Re: Heel toe shifter

driver running boards and no heel toe shifter if you have big feet or big boots
will make shifting not easy but not impossible, my bike had markland boards on it
when i got it and i got a heel toe shifter, it is kind of clumsy but easier than without it.

Re: Ltd runs to rich

There are two sensors above and in front of the air cleaner cant remember what honda calls them, they are sensors that detect manifold pressure or vacuum, the hoses to them tend to dry rot and leak vacuum causing the engine to run richer than it should, my sei had similar issues. I replaced the vacu...

Re: 1986 GL1200A heel toe shifter bolt

I had similar issue with my heel toe set up,
found the washers were too thick and had
to file or sand one washer to make it thinner and
then it began shifting without binding. hope this helps.

Re: Shinko 230 or 777 and balancer stuff????

the last two tires I have installed on my gl1200 have
been the shinko 230, I get one season out of them and
they are wore out, outside of the short life they are
decent tires. I'm going to the dark side this year,
with a nanking 165/80r15.
