Re: very pleased

Glad to hear you are starting to stretch your legs with distance. Nice to hear you are bonding with your machine and friends. It's a wonderful way to decompress from the daily grind. As you spend more time in the saddle, you will see that as your bond and confidence grows with both distance and twis...

Re: Backpack with helmet holder

Duly noted on the welding. I'm sure that I will find something at harbor freight that will tickle my fancy. Upon further research I found a backpack from Shoei that fits the bill much better for a full face helmet. The backpack would be strapped into the backseat of the wing for the ride to work, an...

Backpack with helmet holder

Was looking for a backpack that would hold a helmet, backpack needed to be sturdy and able to hold things for work like lunch, my Dezl GPS for Trucking, power cords, etc. Haven't purchased it yet. Figured I'd share my research. Can't seem to find anything else that fits in terms of quality and sturd...

What is the best Table lift for Goldwing/Gl1100 prefer pneumatic

So I've been investigating what the best lift is at the sub $1000.00, and even sub $500.00 level. The only thing I've found is the harbor freight lift, and it's hydraulic. There are videos on how to convert it to air....but how about something that is good right out of the box. This site inspires me...

Re: Best helmet on a wing with a full windshield?

I have an evoline series 3 that I got from revzilla on a closeout about 2 years ago for $175. Love the helmet. Mh434 is right, this helmet is very unique, and build quality is spot on. Features are very functional and works for all weather.....also shark now makes integral bluetooth systems called s...

Re: Just acquired a 1983 GL1100 Interstate

You will find that the the rear brake pedal will be 150% better with the lube on the pivot point. As per wingadmin, I hope you used marine grade grease, and a stainless steel cotter pin. I just did this job on my 1983 aspencade, and what a difference on my rear brake. Good for another 36 years!!!

Blown Valkyrie Demo Video....A must watch for the boost!

This modded Valk is sounding very nice, and the roll on power is intense. Nice dash layout, just a nice execution of someones vision for creating an everyday driver with street manners and the ability to be voracious animal with a small twist of the throttle.

Re: Stuck rear brake pedal

Repair complete. The hook and pick set was helpful but not in the way I thought. I couldn't hook the head of the cotter pin, must have been in there as OEM, and at 36 years old it wasn't coming out even with liquid wrench. Used the pick to bend the pin up and down mid section in the center of the pi...

Re: Stuck rear brake pedal

Any recommendations on getting the cotter pin out for the brake pedal pivot......Broke the tail of the pin and it's flush with the pivot point. The head of the cotter pin is difficult to get at even with a motorcycle jack with straps. Tried needle nose vise grips couldn't get a grip on the head of t...

I think I'm going to opt to repair the base myself, I searched the part number out and couldn't find a compatible base for the gl1100A(I have the digital dash). I will be picking up a solder iron and solder and doing the fix indicated by Rbgerson. The 1983 switch for the Gl1100A is serviceable in th...
