2000 Goldwing SE Anniversary Edition

Postby madmonkey » Sun Jun 15, 2014 4:37 pm



Hi All,

Currently looking at a 2000 SE with 29K on it. It looks really nice and sounds great. The people want $7000.00 for it. Is this year fuel injected or did the injection come out with the 1800's?

Opinions on this machine?

Thank you!

Only the 1800 is fuel injected. I have a 2000 and love it. Sounds like a great deal for the price and mileage depending on condition. If it's a faster red one you got a bonus.

Pretty good price for that year and mileage, as long as it's in good condition.

Thanks for the input guys, it is in really good shape. It's missing the front left brake disk/caliper cover and the brightwork looks a little splotchy but overall very nice. And the reverse gear works!

Any other issues with the year? I guess it only has two carbs; one for each bank. Are they a reliable setup or prone to glitches? Also, what is the recommended interval for timing belt change? She only has 29K on the clock.

Thanks

I would change the belts just based on the 14 year age.

Sounds like a good deal. How are the tires? Still good tread and not old? That was one of the first things I had to buy for my bike last fall when I got it. That and a new wind shield. Then all the maintenance things like belts, filters, etc... The costs started to add up quick. My bikes a little older than yours though.

The tires are almost new; the people who I'm buying from are the second owners and only put 900 miles on it since they purchased it in 2011. It was a trade in for a new goldwing before that as they purchased from a dealer. I'm going to change the oil/filter, plugs and air filter. I guess i'll check the shaft drive for proper fluid level, but that seems about all it needs for now. Any other suggestions?

Hey Happytrails, sorry for the threadjack, but where did you get your windshield? I'm about due for one on my '96 1500SE.

Madmonkey, I first looked at a 2000 wing and it was beautiful, but the owner was in Canada and the red tape to import it was way more than I wanted to deal with. They were asking for the same price so I think they are in the ball park.

I bought an F4 windshield. Just a standard height one with a vent. It sits at just about the right height for me. I can see over it but I don't have to tuck my head much to be looking thru the wind shield. It was expensive but the quality of it is nice. Its got good clarity. I think I bought it thru Cyclemax but I think you can purchase it from F4 if you want to. My bike came with a slipstream windshield that looked a bit higher than stock but I think they cleaned it with windex or something. It wasn't in too good a shape.

Sounds like a well cared for bike and makes that deal sweeter. You could lube the drive shaft splines if you want. There is a guide for it and its not too hard to do. And consider changing the brake/clutch fluid. That wasn't done regularly enough on my bike and I spent a long time rebuilding/replacing it all. They say to change brake fluid every 2 yrs and clutch every year but having gone thru all that I'll probably do both every spring. It was an expensive fix. Had to replace the clutch slave and the rear brake master cylinder. Also might be a good idea to run some seafoam thru it the first few tanks of gas. It helps get rid of any moisture caused by ethanol in todays pump gas and will also help keep your carbs clean.

Nice Bike! And, the fastest color too. I paid 7K for my 1998 w/28k miles on it 2 season's ago. It has been a great bike. One thing you might want to do this winter is change the timing belts, they are probably 14 years old and due for a change.

Thats a good deal too. I love the bike so far, very smooth and torquey! It runs much better after I fixed a battery charging issue. I guess I will have to do the belts this winter; is the water pump under there as well? Is it driven by the timing belt?

No the water pump is not driven by the timing belts. It is right next to the oil filter just below the timing belts cover.
You can read about the timing belt change out picture tutorial here: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=9774
It is a very well written D.I.Y. article and alot of us have used this to change out our belts without issue.
There are numerous D.I.Y. GL1500 articles on this site under this link here: viewforum.php?f=14
