Re: Fifth gear

Good luck and I hope it is just an adjustment. But Honda has been known to have tranny problems. floor boards make it worst. If you have floor boards obn the bike and have tranny problems Honda has been known to void the warranty.

Re: need gps suggestions

I have one like that. It's a NUVI, not sure if it is the 760 or not. Been on several different bikes. It works great. Mine has a SD slot I put an SD card in there with music i=on it, you can tune it to an unused FM station and get everything into your head set.

Re: Floor boards

Be aware that if your bike is under warranty and you have a heel/toe shifter Honda will void your warranty if you have tranny problems.

Re: tire pressure sensors

I had a Kawasaki Concours 1400 with the TPMS and it the same thing. It was due to cold tire, after a couple miles it went off.

Re: Reverse Question

My driveway is like yours, slight incline and I do the same, put it in reverse and back it in. Done this to 3 different Gold Wings and never had a problem so I don't think it is the starter, probably just a cable adjustment. Good luck with it, let us know how it works out

works better if you have someone putting slight pressure on the passenger foot rests
Your picture shows them in the down position, they will go up a couple inches.

Re: side cover grommet

Your best option is your local Honda Motorcycle dealer. The price you pay for 1 at the dealer you can get a variety pack from wingstuff.com or cyclemate.com. You will need them later, better to have a couple extra anyway. I wonder what the shipping charge to Australia is from WingStuff.com or Cycle...

Re: Looses fitting side coveres

As MikeB has posted, $30 is a lot cheaper than buying a new side cover. Wingstuff.com has them also

Re: Looses fitting side coveres

Before you start gluing the side covers I would try bluthunder31 said, switch the grommets with the other side. Probably you have the wrong ones.

If it an SE there is no mod to do, they stay on all the time. But as others have said, probably just the plug didn't get plugged back oin.

Re: Washed my bike...

I always wash my bike with a pail of soapy water and a garden hose, and dry it with a leaf blower, never had a problem with water doing any damage or getting in any where. It is a touring bike and should be able to get wet without any problems.

Re: LOW FUEL INDICATOR LIGHT

This happens more than you would think. If you don't replace the sending unit just make sure you reset your trip meter after every fill up and at a certain mileage start looking for gas, or when your gas gauge gets low fill up. I always try to fill up at at least 1/4 tank and everytime after a ride ...

Re: headphones

If it doesn't work in front or back I would think it is the headset. Do you have access to another bike you can try the headset on? Or another headset you can try on your bike? i don't remember but do you have to set the volume on each setting, outside speakers and headset ?

Re: 1993 gl1500A water pump

You need to drain the oil before you remove the water pump.
Be careful when replacing the water pump, don't over tighten the mounting bolts or the drain plug. It is an easy job.
