Re: Pathfinder Sequential LED spoiler

I'm want to install the Pathfinder Sequential LED spoiler on my 2010 GL1800 Audio Comfort. The question I have, I have a BackOff brake modulator installed. Will the spoiler work with the modulator? You should not have any problems with that set up, the lower brake lights go through the C-31 connect...

Re: Trunk delete?

But, why wouldn’t a parts list for a F6B supply me with my objective? May be pricey but wouldn’t that work? You still have not said what wing you are asking about doing this on. The F6B parts can be put on to replace the trunk of the 2012-2017. The saddlebags and taillight are different than the 01...

Re: Remove and Replace the Trunk Lid

So I am curious what caused the cracks? Did you overload the rack at some point? Did you use locktite on the fasteners when installing the rack? Locktite will attach the ABS plastic and cause it to stress crack. One thing you can try doing to stop the cracks is to stop drill them, at the end of each...

Re: Failure!

I had a similar incident, but what fell off hit my wife's foot, quickly looked for missing parts and then realized my fairly expensive Seiko Kenitics wrist watch was gone, suspect the band broke. Knowing it was toast and then most certainly run over many times as we were in heavy traffic, I just mot...

Re: Final drive on GL1800

Good job sorting that issue out, it is easy to miss...

Re: Trailer LED conversion

Most isolators are just boxes of relays. They don't care if they are switching incandescent bulbs, LEDs, or electric fans. That is true, but many are made specifically for LEDs and normally state that on the package, some that are not made for use with LEDs require a certain amount of current draw ...

Re: Suspension harshness

My 2013 is harsher than I expected when I picked it up, wife thought it is fine, most of what I felt was through the front forks. I did some research and finally I found the anti-dive valve was stuck. I freed it up and the ride quality was much improved. The anti-dive valve is in the lower portion o...

Most are not terribly difficult to change, I purchased a new set of bulbs and replaced mine. The bulbs are small peanut style bulbs with fin...

Re: Driver’s headset lead is not working

I am not talking about the cord that plugs into the the bike from the helmet, I am talking about the cable that plugs into the bike’s harness under the left cubby and has the helmet connector on the other end, could be that cable is bad.

Re: Driver’s headset lead is not working

Did you unplug and reconnect the connector in the left fairing pocket?. Sometimes if there is corrosion on the contacts the act of unplugging and reconnecting is enough to scrub the corrosion off. If it is corrosion you may need to get some contact cleaner and spray the connectors. Do you have a rid...

Re: Fuel odor

In the past have you been in the habit of filling the tank above the small vent hole in the filler neck?
That vent goes to a charcoal filled canister, gas can drain into that vent, if the canister has a lot of liquid gas in it you can get fuel odors around the bike.
