So far all is corrected or accepted. Thanks to everyone.
For the Side Bags I just had to pull harder. I was being too gentle.
Two last questions (I think)
Question One. The throttle is slow to spring back. Not at all snappy. I guess I never noticed it because I use my wrist to accelerate and decelerate. Never release the grip.
Is there some easy way to fix this? (silicone spray on the cable though I am not sure how to get to it)
Question Two. Can I get some estimates what to sell the bike for. Thought I would have this baby for ever. I am forced to sell because of circumstances.
Here is the description.
2002 GL 1800 Black Gold Wing
Approximately 10,600 actual miles
Bike is in excellent shape
Never ever been laid down
New Dunlop Elite Tires with about 4000 miles
One helmet latch inside trunk broke
Throttle cable a little sluggish
2 almost brand new HJC flip helmets (Yellow and Black) Maybe 30 hours on 1; 3 hours on the other
Also comes with full Honda mechanical manual
