Re: Dunlop Elite 4's

I put E4's on and have about 4000 miles on them, showing no wear on them at this point. My E3's that were on my 1800 when I got it were cupped bad and gave the wobble that everyone talks about. The new tires took care of the wobble and are feeling great. I put 2 oz of dyna beads in the front tire an...

Re: 1800 tires

I had E3's on my 2009 GL1800, they were cupped bad from the PO, I had wheel wobble between 35 and 40mph (only came when reducing speed) after putting on new E4's the wobble is completely gone. They ride excellent and no road noise. I have dyna beads in them also. 2 oz in the front tire and 3 oz in t...

Re: LED headlight bulbs

I changed out all of my tail lights, brake lights and turn signals to LED superbrights. The turn signal LED's I found with built in resistors and it stopped the hyper flash, didn't have to change my flasher to an LED flasher, I am very happy with the back of my wing. I have had many comments on how ...

Re: LED headlight bulbs

Just wondering what is the best LED out there now for our headlights. Over the last couple years the LED's have evolved some in their technology and I am hoping that many of wing riders out there have tried different ones and can pass their experience on to us so we can make good decisions on what t...

LED headlight bulbs

Hello everyone, I know this has been discussed in the past but I am going to bring it up again. Now that many of the Goldwing riders have switched to LED bulbs, what is the best out there and what has your experience been with riding at night with them, do you see just as far down the road or is it ...

Re: LED Lamps & Flasher for GL1800

The first LEDs I put in my rear turn signals went to hyper flash because of less electrical draw tells the Wing that there is a bulb burned out. I checked with our local dealership tech and he said the hyper flash will not harm the stock flasher but I decided I want it to flash a normal flash so I f...

Re: LED Lamps & Flasher for GL1800

Re: My first post (and its gotta be a problem question)

Thanks for the info AZgl1800, the CRC I have is not the same as you posted, I will be going to Home Depot to look for the CRC 2-26, if I they have it I will be using that for now on instead of the WD-40.

Keep on Winging

Re: My first post (and its gotta be a problem question)

My switch was sticking very badly so I decided to just leave it on and not mess with it. After seeing that light on, on my dash all the time I decided to tear into it and clean and lube it. I popped it apart leaving it still partially hooked up but open enough to spray some electrical cleaner in the...

Tried riding with just the new seat when I got it but I was to use to the air cushion and sheep skin. Rode about 50 miles and stopped and put them back on, won't ride without them. Love the...

Hello all, I have been told that my rear turn signal bulbs (stock factory bulbs) are hard to see, not very bright. My question out here is what has anyone else changed to and are there issues with changing to LED because of the required flash for a turn signal. What bulb number do I need to get for ...

Re: Tight Left or Right slow turn question!

For me I feel more comfortable making a U-Turn to the left because if I have to drop a foot for support, I can still keep my right foot on the rear brake to help control the wing. Using both front and rear brake during this is safer for me. I try not to use the front brake anymore then I have to whi...
