Re: 1991 GL1500a Trike Will not start

Still interested, did it fix the problem? Sure hope so, as that is a long time to wait for a fix.

Re: Darkside

Check the tire shops around your area. I'm sure you will find at least one that will mount one for you. Or you can do it yourself. It's really not that hard. Here we use a couple of old milk crates as a stand as the brake rotor fits right inside the crate. The hardest one I have done was a run flat ...

Bet the owner doesn't do many group rides. Covered all the chrome with a pumpkin paint job. Sure not the color scheme that I would have picked.

Re: GOLDWING GL1500 DEALER SERVICE

You talk about needing repair work done on your bike, but never mention what was needing repair. Bet some members here could have helped you out on how to do the repair if we only knew what was wrong. There are some really knowledgeable people on this site if you will let them help.

Re: Japanese Industrial Standard Screwdriver - How to make

Check out Home Depot and Lowes electrical departments. All the plugs are JIS, but they don.t have the screwdrivers. I asked them about JIS and they had no idea what I was talking about. Never be without at least one set.

Re: rider down

I had one of those boot things after my last accident. Couldn't stand it! Was easier to work on my bike using crutches than that thing. I rebuilt the whole front end plus fairing on those crutches, just got to want to. Hope you heal up fast so you can get back to the wing.

Re: What bridge did you cross yesterday?

All the bridges on the way from Jasper Texas and Dunnellon Florida. 190, I 10, I 12, Us 19. Great time at the ride and eat. Great group of 1800 riders. Though all were welcome. Got to ride my son's spare 1800 while my 1500 is laid up. Fun trip. Wild ride in the super downpour on the way there though.

Re: 1996 Goldwing Aspencade needs starter fixed

Does the starter motor turn when you try to start? If they mean starter internals, then that is a simple fix. If it is engine internals, that is another story. I had a problem with a starter several years ago, and took that starter to an automotive elect place and he got the parts for me to fix it. ...

Re: Oil change find

Can get ahold of it with Hemostats, but is too large to come out of the filler hole. Can't see how you could miss seeing this part of the gear if it had been replaced. Don't see any way to break it up to get it out short of removing the rear case cover. Looks like a simple replacement of the gear on...

Re: Oil change find

Like you, I wouldn't run it like that either. Fishing it out as described might be your best bet, failing that you'll need to split the case (if you worked on Lycomings you'll be familiar with that) - only you don't get to remove the jugs first, and there's a transmission in there, too. Fitting it ...

Re: Oil change find

Newday, I replaced the starter several years ago. It is not easy to reinstall. After several attempts, (by the book) it finally slipped right in. (The inside bolt is a PITA) Have used reverse several times since then. BTW, it never gets too cold here in Florida to not ride. Luckily, my son just boug...

Was changing the oil in my 2000 1500 SE and when my son placed the funnel in the filler hole, he heard a clink. We removed the funnel and found a 2 inch long piece of a gear just sitting on the bottom below the output shaft. It is too large to get out of the filler hole.Got to looking at the manual,...

Any one of the three Honda 750-4s that I had, and the 500-4 too. But I do still have my 550-4, and a VT 500C. Wish I had kept my 98 1500SE that was totaled.

John, Keep your eyes open for two 1800s riding 2 up both with Tailwind trailers. Looks like your following the same trail. My son and a friend from Texas headed for Dragons Tail. The Texas one also has Spot.

Upon further observance, what I found was a tire that didn't sit square on the rim. All this started after I was ru...

That filter housing looks very similar to anything Kuryakkan. I know that is not spelled correctly but you will know what I mean.
