Couple of questions.

Postby RonG.Southall » Mon Oct 05, 2015 9:09 am



I just got this 1990 Honda Goldwing and want to know to engage reverse and how do I obtain an owners manual? I am a real novice and am 76 years old. I had and rode a Honda CX650 for several years, however this bike is soooo much larger and heavier. Lots to learn.
Thanks, Ron :D

Welcome Ron, There is a lever by your left foot peg, about 6 inches up. Make sure bike is idling and in neutral, then pull the lever out and up to engage the reverse gear. The starter is used to provide reverse so just press the starter button. When engaged, the indicator light on the left side of the dash will show an "R" in amber. When done, press the lever back down and make sure the "R" goes out. Good luck and happy motoring.

Oh yes, you can find the owners manual right on this site. I also found bikebandit.com to be a good source of OEM parts and supplies.

There are some "free" sources for owners and service manuals. However if you want the Honda manuals you can buy them from:
http://www.helminc.com

If they don't have it in stock they can still make you a reproduction copy.

You can also find an Owners manual and Service manual on eBay or Amazon.
