Re: Rear brake issue 1990 GL1500

I have rebuilt both front and the rear calipers as well as the front and rear master cylinders. I have followed the procedures for bleeding based on what is in the Clymers manual I have as well as the posts I have seen. The front right system bled fine but I am having trouble with the front left an...

Re: Pearl Glacier White paint type?

I guess thats whats confusing me. When I look at the parts list these "type" numbers look like they represent the same part only different color.

Pearl Glacier White paint type?

I'm trying to check on some parts but the microfishe are a little criptic. Pearl Glacier White code looks to be NH326P but the parts list also seems like its calling paint colors by type..... like Type 7 or Type 17, etc... Would anybody happen to know what type Pearl Glacier White is?

Re: recommendations for replacement windshield

Replaced my slipstreamer with an F4 standard with vent. Excellent clarity, scratch resistant and has held up very well over 5yrs now. They cost more but for me was worth the money.

Re: Want To Buy A 91 Interstate And Need Advice/ Thanks

Think that was a good decision. Don't like seeing heel toe shifters on any goldwing. I looked at a 97 today that had one. It was a cool bike "in its day" I'm sure but seeing that shifter made my mind up. 1500's can be worth the effort to fix up but would be more worthwhile if it has been an SE imho....

Working on my bikes gives me a closer connection to them. I've never worked on them as extensively as I have on my goldwing. Theres a certain satisfaction to it. :D

Re: Blackwing Fork brace Installtion

Installed mine same time I got new tires so got rid of a wobble problem so I was very happy with the ride. If you noticed that your forks were mushy and now they are like a sport bike then my guess would be the forks are binding.

Re: THINGS TO LOOK FOR WHEN BUYING A USED 1800

Some 07s also had transmission issues with the ghost shifting issue. If you can get a test ride get the bike out and just see what its like shifting from 4th to 5th and see what its like when you open it up in 5th. This issue didnt affect a lot of the bikes but you dont want to get stuck with an ex...

Re: Best LED Headlight Retrofit

Will do. Last time I rode into work early in the morning my HIDs must have been weak because they didn't seem very bright. Hoping to see a difference in the dark. Thunderstorms moving in so will have to wait for that ride. You were right the LED temp matches the foglights/position lights real good. :D

I take it that no one has experience with the quad load balancer.
Is that an upgrade from the Flux Capacitor in the Delorean?

I was looking for a coolant leak. All hoses looked like they were replaced, they were in great shape. I had a leak from the thermostat gasket. Replaced it. Replaced the cross tube. It was hard and brittle. I recommend replacing the cross tube clamps with a screw clamps. Had some leaks from loose ho...

Re: Re-installing cooling fans on 92 wing se

Aside from removing the radiators is there anything else that needs to be removed or disconnected for this job? I'm assuming you replaced the radiator hoses or maybe had a coolant leak you were trying to fix?

I've got everything but new hose clamps and that crossover hose for the top of the rads.

Re: New to this Forum

Would agree with everybody. But I think that most parts are still available for 1500's. There are very few pieces that I went to buy that were obsoleted. I just ordered both radiator hoses and any related oem rubber bits that hold the rads in place. Boy oem parts are expensive from Honda. :D Althoug...
