Need help GL1500 1992

Post by Jeepster73 » Sun Mar 14, 2010 10:21 am

Hi guys, i'm new to this place and would like to tell you this place R-O-C-K-S...!!! :)

Ok, so here is my friends father had a little accident with his GL1500 1992, nothing to terrible but still we need to replace few parts on his bike and i wonder how to get throught the dissasembly process as i never worked on any Goldwing before, but i'm pretty good at mechanic.

Here's the deal...i need to remove these parts and wonder how and where to start with the dissambly process:

1-Front fender+front chromed brake disk cover
2-Complete front fairing needs to be changed (and it seems a lot of work since it contains a lot of stuff)
...more specifically the damage was done on the part that goes from one side to the other just below the headlight.
3-The complete rear plastics including both of the side trunks lockers

Briefly....i need to basically almost teardown all the esthetic on the bike, so that damaged panels be replaced et repaintes to match.

So if you can help me out on where to start with, i would greatly appreciate your help.
P.S: I am NOT doing this repair for money....rather to help my friends as a service, so i am not asking info to make money on that.

Thanks a lot guys...!
Best Regards.

One of the best suggestions I can make, particularly if you're doing this for the first time, is to bring a digital camera, and take lots of pictures as you disassemble the bike. That way, you can refer to your pictures when reassembling. Also, don't rely on your memory to remember where each nut and bolt goes. If I'm doing a lot of disassembly, after I remove each part, I will take the nuts and bolts I removed, and loosely replace them in the places they just came from, so I remember what goes where. If I can't do that, I'll take a piece of paper, put them on the paper, and write on the paper next to them what they are for.
