Re: What other jobs to do while changing tires?

Thanks for your advice MikeB. I think I found it. From the photos, the later drive web certainly seems to have 5 pegs, and the cush blocks have aluminium sleeves.

Re: What other jobs to do while changing tires?

pull the driveshaft and grease the splines, and the rubber bumpers in the wheel hub. Can someone clarify re the rubber cush-drive in the rear wheel please. I know that 88/89 wheels had five pins & rubbers vs the later six, but which have steel tubes embedded in the rubbers to accept the pins, a...

Re: 96 gl1500 radio cover

There was a New Original Stock one on eBay too, all wrapped nicely in its Honda polythene.
I would have happily paid too much for it, if it were the correct brown for my bike.

...I'm really glad @canuck623.
I was originally unsure whether to share it, but it seems quite a few folks here enjoyed them as much as I did.

The videos were silenced or removed for a while, so I'm glad to see they are back again.

Re: Bike Lift Advice in the UK please

About 5" to 6" here. Just enough to cause problems. Should be gone by about Thursday, as rain due Wednesday. -5 Celsius tonight in the Midlands, so the snow should have a nice crispy top on it in the morning.

With pleasure Richard. This will probably get done around Easter-time. Unfortunately have a list of spring jobs to achieve first, once this snow passes.

Keep Covid Safe :D

Re: Bike Lift Advice in the UK please

Sadanorakman Have you tried lifting the front wheel of a GL1500? I don't think a strop would fit well with the plastic bits in the way either. If you go for a turntable, then may I suggest something like this to allow an easier front end lift and rotation about the turntable? https://www.amazon.co....

PROPS Sadanorakman Thank you OL_ROAD_DAWG. I confess, I had to google 'PROPS', as I'd never heard of it before. It is said that we follow the U.S. by about 10 years over here, so maybe it's an Americanism that has made it as far as our youth, but not as far as this middle-aged fart! ...Love your Av...

Re: Bike Lift Advice in the UK please

I have a steel version of one of those hydraulic lifts. It is close to its limit lifting my GL1500, in terms of the hydraulic cylinder. As always Scott, you bring excellent advice thank you. This is exactly one of the aspects I was pondering. I can buy a 2-3 tonne trolley jack, and it wheezes by th...

Re: Bike Lift Advice in the UK please

Thanks again Viking, particularly on your feedback re the rigidity and stability of the hydraulic lifts. I'll make sure I get a steel one, not aluminium! I don't have an endless budget, and I have very limited space. I think the best thing I can therefore do is go for one of these lifts, and a separ...

Re: Bike Lift Advice in the UK please

Thank you Viking. Putting the stability to one side for a moment, do these at least lift such a large bike adequately, or do you get the sense that they are struggling, or on the verge of twisting or deforming? The slabbed area is 100% level. It is covered in what we call 'council pavers', which are...

Bike Lift Advice in the UK please

Hi all, hope you're keeping safe in these testing times. I'm looking for advice on a suitable hydraulic bike lift/trolley in the UK for my 1991 GL1500 SE please. I figure my bike weighs around 880lb (400Kg) with a full tank. It must be able to spin the bike around nose to tail. Been looking at ones ...

Re: Should I replace all the relays

Whilst you could take the attitude of 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it', if you have enough new relays to swap them all out now, then why don't you do just that? If the originals have worked for 25 years, then the replacements should also. Any one of the originals could fail or go intermittent at an...

I know I'm late to the party, but 50:50 mix of diesel and ATF, or diesel and engine oil makes the most amazing penetrating fluid.
