Re: Synthetic Oil ??

I changed the oil on my 2021 DCT Tour at the 4000-mile service and used Honda full synthetic HP4S. Have 8000 miles on the bike now with no problems. I plan on staying with the Honda HP4S as long as I have the bike.

Re: Strange "Snowflake" display

Just worked on friend's 2020 DCT Tour with a similar problem. His was easy to find. He was installing a belly pan/engine guard and got careless. He pinched/cut a wire to one of the sensors on the lower front of the engine. I think it was the clutch oil pressure sensor. The display was similar, and t...

Re: GPS works but won't track

Most likely, the speed sense line to the nav board is the problem. If it were me, I would check all the connectors from going to the nav board. Also check and see if the speed sense line to the nav board has the nav override mod. This is a mod where you put a switch in the speed sense line and the n...

Re: GPS works but won't track

I am assuming the speedo is working. Does the gps pointer relocat to the current location ever time you stop ? If so check the speed sense line to the nav board.

Re: Hello all, my lovely 'new' bike has died on me

If it was under/behind the dash the only thing I can think of would be the the turn signal flasher or the dash itself. but those are just guesses.

Re: Hello all, my lovely 'new' bike has died on me

Have you checked the voltage when the bike is running. Sounds like the alternator may not be charging the battery. with the bike running the voltage should be above 13.5 volts at at least 2000 rpm.
Can you jump start the bike ?

That wont work on a gl1800 nav that uses the CF card. It may work on the gl1800 2009 - 2010 nav. 2012-2017 has the import trip feature built in.

Re: GPS firmware V2.7 and V4.6

Yes . In the USA 2009 was the start of the newnav systems that used SD cards and were able to load routes. In all other countries that wasn't possible until 2012. Also you need to check for the european FW for your bike. I haven't researched it in awhile but I believe the european FW is up to 2.7 . ...

Re: LED FLASHER

I assume you are asking about the mod. You can cut the run on the flasher circuit board that goes from the shunt the big heavy wire, to the IC. This is the bulb out sense line that causes the lights to hyper flash when a bulb is out. Have done this mod on three OEM flashers and works great with LEDs...

Re: LED FLASHER

It is a pain but you can unbolt the dash to get to the flasher. As far as LED flashers I believe some of the major suppliers have them. If you know what to do you can mod the OEM flasher to work with LEDs. If you switch to an LED compatible flasher it should work with the OEM bulbs but you lose the ...

Re: Adding a CD changer

The cord will come with the device you order. Have you decide whether you are going with the CD or MP3 ?
You will have to drill a hole in the back of the trunk to access the bikes wiring harness under the seat.

Check out the MP3 players for your bike. The CD changer is more trouble than it is worth. Had the changer and replaced it with the MP3 player and glad I did. The MP3 player will allow you to have about a 1000 song available to you through your handle bar controls. I am not sure which one is the best...
