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...

Re: Float Bowl

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...

Re: Installing OEM Headlight

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...

Installing OEM Headlight

Ok Guys and Dolls. I'm posting this here because it could pertain to 1000s, 1100s and the 1200 Standard, along with many other Honda street bikes of the era. I am close to finishing my project 76 LTD, and I am fighting the classic battle of inserting the headlight back into the bucket. I have tried ...

Re: Correct instrument colours/faces

FWIW, Back to the original question regarding gage face colors, I am very fortunate to be the proud owner of 3 Gold Wings, 2 of which are 1976 GL1000s. As you can see from my avatar, my 'standard' Wing has green faces. However, my LTD has black faces (see attached). Not sure this is any help, but......

Re: kickstart and tank instruments

I'm guessing that the desire for the kickstarter is a matter of reassurance should the battery get weak. Got it. The guage issue could be addressed with an aftermarket replacement for the 3rd unit, because the early models have fuel and temp guages. As for the wheels, you could swap them, which woul...

Re: Sturgis

I would suggest a ride down to see the Crazyhorse Monument. It is awesome considering that it is being created with no government money, just donations. I was lucky to visit several years ago on a day that they did a Night Blast. Worth a side trip.
