"New" Ride

Post by TheChief »



Picked up a 2000 GL1500 with a Voyager kit on Oct. 20th. Just over 32K on the odo.

Thanks.

Yep, she's a beauty alright.

I really wasn't looking for another bike, but I just couldn't resist...

Actually, yes it does.

The '99 is mechanically sound but it is somewhat cosmetically challenged. I knew the bike had been dropped, but what I didn't know is portions of the tupperware support structure are deformed to the extent that some attachment points are off enough to cause mounting tabs to fail, particularly in the area of the left saddle bag and the rear wheel cover between the left and right saddle bags.

There is also some misalignment in the front cowl area and between the trunk bottom and the trunk lid.

Just a teaser update..

Did my normal winter routine with the 2000, got the fenders painted, and now I'm struggling with the lights.

Apparently the "mechanic" who wired up the Voyager kit was drunk.. I messed with this for a while and I finally broke down and ordered a isolation harness from CycleMax. I'll post some pics with she's done...
