Re: Fourth Annual GoldwingDocs Gathering - Aug 19-23 2020

Does anyone have an approximate number of miles that we traveled from Wednesday afternoon until our last ride Saturday? Doing the math, (which I basely suck at) I only get 389 miles. Does that sound close to right? I came up with 914 miles in our " ventures ". Jeff, does that include traveling from...

Re: Missing and almost died

Heck, my memory is getting bad! Looking at my Cyclemax orders it looks like I bought one in May of 2017 and I am pretty sure I replaced it. I'll do a vacuum test on the installed one for a double-check.

Re: Chatter at less than 2500 rpm

Finished 160-mile group ride and the chatter is still there :( Guess I'll order a petcock rebuild kit and either rebuild it now or take it along on the next long ride (about 2500 miles total) and do it when an issue occurs again.

Re: Chatter at less than 2500 rpm

I really haven't gone on a decent ride to see if tightening the muffler bolts did the trick, but am going on a ride today with my GWRRA chapter today to see how it goes.

TRY THIS - Corky !! - Hope it helps too !! -
I did the WD40 and compresser blow-out stuff on the gas cap yesterday. Going on a group ride today. If the old girl gives me any trouble I'll be going after the petcock rebuild.

Thanks again guys :!:

Thanks! I did soak the cap in SeaFoam overnight, but I will take it off and make sure it’s clear. Might even try to find one for a spare.

Missing and almost died

200 miles from home on a 2100 mile ride, my old girl started to miss, and even though I increased throttle I kept losing speed (on the interstate). Luckily, there was an exit within about a half-mile, so I turned on my flasher and she chug chugged almost all the way to the stop sign at the exit, the...

Re: Chatter at less than 2500 rpm

Well, not 100% certain until I take it on a highway speed ride, but what I found and corrected a loose muffler bolt on the right side. :oops: Rode it around town up to 45 mph and could not hear the rattle! Thanks for the suggestions.

Re: Chatter at less than 2500 rpm

Just when under a load maybe? Not coasting too? Mountains and hills, even gentle hills, will let you know fast when you are lugging, where as flatlands might not. I’m very aware of what lugging sounds like (just like when I forget to down shift when starting out from a traffic light) and this is en...

Chatter at less than 2500 rpm

After just completing a 2100 mile trip with friends, including hundreds of miles in the twisties of southern Ohio and West Virginia, I was finally able to narrow down the rattle or chatter that my old girl has always had for me. In any gear or speed, at less than 2500 rpm it makes a noise that I am ...

Hi all, I've attended all of the Goldwing Doc rides and have really enjoyed both the rides and time with friends but, unfortunately, due to Covid 19 I won't be able to make it this year. Border is still closed and with the situation in the US I am not even sure we will be able to spend the winter i...

Feniex T3 flasher

I was on a ride a couple of weeks ago, and 2 of the 11 riders had this flasher installed (one was red and one was yellow). Because of the surrounding LED lights that the bike with the red one on had, it didn't stand out like all that much but the yellow one really POPPED(even in direct sunlight)! Go...
