Hey guys, I'm new...

Postby Ivan250 » Fri Jul 15, 2016 9:33 am



I just bought a 1985 Goldwing LTD and I am looking for a factory service manual. I can't seem to find one that includes the LTD, only finding ones that cover Standard, Aspencade, and Interstate. Is there anything on the cover (because that is all the internet pictures have mostly) that distinguishes the LTD manual?

The bike only has 20k miles but I didn't get any service records so I want to go over it and do everything as if nothing had ever been done...even though it seemed to be well taken care of. I am the third owner and the second owner only rode it 600 miles in two years and had not done any service.

Awesome, I had been there but missed the service manual supplement.

Just to confirm, I need the service manual that covers Standard, Interstate, Aspencade, and the supplement will add to that to give me everything that's different on the LTD?

It seems like I can just download the manual but need to buy the supplement...although, I like paper reference manuals in the garage so I typically buy them anyhow...
