Re: Stator bolt

My stator bolt on my 82 Gl1100 won't stay tight, any suggestions? I've torqued it to the 58 ft lbs like the manual says to. But after 300 miles it backs out and makes a horrible racket. I know it's a design flaw, and I really don't want to have to pull the motor to get at it. Thanks for the help in...

Re: Brand new starter...only works intermittently

I checked the ground wire to frame connection. It was clean. I thought about the solenoid but haven’t tried that yet. I will check that next. But I don’t know about the dogbone fuse you mentioned. Can you tell me where that is? Have a look here: http://goldwingdocs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=28...

Does it matter what kind of shoes you're wearing to put a bike up on the centerstand? Believe it or not, but I have YET to put the bike up on the center-stand by myself.

Re: Changing Brake and Clutch Fluid

The bleeder bolt was sucking air by the threads so I decided to take the saddle bag off to put thread tape on it and check the pads while in there. I was able to get it open through the hole, but the hose kept coming off also. Where did you get the stainless lines? I feel I’ll need to replace the f...

Re: Brand new starter...only works intermittently

Let's make sure...you have checked the dogbone fuse, right?

Let's remove the solenoid from the equation. When it is not starting, short across the solenoid terminals with an old screwdriver (there will be sparks) and see if that makes the engine crank (make sure it's in neutral first!).

Re: O/D light,Switch Location

Warning! Dumb question ahead. If you're in 5th gear, not on the new ones with 6 gears,of course, aren't you always in OD? Or are some folks using that OD light as a way to know they're in 5th gear already? 5th gear is OD. OD just refers to the gear ratio, and the 5th gear happens to be an overdrive...

I have a Koolatron cooler, works on the same exact principal, but it's big - like ice chest big. I have to watch it, because left running for a couple days, it will freeze things left inside it, and the condensation inside turns to ice.

I have found that some of the cheaper brands of brake cleaner contain acetone. Found out the hard way. I only use CRC brand. Just saying.
This is the same NAPA brake cleaner that I have been using for years, never had it do anything like this before to ABS!
