Re: oil pan warmer/heater?

Hello again people of the Goldwing world... I have another question to ask of the learned and experienced people about the oil pan warmer/heater or whatever it is called that sticks to the bottom of the oil pan I think and is wired so that it can be plugged in to keep oil warm so bike starts when i...

Re: Gear Indicator Light

No, no gear light from the factory. The only indication of any gear is the N (neutral) and OD (overdrive) lights when you are in fifth gear.

What is the vertical LCD gauge to the right of my temp gauge? It doesn't move (or at least, hasn't yet) and the manual says nothing. So, guys, what is it?
I think you really need to post a picture so everyone knows what exactly it is your are asking about. Speculations really gt you nowhere.

Re: JACO FlowPro Digital Tire Inflator Gauge Review

The clip on the JACO is the best I have ever used, over MANY years of using tire chucks. You literally just shove it on (you can even push it on by pushing the hose 6 inches away from the chuck) and it instantly seals, perfectly, no air leaking. You don't even have to push it on that hard! To remov...

Re: Strange side effect of LED dash conversion???

Did you install the same size and manufacture tire when you changed it? How does your speedometer and GPS speeds compare now?

I can only assume that your change in cruise control operation has something to do with that new tire you installed.

Re: Strange side effect of LED dash conversion???

Were you ever able to set the cruise speed above 75 or 80 mph? If not, then you present situation is typical of all GL1500's. Look at this post: https://goldwingdocs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=41908 I made the modification back in 2001. Setting the cruise at 80 plus has not been a problem since....

Re: How to replace your dash lights with LEDs

All the options I gave you after suggesting a local repair facility of some sort was for ONLINE ordering. The Radio Shack, Newark and Mouser links I provided were for online ordering. Mouser may be your best option of the three.

Re: How to replace your dash lights with LEDs

Any electronic parts supply house will have the resistors you need. If you are unaware of electronic parts suppliers, go to a local electronic repair facility and ask where they get their parts or ask if they know of one that is local to you. You can also order online from Radio Shack: https://www.r...

Re: JACO FlowPro Digital Tire Inflator Gauge Review

With the JACO, the only time you need to touch the holding clip is when you remove the chuck from the valve. To install the chuck, you just press it in place and it seals.

Re: silicate free antifreeze

How much is the Prestone 50/50 pre-diluted with Cor-Guard per gallon? It can't possibly be inexpensive enough to keep me from using what I already know works and I know will not damage the internal workings of the Gold Wing cooling system.

Re: silicate free antifreeze

I do not have an owners manual for a GL1100. Even so, I don't think it would be a mistake to use Honda coolant in any engine that has aluminum components.
