Re: rear suspension

I just air mine up on the ground and run it at about 100 PSI resting. been running it that way for years and it works good when riding 2 up and pulling the camper. it's a bit rough when I'm solo but I just leave it there all the time

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...

Re: Restoring/Painting hand control markings

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

Re: Phone Volt Meter

that seems like a lot for just a phone charger. is your volt meter tied straight to your battery or does it feed off an accessory or even the accessory fuse. it may just be your meter is being effected by the charging cable. mine would do that until I rewired it to a relay I had for my driving light...

Re: Electrical problem-replaced two alternators

also check your voltage output at the alternator it self as well as at the battery while running, you may have a bad connection or bad cable
check your ground connections and made sure they are good

Re: Gl 1500 reversing problem

It sounds like even though your light is coming on that it's not completely engaging.

I checked my cables and all the other stuff I found that if I gently...

Re: 1984 Goldwing Aspencade handlebars height

I raised the bars on my 1200 and on my now 1500 and never had any issues, however I didn't raise them to the point of not being able to still see and judge the fluid levels. the draw is in the bottom so as long as there is fluid and it isn't leaking I don't see it as an issue

Re: Darkside Tech: Using Car Tires on a Motorcycle Rim

If I understand your question correctly you want to know what car tire to put on the front, well you can't put a car tire on the front unless you change your forks over to a different design that allows for the width of a car tire. I don't have a trike but have the same type side forces your seeing....
