Re: motorcycle tire blow out & tow SAGA

If you had used Shinko's in the past on this heavy of a bike you might rethink that. They just can't handle the load and have proven to fail early. At least that has been my experience.

Re: motorcycle tire blow out & tow SAGA

When was the last time the valve stems had been replaced? If not every tire change, perhaps every other tire change would be a good time to replace them. I know this is after the fact but the solid metal stems held in place with a couple of machine nuts is a good investment. 90 degree valve stem.jpg

By the way, if you need an owners manual I believe you can go here https://powersports.honda.com/downloads/owners-manuals and download one. I did.

I also have a Tulsa Tall on my GL1800 that has been on the bike since 2014. After 62,000 miles it is still scratch using 210 and no circular cleaning/polishing motion.
OOPs.. still scratch free.

Re: side cover grommet

Your best option is your local Honda Motorcycle dealer. The price you pay for 1 at the dealer you can get a variety pack from wingstuff.com or cyclemate.com. You will need them later, better to have a couple extra anyway. I wonder what the shipping charge to Australia is from WingStuff.com or Cycle...

Re: 1996 goldwing 1500 rear differential

Why does your profile say you have a 1988 GL1500. Is that what you own and are now just working on a 1996? The '88 and '89 final drive units are different than all the rest of the GL1500 final drive units. However, the gear ratios are all the same. The '89 final drive will bolt up to the swing arm b...

Side Cover Grommets.jpg There is a total of eight grommets holding the two side covers on. If you replace them all with OEM grommets from Honda, it will cost just under $30. #1 - 83551-MA6-000 - $2.25 each from Honda. $2.25 x 4 = $9.00 #2 - 83551-300-000 - $5.85 each from Honda. $5.85 x 2 = $11.70 ...

Re: Ecu for 2001 gl 1800

To find a used one, look at online auctions like Ebay, Offer-Up and Craig's List to name a few. Or search out motorcycle dismantlers.

For new - go to Partzilla.com or Ronayers.com.

Re: Off-road Rally Goldwings

There is a catch-all term that basically means that stupid people are gonna keep on doing stupid things because that's what they are, period.

"Stupid is as Stupid Does"

The term was popularized in the 1994 Tom Hanks movie Forrest Gump.

New to me trike, fairly consistent chatter taking off, kinda unnerving. Guess I'll go out and check out that return hole. Hey John, try using a 100% synthetic oil like Rotella T6 or Mobil 1. My '99 two wheeler would chatter on start off when it was hot, usually while riding two up. I switched to Mo...

Unfortunately, WingAdmin had to remove all the copyrighted materials. So no, I don't believe the manuals are available in the USA for download. I know they are out there from offshore accounts but I do not remember where.

Yes, it can be put on a thumb drive. It is 35 MB in size. I downloaded it from the internet. I'm looking to see if I can find an available version. The sources kind of dried up after Honda put its foot down on their copyright.
