Re: 2018 Goldwing Update

Hi, Thunder. You might want to check out my post about leaked photos. It kind of looks legit. What do you think?

LEAKED PHOTOS of the 2018 Gold Wing

A friend shared this with me, and it 'appears' to be legit. Check it out for yourself: http://www.visordown.com/motorcycle-news-new-bikes/new-goldwing-pictures-leak From the view of the dash, I see the word 'tour' suggesting there may be different ride modes. Sorry for the generic topic title below....

Re: bike storage (mice)

Those are meaningful suggestions. You might also stuff some steel wool in the intake snorkle.

Re: What's this, short aerial ?

The Information doesn't show on my Samsung Android phone. However, I tried tapping on Redhot and your profile came up, thus showing your location and bike model.

Welcome to the forum, though.

Do you still have the Wing? What windshield does it have? Oh, and did it survive Irma? ☺

And can you show some pix? Thx.

Re: Bike dies

When it quits, does it die quickly, like you hit the kill switch or does it die slowly like it ran out of gas? When restarting, does it start right up or do you have to crank it for a few seconds before it fires?

Try running a healthy dose of Seafoam in the gas for a few tanks. They may help the hesitation.

Re: New member in Yuma AZ

Welcome to the forum from the East Valley of Phoenix. It sounds like possibly the battery was on it's last legs and the PO was nursing it along. A new battery will give you one less unknown with your new ride. And there is lots of help here with your turn signal issue.

Re: Gold Wing single carb solution

Very interesting! How long did it take to install it? Was the carb fairly well adjusted initially, or did you have to do a fair amount of tweaking? Lastly, :lol: Is there still room for the tool tray?

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Stripping Clear Coat Off Engine Parts/Covers

Once pieces are free of coating, you can buff the aluminum with 0000 steel wool, then use various grades of polishing compounds. There are as many opinions about those as there are about oil. :mrgreen: But the steel wool works.

Re: Cigarette Lighter Question

I've been told that the newer, accessory sockets are "deeper" than true lighter sockets. Also that the lockin action is a function of the lighter itself. Which could explain why a a ie charger would work in a lighter socket because it can reach the center terminal, but not the reverse. Sorry if I'm ...

Secret to success: Remember to use COUNTER STEERING. Practice it. If you're not familiar with it, study up on it. You'll be glad you did.

Re: GL1000 - Identify model for parts

I agree that it certainly appears to be a 1000, either a '78 or '79 model. From looking at the frame tag, that also looks like GL2-411... might be a VIN but maybe not called that in Europe. ? Also, maybe someone from "over there" could explain what P V A means. Maybe an earlier Euro version/format f...

Re: Trip dilemma

Definitely a lot to think about. You know your bikes better than anybody else. As far as reliability on the road, I really wouldn't worry that much about the Wing. I have ridden my '76 from Arizona to Michigan and back with no problems. When I bought it about 10 years ago it had 18,000 miles on it, ...

Re: Apache Trail

We have ridden up the Beeline (87) to 188 then down past Roosevelt to Globe and back. And also ran that loop the other way. Apache Trail pavement is rough, but the dirt section is no place for a Wing, in my book. I don't have a problem with 'normal' gravel roads, but the beautiful dirt ride needs a ...

Re: Shell Rotella T6

Just like with the Rotella, I use whatever full synthetic is on sale at the moment. Synthetic is safe in our engines as long as it doesn't have friction reducing modifiers. Just be sure that the oil you are considering does not have the "energy star" logo on the front, down near the bottom. The best...

Re: Shell Rotella T6

It appears the old rule of thumb that the "high temp" weight of 40 or higher not containing modifiers still holds true. I use the regular car flavor of Mobile 1. Change it every 10,000 miles. Easy to remember . :lol: 181,000 miles and counting, original clutch, and still humming happily along. My $....
