I've just sold my PAN ST 1100 and bought a GL 1500 SE and i must admit, at present i find the wing a strange ride. plus I can't get the starting issue right
, it doe's not seem to fire up first time ! any guidence ?
Sounds like bike might just need good tuneup, plugs, filters, etc.
I know my 1500 starts immediately with a little choke (1/4) then back off as able.
As far as strange feeling it is a big bike & as a friend who recently upgraded to Wing said " It's sort of like sitting in a chair ". I would recommend some style of highway peg/board to help with that if that is the issue. Hope this helps.
By the way Welcome to the site. Good people & discussion here.
Hi guys. thanks for the advice and encouragement. It may have been lack of battery power as i charged it over night and it was fine this morning. Took it for my first real spin this morning and i must say i thourghly enjoyed it. Arms were aching a bit at first from the different riding position. but after an hour my arms were ok and i could feel a big grin of satisfaction developing.
Just curious Welsh...what is the actual difference between the Pan Euro ST's and the regular ST's? They look identical to me, and every dealer I spoke to couldn't tell me what the difference was between the Pan and mine. I know we are kinda still in the stone-age up here in Canada, but we do have tv, phones and web access now (yuk-yuk)
