1. Inspect the motorcycle for a punch mark as described in Identification on page 2. If a punch mark is present no further action is necessary, return the unit to the customer. 2. Qualify the unit/customer as follows: •Is the tire on the motorcycle the original factory installed tire? •Is the air pressure loss more than three psi per month? Note: Refer to page 145 in the Owner’s Manual. “Even tires that are in good condition may lose one to two psi per month if not checked and adjusted regularly” . If the GL1800 meets the above qualifications, proceed with the repair procedure. 3. Place the motorcycle on a lift and secure it on the centerstand. 4. Remove the rear wheel as described on page 14-9 of the Service Manual. 5. Starting at the valve stem/balance mark area, carefully remove the rear tire from the wheel. Be sure to use plenty of commercially available tire lubricant on the inside and outside of both beads. 6. Carefully inspect the entire circumference of both tire beads. Inspect both the inside and outside of the bead for any distortion or injuries. See examples of injuries below. 2001 – 2002 GL1800/GL1800A Rear Tire Inspection GL1800 #6 OCTOBER 2001 MTB 9430 (0109) CUSTOMER INFORMATION: The information in this bulletin is intended for use only by skilled technicians who have the proper tools, equipment, and training to correctly and safely maintain your Honda.

2004-2010 4Runner 2007-2010 Avalon, Camry, Camry HV, RAV4, Sienna 2008-2010 Corolla, FJ Cruiser, Highlander, Highlander HV, Matrix, Yar is 2006-2010 Land Cruiser, Prius, Tacoma 2005-2010 Sequoia, Tundra 2007-2008 Solara 2009-2010 Venza The purpose of this bulletin is to provide a procedure to adjust tire pressure correctly when outside temperature is significantly colder or warmer than shop temperature. Seasonal temperature change can dramatically alter tire pressure, which can cause the tire pressure warning lamp to illuminate. Tire temperature is dependent on”cold”tire pressure, driving distance and speed, ambient temperature and road surface temperature. As the temperature of the tire changes, air in the tire expands and contr acts, changing the tire’sairpressure. The cold tire pressure for all Toyota models will vary and will need to be adjusted accordingly. “Cold”tire pressure, as shown on the tire pressure label on our vehicles, is generally considered to be the pressure in a tire that has not been driven in the past 4 hours and has been parked outdoors. The TPWS MUST be initialized with the tire pressure marked on the vehicle placard. Tires are then adjusted according to the information in this bulletin to ensure that the TPWS light does not illuminate unnecessarily.

INSTALLATION 1. Remove existing rear wheel assembly. Save axle, axle nut, brake disc, and wheel spacers for kit installation. Refer to REAR WHEEL in Service Manual. NOTES Prior to removing or installing the wheel, the rear brake caliper must be removed. The cotter pin or spring clip for the axle nut must be replaced. They are available for purchase from a dealer. See a dealer for the correct part number for your model motorcycle. Use plastic protectors on tire mounting tools and rim clamps when mounting a tire to a painted wheel. For wide low profile tires a tire mounting machine with a second arm to press down on the sidewall while the wheel is rotating is recommended. When mounting tires, liberally use tire lube on the wheel and tire. For tire removal, use plastic inserts between the rim and tire after breaking the bead to create a large enough gap for the rim clamps. Do not re-use brake disc screws. Re-using disc screws can result in torque loss and damage to rotor and/or brake assembly. (00319b) Do not re-use sprocket mounting screws. Re-using sprocket mounting screws can result in torque loss and damage to the sprocket and/or belt assembly. (00480b) 2. See Figure 1. Install valve stem assembly (E) on wheel. Refer to TIRES in service manual. 3. Assemble wheel installation kit components, stock brake disc, and sprocket to wheel using the service parts table. Refer to REAR WHEEL in Service Manual. NOTES Install the primary bearing first using service manual and WHEEL BEARING REMOVER/INSTALLER. The machined grooves in the hub face indicate the primary bearing side. 4. Install rear wheel (1), stock axle, and stock spacers to motorcycle. Refer to REAR WHEEL in service manual. MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING Chrome parts must be maintained regularly to keep their original shine and luster. 1.
