Coolent checking

Postby jturk1 » Fri May 24, 2013 6:36 pm



New owner of a 1989, 1500 Goldwing and smell antifreeze whenever it is running. Very little leakage underneath it. How do I check the antifreeze levels? I mean I know how to check them but how do I get to it to check it? I've taken off both sides, battery and other, but did not find the radiator cap. Is there a free place to download the manual or pictures to actually help figure this out? If so I would be very thankful.

The cap for checking the coolant level is under the left shelter cover next to the radio and ignition area of the bike. Look for the black plastic piece that is shaped like a try. If you turn the handlebars you should be able to see the cap. It has a dip stick attached to it. That is how you check level and also where you add fluid.

Do you have an owners manual? It should show it in there.


Also the How Too section here is better than any manual:

"It´s a friggen motorcycle, it´s not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The wind noise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you s**t your pants every now and then. "
