Re: Bike Lift Advice in the UK please

What Scott said is what I actually have done. The formed pieces are shaped to clear the bottom of the engine, and allow the support to be on the frame.

Re: Bike Lift Advice in the UK please

The lifts I have, two of which are very similar to the one you have linked to, easily lift my 2009 GL1800. Because one of the support bars is under the engine, the bike is wobbly on the lift. I have made a form fitted modification for the arm that goes under the engine, so that it supports better, h...

Re: Bike Lift Advice in the UK please

I have three, slightly different from each other, but all quite like the one in your link. To raise up a Goldwing, with stability, on these type of jacks, it is really advisable to manufacture a sling sort of affair shaped like the underneath of the Goldwing and bolted to the flat bits of the lift. ...

Re: Looking for information on new boots

Well, I certainly do not ride year round, however, in the inclement months of early spring and late fall, I have a larger pair of boots in which I can wear Icelandic Wool socks. Boots have to be about two sizes larger than I would normally wear in order to get my feet in them with these socks on. I ...

That is really strange, DenverWinger. About half our snow has been from Colorado Lows. We did get a lot of our moisture from the hurricane season tho, so that may account for your drought. The Colorado Lows have been sucking the hurricanes up from the Gulf of Mexico, and we get the resulting rain/sn...

Welcome to the forum. Good to have another Canadian. Yeah, just be patient on your questions, as someone who knows what's what with your bike will show up in a while and help you with pretty much anything that can be asked. There is a LOT of knowledge amongst the members here.

Re: Change firmware 4.31US - 2.60 EU- Honda Goldwing 2006 HELP

I previously suggested you contact zalesjak, because he can supply you with the 2.60 EU firmware. Then after you get it, you can find the instructions to update it if it is being difficult here, where I posted them for zalesjak, for whom they worked apparently. https://goldwingdocs.com/forum/viewtop...

Re: Christmas Gift Motorcycle Washing Soap

I use Meguires carwash soap - probably almost the same thing as your Turtle Wax soap. I also use a wash mitt. If the bike is really buggy and dirty, then I use S100 cycle cleaner, spray on, give it a wipe and rinse off. Gotta rinse that one real well near anything that gets hot or you smell it for a...

Re: washer kits

My suggestion would be to make one. Order a six or 12 pack of each of everything needed and get a clear plastic slotted box to hold them all in different spots. They do it for cotter pins, and for O rings, so once you get one done, evaluate the cost and sell them online. Might make some bucks if the...

Some people think motorcycles are toys or hobbies. To me it is a way of life. As stated in the post above, some will understand and some won't. Nothing I say will alter that. I liked that narrative.

Re: '06 GL1800 power failure

What caught my eye in your description was "turned right and the electrics began to fail" - "turned left and they came back 100%". This to me would indicate some chaffing or separating plugs where the steering could pull at them, straining them when turning right and relieving the stress when turnin...

There are a couple of pinstripers in Guelph, Ontario, which is just a hop and a skip from Burlington. They are quick, good, and not overly expensive, so I expect that this was done by one of them.

You could just push a rag into the tailpipes for a temporary measure till the critters realize they cannot store their winter food there. Then develop a more permanent solution.
