How Not to Store a Goldwing

Postby MJSantos » Sat Jan 15, 2011 9:13 pm



When I picked this GL1100 up the PO had it stored in a shed where he had removed the false tank and had the plugs out. The roof collasped and he moved it under his patio. This is the result of being in the weather for a year. I also pour about a half gallon of water out of the crankcase before I got oil.

Thanks for the support. I'll get more pictures posted as I go along right now it's been nothing but cleaning and getting to the point where I can really start doing something. The dirt and corosion has been the big thing. Finally got the engine to turn over. Rain water in cyclinders can do a number. Here's some more shot of the engine. had to pull the heads and did the valves so it's ready for gaskets and to button it up.
