Re: Pics of painted chrome garnish above headlight?

Wow that small pic of the black painted one looks really good! The bra also looks good but not as good as the paint ;) . I was thinking about vinyl or plastidip as well.

Tony, definitely keep sharing your progress, what color are you going to be painting?

Pics of painted chrome garnish above headlight?

Anyone who's painted the honking big chrome garnish below the windshield got pics to share? I was wondering how that would look color matched to the bike on the later 1500's but would like to see any and everything. Deciding if that's something I want to do...

Not sure either but wanted to take a minute and say that your friend obviously has excellent taste regarding his color choice. Of course I am slightly biased as you can see from my avatar pic :D

Re: Getting a 93 Aspencade running after 4 years sitting

That windshield looks pretty good, can’t imagine you’d get any static about the blue tint along the bottom. Is there much left on your to-do list (besides the grip maybe) or are you all caught up?

Re: Does anyone really use their CB radios any more?

Nah not at the moment but thinking down the road. If the time comes where I need additional switch space I’d rather use the CB spot instead of a solution like the master cylinder mounted switch panels. But you are right, it doesn’t cost anything to just leave it there :D

Re: Does anyone really use their CB radios any more?

I've been looking down at my CB panel almost since I got this bike thinking if I'd ever use it... I doubt it. The only person I've ever ridden with from time to time is my son and he probably doesn't know what a CB is, his generation is bluetooth all the way. If I broke down I'd always have my cell ...

Re: gl1500A no start

Another thing to check is the neutral safety switch, I replaced mine a few months ago because it was causing a no-start problem for me. Fortunately it's an inexpensive common part used on a lot of Hondas. It is located next to the oil dipstick, you can see pics on my thread: https://goldwingdocs.com...

Good review, glad to hear both systems are comparable and that the SoCalMotoGear's aren't noticeably better than the EC's I just bought! I also wanted to mention that I do have that little flyaway exactly like in your picture with my EC's so maybe it's not the bulbs but some minor bulb positioning w...

Re: fuel, ignition or worse peoblem?

Others have reported a vacuum developing in the fuel tank from a poorly venting gas cap causing it to be starved for fuel. Easy enough to see if that’s it, next time it happens pop the gas cap off and see if it’s back to normal, if so it’s your gas cap.

Re: Radio mute by itself...

I had also taken my radio that far apart not long ago to manually eject a cassette, mine has also been working fine ever since. I think they sometimes just need to some of those internal connectors removed/replaced to freshen up the connections :)

There used to be a standard DIN adapter available for the 1500 but it hasn't been made for a while. If we're putting in parts requests in the following thread maybe we could add that to the list! :D

Re: 1995 GL1500 SE 20th Anniversary Canadian Edition

Here's what I did. I connected an automotive 30 amp socket/relay to the accessory terminals at the top of the fuse panel on the left side of the bike, and that relay switches battery power to an aux fuse panel. The relay and socket are small and live under the seat, the aux fuse panel is velcro'd to...

Re: Aux input for the cassette deck ??? HELP!

It depends on how the aux circuit is incorporated. On my radio, I intercepted the preamp lines, and ran them through a relay. I can choose either the radio/tape audio, or my audio, depending on the relay. This relay is then switched using a switch (or in my case, an electronic controller that I bui...

Re: Questions about our clutch, is mine working right?

I’ve always thought the clutch engagement point was out a bit further than I would’ve expected on mine too. I removed the pivot pin and lubed it and it was fine, the clutch has always worked fine and held solid. I’m just chalking it up to that’s how it is and not worrying about it.

Re: Aux input for the cassette deck ??? HELP!

I believe the cassette function needs to be working normally, if it isn't then you can either repair the cassette function in order to use the aux input with cassette or others have made the aux input connection on the FM function instead. If I recall this requires cutting circuit traces and incorpo...
