Yep..known fault in earlier 1500's 4th gear goes out and you have to skip using it or replace it..in 96/97 they changed the tranny gears to Valkyrie set up and it fix the issue.

I assume yours is dieing
HAD LOTS OF GOLDWING 75-83
NOW INTO 1500'S..RIDING A 1998 SE

FAIR WINDS,

thanks for the reply I found the clutch Handel bushing to be completely worn out so I am replacing it and am going to bleed the clutch the bike only has 42 k on it so I am hoping it is not the shift fork.
