Re: Solder Seal

Reviews I have read say it doesn't work so well on 14 guage and thicker. Needs more solder. A little flux sure can't hurt to make sure the solder flows nice.

Re: Losw Electrical power

A fuse that melt usually has a draw near the max . It gets hot without blowing the fuse. You might have incandesant bulbs. Changing them to led might help.

Re: eyeglasses with a snug helmet... any tips??

I've had glasses with thin titanium bows for years . They flex out of the way if I am wearing a helmet.
As to my hair I am confident that I look good no matter how my hair is arranged. If I look like I ride a cycle that's because I do. My kids don't agree but what do they know.

Re: Replacing a couple of the relays in relay box left side

Since the goldwingdocs relays
have 4 terminals do they have both NO and NC contacts . If so can they be used to replace all the relays in question?

They do just die like that quite often. Dirty terminals also can cause a similar problem.

Re: always started until this spring

Do you know how many amps your charger is rated for? It could be too small to crank the starter. 10.4v is very low, too low to start the bike. Check the battery when you put the charger on it. Does the battery voltage go up? That will tell you if the charger is working at all. It should go up to 13....

Re: Problems with Oxford Heaterz Grips

Smaller gauge wire and more connections allowed less power to the grips. I hope you put a fuse in the new line near the battery.

Re: Water leak and intake

The first time I did it took about ten hours to take it apart and back together. Watch the tutorials on this site as you go. Might need some long screwdrivers and long hose pliers.

Re: OD Light on 1500 Aspencade

I had the same problem on mine. Checked every plug and circuit. 6 months later I replaced the bulb. Reach up under the dash and pull out the old one and put in a new one. Problem solved.
