Re: GoldwingDocs is 10

Congratulations.

I didn't realize that I was #4 on posts. I don't post much on any of the other sites anymore. Used to frequent Saunders much more often than I do now. Some of the guys from Saunders are contributing here more often also. Home is where the heart is I guess.

What tires are you running? What's your tire pressure. I have had tires that did not handle well at all at speed those speeds.

Re: Worst Place to Break Down

I have only one experience with a breakdown. Not quite sure of the date but somewhere around 1982. Riding my 1981 CB750K just north of Arches Natl. Park, Utah at around 4 am in the morning. Dark couldn't describe it. No moon just lots of stars. Rock formations on both sides. All of the sudden the bi...

Re: A learning experience from the GoldwingDocs Gathering

I have watched this many times trying to figure out what went wrong. One thing I noticed is the brake lights are on until the beginning of the 21 sec. mark and remain off the rest of the way. His foot touches the ground at the 24 sec. mark. That's 3 seconds that the bike is coasting to a stop and to...

Re: Kick-starter for 1979?

Well it seems to be a lot of work for the outcome. You will have to pull the engine. Hardly anyone has ever used the kick starter anyway.

Re: Kick-starter for 1979?

All 75/77 have the kick starter. I haven't seen this done but others say you can install the kicker mechanism along with the rear cover from a 75/77 on the 78/79.

Re: Transmission problem 1500 SE

Sounds like you may have a worn shift fork. Common problem with 1500s. However engine replacement might be a better route. Check here.

Re: vinegar or carb cleaner ?

I know you are in Canada so this may not be available. One carb will fit in the can. Follow directions. Best tool you have for carb cleaning is your air compressor.

Install foot pegs and sell the boards. I don't think there is a cure for big foot syndrome.

Re: 1979 gl1000 engine tick?

I wouldn't be concerned until I rode a while and changed the oil. After around 300 miles change the oil and fill to proper level. Then check for ticking.

Re: so American politics

I think I would be in favor of term limits for the house and senate just like the president. I haven't been in favor of term limits in the past but the way things are going now I believe it's time to get rid of a lot of these lifers. Perhaps a maximum age limit. Maybe they should have to pass an IQ ...

The last third party candidate to win more than 5.0% of the vote was Ross Perot, who ran as an independent of the Reform Party in 1992 and 1996, respectively; the closest since was Gary Johnson in 2016, who gained 3.3% of the vote running as the Libertarian nominee. The most recent third party candi...

Re: Does anyone really use their CB radios any more?

I use mine on group rides and when traveling if I encounter a long traffic jam I turn it on to find out what is happening up ahead. There are some truckers that still use theirs. I don't leave it on because of the constant foul language. This includes the "lady" drivers.

And then there are the staunch republicans like Jeff Flake who are really trust worthy. He needs to be tarred, feathered and run out of town on a rail.
