Re: Getting a 93 Aspencade running after 4 years sitting

Update: 1) Test ride after Blackwing fork brace install. Bike feels funny now, loose some where up front.........also some binding. The bike seems to be bouncing at slow speed, like the front wheel is out of round lol. The forks are probably worn and used to the way they were before. Closer together...

I broke the side cover metal stud, now what?

Damnit! Added rear speakers today. While installing the poor performing fader harness I over tightened and broke off the drivers side metal stud for the side cover. My side cover has nothing holding the front portion now as the lower plastic peg on the cover was already missing. What is this metal s...

Re: Whats wrong with my cruise control?

Thank you for the ideas guys. I have not cleaned any switches yet. Is that really a possible cause of it not working at all? When I turn on the ignition and all the dash lights cycle for system check, the cruise on light also cycles. I also just replaced my speedo cable a few weeks back, works fine ...

Whats wrong with my cruise control?

Hi fellow wingers, So now that all my major repairs are done, for now. /crossesfingers Its time to address the non working cruise control. The 1 cruise light does cycle with the key ignition. Nothing else works. It does not light up or set no matter what I do. Everything else on the bike seems to wo...

Re: Brake light replacement

Hello all. I just upgraded to a 1999 GL 1500. I bought it used with 44 thousand miles. There are a few issues to deal with though. One of them is the lower running lights between the turn signal lights. The one that is kinda hazy. One of the bulbs is out.. I could'nt figure out how to get to the bu...

It's not uncommon to "see" a half tooth off...A full one is a lot easier to spot. I have to get ground level with the marks to line them up.What looks like a half tooth off looks ok when viewed straight on. A full tooth off can result in a poor running engine....maybe a burping in the intake or exh...

Stupid timing belt question

Hi gang, So I did my timing belt Saturday. Looked like original Honda labeled belts rusty and dirty, but not frayed. No stickers showing last change. Might never have been changed :o Bike has roughly 90k miles 1993. Looks like I dodged a big bullet! It was a lot easier then I thought it would be. Ho...

New update: Timing belt finally done. Gates belts T275 from Amazon, like $40 for the pair. Timing belt was easy but took hours in the hot sun. Did not remove hoses or drain coolant, non issue. Did pull wire for oil pressure sensor and some push tab sensor on top of timing area, temp sensor in radiat...

Re: Quick light bulb question

I'm dumb, and apparently lazy.

Some searching and googling solved it.

194 type bulb.

I see they carry some led's at advance auto parts that are type 194.

Think I will grab a few of those $10 each, for now, until later I will get the ones from Cyclemax.


Thanks,

If I were you NOVAwing, I would listen very carefully to the advice that CrystalPistol gave you. He is a retired Virginia trooper and knows what will likely get you a ticket. Of course you are free to do as you will, but you have been told what you can expect with the blue lighting and red on the f...

Thanks everyone for the good advice. Tank slappers, headshakers, death wobble whatever you wanna call it lol.

Death wobble almost killed me!

So last week otw to work i was on a back road, straight, rolling hills, doing 30-40mph let go of both handles for a second and before i knew it they were viciously wobbling back and forth. Felt like the bike was going to come apart. Somehow i managed to grab the handles and with all my strength got ...

The spring...It's purpose is suppose to provide the correct tension on the belt when there put on and then the idler plate is secured tight to the block.

Re: Question about timing belt components

The reason for changing the water pump on most cars is the pump is running on the timing belt. The 1500 water pump is separate and can be changed without removing the timing covers & they generally last a good long time. Spin the tensioner pulleys and if they are smooth you can reuse them if you wa...

Looking for front speakers 93 GL1500A

I have looked at the site, and online for the speakers people recommend. However it seems none of those are available anymore, or are very over priced. Cyclemax.com has been invaluable for parts so far, but I don't want their old cheap paper speakers, even though they are lower cost. I want this to ...
