Do you have the service manual for the bike?
Nope hoping to buy one soon. Can I buy the valve seals online somewhere? I’m sure I could probably find info somewhere online on how to change them.

Re: Rebuild engine or replace?

Well I'm just trying to piece together the history of your bike. You haven't given the full history of it's life in your posts. You say it "had almost 40,000 miles on it". Is that a mistype and should be 'has almost 40,000 miles on it'? If so, that is a very low mile 82 and the rings should be fine...

Re: Rebuild engine or replace?

Getting all the parts necessary to do a proper rebuild on these is going to be near impossible. Too many discontinued parts. The rings could be stuck if the bike sat a long time on the side stand and gas leaked into the cylinders gumming the rings or water in the cylinders(which would be rust and r...

Re: Rebuild engine or replace?

I would suggest that you make it a habit to always park the bike on the Center Stand for a few days or whatever. Then see IF it actually smokes from the left side. What you are describing is a common phenomena with our bikes, even my '94SE was the same way. leave it on the side stand overnight, and...

Rebuild engine or replace?

Hey all, My 82 gl1100 smokes terribly on startup out of the left exhaust pipe. (Kick stand side) and compared to the right pipe has very low exhaust pressure. I’m sure the piston rings are shot. I’ve read since you have to pull the engine and split the case to change the rings most people just buy a...

Re: Digital gauge for 82 Goldwing RPM cable problem

That’s a good idea I didn’t even think of that. I did the dodge neon coil conversion since I’m running a single carb. I’ll have to tinker with it I guess. Thanks for the help

Digital gauge for 82 Goldwing RPM cable problem

Hello all. So I bought a digital gauge off of eBay to replace my originals on my bike. I completely forgot to make sure it has a hookup on the back for the rpm cable. Sure enough when it arrived it does not have the input. Only wires. I remember someone saying 83 Aspencades came with a digital dash....

Is it possible my timing belt jumped a tooth?

Hello all, after my single carb conversion on my 82 Goldwing it’s running really well. Idles pretty good and will rev to the moon if you let it. My only problem is if you snap the throttle back really quick it backfires through the carb and dies. Fires right up afterwards. The bike has 37,000 miles ...

ISO 1982 Goldwing start/kill/throttle assembly

Im looking for the right switch assembly for an 82 Goldwing. Has Start/Kill/ and throttle cables connected to it. The threads are stripped on mine and I can’t connect my throttle cable. I found 1 on eBay but it looks to be in pretty rough shape. Figured I see if anyone on here has one or knows where...

Re: Best exhaust for 1100

If it’s a cruiser I understand. But no one wants a quiet cafe racer. I’ve seen a few on YouTube that sounded like a a corvette lol. They never say what pipes they used though. Today while wrapping the pipes in exhaust wrap (FYI make sure you wear rubber gloves while doing this. I completely forgot a...

Re: Best exhaust for 1100

The bike is naked. Has a us army paint job. It needs louder pipes. Loud bikes save lives. If I was keeping it a cruiser I might be content with the stock pipes but I can barely hear my own bike riding down the road.

Best exhaust for 1100

I’ve removed the baffles out of my stock exhaust but it’s just not loud enough. One guy I was talking to said he used Harley sportster mufflers and it sounded really good. Any suggestions?

Yes oem pumps are around but decently priced? Not really. They are around 90 bucks. An electric can be had for 30.

Fuel pump for single carb conversion?

Hello all, I recently converted my bike to a single carb. Do I still need a fuel pump? My mechanical one is not working and if I need one I’m going electric. I remember reading somewhere that you can get one that’s the right pressure at an auto parts store. It came off of something like a 1972 Buick...

What carbs will fit on my single carb manifold?

Hello everyone, I have decided to go with a single carb conversion after spending hundreds on getting the original carbs cleaned and not working. I got the manifold cheap from a guy on Craigslist ($100). I’ll attach a pic of it. He said a VW EMPI PICT-34 carb will fit it. They are pretty pricey on e...

Re: Carb rebuild problems

I replaced all the jets because I had new ones. I’ll have to tear the carbs back apart and take a look at them. I saved all my old stuff I’ll probably just re use them. What should I re use and what should I replace?
