thinking about switching to a wing

Postby harleyguy907 » Fri Jul 17, 2015 11:51 am



As you can tell by my name I have been a Harley rider for a very long time.
I am thinking of buying a Goldwing , but have many questions.....
with the ultra classic I do the recommended service every 5000 miles at a cost of about $350.00 to $400.00
Front tire every 10,000 miles @ $350.00
Front Brakes Every 10,000 miles @ $300.00
Rear Brakes and tire every 20,000 miles About the same price as front
Battery every 2 years @ $175.00 :shock:
Quart of oil $13.00
Cool Harley Davidson tattoo ......priceless lol (just to put a little humor in there) :lol:
So any Goldwing guys want to tell me what s in store for me should I make the switch?

Have you had a chance to ride an 1800 yet? Costs aside they are very different machines. Even if the intervals between servicing the bike were longer (which they probably would be) its not going to matter if you trade your Ultra Classic in on a Goldwing 1800 lvl 4 and find out that you just dont care for the wing and miss owning a harley. Personally I haven't had a chance to ride on an 1800 either. According to Honda there are places you can set up a demo ride. Maybe you can rent one for a day (not a bad idea). The rentals aren't cheap but it would be worth it in the long run.

Good after noon Happytrails, I knew he dealers take their customers to the cleaners, but yours is on the high end, I have a 1999 1500 SE. All the bells and whistles, at least at that time. I do most of my own service. 5 wits full Mobil 1 synthetic oil. $25.00. Oil filter $7.00. Takes 20 minutes. Normally change 3 times a year. My dealer cost to do this service would be $85.00. Every fall before putting away for winter nap, change oil, oil filter, plugs at $3.50 each, check all fluids, maybe total of two hours ( need an occasional brew to warm up the bones).
Front and rear tire I get 20,000 to 25,000 out of them. Change every two years in spring ( to get this years tire not last years tire), while tires off change brake pads and check to see if any pad is wearing differant from the others. Front tire is $165.00 rear tire is 185.00, gave dealer dismount and mount new tire, $42.00 each. OEM pads (3 sets) $75.00. Every 4 years do same thing in spring but rebuild all brake calipers and flush both front and rear brake fluids when changing out the tires.
I did forget to "welcome you to the world of goldwings and the best forum you will find anywhere " :D :D :D

Never had a Harley (can't afford one) but with a Wing...LOTSA fun...and less expensive to work on.

Hi Harleyguy... I rode bone shakers for 47 years, and when my spinal tendonitis began turning my arms off from the shaking, I broke down and bought a Goldwing GL1800. It was a bit of a learning curve re-educating myself on riding a bike that was so top heavy compared to a Harley, but well worth it. Once a person is used to a Goldwing, the maneuverability (for the GL1800) is phenomenal. It handles like a sport bike but bigger. Lots bigger.

Maintenance costs are almost eliminated compared to what you describe for your Harley. As stated above, 4 quarts of oil and a filter, even the most expensive synthetics, about $60. Tires are gonna run the same price if you get them from the same place, but there are cheaper places to get them. Set of two Dunlop D250s cost me about $340. My Goldwing is a 2009, and I have not done any brake pad replacements yet, nor have I changed the air filter, although Honda says I should have long ago. I have not added in any labor costs, as I change my own oil and other fluids. Having two tires mounted costs about $80 to $100, depending on where I go. The most expensive item I have to pay for is gasoline, of which I use quite a lot. The smiles I make when I ride without health problems are priceless.

I still love Harleys, the look, the sound, the riding position and styling, but I do not miss the pain of my arms coming back to life, nor do I miss the riding time I missed because of it. Being older now I am happier to just be riding, rather than living a lifestyle.

As far as the "recommended service" at any dealership, I do not care who, including Harley, Honda, Ford, GM, Toyota - rip off. They charge for it, but rarely does it really get done.

SO IF you do become a Wing-Man, WELCOME!
You're gonna LOVE the LOW maintenance and smooOOOOooth ride.


