Re: GWRRA Closing / Last WingDing

A couple more details - membership has dropped from a high of 82,000 members to only 10,000, which is why the organization is no longer sustainable. Next month will be the last time Wing World is published, and the shut down will occur at the end of this year. Insurance services will continue until ...

It's been almost three weeks since I did this, and my sprained ankle is still not fully healed. I suppose a six hour ride home after I did it was not exactly recommended therapy.

Re: 1983 GL1100 Aspencade front brake pads

The front master is a 16mm from a VFR750. All the lines are new braided, so no bulging.. When I pull the front with moderate force, I have a firm lever +- 1" from the bar. If I do a full on hard pull, I can almost get the lever to about +- 1/2" from the bar. This all stems from a incident...

Re: 1983 GL1100 Aspencade brake rotors

What material are the brake rotors made out of? I'm trying to decide on if I want to go full sintered or semi-sintered pads. I currently have organic pads on there and they just don't have enough grab (bite), even with a nice firm lever and pedal. But understanding that the Aspencade's front rotors...

I have to say, I'm not entirely surprised by this. With the poor quality of management that took over a few years back, it was only a matter of time.

Re: synchronizing carbs

When the bike's fan comes on, it adds electrical load, which will slow down the engine, which will affect the vacuum readings that you're trying to match. So you use an external fan to blow through the radiator to keep the bike cool, and prevent it from turning on its own fan.

Re: Revival of a '96 Wing that has been sitting for 7 years.

Thanks guys. Realistically, I've never used it much so I wasn't aware of the smoke issue. Got the timing belts done but had a time of it. The pulse generators were glued to the block due to over use of thread sealer at the factory. I followed wingadmins article. It was a very good tutorial. Thanks!...

Re: Improper Oil for 1989 1500

Nothing improper about the oil you picked. A 15w-40 oil is readily pumpable well below freezing temps, so for the majority of riders it will work for most all riding seasons. Rotella T4 15w-40 is used by many as motorcycle oil with no issues. Diesel oils in general work well in shared sump motorcyc...

So doesn't sound like ALL the Goldwings...just some. I suspect this might mean the non-DCT Wings will go away. Why would the DCT goldwings have lower emissions than those with manual transmissions? One of the ways manufacturers are modifying vehicles to get around the Euro 5 standard is by increasi...

Re: Locked up brakes, crane strap location?

Take the seat off and the inner steering covers. Strap on both sides of the frame, right behind the crosspiece in front of the trunk, as well as around the steering head. You can safely lift the bike that way.

The fuel system currently has about 2 gals of gas with an entire bottle of Sea Foam added. am also getting what smells to be oil smoke out of both exhausts.

Re: 86 aspy SEi engine replacement.

Aw that's terrible news Stuart! Here's hope you heal back to normal soon. I will advise you: once the cast comes off, do the PT!!! It's hard, it hurts, you won't want to, but from personal experience, it is better than having the long term pain and dysfunction if you don't do it.
