Re: last road trip of the season

Outstanding. That should give you a range of over 400 miles. It would sure come in handy if you do much riding at night out here in the Southwest. ;)

Re: last road trip of the season

Thanks for sharing. Your report and pix bring back fond memories of the many rides I took in those places before moving to Arizona 4 years ago. I sure miss it, and get back there every summer. I have my '76 Wing stashed at my brother's house in Onondaga. One of the additional laws about fishing for ...

Re: Ethanol! Yes or No?

Sorry if this is a repeat, but remember... the reason ethanol is cheaper is because it is Government Subsidized. So every time someone tops off with E-anything, that is money out of YOUR (and my) pocket. I cringe when I see someone grab the yellow E85 pump nozzle.

Re: New 2018 Goldwing Survey

I forgot to mention my concern with final gear ratio. With a clean sheet the choices were many. That motor no doubt has tons of torque. It seems their focus on performance is shining through. Gotta be able to whack the throttle and jump forward without wiggling the toe. But even sportier riders don'...

Re: New 2018 Goldwing Survey

I knew Honda had to do SOMETHING. And I applaud them for the amount of engineering they put into the new models. I also understand that a revision of this magnitude involves compromises. However, some of their 'logic' escapes me. As an example, with all the features, bells and whistles involved, sig...

Re: Engine oil

To the OP: My unofficial reply is that most any oil that follows the viscosity recommendations in your Owners Manual is safe. The weight recommendations by default will steer you away from oil that may harm your clutch, eg. no friction modifiers, etc. FWIW, I have been using Mobile 1 or Rotella T in...

Re: What exactly is a dual-clutch transmission, and how does it work?

Thanks a lot for this. I never understood the Dual Clutch concept. ie it told me Two Clutches, but why, how, and for what purpose. Also, I honestly had a misconception about "automatics" on a motorcycle. My experience tells or told me that they were 'lazy' and inefficient, like the old(?) centrifica...

Upon re-reading the OP, I have to agree about the 2000 alternators. I also was/am not familiar with the LActrical unit. Sounds interesting.

Re: for sale

You might try taking your paperwork to your DMV. They could at least confirm that it isn't stolen. And if their records show that it is still titled in his/her name but you have a signed bill of sale from him/her, they should issue you a new title in your name, thus making it easier to sell.

Re: Wanted, used 6 point trailer hitch

Rayvn: I have a hitch that looks identical to the bonanza unit you referenced except that the two little black vertical tabs on mine are parallel to the back of the bike rather than at an angle in your picture. BTW it fits my 94A just fine. If you are interested, just PM me.

Re: Bike keeps stalling

If the problem ultimately ends up being the alternator, don't 'change it' like you suggested. Just have the brushes replaced. This is a common maintenance issue with the 1500s.
