84 goldwing interstate front fork stud bolt size

Postby krauel5808 » Tue Jul 08, 2014 7:21 am



I recently snapped one of the stud bolts that hold the front tire on the bike. It required a 14mm socket to remove the nut. Yet I have looked up the diagrams and all say it should be a stud bolt 8 x 50. Really confused. It is the oem fork. Help I really want to get my bike rolling again. I plan on replacing all the studs with new ones.

8x50 means the threaded portion is 8mm, and it is 50mm long. It has nothing to do with the size of the nut.

The stud will need to be removed from the fork and replaced with a new one. How far down did it snap off? Do you have anything left to grip?

Yes I have plenty sticking out to grab onto. In ref to the size I understand the 8 indicates the mm size of the bolt. So it's possible to have 14mm nuts on 8mm bolts. Even the replacement nuts call for 8mm nuts. Maybe I'm just over thinking this to much.

I would strongly advise you to get,and use, a manual,for your bike.
8mm,is the diameter of the studs,and 50mm is the length. 14mm is the size of the wrench that fits the nut,and the nut has an 8mminside thread.
They are part# 92900-08028-3B,from Honda,and they cost $1.11 ea,and you should replace all 4,to be safe.
When you install the caps,make sure the arrows on the side of them, face forward.and when you tighten them, tighten the front nuts first,to 18ft lbs,then the rear ones to18 ftlbs.There will be a small gap at the rear stud,but none at the front. This is normal.
I'm busier than a one-legged cat,in a sandbox !
I can't fix it,if it ain't broke...you want me to break it,first ???

Give me a Goldwing,...or give me Viagra,cuz either way, I'm gonna ride !
