Re: Looking at a 2000 GL1500 SE-white

The only things to look out for are the alternators, from about 1996 they are made in China and not as reliable as the earlier ones. Engine guards rust quicker. A good read on what to look out for is here: http://www.goldwingfacts.com/used1500.htm

Re: c.b noise

There was a known problem with CB noise on the 06 that Honda issued a service bulletin on. I'm not sure if it also covers the 05.

Re: Honda Extended Warranty?

That's one thing I wish they offered here in the UK. All we get is a basic 2 year warranty, with no option for an extended one.

Re: 86 GL1200 Clutch

The clutch is a real pig to bleed on the GL1200. You just have to keep at it,maybe crack the banjo bolt at the MC end to get air out of that.
