Re: Dropped bolt

I have a set of 1/4" drive, metric deep sockets. I keep them in the original package because it is easy to see if one is missing. Well, the 10mm is missing along with the tiny ratchet it is was on last I remember. then the whole damn pack of deep sockets disappeared.... looked all over the plantatio...

Re: What cooler do you have/recommend

I was wondering about that Ozark Trail cooler.

was thinking of getting it for our Toy Hauler, we need room to hold a lot of water bottles and keep them cold.

Re: F6B Heal Toe Shifter

I bought a '98SE with floorboards and heel toe shifter on it. the very first time that I had to pull off the highway, about 50 miles after I bought it, the road base sloped downhill about 15 degrees from the pavement. I needed to put my right foot down "now" to keep the bike vertical. the floorboard...

Re: F6B Heal Toe Shifter

It would bother me, as you can't know the rider's habits of whether or not he allowed his feet to rest on the shifter.... that can bend the forks.

IF, a test ride reveals a clean shift, up and down, all the way, many times,
then it should be okay. but that Heel toe shifter would disappear for me.

Re: New 2018 Goldwing Survey

I think a short test ride of, at most 100-200 miles, is not nearly enough to figure out and appreciate this new Wing. Truer words were never spoken. There's a definite learning curve to the DCT, especially for low speed handling. The odd part (for me) though, is that my test ride took only 15 minut...

Re: No start

Re: Runs then dies but will restart....

the higher octanes will actually contribute to making an engine ping "down the road" after a long time of using it. 93 is not fully combusted in our low combustion ratio Goldwing engines, and therefore, it leaves carbon residue behind on the heads and tops of the pistons..... eventually, that will c...

Re: Runs then dies but will restart....

I run 93, use Seafoam. Checked for water in gas. That is fine. 93 what? if you mean octane, you are wasting your money. all Goldwings, regardless of year, are made to run on 87.... a higher octane does not make them perform better. 93 mph? must be running okay :D From what I have read before, you j...

Re: cruise control

I doubt that it will be hard to make it work right, they just don't give any trouble as a rule.

with a '94, '98, and my 2002, none of them have ever given a real problems.

slight miss calibration for the "set speed", but that is just a cable maladjustment.

I saw one guy's UltraGuard half cover at a rally last year.

he got some of that leatherette stuff with flannel on the backside, and sewed that to the cover on the bottom side, made a super neat package.

I suppose I'm in a definite minority, but I would not have even considered the 2018 Wing had it not been downsized from previous model years. I traded a much belo...
