Re: Cruise Control light constantly on

One other thing there was several recalls on the 03 wing, especially the frame re weld. Get the VIN and call a dealer to see if they have all been completed. Don't want to scare you but there are places that the frames are cracking that is not covered under Honda re weld. https://static.nhtsa.gov/od...

Re: Need a new lock for right fairing pocket

Put the new lock on the gas lid. make a key knob for it using the new key. Put the old gas lid lock on the pocket door and now you don't have to take the key pout of the ignition to fuel up and the ignition key and pocket key are the same.

Re: Overdrive question

I always got around 40 MPG on all 3 of my 1500's. the only time I didn't was when I was pulling a trailer and riding 2 up. Once you go over 3000 RPM's your mpg's will drop real fast.check your plugs and air filter and tire pressure.

I have had lots of luck with gravity bleeding. Put the hose in a container open the bleeder valve, let gravity do the work, Keep an eye on the reservoir so it doesn't run out of fluid

They should fit, The SE came with more add on but the major parts on the bike are the same. I just checked the parts diagram and the have the same item number so they should fit. You can check it on ronayers.com

Lots of after market chrome ones out there. You might e bay or salvage yard for a black one. In 1995 the side covers changed a little but they still work on all year 1500's

You have to drill a hole in the back side of the trunk to run the wires thru. Connections are easy and it is plug and play.

Re: Diamond Custom Seats

There are different seats for different bikes. A diamond seat on your 1200 probably will feel different than a Diamond seat on a 1500. I had a Ultimate seat on an 1100 Shadow and it was the best seat I ever sat on. A lot of people love the Corbin, a friend put one on his 1500 several years back and ...

I haven't changed my own tires but there are some places that if you bring the wheel in off the bike they will change the tire fir a very low price, Some have done it for $10 - $20 dollars.

One of the plates in the battery would just crack and it would be dead. When we would travel with a few other couple we would carry a s...

How do they mount? Looks like you need to drill holes in the windshield to mount them?
I had a set many years back on my 1100 wing, those you had to drill a hole in the shield to mount them.

Re: heated sat and the heated hand grips

You said you just picked it up from the dealer. Did you just buy it? If so take it back and have the dealer fix it. Also the outside temp has a lot to do with the amount of heat they put out, if it is hot outside they will not get very hot. Honda really made a mess of the heated gear. they all run w...
