Re: Passenger arm rests

I take it they have an adjustable tension on the swing? Do you currently have these installed? Any issues having to tighten the swing on a regular basis? I would have to agree it’s a much more solid mount then others I’ve researched. The tension is adjustable to some degree. The attaching bolt can ...

Re: Passenger arm rests

I like the Show Chrome armrests.

They mount between the passenger grab rails and the seat. I prefer this installation because they are not mounted to the ABS plastic trunk that can break easily.

The price is pretty good too considering all the others.

Yep, in the UK, the zipper is on your left when wearing the jacket/coat/hoodie/cardigan/tracksuit-top. Doesn't matter whether male or female.

Re: oil pan warmer/heater?

If you switch to Rotella T6 5W40, your problem is solved. That is what I am using in my bike, shifts great, starts the same at 20* as it does at 80* I have watched the fuel light to see how long it takes to go out..... even at 20* it goes off nearly as quick as it does in the warmer temps.

I may be a bit off base suggesting this since you have had you Wing for a number of years and are very familiar with it.

Re: Bleeding rear brakes

Bleeding the rear brake without removing the left saddlebag would probably be the least involved method. However, removing the saddlebag would make acess to the caliper easier and the bleeding process easier. Like joeincalif said, be sure you bleed the left front caliper first, the left front and re...
