Re: problem with radio volume

Check the mute setting. Or you might want to check for a loose connection somewhere

Re: Lowering suspension

lowering the bike will decrease your ground clearance, and that can be bad in the twisties. Maybe get the seat cut down or get boots with thick soles

Re: Value of bike.

probably $3500 to $4000 would be a price that it will sell. If there are others for sale in your area you have to price it accordingly. If they are priced high you could get a higher price but if they are low and you want to sell it you have to be in the ball park with the others ones for sale. of c...

Re: 2002 GL-1800 L/S Storage Compartment

Not sure of this but a long time back someone said you can remove the saddle bag lid by removing the hinges underneath the bag. I don't have an 1800 at the moment so I can't say if it is true or not,. Look under the bag and see if you see any hinges there.

My 02 did the same thing. I had to push in slightly on the saddle bag lid and pull the release lever at the same time.
You might want to check the cable adjustment also

Re: Sudden Loss of Power

A friend of mine was one of the first one in 87 to buy a new 88 Wing. It did not come from Honda with the ASV. after a few months they recalled it to put the shut off valve on due to fuel flowing into the carbs. You can bypass it to get you where you are going but don't keep it that way.

I have it on both my cars. You can get it for $5.00 a month. It is a limited package, a good variety of channels, weather and traffic updates, you just need to call them and inquire about it.

Re: Trunk running/turn signal bulb.. 2 acorn nuts keep turning

There should be a small panel on the bottom of light housing inside the trunk that can be pushed off with a screwdriver and give access to the bulbs.

Re: Trunk running/turn signal bulb.. 2 acorn nuts keep turning

This is common on the 1800 wings. When I started hearing about this I tried 2 of them on my 08 had the same problem. It was still under warranty I took it to the dealer and they broke the tail light to get it off and replaced it under warranty. Problem was Honda tightened them to much at the factory...

Re: Minor annoyance

take the bottom panel off the trunk, you will probably find the rods in there. If I remember correctly there are only 4 screws holding that piece on.

89 Cruise problem

Looking at an 89 wing. The seller said everything works BUT the cruise does not engage. He said the lights come on but the cruise does not set. I haven't actually seen the bike yet but just wondering what could cause that problem. It has stock levers so that isn't it. The bike is about 75 miles from...

Re: USB port problem

I loaded some songs to a thumb drive for a friend for his F6B, USB is in the left saddlebag, it worked fine, Don't know if there is a difference in the F6B and the Wing but it worked fine for him.

Re: Air filter replacement

manufacturers recommendations are usually for worst case situations. If you ride in dusty areas you will need to do it more often. Once you change this time you cab judge how dirty it is and if you can go more than the 12,000 miles intervals.

The SE has many different features from the Aspencade. 2 tone paint, rear spoiler, adjustable passenger foot boards, CB, rear speakers, and driving lights to name a few. One important thing, if the timing belts haven't been changed you need to change them now.

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,
