New box of goodies from Cyclemax

Post by scty_p » Mon May 28, 2018 12:55 pm



I just got a new box of goodies for my GL1500! :D This is my first time ordering from Cyclemax and it won't be my last. I've got lots of work to do now! Progressive fork springs, shifter pivot, new plugs, new filters, and Pathfinder LEDs for up front. Now, where to start... :)

Forks............just in case you ask why, I have no idea why.
If at first you don't succeed, hide the evidence.

i like ordering from CycleMax

there website only shows what is "In Stock" right now. that is a feature of the software they are using for the cash register system, it is all tied into the Warehouse stock room.

and they keep your orders on file, so you can go to "MyAccount" and review what you ordered last time.

:lol: Me either, but that's where I've been looking too! :lol:
I've got to get the allen wrench or socket for the cap. Then decide weather to take the forks off or leave the on to do the springs? Decisions, decisions :roll:

The surprising thing is they don't make you do that to change the oil! :lol: :roll: :mrgreen:
They say 98% of all Hardleys ever made are still on the road..... The other 2% made it home. :lol:

Sct_P,

The springs are under a great amount of pressure and to remove them without the correct tool to compress the spring will literally tear the last couple of internal threads from the top of the fork causing permanent damage which cannot be repaired.

To save yourself a large amount of grief, agony and spending extra money, you might consider either buying or making a spring compressor. You can buy a factory one from Cyclemax or if your handy with a welder and grinder you an make one for about $25.00. You might find the plans on this website for at www.goldwingfacts.com

Oh, don't forget the fork seals and bushings

Bob
