Re: Both Turn signal dash lights an beep

We could use more information on this Goldwing. Do the turn signals work properly? Do the hazard lights work properly? Where does it sound like the beep is coming from? Have you added any other new gadgets lately? If there are different models of GL1500 that year, (IDK), which model is it? Interstat...

Re: Need advice on repairing a torn slide diaphragm

My thought would be to replace all four of them as all the rubber is as old as what was torn and will likely tear again. It would be best to replace them all instead of taking a chance on an unknown repair process. So, it costs a little more to replace them but on a nice looking bike like that for o...

Exhaust cover question

Partzilla numbers for the 92 Interstate are; (L) 18425-MW5-000ZD and (R) 18325-MW5-000ZD. The 199...

Try tapping on the relays with a screwdriver handle or something similar to maybe get it to work if it is stuck. This might work but, only temporarily.

Re: can you use dry graphite on the speedometer to lube it

I've never had one apart myself but, if it is in fact the speedometer that is noisy I might try a drop or two of light machine oil in the spot where the head turns.

When you have a bad ground you will have numerous electrical problems because the ground will feed back through other accessories which will make them all operate when one has been turned on.

Re: over heatting

Don't put more than 15 PSI as the system (hose clamps, water pump seals, etc.) are not designed to hold more pressure than that. Excess pressure could ruin a radiator or blow out a hose or seal.
