Re: Extra Fuel Tank

I'm not sure why the bubbles from filling the factory fuel tank from a low pressure aux. pump would not dissipate quickly. Ed I personally don't see a great risk of bubbles being introduced into the fuel system . Perhaps someone here has knowledge to dispute that? You'd be topping up the main tank ...

Re: Extra Fuel Tank

Bet my gl1500 does 20% more miles per gallon than most of yours...





...oh bother; that's because my gallons are 20% bigger than most of yours! :D :D :D

US Gallon = 3.785 litres
UK gallon =4.546 litres (20.1% larger)

Yep, in the UK, the zipper is on your left when wearing the jacket/coat/hoodie/cardigan/tracksuit-top. Doesn't matter whether male or female.

Subscribed. #46.

Lovely voice, and very attractive lady.
I would like to hear her studio recorded through a Large Diaphragm Condenser, although maybe a Ribbon mic would be more appropriate for both her voice, and the material she is singing.

Re: Suggestions for front speakers for GL1100 Aspencade Aftermarket stereo

I'm going to suggest you go and buy a compact Class-D amp. Why? Because driving whatever speakers you buy at too high a volume-setting on your current stereo will likely damage them, but not for the reason that you may think!!! You are not putting too much energy into them period, you are putting a ...

Very true. I didn't do the video. I completely realised that newday777. I was trying to add some value to the conversation from my professional experience. I'd hate for people to watch a video that says 'like a pro', and think that the technique shown is spot-on, when in reality it was pretty poor.

Re: Installing 4 Inch Replacement Front Speakers

I was just looking into the JBL 3 Ohm Speakers I have used before, and unfortunately they do a 4" and a 5" one, with the 5" looking to be too large, and the 4" one being similar to the Polk's, i.e. being actually a little smaller than the OEM ones. OEM Speaker, courtesy of another thread on this sit...

Re: Installing 4 Inch Replacement Front Speakers

1 ohm will make no noticable difference at all it will just cause the output devices to draw less current resulting in an un-noticable lower amplifier output. I'd just copy me with the 4" speakers and a bit of perspex, most car speakers have plastic cones which makes the waterproof. I respectfully ...

Re: Installing 4 Inch Replacement Front Speakers

Good job sir! For those that don't know, it's important to stop the sound waves from the rear of the speaker leaking around the edge and mingling with the sound waves generated by the front of the speaker: This tends to null out most of the bass. By having a good effective baffle in place like the p...

Yes I was thinking straight after I posted, that Honda had a major rework of quite a few bits after the 88-89 models. Still, suspension and grab handles... You'd have thought they could have had that ironed out two years ago.

Re: New 2020 GL1800 Changes

So now Honda have had the early adopters perform almost two years of free field testing for them at their own expense, they have now been able to introduce new features that should arguably have been part of the original design. This process also de-values those early bikes, as it makes them less de...

Re: GL1800 Quad?

True. A conventional trike is very unstable in decelerating turns. You know, when you're in an emergency situation, have to brake and swerve to avoid something, that's when the conventional trike will pitch you off. A reverse trike is only unstable in accelerating turns, and the Can-Am Spyders all ...
