Radio

Well I had time today to crawl around and look at it. 2002 LTE. Need a rear tire for sure. Got the brake fluid up to the max. Under the seat and 2 resorvors. Only one was down to the min mark. Hopefully that will keep the light from flashing every now and then.

Next thing I want to do is remove the CB radio. Then I need some way to hook my I-pod to the radio. I don't remember if I saw something about that on here or not. If anybody knows how or what to do to do that please let me know. Other than that I think I'm pretty good so far.

Best riding bike I've ever had. Smooth and strong. Almost 8900 miles on it now. Thanks for all the help......

Welcome to the fold. Yes that should stop the flashing lights.

Look through the "Accessories, Gadget & Gear" area "IPOD/MP3" threads back about 4 to 5 pages there are several posts on the AUX input cable that you can buy and plug into the back of the radio.

Enjoy the ride.

Re: Radio

Hi,

That low fluid can be an indication your rear pads are getting worn. I'd check them out and replace.

Re: Radio

Thanks for mentioning that Mike, I had forgotten to.


That is a good reason the fluid was low, pads are about worn out. Make sure when you replace them to pull a bit of the added fluid out so it won't overflow when you push back the pistons. It can get messy.
