After removing more than a few mouse condos from our air boxes I finally put an end to it...now they eat my wiring.:wtf: I put a piece of 4" mesh over the air inlet of the bikes snorkel. I used 1/4 or 3/8 galvanized fencing material and bent/cut it to suit. Hold it in place with wire after fitting then silicone seal it. No more nests. Another taboo subject is oil on the outside of a wing. While you're rolling around on the floor doing winter projects to the ol" girl give the sidestand pivot a couple drops of oil and see how much easier it works. You will be surprised.

Another member did the mesh trick a while back, it does seem to work.

I use chain wax (from the other bike) on the kickstand. It stays there, and it works. I also use it on my cages hood, trunk and door latches.

if you have your own garage just get a garage cat and that'll take care of your issues my dad has a big garage and he has his own female cat them are the best hunters, he just puts her in the garage all the time leaves a small electric heater on low for her to warm up next to on the cold nights, she dosent eat the mice shes picky she will pile up the dead ones and he'll throw them away and she gets a special treat for each one usually a can of wet cat food or some special cat treats, its a good relationship she keeps his stuff mice/rat free he feeds her

How can the mice get in there if Goldwings don't sit still?

If you get a garage cat make sure it is from a litter of a cat that mouses. Mousing is a trait that is passed down by the mother cat teaching them the skill. It is not a genetic thing.

The best mousers are the real barncats that you cannot handle or touch. Just give them enough food to keep them alive and if they want more they have to hunt for it.
