I’ll never go back. One of the best improvements I’ve made, for the performance of the alternator and the life of the battery. Brighter lights are an added plus.

Re: Kickstand kill switch

There is a little finger on the back of that switch that slides into a hole at the top of the side stand which rotates the inside of the switch back-and-forth for on and off. Best to do with the motorcycle on the center stand. I’m sure you knew that. No, I didn't know anything about the switch. The...

Re: "98 GL1500SE Rear Tire Noise after Replacement

I have heard of some owners that zip tie that little flap back so it doesn't contact the tire tread. It probably only has to move a small amount to clear. You may have to remove the tire to get to it to tie it back. Russell I think it can be accessed through the top after the seat is removed. Winga...

Re: Really dumb question

If I remember correctly, there are tabs on the inside of that cover that you can access if you remove the pocket above it. You have to be careful because those tabs are kind of brittle.

Re: Intermittent LCD screen

I think Rambozo was referring to a condensation issue which can happen anytime there is a change in temperature. If you search “GL1500 LCD display repair/replace” on this site there is a wealth of discussion on the subject.

Totally agreed that dielectric grease is an insulator. Disagree on the usage though. Clean metal contacts coated with grease in halves of a connection plug will scrape against each other displacing the grease with metal-to-metal contact when you push the plugs together, leaving the remainder of the...

I go over mine with compressed air after a wash. Every place where water can collect and hold.instrument panels, all handlebar switches, spark plug holes, etc. It doesn’t need to be high pressure. And I never pressure wash.
