Re: RAM X-Grip Handlebar Mount

Its good to have this discussion, for a wide variety of views..... The OP pictures were critical. THAANK YOU!!! Nobody is really talking about what model phone they have. (size) The big tablet users are happy? I've had an X-grip for a couple of months on an iPhone 5 (6?) X. Big size. The arms hold i...

Re: Help, poor fitting cowl

I have the same problem on a recently purchased, 1994. Noticed a bad gap on one side, just after purchase. Spent a couple hours with it off, squidging other panels, used hi-test outdoor velcro on some upper pieces, played with mounting screws- at the end, I moved the gap to the other side! And going...

Re: Chicago to Tucson- fuel problems

I'm putting in treatment in every tank. This is a 2000 mi trip, so I will not get a chance to run so much chemicals through the engine when I get home. Not so many miles when you are getting groceries. 8-)

Re: Chicago to Tucson- fuel problems

Update: I'm rolling! Siphoned tank out. It has pretty good rust in the bottom. Got out a lot of debris with hand. Wiped inside down. Will address it more thoroughly at destination. Engine is still noisy. Exhaust sounds like diesel engine. Maybe unrelated? Didn't notice it before? Wing was not taken ...

Re: Chicago to Tucson- fuel problems

One update- Got fuel filter out, full of rust debris and orange gas! Inspected airfilter, dirty but not infested with vermin. Plugged in universal filter, going to Honda shop to get two new filters. Idle still sounds bad. Any way to drain tank without removal? Is there a petcock at the bottom? Now, ...

Re: Chicago to Tucson- fuel problems

That makes sense, you are right. The float bowl is a reservoir, and it doesn't respond immediately to demand. Cycle could go many speeds/RPMs briefly without draining float bowl. Then, when I am at high demand, for longer miles, pump can't keep them full? I'm going to ride a little more tomorrow to...

Re: Chicago to Tucson- fuel problems

Fuel pump?
But only at highway speeds? And why recover and then keep going around town?
Right now (after a good cry and a nap) it is sitting and idling.
Sounds like a diesel engine. "put-put-put". Turns over fine, revs pretty good. Not smooth.

Chicago to Tucson- fuel problems

I hate to jump on this forum after just registering 4 days ago and no introduction. But I am pressed for time. Trying to ride from Chicago to Tucson during this nice weather opportunity. Flew from T. to C. to pick up an eBay purchased 1994 GL1500 Interstate with 42k miles. It has become a heartbrea...

Re: going to New Mexico Albuquerque

This is a little dated, but... I just took the scenic route from Albuquerque to Tucson. 9am to about 6pm, a days ride. Two weeks ago. I-40 west out of Alb. take exit for state rt 117 South (get gas, there is none more for a while). That connects to a state road 36, and then signs point you to Globe,...
