Re: Wrinkled Windshield Tape

As thick as the velcro is, compared to the tape, I am surprised it would work.
Are you saying once the Velcro is installed some aftermarket windshield won't slide up and down, or that in general some won't move even with the oem tape?

Re: Wrinkled Windshield Tape

I ordered a Memphis Shades windshield. The rest of the tapes are good.

Wrinkled Windshield Tape

I am replacing the windshield on my '08 1800. The two 13" pieces of tape that are attached to the Visor A Meter Panel the windshield slides against when adjusted it up and down are seriously wrinkled, which has put a lot of rub marks on the windshield. Obviously I don't want the same thing to happen...

Re: Bike starts only if in neutral?

I also had the problem of my bike only starting in neutral. After reading this whole thread I went out and pulled in my lever completely and only heard one click. I checked the dial adjustment and saw it was set at 4. I moved the dial to 3, pulled in the clutch lever completely and got two clicks, j...

Re: Coolant smell long after coolant change

Thanks guys. It doesn't seem like I am loosing coolant, just have the odor when it is running/warmed up. The reservoir cap is snug. I will wait and see if the odor eventually goes away.

Coolant smell long after coolant change

Six weeks ago (1200 miles ago) I changed the coolant in my 2008 GL1800 and since then I can smell coolant when stopped or at low speed. At first I thought it was spillage when refilling the system but, I shouldn't still be smelling it now. I have checked the overflow hose connections, the breather h...

Re: Mice in Trunk

I had the same problem, kind of. I bought an '08 last month from a guy in a rural part of my state, Idaho, and after getting it home I started performing maintenance on it. I found where a mouse had been hanging out in the air filter box, lots of seed shells. No where near as bad as yours though. I ...
