If it an airbag the radio controls will be on the left side of the fairing by where your leg is.

Better put the cam chain tensioner on it before you put a lot of miles on it

Re: Interesting restart issue

I found that on my 98 SE when it was cold, first start of the day, all I had to do was crank the throttle 2 or 3 times BEFORE i pushed the start button and it started every time. didn't have to use the enricher at all and I know cranking the throttle does the same thing.

Re: Letter in Motorcycle Consumer News on fork braces

I know lots of riders use them but I have owned 7 Gold Wings from 1100's up to my last 2 1800's, never had a fork brace and never felt a need for one. I have rode wings with a brace and didn't really notice a difference. Just like the belly pan,. I bought one of those to try it and took it off after...

Re: Which wing?

Good choice. and I'm sure you will do some maintenance on it just to be sure. Most 1500 owners do NOT change the timing belts. Everything can look great and have great maintenance records but some things I would make sure were done Timing belts changed Drive shaft removed and splines greased at 100K...

Re: Has anyone ever made a "rat bike" out of a 1500?

I have to respond to this. I do NOT understand the whole "rat rod" or "rat bike" thing. Why would anyone take the time to build something that looks like a piece of crap? Every time I see one of these things, all I can think is that the guy was just too lazy to finish it. When I started reading you...

Re: Show Chrome Low Contour Rack Install Question

When I did the rack on my 02 (I didn't have one on my 08) I removed the inner trunk liner, Use star washers and remember do not overload the rack. I used it to carry my cold weather jacket and gloves. An I used it as a handle to open and close the trunk.

Re: Voltmeter Install

Another option for that voltmeter install would be one of the "ignition/gauge" panel. You could install TWO 2" gauges/meters on those panels along with an extra USB charging port or what ever you want. They look great and "fitment' is same as the original.

Re: Left saddle bag will not open

If all else fails you can probably find a used bag on line or from a trike dealer and rip the old one off the bike. It will be a lot cheaper than paying a dealer

Re: Tire repair

When I bought my new Kawasaki 1400 back in 09 it came with TPMS. When I had new tires put on the dealer recommended Ride-on be put in the tires. While the bike was very smooth it did destroy the senders in the tires, They replaced them at no cost to me. So I wouldn't recommend that if you have a TPMS

Re: Air Filter

I don't use K&N filters but if it's that hard to get an OEM you should look into a reusable one like K&N so you don't have to try and find one every time you have to change it

On the linked brakes, the brake pedal activates the rear brake and the left front brake. The brake lever is only for right front disc. Manual says to bleed front (left front) first, then rear. Basically start with the one furthest from the master. The clutch might only need to be bled also and not r...

Re: Gear Indicator Light

If I remember correctly an after market used to make a gear indicator to go in that empty space in the dash. Of course the 1500 wing hasn't been made for several years so a lot of the after market stuff that used to be made for them are no longer around
