    Electrical power for radio

    Haha. Kind of embarrassing really as I work as an Aircraft Mechanic. I never had a battery terminal come loose before now. Also no other obvious clues as to the battery, bike started fine ran fine headlight turnsignals all worked.

    Electrical power for radio

    Well gentlemen I am happy to say that I have found the problem and a little embarrassed too. Earlier this week I rode the bike an easy 100 miles. The radio started acting up close to home so I shut it down and just used my helmet audio. When I got to my destination I shut down for a few minutes...

    Electrical power for radio

    I assumed that is what is happening and yes that is the way I solved it. But the real question is why was it fine for over 1000 miles and then started happening? Also even at idle I have positive voltage 12.9 or better at highway speed I can't believe my system with the current upgrades couldn't...

    Electrical power for radio

    Ok I know we don't all ride the same bike or even the same brand but I am wondering if anyone else has seen this. First the bike is a 1982 Suzuki GS850G. It has a new (made by me) wiring harness, i replaced every wire and the main wirinig side connectors. This means any device switch or what...

    Anyone going to Oshkosh this year?

    You should see it at night when the old girl is tucked in. The tent wasnt cheap and it's a little large packed but it is so nice to be able to stand up inside to change clothes. Also with the bike inside the tent I use its battery to charge my phone at night.

    my 1980 Suzuki GS1000G

    I would love another gear on my GS850G, but she seems quite happy cruising at 75 80. I am even taking her (at least thats the plan) on an 1800 mile adventure Monday. The 850 has a little vibration at speeds but a throttle lock (poor boy's cruise) and its very easy to deal with.

    Cycle sound questions.

    Thanks Brian, I bought a "no mech" unit.... guess I am old didn't know such a thing existed until I saw it here. It is really too much for a bike but I like toys. It has bo mechanism so its about half the size of a normal head unit. Just finished it today now whrn I get my replacement fairing...

    Cycle sound questions.

    Thank you Scott and Larry. I did forget about the bikes parking light position on the ignition switch. That would definitely be the easiest. On my GS it only operates the tail light since the rear trunsignals are 2 wire only and I dont have the front connected. The tail light is an LED too so...

    Taking more shape - 1980 GS850

    Not to take from Dave's post but I have not had any issues with the ball hitch and lean angles. Although I will say I am more careful when pulling my two wheeled trailer.

    Cycle sound questions.

    A couple of queations. The simple one first. The two mounting brackets that go from the speaker to the top clamp bolts of the windscreen, are all that hold the cycle sound inplace? I looked at the manual and thats all I saw....seems like it would move around and vibrate. Next as I am a gadget...

    Scott-E, it looks like the shipping is going to be about $40.... it was a wake up call for me, I had no idea it was going to be soo much. I looked at all three UPS, USPS and FedEx. Let me know if you're still interested.

    Replacement Windshield Supplier?

    I ordered m8ne from ebay, it's a Slipstream, standard size with vents. Vents and mounting hardware included shipped in less than a week for just under 100. So far it seems really nice.
