Is There a Knowledgeable 1500 Rider in Houston?

Post by StrongEagle »



That would be willing to trade a lunch/coffee/beer for a "tour" of the Wing? How to get the various covers off, any other tips such as airing tires, oil checks, etc. Call it a familiarization routine, if you will... kind of like first time pilots get to do with their first airplane.

Thank you.

This site has a place you can look at
viewforum.php?f=14
There are many video's on line that will show you how to do several things on your wing. Most them show you how to remove the parts to do the project.
For instance google oil change on a 1500 , or air filter change, or seat removal,

Thank you for all the replies. There is a wealth of information at the links provided... and I see that the plastic comes off just like the side covers on my Valk... just more of 'em!

Cheers.!

StrongEagle,
I don’t know about “knowledgable”, but I have been in mine pretty deep. Just about all the knowledge I get is from this forum.
I was in the Woodlands area for 5 months with work, but I’m back in Rockport till July. I’m being sent back to the office in the Woodlands around July for a few months, maybe we can get together then.
If you get to the Rockport/Corpus Christi area let me know, we can try to meet up.

For sure... a trip down to the Rockport area might be fun. And, when you get to the Woodlands, we could do a bit of east Texas Piney woods riding... nice roads.

Cheers.

With the weather we have had lately you may have to get a Waverunner to get here. We got 5 1/2” of rain between 11 pm Thursday night and 4 am Friday morning. I see where Houston is getting most of the rain though.

Yes, we got 4 1/2 inches Thursday night over a period of 4 hours. No more, though. Folks in Kingwood and Sugar Land got whacked a lot harder.
