Re: Headlight Modulator

I have a question. I had to put some pressure on my headlight assembly to get in bolted in, is that normal? I moved the heat sink ribbons out of the way but man they take up room. I used electrical ties to hold some things in place and checked to make sure they weren't in the way, but I don't know w...

I don't have any friends at all. I'm not an idiot, I can follow directions, it's called learning. Thank you for your input.

Re: How to tune your CB antenna SWR

Hi,
Would this work for checking the CB antenna on my 1994 Goldwing SE 1500 ? I know nothing about this.

Re: Air Lines

Hello Curt, Thank you. I had a hour and half ride on my wing getting it home th a day I purchased it back in September of 2014 and I was amazed, I felt like I was on a magic carpet ride. I hadn't been on a bike since before that since 1988 and that was an old 1976 Suzuki GT 500 that had a little tan...

Re: Air Lines

Hi Curt,
It's a thin black line and it has a threaded end with a valve stem in it. I think when I lower the rear Tupperware I'll find where it goes. It's my fault, I've been working on the bike for 4 years.

Thank you

Air Lines

Hi,
Is there a diagram anywhere so I can see where all the air lines go. I have an air line and I cant find where it goes. I have the rear Tupperware lifted up and just hooked up the air line to the right rear shock, and I have a air line sticking out that's kind of long.

Thank you
Frank

Re: How to replace your clutch lever bushing

Thank you. That part #9 kind of looks like an old stove pipe that like President Lincoln used, the one that's on the rod, between the two raised flanges I have on my rod looks like a rubber seal that goes on valve in a engine. Do I cut part of the boot off so it looks like a O- Ring? I don't have sp...

Re: How to replace your clutch lever bushing

Hello,
I just want to ask a quick question. Does part number 9 slip over the end of the shaft which is part number 2 or does it go into the master cylinder where the shaft goes in ?

I have a 1994 goldwing SE 1500.

Thank you Tom. I want to give it a shot. I was reading about windscreens and I guess some of them are so hard that they don't polish. Thank you for your service, always good to hear from a fellow Veteran, Marine Corps here............Thank you again Tom.

Re: Teardrop Trailer

I like that clcboats trailer, but it doesn't say anything about pulling it with a motorcycle but it seems light enough to do work.

Thank you
