Re: Having a real problem keeping my 92 1500 cc Gold Wing upright

Getting a fork brace helps with this twitch/flop problem at low speed. Blackhawk makes a great one it also helps eliminate front tire cupping and instability at low speeds. Interesting to see the differences of opinions on here about how to correct it. I have dropped mine a few times and just let it...

Re: Trading up 1985 Aspencade for 1996 S.E.

Thanks for the info BikerBuck. Like I said not really a big deal but I will probably install one this winter when I go to repaint and remove some unnecessary extra weight, ie:old stereo system, CB and intercom systems and a few other small weight loss items. I tend to ride it like a 350lb sport bike...

Re: Trading up 1985 Aspencade for 1996 S.E.

Never had this problem with my other bikes, other then the 6" over raked pan chopper. It's not a big deal at all more just an observation. Will have to try the tire pressure check and see if changing it helps at all and if not I will maybe put on a small dampener. Love the bike and look forward to m...

Re: Trading up 1985 Aspencade for 1996 S.E.

Got my first wing a gl 1500 se 1996, been a life long Harley rider from sportsters to deckers and I love my 96 that I got about 4 months ago.

Re: How to LED your windshield

Here are some pics in evening of my lighted windshield, it is dirty and scratched up after a 6000km road trip recently and have not had time to re-polish it to get rid of all the scratches and embedded road grime. If you have scratches you can sand and polish them out, just like you do car plastic h...

Re: How to LED your windshield

Have this on my 96 as it was already installed when I purchased it and it is okay IF your windshield is scratch free and it should only light up the edges at night if installed properly. Mine are green and red when brakes are applied. I don't mind it sometimes in the evening or night but I have to m...

Re: GL1500, changing old sound to new

For this year I have just went with using an fm transmitter with my iPod shuffle for my music using the stock stereo, bought a small portable one by Scosche for under $25 at wallyworld. Works great and is super easy to use. Uses a couple of AAA batteries that last a fair while and best thing is you ...
