Re: How to Check your oil: You're doing it WRONG!

Great video - completely new to Goldwings so oil checks are a good place to start. For some reason I thought the swingarm/drive gear had it's own oil that needed to be changed separately? Anyway good to have that cleared up. :idea: The final drive does have its own oil, you can read about it here: ...

Re: Buying a 1993 GL1500

I just took it for a real test drive without my wife on back. Took it to 95mph and id went into a wobble, tried it 3 times, same thing. I guess the fork bearings are getting worn or loose. Does that sound about right? I think I'll opt out on the purchase. Bummer Bike with trailer for $3,500 Greg Th...

Re: Transmission stuck/not shifting down

I agree, it sounds like an electronic control failure. It's not uncommon for electronics to fail only when they exceed a certain temperature. The gobbledegook you're seeing on the screen also supports this.

Re: Trade floorboards for OEM pegs

just a question...what do you not like about the floorboards? The scrape when you lean in corners, but more importantly, they encourage the "stomping" of the shifter, which bends shift forks, and the "riding" of the shifter (resting your foot on it) which wears shift forks. Both...

Re: OEM Tool Tray

The tool tray may be ABS, but don't believe the body panels are. Drop some acetone or nail polish remover on the tool tray. If it softens, it's ABS. I've repaired cracks in ABS panels by drizzling acetone into the cracks and holding them together snugly. All the body panels on all Goldwings ever ma...

Re: Stabil seems to work then!

The main difference between red automotive Stabil and Marine Stabil is that the marine version off-gases from the surface of the gasoline, which coats the inside of the gas tank to prevent it from corroding.

Re: Just a color question

The wing in your photo is a 2000 just going by the gold anniversary crest on the chrome apron. (I had a green 2000SE). According to the paint color link, that makes it Pearl Glacier white, while the '90 has Pacific Pearl White nh251p which is the paint code under my gas cap door. The 89 Pacific coa...

Re: Replacement "Cross-Pipe"

The #1 way to know your crossover is leaking is the presence of coolant (or coolant stains) on the top of the engine.

I'll be getting some pacific pearl mixed to keep on hand. Guess I'll see about the accent colour for touch u...

Re: Replacement "Cross-Pipe"

Most likely he's talking about the coolant crossover pipe that delivers coolant to the heads. They have seals and the seals can begin to leak, causing coolant to drip onto the top of the engine.
