Re: GRRR! Another hour spent tryng to align the drive shaft and u-Joint!

I did exactly as Mike described and it work just fine. In addition I open the u-joint boot on the engine side to align the spline end of the u-joint horizontal. I also carefully engage reverse so the output shaft would not turn when I wiggle the spline. That really help me.

Re: Trouble with carbs and vac lines, pics included

Personally I went with the Randakk kit. It is around $100US and will cover all years (88-00) if I read correctly. I initially bought it for my 1990 SE carbs. I had to get a new used set of carburetors because the mixture screws were ceased solid in the original set. Just got a set from a 1999 which ...

Re: 1990 Carburetors Compatibility

Thank you all for your comments.
Terrific links, Bellboy40. Looks like it should not be a major issue to swap with a later unit.
Newday777, I am interested with your 99 carbs. I did send you a pm!
Thanks.

1990 Carburetors Compatibility

I run into a nasty problem with my carburetors. The mixture screws are ceased solid and cannot be adjusted. I will have to replace those carburetors. There is a few available on Ebay. So my questions is, other than 1990 and 1991 carburetors, what others years bike carburetors will work on my 1990 GL...

Re: Rear car tire for GL1500SE tug

Thank you for the reply, Alan. Good to know that there is no noticeable riding changes. My worry about keeping the bike level, is that I will replace the triple tree with a "6Deg" one to reduce the rake. Doing so with the original fork tubes will lower the font end by 1/2 inch. The Austone will rais...

Re: Rear car tire for GL1500SE tug

Hi there... I share your frustration as I am in the same situation as you. You’re correct, The tire is not centred in the swing arm! So I do have now a brand new Yokohama Ascend in 195/55R16 for sale. It will fit nicely on a 1800. If you live in Nova Scotia, Canada and are interested, send me a pm :...

Re: GL 1500 fork springs

CrystalPistol, Thank you for a very interesting information. If i understand, it seems that you have some fork tube extensions to make for the lost in ground clearance caused by going to the 6 deg rake tree. As i am about to install such a fork tree on my sidecar unit, could you let me know where yo...

Need advice on carb rebuilt

I run into an issue that I never seen being discussed before on this forum. I am in the process of rebuilding my carburetors on my 1990 GL 1500. Got a Randall kit. Did the left carb. All went well until I got to the air mixture screw. It is ceased and will not move. Check the other carb and it is th...

Carburetors parts question

Before asking my question I wanted to say thanks to the people at Randakk Cycle Sackk. Part of putting my sidecar together is to rebuilt the carburetors. To do so I bought the Randakk kit in January 2017. Yes I know life tends to get in the way. Got started this past week end and one O ring had a sm...

I was following WingAdmin tread on the Austone Taxi tire and again it looks like a very good fit for our bikes. Here in Canada, I can get it for around $340.00 including shipping and taxes...

Re: Rear Tire Removal...Help

Thanks, Are you currently running the Austone? Reason I ask, is because it is "taller" than the normal tire. Does it pose a problem especially with the sidecar? Like when taking off or cruising in overdrive? It would be quite expensive to have it shipped to Canada so before I go for it, I am looking...

Alan,
Not sure it is the right post to ask, but what tire are you running on the rear with your sidecar... Got an Avon trike for the front but still undecided for the rear! Would have to be a car tire. Did try a YOKOHAMA 195/60 - 16 but it does fit...

Re: Rear brake cylinder

I recently rebuilt my rear master cylinder and this outlet had the exact same defect. I even seen other posts with the same opening. It is just the machining going a little too deep in the casting. It is possible that a piece broke off when the tool got into the opening but it would have been cleane...
