GL 1800 valves

Hello,
Can somebody tell me whether or not the valves on my 2007 GL 1800 need to be adjusted once in a while. My friend told me they were Self adjusting. Is that true?

If that's the case, what is involved in a tune up?

Thanks in advance,

John

How to replace the air filter

Hey All,

I'm handy but I'm not a mechanic. How easy is it to get to and replace the air filter. If you know of a good video or step by step explanation, could you send me the link?

Thanks, in advance,

What type of fork oil do I use?

Hey all,

A big thank you to all those that replied to my question about fork springs under pressure. Now I have a new question:

Are fork springs under pressure?

I'm going to change my fork oil and I wanted to know if the springs are under pressure. When I open things up do I need some extra caution?

Thanks,

The same thing happened to me. Just by dumb luck, I tried turning up the CB squelch and everything audio worked!

Re: Built in GPS- 2007 GL 1800

Thanks Viking,
It's still a little cold here in BC so I haven't got my wing on the road just yet- I'm just getting everything ready and in place for the 20th when I get the insurance and get out riding. I will put the battery back in and give your suggestion a try asap.

Thank you,

Re: Arai helmet question

Hey thanks so much for the information about your Uclear system. I am considering that one as well as the Sena 20 (series). Do you have a rider hooked up with your system? I wondered how the intercom part of the Uclear was- especially without a mic.

Thanks for input. I bought the helmet- now I'll be on the lookout for a Blue tooth intercom system. Sena looks good.

Arai helmet question

I tried on and liked the fit of an Arai Signet Q helmet. I also want to get a blue tooth intercom/ headset a little later on.
Has anyone heard if there is a problem fitting the Arai helmets with a headset?
They are expensive and I want to get it right.

Thanks everybody,

John

New to Goldwing-Need advice

Hi All, I just bought a new to me 2007 Goldwing 1800. I'm finding I get a lot of heat from the side. Has anyone had good results from using lower wind deflectors to keep heated air away from the rider- it's hot enough where I live with out adding to it.

Thanks in advance, John

Hello, Just bought a new to me 07 Goldwing. I've ordered the ergo 2 highway pegs and also want to use lower wind deflectors to redirect heat from the side grills (side fairings).
