Re: First trip advice

Plan to take a break about half way for a fuel and rest stop.. Make any necessary adjustments- more layers of clothing or less. Maybe a bit of food and a bottle or two of water never goes astray. Medical kit - emergency style. A few tools - spare spark plug/s. Mobile phone and let your friends know ...

Re: What's Happening Today?

It will probably take a little while for the strength to come back - hopefully it will not be too long.

Which foot did you break?

Re: Re-installing front brake calipers after wheel removal. Won't go back on!

You may not have needed to open the bleeder screws, the screwdriver option just pushes the brake fluid back into the master cylinder - as long as you are not too aggressive with it - you should not lose any fluid out of the top of the master.

Glad you got it sorted.

Thermistor help needed

Hi guys, This is not Goldwing related - but Honda related. I own a 1982 CX500 Turbo, which has finally been resurrected, and now running and registered as an historic bike - which lets me ride it about 60 days per year for a nominal registration cost. Soon after getting it back on the road - the fue...

Re: Re-installing front brake calipers after wheel removal. Won't go back on!

Get a large flat bladed screwdriver or a thin piece of flat metal and pry the pads apart by levering the screwdriver against the pad. Pretty simply you push the pads back into the caliper. Then when they are pushed back, simply put them back on, bolt them up - make sure to put both calipers on and b...

Re: Smoking when warm

Ditto on the timing belts... run some fuel injector cleaner through it for a few tanks - will help as well..everything needs to loosen up and bed itself back in again.

Re: another $250 gl1000 find

I think you have the good bones to put that all back together. Do all the required maintenance before you go riding. Those wires around the battery and solenoid will need some TLC. Definitely go through and first thing would be to replace the timing belts before you do any other work on the motor. A...

Re: What's Happening Today?

We had a massive cold front come across the southern states last week, and this forced the cold front down to lot lower altitudes. The snow was even dropping in the Blue mountains at Katoomba - and it was quite heavy (for our standards anyway). That is an hour away from where I live. Yes I agree in ...

Home from Canberra about an hour ago. Left at 9:!5 this morning.10/8/2019.

Re: 1980 Gl1100 poor running condition.

They sound like a bucket of bolts if the sync is not correct and will stumble off idle. My suggestion could well be another carb clean. Backfiring sounds like a blocked jet. Check each float bowl - when on the centre stand and fuel tap off, to measure the volume in each carb bowl. Could be one of th...

Re: totally off topic

My 2 cents worth would be a blocked heater core - so see if you can disconnect the input and output and try and flush it through. - do it both ways - and see if any crud comes out.

Re: Overheating

I would drain the radiator and flush it out - it could be blocked, but if it is bubbling in the overflow - have you replaced your radiator cap? Can you be sure your radiator is not blocked internally, remove it and give the whole system a good clean out.

Re: Is it time for a new battery?

Keep running it till it fails - seems senseless to replace if it is ok - you could have it load tested?
