Re: SHIPPING

I can't, as I'm in the UK, but after shipping my GL1500 2000 miles by container, by land and sea, be VERY careful about your shipping arrangements, as these bikes are so easily damaged by the kind of mindless idiots who are likely to handle your prized possession en-route. For example, if the bike n...

Re: No Ethanol Fuel

Well in the UK, petrol (gas);is around £1.21 per litre at the moment. Multiply that by 3.785 to get US gallons, then covert to US Dollars at around 1.29 dollars to the pound, and you get... $5.89 per U.S. Gallon. ... I'd take the California prices all day long!!! Happy New Year too, and congrats on ...

Yes, 9 years after the first dual overhead cam (DOHC) motorcycle, the Peugeot 500 M.

Considering they were constrained by the technologies of ...

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 ...

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

US Gallon = 3.785 litres

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 ...

Re: Gos screen problem

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.

This process also de-values those early bikes, as it makes them less de...
