Re: Lost my lockable right glove box cover

When you get it if it has a lock or if you buy another lock you can change that lock with you lock on the gas flap so it will be the same as your ignition key and use the lock on your gas flap and make a key knob out of it,

Re: Passenger Board Relocation

I know it's no help now but years back I think it was Markland that made a device called STARS, They attached the crash bar and the seat bolt, they folded when not in use and had 3 or 4 different height adjustments, My wife is just under 5 Ft and she loved them.

Re: Advice on bike for sale, '98 103k miles

As others have said, could be real good or real bad. A link to the ad would help so we can have more details. Most shops will NOT work on a bike that old and sometimes parts are not produced any more. If you can do the work it might be worth it depending on the overall condition and what it needs,

Re: Lighted Antenna

Good luck with your project but adding any weight to the antenna might not be a good thing, they flex enough in the wind without anything else on them, also it might interfere with reception.

Re: GL1500 ignition panel

As said before the ignition panel on some bikes does not fit properly, the ring that goes around the key slot has play in it to make up for the fit around the hole.

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.
