Re: Do you have a vintage ride??

I agree. Outstanding. That has got to draw a crowd any- and everywhere. Is that a V-twin?

Re: First time posters, say hello!

Silvergoldwing: So sorry to hear of the tragedy all of you are suffering through. Congrats on your 'new' bike, and hopefully some knowledgeable people on here will jump in with help.

Re: Christmas purchases on Amazon

Sounds good! Question, though: Is there a way to bookmark this? Would I/we just click on it, let it take us to Amazon, then add that to bookmarks? Would that still provide the desired background credit?

Re: '76 GL1000, new to the forum, looking for a part source

For the front turn signals, I used handlebar mounted units from a Kawasaki KZ550. They are dual filament just like the stockers. But space might be a bit tight if you went with flatter bars...

GL10/11/1200 Water Pump Gasket Set

Hi, Gang. I am going to replace the water pump on my '76 LTD. When shopping online for a gasket set, there are several brands being offered. Which have y'all used and recommend, or which should I definitely stay way from? Thanks.

Congrats. Pretty bike. Search here and elsewhere online for information on adapting Harley Sportster mufflers. They can usually be found like new and cheap. They look and apparently sound good, and aren't difficult to mount. You just need to fabricate short adapter pipes between the header pipes and...

Re: Using 10w40 Mobil one fully synthetic motor oil

I've owned my 94A since new. At 10,000 miles I switched to Mobile 1 at the proper 'weight'. I've been using that or Shell Rotella, changing every 10,000 miles. It just turned 188,000 and still purrs like a kitten. Original clutch. Uses NO oil between changes.

Re: New 2018 Goldwing Survey

Congrats on the new bike. I will turn 72 on Christmas Day and have owned my '94 Wing since new and put 188,000 miles on it, but find myself enjoying my naked '76 Wings more and more lately.

As they say, "Ride on my friend". :)

Re: Who Never Wears A Helmet

Like others, I started riding in '63. I'm pretty sure my parents were adamant about me wearing a helmet, but I wore one because I considered it a status symbol. :lol: After one or two short, uneventful rides without one, it quickly became obvious to me that a helmet was drier, warmer and QUIETER tha...

Re: GL1000 weaving, wobbling, wallowing

I agree with others that you should double check the spokes. Also check the swing arm bushings, and the removeable frame section on the left side.

Good luck with your trouble shooting, and let us know what you find.

Re: New Member

Welcome from 'sunny' Arizona. I have '76 LTD and love the gold spokes and wheels. However, I also have a set of Lester wheels that I am considering installing so that I can use tubeless tires. How, might I ask, did you change the color of your wheels? Did you paint them? Powder coat? Other? They rea...

In a pinch, you could try filling the hole with JB Weld, letting it set up, then drilling and tapping with the stock size. I don't believe those screws are intended to be torqued tight enough to pull through. Others might know more about it and will chime in...

Thanks. All good advice. I finally succeeded in getting my headlight back together. Basically, I was trying to use an aftermarket 'ring/reflector/lense' assembly. After obtaining an OEM setup from Ebay it went together quickly. Boring details below. Bottom line: Along with your advice and proper har...
