Re: Helmet Storage Idea - Helmet Hitch

I made one similar to that and hang my helmets in the garage during riding season and during the winter I have them in the basement on large round bed post ends mounted on 4x4s. Helmets are covered with helmet bags.

Re: Heated Grip not Working

Sadly there have been a lot of these and a lot of fixes depending on what is causing the problem. The grips and the seat do work together and yes its usually the grips. Mostly I believe is a broken wire in the heated grip wiring on the right side of the bars. If you do an internet search you will fi...

So he should be able to put the fork back together and tension with the spring assembly if needed and he should be good to go.

Re: 02 1800 Front Right fork lower bolt - damper issues

I had a spare right fork cartridge that I looked at and mine spins too when I put a bolt in it and seat it to the bottom of the threads. It looks like it is in the tube by an O ring and a clip and that is how it should work. I believe the copper color at the bottom section of the threads is a Honda ...

Re: 02 1800 Front Right fork lower bolt - damper issues

Looking at other pictures you may be ok. It just may be the way its designed and may require an impact to spin the bolt fast enough to grab and lock in. I have a spare and will look.

Re: 02 1800 Front Right fork lower bolt - damper issues

Threads in the bottom of the dampener ? As in the end on the bolt threads are stripped out ?

You may be able to re-tap the threading trend dampener and buyable new bolt.

Re: Torque oil filter?

And speaking of oil filters, do you guys pre- oil the filter ? Do you fill with oil, let it soak into the filter media and fill again. I have done this over the years. So that the first start up there is no oil starvation.

Re: Had to Bleed Clutch Again

I have not had that problem with my 07 however I did put speed bleeders on the clutch and brakes for a easier maintenance. And when she is put away for the winter, a couple times a week, I cycle the clutch to keep everything moving.

Re: Winter store...

It is definitely ok to leave your bike on the center stand. I have a spare scissor jack that I put under the front of the bike to lift the front wheel and a small piece of wood or cardboard is perfectly fine also.

Re: rear shock

Removing the tank is the best way. Once removed you can easily see it and get to it. Yes the stainless steel line is a great investment while you have it apart.

Re: 2003 complete restauration

Since your going to have the engine out I would seriously look into the alternator drive gear replacement. The 01-05 had that issue as well as the frame braking issue, but I believe you have to split the case to do it.

I installed my new madstad last week. 14 inch on my 07. I played with it a little because our weather wasn't the best last week. Over the weekend I rode it up to around 65 mph and found that sweet spot. Rode it to work this morning and wow, the wind turbulance is virtually gone. It was a lot quieter...
