Re: Rear car tire for GL1500SE tug

No. On a 1500 the pick up for the speedometer is on the front wheel.

Re: Rear car tire for GL1500SE tug

Thank you RoadRogue, that settle it... A picture is worst a 1000 words... I wanted to mount a Michelin because I manufactured tires with them for over 35 years... However in the 60 ratio they only have a summer or winter version. I live in Nova Scotia and you never know what the weather be like. So ...

Re: Rear car tire for GL1500SE tug

Thank you for your reply, I can see why this kind of complaints you arise. A 55 ratio would lower the bike by almost 7/8". A 60 ratio would lower it by only half of that... The EZ Steer will lower the front by 1/2" so the 60 ratio would keep the frame level without loosing too much ground clearance....

I am just missing a new set o...

Re: Stainless Steel Rear Brake Line and Rear Master Cylinder

Well Boony and Rednaxs60, I contacted Classic-Cycle and my lines are being made sometime this week. I will drive to pick them up as they're located an hour away from my place...

Re: Stainless Steel Rear Brake Line and Rear Master Cylinder

Thank you Offcenter, I was indeed on the wrong page... I wonder why Spiegler did not mention that when I asked questions about their lines? I did ask them how long the lines were and they were much longer than what I measured on the bike. Now I know why. They did mention that I should check to make ...

Stainless Steel Rear Brake Line and Rear Master Cylinder

I am getting my GL1500 SE ready for this coming season... I want to replace all the brake lines to Stainless Steel. I am going with Spliegler lines as they have an "alternate" kit to unlink the front brake. My question is with the rear line. I want to remove the steel section of the rear line. Has a...

Re: Gas mileage and sidecar questions...

Alan, I agreed with your conversion. 7.8 l/100 Kms should be a good target for me then... I am missing more than a decimal :o , I am missing a "0": I should have typed 10 l/100 Kms! May be you could tell me how your brakes are set-up: Is the front left disc un-linked from the rear? Where is your pic...
