I think my 88 is messed up

I was riding my 88 and finally noticed that the right handlebar seemed pulled back more than the left side, or maybe pushed inward some too. I thought no big deal, Ill buy a used handlebar later. I then tried taking my hands off the handlebars while moving to see what it did. It pulls to the left pr...

Race emulator kit, anyone try them?

Race Tech sells an race emulator valve for the front forks. The guys on the Magna boards love them, and I may get some for mine later. My 88 GL1500 needs the front forks redone and a brace. The race emulators will make the bike handle better and have less front end dive. It comes with heavier spring...

Re: Rear shocks, interchange

If they dont work Ill sell them and find an aftermarket shock for the GW. It has to be better than one functioning shock though. This is only temporary. Going to be tearing the bike apart this winter to try and fix everything that needs fixing. If these shocks arent the best, Ill take care of it then.

Rear shocks, interchange

My 88 rear air shock is not working due to no air pump. I asked about other shocks that could replace the rear shocks that were conventional, non air ride. Using Valkries rear shocks was an option. I found some nice shape used Progressive shocks from a 99 Valkrie on ebay for a good price shipped. I ...

Re: Heres my new money pit lol

Verified that it is an 88, says so on the frame and the vin shows it also. Someone removed something from the back of the left saddle bag. Looks like it was repainted also, probably the reason it is the wrong color. Got a new Clymer and brand new, never worn XL Bell full face helmet. Even has the tr...

Re: Low voltage

If the alternator was working, and it was unplugged, you run the risk of burning up the voltage regulator. Its going full field trying to keep the 14 volts. Its supplying as much power to the alternator as it can to keep the set voltage up. You should be ok though since it obviously wasnt charging a...

Heres my new money pit lol

Got an 88 GL1500, needsa lot of little stuff. Mechanically it seems good other than a weak front brake. It needs cosmetic stuff, electrical stuff that includes dead radio, cb, air pump, cruise, and probably more. Odometer doesnt work nor the lcd in the dash. Probably try to find a working assembly s...
