Re: Hauling an 1800 across country

In one of the above responses was the admonition to not use the side stand while trailering.

Has anyone had a misadventure doing that?

Re: The Last Answer Wins.

Camsell recognized no one, yet it clearly was wrong. The sky colour was tinged orange and the ground was dusty and hard to remove from your skin. It felt sharp, not like sand, sharp like pepper.

Re: 2018 GOLDWING SPECIFICATIONS

Concur. The functional upgrade is expected to be the suspension. If it is not, they will be in the used market in two years. My colleagues still swear by their GL1500 and did not move up to the previous generation 1800. Lets see if they now move up and pay for the ride. Some will be forced to upgrad...

Viscosity equivalent chart

Re: milky colored oil

Maybe you are right.

With the spark plugs out (no compression resistance) does it catch and spin normally, at least occasionally? Then it's the sprague clutch.

Re: milky colored oil

Sounds like the sprague clutch has corroded.

The R&R for this is $2,000. There are some short cuts others have posted. You might want to try this.

Re: Need a part for a 1971 Honda CL450

Is the part unique to the cl450? The reason I ask is I have several dead cb350f.

Part number may also be helpful.

Re: milky colored oil

that is, as other stated, water/coolant in oil. stop what your doing and find the leak.

my money is on a head gasket. pull the plugs. which one is cleaner than the others? take the head off. if you are lucky a new gasket is a quick fix.

I am out of my model posting in this thread. Please excuse my contribution if inappropriate. I bought a new cb500x and that filter is the same as the gl1800. In the cb500x it sits out in the open up front and I thought, "gee, wouldn't a bigger filter sitting there also be an oil cooler?" The other s...

Re: Ride Lake Superior

The prevailing wind is from the northwest. This means you ride with the rain if you go clockwise. Not an issue on a sunny day or if you have no choice in direction.
