Motorcycle Tire Ceramic Balancing Beads
ITEM CODE: PG27738

03.06.2014

5 Stars

It's been awhile since I wrote anything on Dyna Beads. This is simply the best and most cost effective solution on the market. I've installed these on hundreds' of tires last year and offer to remove them free of charge if your dissatisfied. I've yet to have a single person come back and have been told time and time again they can't believe how my ride has changed. I think the best comment that I've heard is "I feel NOTHING". Guess that means he's one happy customer.

All Balls Steering Bearings for GL1800 & F6B GL1800 & F6B
ITEM CODE: TR416233,   SKU: TR416233

03.24.2013

5 Stars

Honda missed the boat by removing tapered bearings and going to ball bearings. Having installed over 250+ in all cases the steering stem wobble was corrected. Installation is not for the novice! Requires special tooling for both removal and installation and a torque wrench is a MUST! Installation does require proper torqueing procedure is a must.

Extra Long Chrome Front Fender Extension GL1800
ITEM CODE: BB52749,   SKU: BB52749

03.24.2013

1 Star

While the product is sound there's a growing concern that Fender extensions are the number one cause of Aft Fender cracking. Cracks are being reported at the upper mount bolts. In review of bikes with out fender extensions no cracks are noted where those with are cracked. Adding the extension actually puts the aft fender subject to increased air which in turn the turbulence associated may be the cause of increased stress on the mounting points..... Something to consider as the Aft Fender from Honda is fast approaching $300 bucks.

Rear Shock Spring
ITEM CODE: TR771173,   SKU: TR771173

01.30.2013

5 Stars

I love how the aftermarket has exploded with options for our bikes. It's great to have choices but like I always say "Don't let your eyes deceive you". GoldWingers in general spend thousands of dollars to chrome this and light up that but seldom think about critical maintenance items that need to be addressed. The suspension system on the GL1800 does a great job then after about 3 years we get the "jab" to our side and our co-rider say's "Easy on those bumps". This is a warning side that the bikes suspension needs attention. Remember, your co-rider is sitting aft of the rear suspension which acts much like a spring board. You as the rider aren't feeling what your co-rider is!

As options continue to increase it's important to slice through all the marketing. Cost of suspension upgrade are very wide and can easily take a big bite out of your pocket. No matter witch option you chose your bike will ride better as you are installing new material. Case in point was the first ride on that newly purchased GL1800. You told everyone that it's the best bike you ever ridden only now thinking about suspension upgrades. You can buy the OEM replacement for 1,500 and have that great feeling once again. However, you will find yourself getting jabbed in the sides in 3 years. Most after market solutions offer a greater pay load which in turn slows down the rate of spring compression. For me... the cost effective solution was the progressive spring replacement which I installed in 2005. Oh... about all that talk about the Pre-Loader settings.... My Pre-Loader doesn't engage till 8 and has been set at 6 with 2 up & a trailer.

Fork Brace
ITEM CODE: PG27281

01.30.2013

1 Star

Fork Braces in general are designed to aid with tube flex which is typical with dirt bikes and landings from hill jumps. When you look at the design of the GL1800 the placement of a Fork Brace is right above the upper slider bushing and the main fork housing. Factor in the tube wall thickness and if you have ever replaced a fork tube do to scratches/seal leaks the old tube can be used as a breaker bar extension. Case in point is ride with a brace for hundreds of miles and take it off and ride for hundreds of miles. The feeling that you will have is one that your pockets are a bit more empty as tube flex can't be felt nor displayed. Oh did I mention that wear to the upper & lower bushing continue with or without a brace installed. Bottom line, save your money with all after market fork braces and invest with suspension upgrades.

Rear Shock Hydraulic Pre-Loader Line
ITEM CODE: WS18LINE,   SKU: WS18LINE

01.30.2013

5 Stars

This is another example where the manufacture saved money at our expense. The key issue is the air that is inside the assembly, therefore owners aren't getting the full intended travel of the Pre-Loader. After changing countless numbers of rear springs, I've found a hand full where the factory line wasn't holding up. You have to go back and look at the overall bike factors to understand that the rear spring is built for a max of 405 lbs. It doesn't take to many Ice Cream stops till we find that we're pushing the up button on the Pre-Loader. Having air in the system does in fact limit the total serviceable limit of the system, however you have to factor in the total rear suspension in order to fully understand. Removing the air is a good thing but if you find your back to 25 on the panel it's time to replace your rear suspension. Don't be fooled that removing the air will fix all of your issues.

Intent is good but so is frequent stops for gas & water. I road to Texas last year and had a plastic bottle of wax in my side bag and had to toss it as the bottle blistered from the heat. The temp gauge read 100 degrees for several hours that day.

Forgot to mention.... you may have noticed that I rated the product with 5 stars. Yes, the design is rock solid. Finish holds up after many years of exposure and technically would do the job intended.