I have the 1991 interstate model. Bought it used at 51K in 2007 from a 2nd owner and now have 177K.
I can't vouch for the 1800, never rode one and highly not likely to own one. I'm not a fan of frames breaking, you'll read below why.
.
As for my ride, beyond the normal tires, brake pads, fuel & air filters etc., etc., . . .
Engine wise:
I did change the timing belts at 121K. The OEM belts were still good, soft, not dry literally no wear or stretch, I still have'm.
Chassis wise:
Steering bearings, rear wheel bearings, alternator rear bearing with brushes and the vacuum petcock which I rebuild for $0.005 every other year.

Even with this high mileage I haul a large heavy trailer and it net weighs in around 275 LBs. (add to the following weights)...
Short distant loads usually around 300-450# depending on the job. On long trips the loads around 600#, mostly her stuff. FEW-times the extreme loads were, sold and delivered my '83 GoldWing down state (275 miles). TWO loads of 14 bags of concrete (1175# x 2). Two 1/2 ton loads of rocks (1200# + 800#). Twice 2/5 ton of sod, 800# and about the same weight for a load of dirt.
ALL THIS and my Wing is still on the OEM clutch. JUST in case I have a spare used one at the ready.

Around 134K I changed the spark plugs and they lasted maybe 12K. OHM tested the old ones and were still in spec. Cleaned, regapped and reinstalled, mileage on them, about 130K and still in use (Platinum plugs).
I've gone DarkSide and INSTITUTELY LOVE the high mileage. Front Battlax. changed at 35K. The rear is the Austone, will need changing around 80K.

I have owned and ridden a GL1800 since 2002. I have ridden several demo rides on Harley Ultras but not the new Rushmore units. The bikes and rides are very different and I really like the above suggestion that you need to get a GL1800 for at least a day of riding to see how you fit it and how it fits you. Obvious differences will be the Wing is a lot quieter and smoother with more power and the braking is superior. In fact be careful with braking as an easy pull on the brake handle will stop the Wing. The system is linked for better braking and as is true with the Harley you can get ABS. When buying this is an option you should consider.

Changing an air filter on the GL1800 is a major event until you have done it several times and have a good system. But it is way to difficult! One huge maintenance advantage for the Wing is removal of the rear wheel. Five lug nuts like on a car and the wheel comes loose. And many say the easiest way is to lay the bike on its right side and then the tire/wheel is easy to remove.

The Wing has a lot less performance items available either from Honda or the aftermarket than the Harley but then it comes with more than adequate power for most owners. Now there are tons of other stuff available to improve comfort, suspension, and add stuff.

I honestly can's say which is best but I have over 120,000 miles on mine and it still rides like it did when brand new.

Not sure about an 1800. A 1500 you change the timing belts every 100,000 miles or 10yrs (its no uncommon to see wings with 200,000+ miles or much more with regular maintenance). I imagine the 1800 would be at least that much? Its not apples to apples comparison though. A Goldwing is liquid cooled and an Ultra Limited is air cooled. Well the new rushmores have liquid cooled heads but thats it. EPA mandate. Somebody with an 1800 will probably chime in with better info.

You could check out 1800riders.com and see what they say. Its a pretty common question. People are interested in switching and have questions. Good luck trying to make a decision.

Try this. Where you are, look for local wings that are for sale from the local paper, online ads, etc. Then take em for a test ride. Sellers usually allow you to test drive, especially when the see pull up on a Harley cuz they know you can handle a bike that size. Best way I know to get a feel for them. Look and ride different models, from a 1200 to 1800, they will all be different. Don't worry about mileage-a wing gets broken in around 50k, and ask about service upkeep when you find 'the one'. Maybe not all will be kept up properly but most will because wingers usually care about their ride. :D (notice how quiet they are)

I can't add much because I ride a great 1980 gl 1100 that I patched up....if you read around you'll find no other bike can rack up miles like a GW. This is going to sound crazy, but there is a 1500 out there with over 400,000 miles on it, and another 1500 with over 800,000 miles on It-these are documented and supposedly verifiable.
The 1800 is said to have more problems than all wings put together. Some guys out there buy new 1800s, then opt to sell and go back to a used 1500.
The 1800 is also known for a small cockpit if you are over 6 feet tall.
On a funnier note-as far as maintenance, it didn't look like they done hardly any to the old girl I bought, and it had lasted 152,000 miles. It needed everything, but plenty parts available on ebay...but, how are you going to get that Harley tattoo covered with all that shaking going on?...!

