I don't know what they are like for your model of goldwing, but I like bikebandit as they have all the microfiches on line so you can find the exact part you need.

http://www.bikebandit.com/

Just click on OEM, select road bike and Honda and then your year and model, quick shipping, prices are not cheap but not unreasonable for OEM stuff.

I've been buying all my parts at cyclemax.com for some time now, and they are usually equal to or better priced than most others.

Question: I've normally run 10/30 oil in my 83 wing. But I just flushed the radiator and changed the oil. I used Valvoline 4 stroke 10/40. Seemed fine, got on the bike later that night after work (11:30 pm) and all I heard when starting was spinning if the chain & starter. Did I put the heavier oil in too soon? This is a newer starter (1.5 yrs old).

It is not your starter, its the one way clutch between the crank and the starter that is slipping!! A lot of people find that adding seafoam to the engine oil will clean the starter clutch and get normal service resumed, I doubt it's due to the different viscosity of your oil, but just due to the oil being new and better (More slippery)!!

Gary, you are saying that people add seafoam into the engine case then they run it for a while and it cleans out all the gunk when you flush it right...It doesn't hurt the rubber seals at all right? So for a typical engine how much is used? Run for about 50 miles or so correct...?

That is exactly what I am saying.. I don't have a tin of sea foam with me at the office, but how much to add to the oil is marked on the tin. Add it now run the bike for 3000 miles until your next oil change and that will give the sea foam plenty of time to clean the gunk out and loosen up any other residue, be sure to change the oil filter and the oil as the filter will get quite filthy as the sea foam starts to loosen the gunk inside your engine cases and starter clutch!!

Thank you, Gary...Bigray are you going to try that, for about $8 a can it may be worth it...? I might try it now that I have all my oil leaks repaired,,,I never wanted to do it before because I had a bad shifter seal and a bad o'ring at the starter so I put it off.. Is there anything else Bigray can use other than seafoam? Like ATF or something different?

I've used Seafoam in my engine oil for years (usually once a year), including in my 1100, with no leaks or any other problems ever.
