Re: Gl1000 oil, why does it take forever to drain?

Back to the 'speed' of draining... did you remember to remove the filler cap first?

Re: May I ask a quick favor...

Well, I tried, but not sure if I was successful. I tapped on the phone screen where it said Click to Subscribe. Not sure if it 'took'. I may have got bit by my primitive browser on my phone.

Re: rebuilt at what point ??

It's rare to see or hear of a Gold Wing motor being rebuilt. As stated above, with your maintenance regime, you should expect 250-300k without major trouble. My '94A with 193,000+ miles purrs like a kitten. Original clutch and all. Normal maint only.

Re: What would you do with this opportunity?

I believe that the location of the pulse generators on an '84 are in the rear of the engine whereas they were 'moved' to the front starting in '85. This may or may not be a problem for what you're doing. Others will no doubt chime in here. Good luck.

Re: Another Headlight Question

Sorry if this might be considered a hijack, but I have been under the impression (rumor?) that the 1500 was designed for 55/60 bulbs, and were equipped with them on European models, but that US units were for some reason delivered with 45/45s. Is this not true? I have used 55/60s in my 94A (bought n...

Icons in the left column

I'm posting this here in case anyone else has been wondering about this and would like to see WingAdmin's response..

For Sale: Gl1000 Auxiliary Fuel Tanks

These puppies are in excellent condition and are painted and pinstriped to closely match my 1976 Honda Gl1000 LTD. The gray compound on the sides is silicone glue, which is how the previous owner mounted the side badges. All hardware and plumbing is included. The plastic hoses should probably be rep...

Re: Krauser Panniers

Nice outcome. They definitely fit tight to the bike. I am in the process of mounting a set of the newer style bags on my 1976. It will be a bit of a challenge because they were removed from a Suzuki GS1100 (thank you, Ebay, though). 😎 Nice touch with the tank badges. 🤠👍 Congrats, and thanks for shar...

Re: First time posters, say hello!

Welcome, bkv. Did you check for loose or split fuel lines? Also, you may have a sticking carb float. If you can identify the one that's leaking, try tapping on the float bowl with a small hammer on a wooden dowel.

Good luck.

Best Tires For Longevity

My baby needs new shoes, and I would appreciate the membership's thoughts on which tires get the best mileage. I remember back in the day that at least on my BMW airheads I only got 6 or 7,000 miles on a set. My 76 LTD is so smooth and comfortable that I'm hoping to put some decent miles on it, but ...
