Tupperware removal

Post by 20SOS »



I had my fork seals replaced by the dealer. Now I discover the linkage for the feet heat vents is not connected. How much tuppperware will I have to remove to get to it? Thanks in advance for all replies

Personally I would take it back to the dealer and have them correct the issue if they caused it...YOU shouldn't have to fix their mistake. But the question to really ask is what all was removed to fix the fork seals. I just rebuilt my forks and added new bushings, seal and progressive springs. Only tupperware that came off was the front fenders and the speaker shelter...see picture

Thanks for the reply. I could take it back for the fix. But since I am new to the GW it will be a learning experience. At my age (76) this will be my last bike. I need to learn how to get to things myself.

The first place to look would be at the lever on the left side. If they removed the shelter, they may not have clipped the cable in it's slot. You will have to remove the left pocket.

I have fixed the foot warmer cable. Now I find they also left the radio antenna disconnected. This time I am going to have them fix thier own screw up.

There was no reason to remove the shelter, only the meter panel. I have pulled the shocks on two 1800's and replaced the triple tree bearings without removing the shelter. Looks as though they did more work than was needed and caused multiple problems.
