Re: *Update* - Its not good...

If you have oil leaking from the U-joint boot, that oil will travel down to the final drive and leak out there also (as they say been there done that). Fix that oil seal on the output shaft of the engine and the oil shouldn't be dripping out of the assembly.

Re: turn signal duration

No help on the idea but, I've just gotten in the habit of hitting the 'On' several times when I get into the 'long' turn situation. After the turn, the signal self cancels like it normally does.

Re: Tire size/Center stand

I have a small piece of 1/2" thick plywood that the centerstand is on, find it helps with getting it off the centerstand.

My tires are E3s, front 130/80 B-16, rear MV 85 B-15 (fyi)

Re: U-Joint or Something else

Haven't noticed anyone mention the swingarm bearings, they could be worn and causing a 'notchiness' (my word) cause the swingarm to not smoothly transition from full compression to full extension. That's my guess :D

Re: Pilot mixture screws- to do or not to do

I had my carbs done by a professional and he removed and re-set them along with floats and everything inside. I've had no issues since it was done, about 4 years ago.

I've used Dri-Slide for years. It's a moly lube. Might be available in your area?

Re: Where on the 1986 GL1200A fairing does the blue pin harness plug into

Maybe the ignition switch is dirty? Maybe a loose power or ground connection?

Re: Where on the 1986 GL1200A fairing does the blue pin harness plug into

Are you speaking of the blue connector about 3" long? Made like an edge connection? It might be the factory radio connector.

Re: front brake light switch issue

Another possibility would be a worn lever bushing, not allowing the lever to engage the switch properly.

I didn't realize they had them for the '86. Now I know what my replacement will be when I need one, thanks. Most people either love them or hate them, just because of looks.
