Re: Alignment

Thanks for that info. I spoke with a teck up here in Seattle and he said about the same. I believe (hope) it to be some type of tweaking thing but I still can't put weight enough on my right foot to use the center stand to lift it. When I bought the wing it seemed to me to have a dangerous flaw in i...

Alignment

New tires, a patch of sand? Not enough patience? I was going less that 12 mph. Now the bike bouncing on it's right and then flipping over to it's left side. My 94 GL1500A is now completely on it's side and my ankle hurts. One month later: My ankle still hurts, but healing. (NEVER LET YOUR FOOT COME ...

Re: How to replace your front brake pads

Thanks for some good instructions with pictures. My GL1500A 1994 has been an easy learning curve with these articles. But, I wish to make a few points, which I leaned by the school of hard knocks. In a Gl1500, if you bleed the back brake, assume you must bleed the front first. Otherwise your bleedin...

August, Goldwings, Eclipse, Camping?

August 21st 2017. There is to be a full on solar eclipse. It is cutting a path across the US and if you ask me, it is a real grand excuse for a ride! I'm in Seattle and there are some places in Idaho that would be good for camping, biking too and viewing this majestic sight! I am thinking a place ca...

Re: Smoking exhaust

I don't think I have found such a neat support group in all my 34 years of riding on two wheels. Thanks much to all. I feel confident again in riding this sled from Seattle to Watonga OK (and back). This ride is at the end of August and getting ready for it has been a challenge. But I've learned muc...

Re: Smoking exhaust

Yes, I believe it does go away. Plus I might ad, it does this intermittently. I first noticed it on a morning a little below 60 degrees but, yesterday it did it after not being run for 48 hours. The bike only has 41 K on it although I am not sure of past maintenance save for a few receipts from a de...

Smoking exhaust

I've have owned this 1994 GL1500A for only a few months. I do not believe it was doing this and I've put 5 or 6 hundred miles on it sense I bought it, changed oil (HP4) filter, timing belts (hat's off to Steve) coolant and plugs. Plugs were a dark tan/brown with no big deposits. Now it seems as thou...
