Re: Mystery Vent????

Use a flashlight and look into the vent whilst moving lever
Could be mis-assembled where lever isn't flipping the door
Or the seals on the door are just shot from age

Re: Engine swap

Not sure on manifolds but the 88/9 carbs were very lean with idle and off idle hesitation conditions

Re: Gen 1...??

At the risk of sounding foolish BUT in the use of online parts accessory sites
I would think it's Gen1 2001 to 2017 of the 1800
And Gen2 as the 2018 up 1800 on the New platform body style

Kinda like how THIS forum is laid out

Re: engine hydrolock

Luckily you never needed to Reverse either, or your buds helped there too. Wouldn't center standing allow better chance for both banks to have a cylinder lockup or is it still just the weakest float, needle and seat that chooses which side? isn't there a tiny vent in the cap that prevents excess pre...

Re: well, crud

If it's not cross thread or bottomed out then maybe a ice pick or sharp chisel can turn it.
If hole is threaded all the way thru bracket a small drill may bite enough to turn bolt out the back side.

Re: Body part fitment

Maybe others will have more experience but I seem to remember that the radio wiring has to lay exactly right or it doesn't fit

Mine had the chrome below windshield and worked fine
Maybe PO did something to prevent the sliding, have to get a peek to know.

Re: Adding a CD changer

the connector is under the seat and harness can go thru to under trunk floor storage pocket with the CB wiring (if equipped).
Mine is just setting on top of cb, I opted for a ipod style instead of usb, ipod clipped to side of trunk on divider.

Re: Goldwing Trunk Dividers

I will say the ones for 1500 trunk are much nicer than ones for 1800s.
I had both trunk and saddlebag ones on the 15 and liked them. the area on a 18 is not as well defined for use.
