Goldwing Model History

This was a page originally written by Steve Saunders, but has been deleted on what used to be his old site. It's got valuable information in it, so I had a copy saved locally, and I'm posting it here now for others who may be searching for this information in future. Goldwing History By Steve Saunde...

Re: Extra Fuel Tank

First off: the GL1500 fuel pump does not have an issue losing prime. You can drain the tank dry, run the bike until it quits and there is zero fuel left in it, then fill the tank again, and the pump will operate, fill the carbs and the bike will start. Disclaimer: don't do this. It's not good to run...

Wow, what a mess. They obviously did that bodge job repair because you DO have to split the case in order to replace that shift shaft. It's part #16 below: H99GL1500A19.gif If it were me, not wanting to split the engine case, I'd probably just live with it as is. Without seeing a picture, I can't sa...

How often do you change your Mobil 1? Before storage, X miles or Date?

Daniel
I will usually change it every 3,000 - 4,000 miles, and always change it immediately before I put it away for the winter.

Re: 1983 Aspencade help - VIN vs year

If it is an Aspencade, and it has round gauges, then it is an 82, not an 83. 82 Aspencades had Comstar wheels and round, analog gauges. No linked brakes. Air suspension controls were on the false tank. 83 Aspencades had eleven-spoke aluminum wheels and digital gauges. It had linked brakes, and air s...

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

Gas in oil is generally stuck floats. Sometimes a dose of Seafoam (one can in one tank of gas, run it for 15 minutes, let it sit overnight, then run through the entire tank) is enough to fix the problem. Otherwise you're looking at a little more in-depth carb work.

Re: Corbin seat for sale ... GL1500 (and others?)

What a steal! I have the exact same seat on my bike, and it is the most comfortable seat I've ever ridden on - I've done 20+ hours straight on it before. They start at $1000 new and go up from there depending on options. Someone should grab this!

Re: Starter Woes

The battery cable that "leaked" solder has likely failed. When it starts to corrode internally, it creates a bit of resistance. Draw a large current (i.e. starter motor) through a resistor, it heats up. The more it heats up, the more resistance it offers. It can easily heat up to the point where it ...

I eventually decided this was a terrible place for those tabs (and the horns, so I bent them right off and painted over where they were. I re-mounted the horns inside the fairing lowers.

But Honda o rings are mentioned in the parts book as 46x2 46 id or 46 od? A simple question that nobody has answered though you may have found that a 46x2 Honda o ring, according to JIS specs you provided, is 46 id x 2 cs. That means that it is 46 mm id, 50 mm od and a 2 cs. I guess I am going to h...

Re: reinstalling heads on a 83 Aspencade

The tensioner spring sets the tension. Do Not push the tensioner tighter than the spring pressure or you'll get squeaky belts from too tight belts and possibly burn up the tensioner bearing. That might have been true 35 years ago when the bike was new, but those springs no longer have anywhere near...
