Re: Fog / turn lights

You can look at the blank plates and see what holds them in, it is the bits of plastic. Lots of room behind it. Only a couple screws holds it on, take it off and check it out, not a big job.

Re: Passenger arm rests

I had a set on my 92 Wing. of course they have improved a lot since then, but make sure what ever set you get that the trunk can open without opening the arm rests.

Re: Black Front Fender Extension

You could get a black rubber one from an auto parts store and cut it to fit,. I had a rubber extension on the chrome one on my 08.

Re: Popping noise

Personally I would stay away from anything older than an 05 wing. Frame cracking is a problem even if the recall has been completed. They are cracking in places that Honda have fixed under the recall. Take a real close at the frame behind the passenger foot rests and other places that it is welded a...

Re: Antenna

How about just reaching back and lower the antenna before you enter the garage? Or maybe just replace them with a smaller rubber antenna.

Re: Reserve Fuel?

Something everyone should do,. Fill up when your gauge reaches different points. You will know when it reaches 3/4 tank, 1/2 tank etc how much fuel you have left and about how far you can go. I always reset my trip meter at every fill up and fill up after every ride on my way home so the next time I...

Shouldn't be to hard to find. after market grips do not use them. Only problem is shipping since they are kind of heavy. Good luck, I'm sure someone will have a set . If not check e bay.

Re: GW 1800 comparison chart

https://www.goldwingfacts.com/goldwinghistory.htm

There were several recalls and service bulletins on the early 1800's. You should look at 05 and up. In 06 some changes were made, I had an 02 and an 08. Both are great but the 08 was a little better.

Re: Any Difference in Canadian 2012 GL1800 vs US?

I would agree, probably the biggest thing would be the lights, When we did a tour of the Honda plant in Marysville Ohio back in the late 90's they said that the exported bikes to some countries had different specs for lights and reflectors

I guess you know there is a different setting for headset volume and outside speaker volume. Also do you have the AVC set all the way up?

Re: Checking oil on a GL1800

Well I will be honest here. When I buy a new or used bike, I will check the oil lever a time or two. And I have never had one that used oil, so after I never check it again, I just change it every 2 - 3000 miles.

Re: 2003 Frame defect

One of the reasons I sold my 02 back in 08 and bought an 08. I could never get it out of my mind that even though I had the re weld completed there are instances of the frame cracking in places other than what was covered in the recall

Re: Synthetic vs dino

Any time you change oil it will shift better with the new oil than it did with the old. Actually I used both and never noticed a difference in the way or sound in shifting.
