1994 Goldwing 1500 Replacing front fairing

Postby wilsonw » Sat Dec 27, 2014 12:58 am



I have a 1994 Goldwing with front damage to the fairing and I am looking for advice to make the change to a new fairing and possibly suggestions on getting the new one painted the correct color. I live in the Rochester New York area.

If you were to buy new, from, say RonAyers.com, it will come painted in the original factory color you select. No painting etc. required. I've looked at body parts there for my 'Wing, and they show all the available colors (by paint code) on the 'fiche.

Plus they show the better price of those listed on this post. Not really hard to do, just lots of stuff to take off to do it.

By following the DIY articals for Headlight, windshield, dash lights,Cruise and sub air filters, and cornering lights, and using parts of each as applicable, you will find yourself very close to the fairing itself. When you have both pockets out, take a picture of the wiring in each so you know where they go when going back together. A pair of needle nose pliers will work well for releasing the wiring connection support at the rear of the pocket holes,making it easier to disconnect the connectors. On the right side, disconnect the vacuum hose that blocks removal of that duct. There is a bolt next to that connector, and a screwinside next to the fork tube that needs to be removed to pull that duct. Left side is similar with the (I think ) cruise linksge that needs to be loosened from the frame. Loosen, not remove! Wiring the same as right side. Bolt is behind it. Duct removal same way. After all wiring is disconnected, there are 6 more bolts that hold the fairing on. One each side up in by the small vent in the fairing, takes 2 wrenches to get to as bolt is in that duct. 2 allen head under front. and 2 bolts behind where headlight was. Pull out slightly at back of fairing to clear the studs on each side, then wiggle straight forward. Pull the wiring out of old and put in new fairing. Don't forget all the clips that have to go to the new fairing. I used zip lock sandwich bags and marker to make all the bolts, nuts, and screws so I knew where they all went for reassembly. Get all 8 bolts and nuts started before tightening any of them. Take your time and make sure all wiring and lights work before "burying" them with the next step. :roll: Ask me why. :oops: Not really hard to do :) Have a problem, PM me. Just did this on my 2000 SE. My only problem was the crutches I was on at the time. :) You know the drill on reassembly.
