Re: Sold my goldwing...and a starter question

Looks like a rebuild on your starter maybe at a local starter shop, or parts from Honda can be had. Now CMS has a new starter if you want to go that route. They seem kinda rare for some reason. orginal part no 31209425018, changed to 31200426018....now 650 is 31200426405 so as Dave0430 says looks li...

Re: Stuck brush in the starter again.Idea needed

I would go rice in the bowl only. Cover it up, wait a day ,maybe fresh rice it again. Now this is the consensus of the real cooks in the kitchen. I am concerned about the heat and warping of the plate my self.

Re: To gps or not

Just having the "lane assist" on the GPS is worth the money if you find yourself on a freeway in a strange city. If your destination is keyed in and the device is updated properly, it will tell you which lane you need to get into BEFORE you have to make a snap decision. The only caveat to that scen...

One more thought. every thing every one has said is right on the money but...would be a good time to practice the remove the carburetors from the left side, in case for some unknown reason they have to come off later.

To get the superstition correct, the bell must be given to you and it has to be a Frisco bell as told to me. Besides that you are riding the wrong brand.

Thanks for the response! I was about 90% sure which way to go, but I was just trying to nail it down. Short version is that I got a set of 3 ohm Dyna coils and they worked great.
