Re: AM/FM Booster to fit a Goldwing GL1800

I wish you luck in your search but I know of no AM/FM booster that actually works even if it does fit the Motorola Jacks that are on the GL1800.

As long as the relay footprint is the same and the connector footprint, you can use any size you wish.

Re: 83 GL1100A brake problems

Wow, that is pretty nasty. Did you ever give any thought to ordering one of those units from China? At under $15 it is hard not to at least give it a shot. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Universal-Motorcycle-Rear-Foot-Brake-Master-Pump-Cylinder-W-Fluid-Reservoir/373085047759?_trkparms=aid%3D1110012%26algo...

Re: Electrical Issue

MikeB Thank you so much. That solved the problem. It was the same connector as shown in your picture. It wasn’t as burnt as yours but when I bypassed it, my problem went away and my reverse is working again. Thanks for the help fellas! Now I just have to see if the cruise control is working.

Re: Fuel Pump failure

You guys are really jamming up my brain. :? I just told crystal pistol that I found out before that by opening the gas cap there is no more fuel flow up the line and it's not pressurized anymore. To me that should solve the problem. Unless the carbs floats are stuck, then no gas should get into the...

Re: Electrical Issue

Sounds like a ground issue to me. I can't say that all of it is related to one point in particular but check the connector on the left side of the bike under the seat. Here is a picture of the connector to show its location: Connector_Location.jpg This connector effected my lights so I know it can b...

Shouldn't a new GL`1500 alternator spin free by hand, right out of the box, without any drag, or at
least with only slight drag (brushes) not really very noticeable.
Yes, of course. If it is an aftermarket alternator, as in off of Ebay, I would be highly suspect of it.

Re: Air shock oil/fluid

My plan is to use SS7 now, but before when I was reading the guide post I saw no mention of it and figured my SS8 would be good - until I read the bottle mention "not for use in rear shock applications" and was wondering why. Especially since it seemed to be similar to what most people in the forum...

Re: Air suspension???

It almost sounds like you have an aftermarket air shock system. If it was stock, the bike's rear end would not bounce like you say it is. The OEM left shock is an actual coil over, oil dampened shock. The OEM right shock is more or less an air bag that adjusts ride height. After market shocks, like ...

Re: Starting issue

In looking at the simplified starting dagram, it appears that there is something left out but it is just a smiplified diagram. There has to be a path for ground to starter relays A and B. It would appear that ground is supplied through the Reverse Relay but the contacts should be closed or maybe th...

Re: EMERGENCY BRAKE PROBLEM

It's going to come down to having to push the pistons out, drain the system, pull it off the bike and basically re-do all of the work I just did to "rebuild" it in the first place. My intention was to make it work better and instead it's not working at all. I only used brake fluid to coat the parts...

It should not be a problem at all. Amp hour is the rating used to tell consumers how much amperage a battery can provide for exactly one hour.

Re: I wonder why....alternator light?

It has been a while since I dealt with him but if I remember correctly I had to call them on the phone to remind them of the order. That's why I said they were getting a little bit long in the tooth and it might be a good idea to give them a call.
