Hi Patinldaho

Well done, I don't know much about the 86 GL1200 interstate, but never the less, I know the feeling when you service your machine your self. I with the help of the Guru's and Redwing got my 1500 serviced I learnt so much, to be honest I was very apprehensive about tackling the job, but I really enjoyed it. I have just got back from a 350 mile trip and the bike ran like a dream.

Hey manxblackcat :waving:There must be another Redwing on this forum, because i wouldn't be able to help anyone. :stumped: Where could you complete 350 miles on the Isle of Man. :crying: You must have been going around and around and around. Did you not get dizzy.? :stumped:

P.S. Congrats on your promotion to "Very Active Member"

Thanks for the comments.

I actually enjoy the wrenchin on my own stuff and for a few friends.

So it's a labor of love makes it real easy to do.

I'm impressed with the amount of work you accomplished in two days! I'm afraid I tend to be a bit more leisurely. Good feeling to get her going though, can't get that from turning the bike over to a shop.

I am more than impressed.

But then I sit and study each screw, nut and bolt. Read the history of each wee piece and research as much as I can about it's function .....Actually means I investigate far more than I fix!!

Then when I break down, I can knowledgably tell you why!!

I might have a small advantage.

I grewup playing in a semi repair shop my dad owned and around 8 years old got handed a grease gun and shownwhat to do with it.I think cuz when your 8 your free labor;) At 13 i rebuilt my first Detroit diesel. I have rebuilt so many car and truck engines & transmissions it must be near a couple thousand not to mention all the tuneups and maintenance. Bad thing is after growing up with it now i HATE working on stuff for people and dont do it anymore exept for myself and a few friends.

Cant imagine what all i listed andforgot tolist would have cost me in a shop but im sure BIG dollars sense they have the manuals and i just had to use know how.

Glad to hear the bike is working well for you. After I finish the timing belts and coolant I should be caught up with you. I still have a month before the roads are snow and ice free so I am taking my time. Plus, I've never taken anything mechanical apart before so I go a bit slower from the get-go.
