Re: Idle Surge after warmup then dies.

I put it in the repair shop and they say the ECM was malfunctioning. BUT, I have not received it back so I have not confirmed that the ECM was actually the issue. Once I find out and confirm, I will post it. I will be concerned if they also call me and say the fuel pump is also bad. Then we have an...

I rec'd the enclosed link from a fellow GoldWing rider. If it is true it looks as though there maybe some great changes coming with the 2018 model. Time will tell.

Significent improvement in stability of the entire b...

Have to agree with you Mike that removing the shelter is extra work. The extra working space it provides somewhat ensures they are installed right and that th...

I resurrected this post as I'm really interested in replacing all of the OEM Bulbs on my 09 Wing with LED's.

this is not the light to monitor inflation.....it is the second light which monitors the system Take it to the dealer. When the TPMS light comes on and stays on it means there is a problem with the wheel sensor, it may need to be reset or it may need replacing. . I agree with the above if your ride...
