Re: How much risk is too much risk?

4 or 5 weeks ago the wife and I were on our 82 interstate riding over in Pa on Rt40 heading east to the Grantsville Md area. 3 times, I repeat 3 times, within an hour I had to do emergency maneuvers because of vehicles being operated by cellphones. then on I-68 coming back to Morgantown a black Ford...

progressive springs and air

I've read in several threads that air is not a requirement when running progressive springs in the forks. I've just rebuilt my shocks with the progressive springs and seals. with the new progressive springs in the shocks is air recommended. I did notice that the new springs were about 1/2" shorter t...

WP_20190415_13_35_53_Pro.jpg Oh yea forgot to mention this one came out of my gl1200. Figure they use the same thermostat. At any rate the burp hole should be a 12 o'clock with no obstruction.

Re: fan removal/installation

I figured as much. never hurts to ask though, huh. do you have a secret trick to burping these things. I've constantly got coolant being pushed out until air is gone. never had so much problem burping a radiator. thanks,

fan removal/installation

is it necessary to remove the radiator to swap out the fan assy? I worked in automotive collision for over 30 years and this radiator is the worst I've ever dealt with to burp and i'd just rather not remove it if I don't really have to. tks,

a/m cam seals

Aftermarket cam seals!! DON'T use them. I didn't get 1200 miles out of them. noticed a drip out of the left belt cover. Cam seal is seeping. removed the right side belt cover, right side cam seal also seeping. OEM seals are ordered from local Honda shop. live and learn I guess.
