Re: What is your mileage on your goldwing?

Hard to believe, but have proof, 530,000. That's right. I just put in a different engine with 35,000, but the rest of the bike has the mileage on it.

96 Interstate conversion

I started this journey about 5 years ago. I bought my best friends bike that he was installing cruise control on. He never finished, and I did (along with the major help from the daughters boy friend). I have to let you know the bike had 530,000 miles on it. After fixing up that part of it I added a...

Re: putting on reverse

I finely have found what I need for the completion of my project. All I have to do now is weld on one small item and install. Then I will have the only Interstate with cruise and reverse.

Goldwing bag

I have this Goldwing bag that almost feels like a cooler. I have tried researching it on the internet, but can't find any information on it. Does anyone have an Idea about it. Such as how old it might be and the cost . Any info. would be great.

Re: putting on reverse

I have been all over looking for a Goldwing that I could get a picture of. I just need to know what it looks like and where it fits. I can fabricate one myself. If anyone has one that they have the left shelter off could you take a pic for me? Even the manuals don't show it. Thanks

putting on reverse

I got my lower mileage engine in with the reverse. Now I find out I need some kind of bracket that is welded to the frame,to bolt the reverse handle to. I have no idea where to get one or even find an old frame I could cut it off of. I could possibly make one, but don't have any idea what size, exac...

Re: Radiator hose

The hose I need is 95001-75008-60m. It is only about 4 inches long, and connects the two radiators together. It is about 3/8 of an inch in Dia.. The original one is very firm and you cannot bend or collapse it.

Radiator hose

I have a 1996 gl1500 Interstate. I am currently changing engines. The person helping me cut the hose between the radiators. To replace it it's $72. My question is would a regular heater hose work there, or do I have to get a special one for it.

Different Frame?

Does any body know if my 1996 Interstate frame is different than a Aspencades? I am swapping engines so I can use the reverse, would I have to do any modifications? Both engines are the same year.

swapping motors

Has anyone ever switched motors on a GL1500? I have recently purchased one with reverse to put on my 1996 Interstate, I have already had the wiring replaced and added cruise. Both engines are out of a 1996 bike. I was wondering if anyone has any tips for me. Then I have to figure out what to do with...

Re: What are you doing to prep your bike for 2016?

My goal is to put a different engine in my 1996 Iterstate. This one will have reverse on it and a whole lot less miles. Going from 530,000 to 33,000 miles.

Re: Do you wear your " Helmet "

I don't always wear a helmet. I have noticed more and more wearing theirs. I had mine on one day heading to work and a turkey flew up and hit me in the head at 60mph. Without the helmet I would have been seriously hurt or worse. Now I wear it almost all the time.

Re: "As God as my witness, I thought Turkeys could fly."

I can guarantee they can fly !!! This past summer I was on my bike heading to work. I was doing 60mph. All of a sudden one flew up right in front of me. I barely had time to duck my head forward when we met. Thank God I was wearing a helmet at the time. If I wasn't I'm sure I would have been injured...

Re: HID install problem

mike, on my bike only the low beams are HID. The high is still halogen. So when you start on high you only engage the HID when you turn on the low beam. With the low on start it turns on when you turn the key on and again after you crank the engine over and it starts.

Re: HID install problem

I just found out that I needed a little more charge in the battery.Also if you start the bike with high beams on it won't shorten the HID life, and it is easier to start,because the HID dosen't drain the power right away.

Re: how many miles?

I realize it is hard to believe, but I have the original speedo ( put a digital one on ) and it says 516,000. The original owner has been all over the continental U.S. with it. Including many trips to Alaska. He lives in Wisconsin.

Re: how many miles?

I am the third owner. The first put almost all the miles on it. Then my friend bought it and put on a few, then I bought it from him. I'll post a pic of it when I can.
