Re: UNOBTAINIUM 2.0 PANEL 83160-MN5-XXX (Firecreek style)

GOOD JOB with that install. I think you did a fine job with that voltmeter, and fader mounting. If sun glare becomes a problem, I have a few gauge visors on hand, or you can contact Jim at Airtech Fabricators out of AZ. He's a good guy and he'll take care of you. Is that the fader that came "stock" ...

Re: Highway Speeds

Denverwinger is correct about the engine, just keep oil, coolant, and fluids topped off and it should last a couple hundred K. HOWEVER, ,let YOUR SAFETY be your guide, , if you're not comfortable at the high speeds, SLOW DOWN to your safe speed. OH YEAH, , your mileage will SUCK at those RPM's for a...

That panel will "blank-off" the area of the center-shelter were a "normal" GL1500 stereo was mounted. The panel mounts to the same mounting holes so there is no modifications necessary. The panel allows for a solid platform to install an AM/FM stereo with all of the technology that exists today, suc...

Thanks for the comments Newday777. I agree that it provides an "option" for dealing with the aging cassette stereo setup. The vendor is using a High Temperature resin mold, as I understand the process. They are VERY sturdy and durable which would be too difficult for a 3D printer, if I understand th...

Re: gas fumes

Yep, , check that drain tube for the gas cap "tray", , a leaky petcock can drip onto it and fill the drain tube. Pull the drain plug to see what's in the tube, , it might shed some light on whats leaking and from where.

UNOBTAINIUM 2.0 IGNITION PANEL 83160-MN5-XXX

This is a panel that replaces the OEM ignition panel on all GL1500's, and attaches to the centershelter with two "bosses" through rubber grommets. The "KEY" features about this panel is that its a direct replacement so no modifications to your existing equipment, and it has two "nodes" facing the ri...

Seems fairly straight-forward, , , Once you have the air filter/housing off, , , start the engine and block the "hole" with your fingers, (he described them as dark little tubes black),then watch your idle smooth out. If it doesn't smooth out, , move your fingers to the other two holes and plug them...

The radio is from Walmart and they cost $13.99 (on rollback) with all the bells and whistles. Its a Dual XDM16BT that works great and I'm pleased with all the "goodies".

Re: GL1500 stereo upgrade/replacement

It looks like your voltmeter is just below the "badge" which is closer to the dash than what a radio would be installed. You have a valid point, so please don't misunderstand my comments. Take a quick look at my post(pic) from 5/13 and you'll see my iphone sits just below the 'badge", similar to whe...
