Re: Seat for taller rider

Wingsoft.com makes them for the 1800 but it looks like you have a 1500. Maybe you can have this done to your stock 1500 seat. But there are many after market seat manufacturers out there. If money is no object get a Russell Day Long,

Re: Remove CB hand controls but replace with what??

I have seen other posts where someone used those controls to control others things on the bike like after market lights ETC,. If you take the top 1/2 off you might be able to get a small plaque made with your name on it or a Gold Wing emblem,

wanted Open face headset or 8 pin cord

Well I'm back on a Gold Wing, But after my move from So Cal to Central Calif I cannot find my connection cord for my headset. It is 8 pins on the top it goes to a Nolan 102 helmet. But I'm sure any 8 pin will work. I could also use a headset for an open face helmet. If you have either of these items...

Most them show you how to remove the parts to do the project. For instance google oil change on a 1500 , or air filter chan...

Re: New tire...how old is too old?

You are going to have labor involved in mounting the tire, either by you or a shop, pay a little more and get a fresh new tire.

Re: Parts - best place to purchase

If it is the front 1/2 of the fender it is about $250.00 from ronayers.com. you probably couldn't get the old one fixed and repainted any cheaper.

Re: Parts - best place to purchase

You don't state the year, or color, but another option would be to search for the fender online (ebay), but again, again you would be taking a chance on the condition.
If you look at the right side of his post you will see it is a 2010 wing, but color is not stated

Re: Fuel hatch lock broken

So order a new lock and make a knob key. Easy fix and when you gas up you don't have to take the ignition out of the ignition to open the gas lid.

Re: Wants to fall over when slow turning or stopping.

Several years back I bought a Honda VT1100 Shadow Sabre. i took it for a test ride and when I made a turn it felt like it wanted to lay down on the ground, both way, left and right turns. I asked the seller if he had a tire gauge, took him a long time to find one and when he did he only had under 10...

Re: Tulsa extra-tall windshield mounting

Actually, once the Tulsa windshield is installed and secured, it does not adjust up and down like the OEM windshield. If you want to move it, you have to loosen the attaching bolts and move the shield and then re-secure it. I believe that in the instructions, it specifies to mount the windshield al...

Re: 90K on a used GL1800

The wings are good bikes and most owners say at 100,000 miles they are just betting broke in. BUT, there are other things to worry about than the motor. Fork seals, alternator, final drive, stick switches and make sure all the recalls and service bulletins have been performed, and there are several ...

Also I wouldn't count on any of these for proper tire pressure as most of them are off by a couple of pounds. ...
