Can't seem to locate notice but, I think there was another recall issued that replace the rear master cylinder also.

Re: Dyna Beads VS Ride on Tire balancing

I'm intrigued why you are so anti Slime in motorcycle tyres. It's designed for that purpose and I run it in my FJ1200 quite happily. It has saved me from a flat twice, as discovered on my weekly tyre check when I found 2 screws in the rear tyre. Just make sure the tyre fitter is aware that Slime is...

Re: Dyna Beads VS Ride on Tire balancing

DO NOT USE SLIME IN MOTORCYCLE TIRES :oops:
i AM A FIRM BELIEVE IN RIDE ON. Have used it years.
You do need to check your tires often for objects stuck in them.

Re: Front end shimmy

Thank you. I do not have a rake kit on the front end. So from what I understand from you is that it's normal to have the shimmy at low speeds and there is no fix? Thank you. Without a rake kit most trikes will have a low speed shimmy, mostly on deceleration. Comes in around 35 or 40mph.. If you not...

Re: Insta trike and bike insurance

Not knowing what insurance company you have, no way to answer your question. You should call your agent.
Most likely completely different in France from here in the US.

Re: Luggage capacity question

1. Don't care for a trailer behind a 2 wheeler!
2. To many posts on several forums of cracked lids from racks with to much weight on them.
3. With no rack and the bag on the lid, probably ruin the paint.
4. Had a packitrak on my 2 wheel Wing and loved it :D

Re: tire pressures

Running 40/42 in the front tire will give you a harsh ride! Stay with the 36. As far as saying it will wear on the left side: http://www.rattlebars.com/tirewear/ "Why is this wear more evident on the left front in most cases?

Re: Radio location on 2003 wing

The shelter is what all the knobs or dial controls are attached to. It's right in front of you as you sit on the bike. It would be the gas tank on most other motorcycles. You knees would be beside it as you sit on the bike with your feet on the foot rests.

Re: Washed my bike...

There is a small flange that extends out from the lens leg that is sealed to the housing/ Water gets trapped under this flange. Finish your wash job with a leaf blower to get rid of the water!

Re: 2006 CB and radio should work together

Proper squelch setting is turning it to the point it just breaks the squelch, which will be different depending on the time of day or night. Not to such a high number you can't transmit a 1/2 mile!

I would carefully ride a plugged tire to nearest place I could get it patched on the inside! Then I would install the RideOn in all tires. Meaning 2 or 3 or 4, however many tires you have. Yes, even use in cars and trucks! The only place it is not recommended is in the Wings that have the OEM TPMS a...

Re: Re Ride-On

I have used it for years.
Weights are optional. Since they're already there, no need to take them off unless you want to.
When you get new tires, there is no need to have them balanced if you install RideOn.

Re: Re Ride-On

Yes you must take the core out.
Follow the instructions!!!
The last thing you do is to shoot a blast of air into the stem to clear it. Then you reinstall the core and air up the tire. Go for at least a ten mile ride to properly disburse the product inside the tire.

I know what your saying about triking it. I have a 99 with a 2012 Hannigan and imho you can't beat them. Also see my post in goldwing chat about the number of trike owners on here. Also what kind of gas mileage do you get out of yours. I average around 34 mpgs. Average is 35mpg for normal riding. I...

Re: 2006 GL1800 for sale- Medicine Hat, Alberta

Curious as to how it was converted to "air suspension", as OEM has hydraulic or oil filled(if you prefer) pump to adjust preload for the rear suspension