Harleyguy.. I usually tease the HDguys by asking what they do for their HD's at 40k miles.."top end overhaul, tires- maybe some trans work".. GW owners do an oil change. :D
Mr. Honda makes ENGINES- he makes cars and motorcycles to put them in. There aren't many engines that are better- well, I can't think of one- The timing belts and tensioners are about the biggest maint item, and they go for 100k/10 years. Oh, and you can change the exhaust to be loud if you want.... :twisted:

I would defiantly rent one as a lot of members have already posted. A Goldwing is a different experience and defiantly a different machine. Rent one for a few days when you have the time to ride it and make sure it is what you want. Taking it for a test drive in my opinion is not enough time to know if it is the bike for you. Renting is expensive but worth it to make sure it is something your going to like.

__ Rear tire, $22.50 (Per 10K) and (you know) FREE maintenance. (My CT lasts 80,000 miles)
__ ALSO, rear brakes 3 to 4 times in that 80K. Cost is in previous $30.00, 3 brake pad set on sale.


Battery every 2 years @ $175.00 :shock:
__ YA SHOCK! I buy a spare, keep it dry until needed. When on sale it's $50.00

Quart of oil $13.00
__ I'm sure you could find more expensive oil without the HD logo. :twisted:
__ $ 3.50 Quart, ($13.95 gallon. At 10,000 miles add a filter, $4.00 - $6.50

__ You will find PEACE... on so many levels. That's GOLDEN (said Blago)

Your HD quick rundown on cost, as posted here, about $1400.00.
My GoldWing, just under $200.00 . . . slight difference.
Is there a price difference of frowns and smiles or is that unmeasurable? ;)

Either way, enjoy your ride... IF you can... WHEN you have your bike, not the mechanic.

HarleyGuy97,,, all that you spend to keep your BEAUTIFUL HD running, you can spend on a better seat for your GW, lighting kits,better stereo and speakers- yeah, you can HEAR a radio/CDplayer/Ipod while riding a GW :P - heated seats, Bluetooth for comm with rider- and you get to scare the dickens out of the HD riders when you pass them and they don't hear you coming.
Oh, you can get a GoldWing tat if you want!! Kinda resembles the death head of the H-A (8 1) folks...

I have both an '08 GL1800 and '85 GL1200 LTD. They are different riding bikes, but since I did the suspension on the '85 it's a close second. Had the suspension on the 1800 upgraded to the Traxion "Full Monty" and it makes a significant difference. The suspension does become soft on the 1800 after some 30K to 40K. It takes approximately 3 to 4 hours to change the $25.00 air filter on the 1800. Other than that, oil, gas and some regular maintenance and you go riding. Put over 30,000 Kms on the 1800 last year without anything extra. 1800s do like to go through tires so I put a CT on the back. After a few miles, never knew it was there. My riding friends are on Harleys and they have yet to find something to say about the CT, considering I'm the lead when we travel and they get to see the tire. I'm certain that as the years go by, the 1800s will need to be maintained on a more frequent basis, but the costs are negligible compared to a Harley. If you are a big lad, I'm 6'2" and 195 Lbs, you may want to have the seat adjusted for you. I had mine raised 2" and moved back 2" and it made the ride that much more enjoyable.

If the sound is an issue, and you want a more throaty sound, check out Torq Master Pipes at http://www.torqmasterpipes.com/. You can get a custom looking set of pipes for the 1800. Jimmy, the owner, states that you can have the sound of a GW or a Harley, or anything in between, your choice. These pipes are reported to improve performance and give better fuel economy.

Cheers

Ya-Kno... (as far as we know)..
He's not a Wing'r yet but we treat him like one of us.


"OIL CHANGE?" _FM 07-2009
Know its new taste and be loyal, you'll know when to change that oil.
Taste testing as the miles flow, souring as that acid grows.
And don't flirt with dirt or darkened oil, all the faster your engine will spoil.
