2005 Goldwing my starter hung up today

While riding today I heard a funny noise after stopping when I tried to shut the bike off it kept turning over even with the key off. Reverse still works (battery has plenty of juice) but when I hit the starter switch nothing happens. After I finally got the bike to shut down I had to push start it ...

Re: cobra mufflers

Cobra was very helpful when I bought the bike it already had the mufflers on it. Make certain you keep your purchasing reciept for the mufflers and they will stand behind it. The good news is it is only the bafflers I will need to replace the pipes are in great shape, I should receive the baffles th...

cobra mufflers

I started noticing a slighly differnt sound coming from my exhaust recently, upon inspection I notice the inside pipe on my colbra mufflers has a wear hole in them. I seem to recall that Colbra offers a lifetime warranty on their muffers, it that true?

Re: LED lights

yes I would like the bike to be more visable at night so I am looking at putting the LEDs on a keyed switch (so they cannot be accidentally left on.)

Also plan on putting a flip switch on so they are not on in the day time, any ideas.

thank you, Fred

Re: LED lights

I was looking in a bike magazine I have J & P cycles and they have a power distribution module that looks like it might do the trick.
My question is which line should I tap into, I want to run a switch so that it will only come on when I want it and only when the bike is running.

the vent above the headlights

I just had a 24000 mile tune up done on my 05 wing and the mechanic lost the black cover that goes inside the vent above the headlights. How important is this to replace?

24,000 mile tune up

How important is it to bring the bike in for the 24,000 mile tune up, they charge a pretty penny to do the job?
My O5 is running great what are your thoughts.

Re: installing a volt meeter

Thanks guys, Fly Boy were you able to access the harness under the panel on the right side.
The type you have in the photo is the one I was looking at, hoping my 05 will be able to plug right in without the adapter.

Re: Best sound through speakers

I used a standard MP3 player on my wing and it sounds great.
I store it in the glove box, they do sell one that installs in the trunk for about 100 +
