Re: footwear

Hey Wildwilly018,
Yes, these boots have a rubber "work" sole and they grip very well. I bought them for riding because of the rubber sole, the arch support and cushioning inside AND they look great too! They're reasonably priced as well.

Which Brake Pads?

2000SE I'm going to be replacing both front and rear brake pads this year and my first thought is to purchase the oem pads. Then I thought it might be good to ask what experience others have had with different brands and/or materials that may perform better than the Hondaline brake pads. Any suggest...

Hey oldmopars, I see you hail from Selah. I used to live there and would move back in a heartbeat for the weather and riding!

Re: Old Aleternator

I also replaced my OEM alternator for a 90 AMP unit. It only had just over 10,000 miles on it. I'm going to take it to a local company that rebuilds alternators and have them upgrade it as large (amps) as possible for the frame so I have a backup..................

Any idea what the diameter of the original Firecreek gauges are? They fill out the panel nicely.

Is there a port that an oil pressure sensor for a gauge could be connected too on a 2000 GL1500?

Re: Gl1500 fuel pump

I have a 2000SE that had this exact issue. I have effectively worked around this issue by installing a miniature vacuum pump to open the fuel petcock along with two 1/16" check valves on the vacuum lines. I then installed a separate miniature pushbutton switch in the right hand fairing pocket that i...

Re: Turn Signal Timing

To my limited understanding.. The flashers will self cancel when any or all of 3 conditions are met. A internal timer has lapsed. The steering has been moved. The speed has reached a predetermined limit. And all are built into the cancler module. If yours is out of specs..Replace it or bypass it. H...

Turn Signal Timing

My turn signals work perfectly in all ways according to what I've read in the manual and been able to find on-line. My question is, does anyone know how to get the turn signals to stay on until I manually turn them off or until I complete a turn and they self cancel? I like to give plenty of "notice...

Re: Shortcut question on Fork Seal replacement

Yes, definitely try a fork seal cleaner tool. My son's 2003 VTX1800 has never had its seals changed. So before we installed the progressive springs in it, we tried the tool that actually snaps onto the fork first to see if we could clean the seals and stop the slight leak before we bought the parts ...
