Re: SE vs Aspencade

something to keep in mind is in 97 they started putting the heavier transmissions in the 1500's. there were tranny failures in the earlier years, I think mostly 4th gear failure if you plan on a lot of 2 up and maybe a trailer I would suggest you look at 97 and up mostly. + 1 on the 1500 being more ...

Re: Extra Fuel Tank

hmm never thought of it that way. I will try that and report back. be interesting to know for sure what is happing but I have to wonder why does it only happen from about 1/4 or less. any amount of gas over a 1/4 tank and it never misses a beat. maybe empty volume in the tank for pressure is reduced...

Re: Extra Fuel Tank

First off: the GL1500 fuel pump does not have an issue losing prime. You can drain the tank dry, run the bike until it quits and there is zero fuel left in it, then fill the tank again, and the pump will operate, fill the carbs and the bike will start. Disclaimer: don't do this. It's not good to ru...

Re: Extra Fuel Tank

I have to say that is interesting info, I can only speak for my bike, if I let it get to 1/4 tank and turn on the aux pump to transfer fuel while I'm riding it will begin to skip cough sputter and all but shut down I can turn the pump off and a couple seconds later it is fine. I can turn it on at an...

Re: Extra Fuel Tank

on the bubbles, let me just say from experience that if you let it get to 1/4 before turning on the aux tank the bubbles WILL be an issue unless you can direct the fuel going into the tank so that it is towards the front or left side and not just straight down. what happens is the fuel being transfe...

Re: Replacing relay #3

Re: Radio Volume up-down

well crud, I may be back to square one here. I just went out and decided to just mess with the radio to see about the cassette muting. well when I hit the button for cassette it does mute and unmute like it should, so my guess is the ground may be OK. also when this happens I don't lose my sound it ...

first I want to say,I'm Sorry, I'm sure this had been discussed I just can't seem to find it anywhere. The problem I am having involves the radio volume, it goes up and down on it's own it's like it goes into the mute mode while just riding down the road or even just sitting still sometimes, then ju...

Re: Extra Fuel Tank

I have an aux tank in my sidecar, couple things you need to keep in mind, one you will need an inline directional check valve to stop gas from being able to go backwards as well as pressure from the bikes tank. next is you can't really tie into the factory fuel lines as all of them come after the st...

Re: What would you do with this opportunity?

I had my 86 Aspy 1200 for almost 7 years, I always said if the stator went I would put the poor boy kit on it. as it turns out it never failed. have you already soldered the 3 wires at the plug on the side. also converting as many lights as possible to LED is a great idea. not sure I see a need for ...

Re: Tyre size please

Yep that is a nice looking 1200. I would suggest taking the seat off so you can get to all the lines from comp to shock and air it up and start spraying soapy water on everything until you find leak
it may be a simple air line or fitting leaking

Re: Tyre size please

hello and welcome if it's a 92 you have a 1500 not a 1200. if it's a 1200 and the tire is rubbing it could just be the rear suspension needs to be raised, air added to the air shock. I know my 1200 would rub on bumps when riding 2 up if the air was down. make sure your swing arm isn't rusted and swe...

you can use a nice bright red fingernail polish or you can use any color you want but red looks good,
then use some back to black for the outer body and it will bring back that nice clean look
