Re: Doug's Winter Maintenance Begins

I have an 18mm deep but it doesn't have the rubber stopper, maybe I can put some blue paper towels in to protect the end :?: I have a modulator on my Magna and love it, I really think it has stopped cars from turning across my path. I've got my wife talked into letting me change the headlight(s), c...

Re: Doug's Winter Maintenance Begins

...That is probably the one size I don't have. That always the way... b0236.gif Changed my plugs and pretty sure I used a regular deep well 18, nothing special. Changing the coolant isn't that bad of a job on a 1500 goldwing. One of my projects this winter is changing out the hoses. Its a pretty go...

Re: How Are These Held On the Screw Head

Like the gluedots suggestion. it hard to see clearly but I think that might be the correct screw in the photo but its just not clear enough. Caps are just friction fit and worry me about falling off. Considered silicon but those gluedots sound like better idea. Finding the right color for both sides...

Re: Death wobble almost killed me!

I've experienced a minor death wobble after just getting the bike.......it does get your attention. Just curious, does the after market front end brace(bracket) from Blackwing help to reduce this problem? Yep it could help reduce the problem. But its likely that there could be other issues that are...

Re: Cracked Panel

Re: Resurrecting Grandpa's Wing

My Granddad said when he put it on it was a bit of a learning curve. Ran a few parking lot sessions to get used to it. He added it when he got unsure of his knees riding two up.

I think I am going to put the sidecar back on in the spring.
Was surprised at how different riding a sidecar rig could be. Challenging to learn but a lot of fun. You'll probably enjoy it. It's a little tricky to switch back to a regular bike, at least for me it is.

Re: Resurrecting Grandpa's Wing

Grips were fallin off my bike when i bought it as well. I went with iso grips. They came with some kind of adhesive.

I'm wondering if your going to ride it with the sidecar. Only ask because I've been riding a sidecar rig the past couple months. :)

Pearl Glacier White paint type?

I'm trying to check on some parts but the microfishe are a little criptic. Pearl Glacier White code looks to be NH326P but the parts list also seems like its calling paint colors by type..... like Type 7 or Type 17, etc... Would anybody happen to know what type Pearl Glacier White is?

Re: Want To Buy A 91 Interstate And Need Advice/ Thanks

Think that was a good decision. Don't like seeing heel toe shifters on any goldwing. I looked at a 97 today that had one. It was a cool bike "in its day" I'm sure but seeing that shifter made my mind up. 1500's can be worth the effort to fix up but would be more worthwhile if it has been an SE imho....
