Tragedy in New Hampshire.

For just this reason I have thought seriously about giving it up. Over the last 3 years I have had 4 near misses with vehicles crossing over into my lane. One actually forced us off onto the shoulder. Scary!

Re: 2nd gl1200 head gasket falure

After market head gaskets are prone to failure. They are still available from Honda. Here is a parts list from Western Honda. Good prices. (Compared to others) lol I always use Honda Bond as a sealer, very very thin coating, on head gaskets. Some say to install dry but the service manual says to use...

Re: Blown head gasket

I've used the same stuff, I ended up having to leave it on a lot longer than the instructions said in order for it to work properly. https://www.amazon.com/Permatex-Gasket-Remover-4-Oz/dp/B00FL423AU/ref=sr_1_4 Same here when removing actual gasket material but for just removing residue it dissolves...

Re: Blown head gasket

With only 100 miles on them they are still new. Absolutely no reason not to re-use them.

Re: 83 goldwing gl1100a aspencade

Go to this site and download the gl1100 1980/1983 repair manual. The only manual I've seen that includes the 1983 Aspy diagrams. The wire you are looking for is yellow/white from the sending unit.

Re: Title transfer. What would you do.

Funny thing is this bike is going to be picked up here and shipped to Poland. The guy that bought it is in Poland. This is my 2004 Rune. He has been a member on the Runeriders site for a long time. No scam it will be a cash sale. Already checked him out. Legitimate.

Title transfer. What would you do.

If you sold a bike and the purchaser wanted you to just sign the title and hand it over without a even a date. Would you do it? Would a signed bill of sale absolve any libality.

Re: Here we go again!! Something else as always!

Absolutely no need to remove the windings. Nothing in there. Caution, be very careful with the power in post. You can easily break the connection inside.

You seem to have a break in the ridge? rim? where the starter fits into the engine. See second pic.

Re: Oil Change.... All Oil Leaks Out

The spark plug wells are holding water. There is a drain hole at the bottom. Use a stiff wire to clean out.

Re: 82 gl1100i CARB SYNC

You probably need to do a static bench sync in order to get all 4 carb butterflies as close as possible before doing the sync with the gauge. I don't know if there is a how to here but there are vids on youtube.

Re: New 2018 Goldwing Survey

I don't have one nor will I purchase one due to age and price but I watched a comparison of the new Wing and the new BMW 1600 by two riders in, I think, Romania. The wing ultimately won but they both voiced this comparison. The BMW was so much more nimble in city riding. One even says he became dizz...

Re: tire question

Personally I would not take the chance either but if you do look into Ride-on tire balance and sealer. It also depends where the puncture is in the tire. Must be in or near the center of the tread. If you have balance beads don't use a sealant. Look at the videos here. https://www.jpcycles.com/produ...
