any remaining example are probably severely rotted so a close substitute is the one that came loose with the bike. After some judicious chopping and welding it looks pr...

Re: Exhaust balancer pipe

I am hoping that the difference between the two exhausts is relatively modest and ICBC will let it slide somewhat in my application for Collector status. The principal difference is the absence of chrome heat shields on the actual muffler body of the 1979 (ish) exhaust. If any one has a couple of s...

To have the carbs rebuilt by some who knows what they are doing using quality parts is about $450. Sounds pricey but the kit alone is over $150. I use...

So it's not something you add, it's an integral part of something you add.
Right. You can buy a voltage regulator unit that internally uses MOSFETs.
Thanks.

I still have the stock VR on the bike never saw the need to switch but I would if there was a benefit to it.

Good point. I would rather not have to fabricate a balancer pipe, so I think I will try it without and see how things go.

Appreciate the input.

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

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...

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...
