Re: Cleaning vented windshield?

Sounds like the best way. Not gonna be real clean I guess but I'm gonna like the vent on the hot days. :)

Cleaning vented windshield?

I changed to a vented windshield and noticed something. How am I going to clean between the dash and the vent? Not enough room for my hand to get in there..... Anybody?

Now it does work! Thanks Mag! "Nope did not work. What I did to get mine to work was pull the pic in to "Paint" program (Windows accessories) and then shrink it down, then save it as a jpeg file. After that, I could drag the new pic to the conversation block that we type in on GWD and TADA! It worke...

Re: 1989 GL1500 won't start

All lights are normal. When I pushed the button nothing at all happened. It's gotta be a dirty switch. Like I said, a few days later I tried it again and it fired right up. Gotta be the switch I think.

Re: 1989 GL1500 won't start

That's what I thought too. My '83 did that I think. I'll check that tonight. May just need cleaned up. Well, I walked by my bike in the garage again and decided to try starting it. Hit the button and it started right up. I think the button must be really dirty. I'm gonna go over all the buttons and...

Re: 1989 GL1500 won't start

Only thing I didn't check is reverse handle. Don't know how that could be the problem because I have started it since it's been parked and didn't use reverse but I will check that tonight. All lights are normal.

1989 GL1500 won't start

OK...today it was 60 degrees for the first time in quite a while. When I got home from work I decided to start up the old girl. It's been on a battery tender since the weather turned to cold. Maybe 3 months. I have started it once since then with no problems. Today I disconnected the charger, which ...

Re: Please tell who or what made you buy a Goldwing

Back in the mid 80's my older cousin bought a 1985 Interstate. I was riding a small 250 Yamaha street bike. He took me for a ride and that was it. I just had to get a Goldwing. In 1992 I found a 1983 Aspencade at a garage sale that only had 17000 miles on it. It now has 110000 miles. Fast forward to...

Low RPM sputter

My 1989 has a low rpm miss. Above 2000 rpm it runs fine. I've tried Marvel Mystery oil and premium gas and Seafoam. Not much luck with any. Maybe new plugs? Sometimes it doesn't miss at all for a while. I'm stumped. Any ideas?

Re: Highway pegs

That's exactly what happened to me. A guy backed into my bike and knocked it off the center stand. The highway board got pushed into the cover which cracked and leaked oil. Luckily I was able to drive it home but I had to replace the cover and it wasn't easy finding one as clean as my now broken one...

Re: How to rebuild your rear brake caliper

Well, all I can say is thanks! I used you posting to rebuild my '83 Aspencade rear caliper and it was very easy. I was a little worried about doing it myself since I had never tried to before. It was pretty dirty in the slots where the seals mount and the pistons were pretty rough. After the fix the...

Re: Center stand has broken!!

Last year my '83 Aspencade was pushed backwards by an idiot that "didn't see it" when he was backing from a parking spot. The center stand was broken and the bike was leaning badly to one side. I called a bike repair shop and he said he could weld it for me. Indeed he did and he said it would be goo...

Re: 82 GL1100I What Type And Brand Oil Do You Use?

Just like Johnyy I have been using the Valvoline bike oil and am happy with it. I change my oil every 3000 miles or so with no problems. '83 Aspencade with 98000 miles and counting.
