Re: auto volume control

If it's like the older models, there will be a speed sensor signal to control it. You could check that is working. Do you have a wiring diagram?

Re: Recommendation for battery tender for 2003 GL1800

Lifespan is dictated by design and maintenance. Some batteries are built down to a price while others are built up to a standard. Often you really do get what you pay for. How you use and take care of a battery also matters a lot. Also proper battery tenders are made to be plugged in continuously. I...

Re: need tail light and turn signals for naked GL1100i

Have a look on ebay, and/or a bike salvage yard for inspiration.
One of my favorites that I have on a couple of bikes is the all in one unit from Motodynamics. Not entirely street legal but I've never had any issue, so far and no stalks sticking out.

The trend is pretty clear. I think the yellow was wishful thinking at the presentation where this was given.


Maybe it will be dropped to bring out the PlatinumWing? :roll:

Re: 1983 GL1100 Aspencade front brake pads

You might want to try some OEM Honda pads. I know EBC is pretty good, but sometimes they mis the mark trying to fit too many applications with a single part number. You should be able to lock up either end with the stock brakes. I'm wondering if your unlinking is part of the problem. You mention tha...

Re: How to replace your cornering light bulbs

If you have power at the sockets, and the bulbs light when powered, obviously you are not getting that power from the socket to the bulb. Are you bulbs polarity specific? (Most LEDs are, but good ones are not). Without knowing how you are testing it's hard to know where to look next. You can power t...

Lithium Sulfur batteries might be just the ticket for an electric Wing. That is if it can move from the lab to the factory floor.

Re: Locked up brakes, crane strap location?

Without spreaders and a bunch of oddball rigging, there are not too many places where the plastics wouldn't be damaged, if not removed first. You could winch it up a ramp from the front wheel, but that wouldn't help you get it back off. I made some lifting beams to hoist mine from underneath.

Re: 1999 GL1500 Rear brake adjustment

Nothing to increase pressure except press harder on the pedal or add a booster. Pedal position is adjustable a little. If the rotor is warped at all the pads will retract too much so the pedal will be low. Stainless brake hoses do make a big difference. Brake hose expansion is barely detectable with...

Re: First time posters, say hello!

It depends. Some things are the same for all models and all years. Others confined to just the Interstate, and some to just the SE. The 88-89 have many differences. Then things were mostly common up to 96. 97-00 also carried the basics. However, there were always year to year changes. Like those stu...
