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? Actually, excessive side tire wear is only evident on the left front in co...

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!

Re: Re Ride-On

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.

Re: 2006 GL1800 for sale- Medicine Hat, Alberta

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

Am I missing something here? I didn't see anything about air suspension. What I saw was adjustable suspension. Maybe my eyes are getting to old. Or better yet maybe I need to go see the eye doctor! :lol: :lol: :lol: The OP corrected the post after being asked how air suspension was added. BTW, I ha...

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

Re: Tire Sealent

I've read that most sealants have the potential to explode if exposed to sparks and you should notify the tire changer that an aerosol type sealer was used. Does RideOn also fall into that category? I have a very hard time believing that. Most of the sealants I've worked with are water-based. I thi...

No it does not. RideOn is not an aerosol.

Re: Trail braking

In applying this technique, motorcycle riders approach turns applying front brakes to reduce speed. As they enter the turn, they slowly ease off the brakes, gradually decreasing or trailing off the brakes as motorcycle lean increases.

Re: Trike/sidecar fork oil

Thanks
I should clarify my statement. I was speaking of Progressive springs making the ride harsh. No experience with others.
Still invite you over to TrikeTalk. The owner of that forum owns a conversion shop and is very knowledgeable about many bikes and brands of conversions.

Well I do. I work in a trike shop and do suspension.
OK, good for you.

what trike shop do you work at?
what heavier spring are you using in 1800 Wings?
Ever had anyone complain their front was to harsh after the heavier springs/fork oil?
Thanks
