Re: Replacing windshield

Thanx, everyone. What I did was I followed the advice of one of the first people to respond to my query: I bought the OEM service manual and got all of the info I'll ever need for working on my Wing, from the windshield all the way back to the license plate and everything in between. Hundreds of pag...

Re: Fuel Mileage poll

I get between 33 and 36 MPG riding 1-up, 32-33 MPG riding 2-up, and down to 30 when I'm pulling the fully-loaded Bushtec trailer. 37 is good.

free manuals

This website talks about free downloadable parts and service manuals, and I'm unable to find them on the site. I've clicked on manuals and followed the thread I think should lead me to the free manuals, but it just leads to where someone wants to sell me one. I don't mind buying something if I need ...

Replacing windshield

New (to me) Wing owner, moved, windshield broke in moving truck. Is there somewhere on this site where I can look at or download that portion of the service manual, or do I need to buy the $65 service & repair manual? thanks.
