New member saying hello

Postby vernon07 » Fri Aug 20, 2010 5:28 am



Thought that I should be polite and say hello to everyone.

I bought my first ever Goldwing about a month ago because it was about the only bike that my wife would consider being a passenger on. now I wish I had done it years ago.

It's an 84 and has a few things that need doing but they don't stop me riding it and will probably wait until the winter when I will lock myself away in the shed for a couple of months.

Off to try and find some information on how to set the air suspension now as it says nothing about it in the manual that I have.

hello vernon and welcome to the forum. if your wing is an aspencade the switches for the compressor are on the right side of the fairing and if it is an interstate there ia an air valve under the right side cover near the rear brake resevour, if i remember right 52 lbs is the max for the rear shocks

Thanks for the advice but my problem was that I didn't know what the little dashes on the instrument panel corresponded to. The settings that the previous owner told me to put it on just didn't seem right. I managed to download and read a copy of the owners manual and all seems OK now.

The only problem is that when I took the bike out to check out the suspension the wiring from the solenoid all burned out. The previous owner had put a piece of wire in the place of the main fuse which I don't think helped things.

I spent the rest of yesterday trying to sort that out but with a bit of luck it will be running again this morning. My only worry is why did the wiring burn out. Obviously the wiring went in stead of the fuse because the idiot had put a big piece of wire in the place of the fuse but what caused this to happen? I suppose I will find out when I put everything back together.
