Re: Getting a 93 Aspencade running after 4 years sitting

When it rains, I need a seat cover. A cover i can sit on and ride while its raining. I am thinking about ordering this one. ...

Re: Time for a 3D printer?

I got through to the owner at Firecreek, , ,He got rid of the molds to a friend in an "exchange", , ,the friend then got rid of the molds to an unknown truck driver passing through the area. The original molds are no longer an option to getting a panel done. Luckily, or maybe not, I'm working on CA...

Re: New speakers-Polk DB-521 up front, Polk DB-501 in back

Saturday's project, almost done. Gotta reinstall the dash tomorrow. Enlarged the front speaker cutout by about another 1/4". Had to really trim the top and bottom edges of the 521's, and trim all four sides of the 510's to make them fit in back. uD45ePNCwe0 Your speakers look good and sound good to...

Re: 1500 won't start after juming battery

Check kill switch.

Check fuel pump signal from ecu wire to fuel pump when cranking.

And or check fuel pump by jumping power from battery to pump.

That wing looks good! Love that blue color too.
Thank you! We love it too.

It had to be blue or white. I wanted white, wife and me both love blue. A blue bike fell in my lap.

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? Thanks! I love the new shield, but it seems a bit narrow. Could be my imagination lol. Fyi the Memphis...

Re: New to me GL 1500 SEY 2000

The info I posted is recent. I just dealt with the guy earlier this summer. Perfectly smooth transaction. Blackwing or nothing imho. No other brace is as good. They are subpar design compared to his. Not worth $50 for a half-ass fix from another "brace" that doesn't really brace anything. Call him, ...

I don't think those tints are very dark so you should be ok. Why don't you PM CrystalPistol and ask him if he knows. He is familiar with the laws in VA.
Thanks for the advice, I also PM'd Crystal.

Re: fuel, ignition or worse peoblem?

Easy enough to rule out fuel. Pull the fuel line off the filter exit side and use a jumper wire from battery to the fuel pump postive point. That will make the pump run, point it into a bucket lol. If you search there is also a way to measure output volume with a measuring cup to make sure pump is n...
