Re: Goldwing fuel pump

on my '98, the OEM pump failed.

I used the P72190 to replace it, AFIK, the mpg did not change for me.

Re: My Garage fire...

The front tire blew up and will make moving it a pain, but it's hard enough just seeing it this way! Harbor Freight sells vehicle dollies that you put under a wheel, for moving vehicles around. Might be a good investment for moving that poor bike... HF somehow, seems to include one of those little ...

Re: tires losing air???

Thanks for the input. It is my belief that the 90 degree metal stem coming out of the rim got bent resulting in the valve stem getting bent when put back in causing air loss. I still believe in the straight-up style valve and will probably change when new tires are put on in summer 2019 (if that's ...

I have to ask, Why get rid of the beads?
Because a tire is not designed to have beads in them.
They are not designed to have liquids in them either, but that has been ignored for over a century.

say what you want, beads work great.

Re: Vessel Ball JIS Screwdriver

Since Amazon has begun really pushing their "Prime" memberships, their shipping which is not under the prime system has gone to hell. They hold back shipping for a week to ten days, in order to convince people that they need prime. I am not having that delay problem. I always choose the Free Shippi...

Re: Tire repair

I have never used RideOn , but it does have an excellent advantage. In your case, with the little tiny nail, all you would have needed to do, is remove it and RideOn provided that RideOn sealant was already in the tire. I have Dyna Beads in my tires, been using it for years, bought a bag of the stuf...

Re: Tire repair

If you have 2 oz of Dyna Beads in the tire, it should be okay.

If however, you sense a bit of imbalance, just add another oz of Dyna Beads and ride on.

Irrelevant to the 1500, but the Madstad allows you to have it your own way for any condition that you might meet. Recently, I started out on a trip at 55°F and I had it all the way up.

without the Vent opening, in a hot summer, you will wilt. UNLESS you install all of the Baker Wind Wings ( or other ) and direct the wind towards your body. I have had 3 Tulsa Tall models, and I wilted thru most summers. Two 1500s, and one 1800... I recently went to a Madstad, but unfortunately, the...

Re: Strange side effect of LED dash conversion???

Typically, the 1500s will not set the CC higher than approx 77 mph. there is a fix for that, if you want it, swap wires 4&5 to the ECM and it will go past 100 and still set. ( in 5th gear ) that makes the ECM think the bike is in 4th gear, and allows the RPMs to go higher for the same speed, thus al...
