Re: Replacement headlights

I also had the dilemma of what to do with the headlights on my 94SE. After pouring through these pages I decided to go with the HID upgrade. I was at Laconia last year as its only a short 75mi ride north and bought a set of SoCalMoto HIDs for $150, same as the web site. Having 63 years experience wi...

Re: will jumping my bike off from car hurt it?

The ONLY reason I even looked at this thread was to see if anyone else saw the Yogi Berra in this. My friends you did not disappoint. We all know what he wanted to say but the execution was flawed.

Startron is not the same as SeaFoam, but they do pretty much the same thing, only in different ways. My preference is for the Startron due to my great success with it. I should have added more history. Both my Goldwing and ACE had been idle for a while. The ACE had been sitting for three years and I...

Re: Idle Surge

I also had some surging with my '94 SE. I added an ounce of Starbrite Startron to each tank and it performed as advertised. After the first tank my idle speed went up 200-250 rpm and the low end torque was greatly improved. No instrumentation proof, just years of twisting my right wrist. I now add a...
