Re: oil gear oil

I use synthetic gear oil too (I use the Amsoil Severe Gear). I use a 60cc catheter-tip syringe (Amazon). Makes reaching "uphill" to access the gear oil fill chamber a snap; the larger tip on the end of the syringe administers the gear oil into the chamber easily. Also allows me to measure ...

Re: Christmas Gift Motorcycle Washing Soap

I've used the Pro Honda Spray Cleaner and Polish for years.
Works great, easy to use. 1 can lasts a long time. My Goldwing is a 2007; I still get compliments on how good the paint looks.

The way I see it, a motorcycle is cheaper than years of therapy, achieving far better results.

Re: Antifreeze leak

I'll add a question to this thread:

Do people tend to change their hoses at a certain point or do they just leave them until there's a leak? I have a 2007 Wing and it's been on my mind.

Just Wings - Zephyrhills, FL

Was riding through Zephyrhills, FL today and stopped at Just Wings, got to meet Goldwing Greg. This was the first time I've met someone on the Goldwing Docs forum in person. Had a good visit and learned a lot about the GL 1800's. If you need parts I bet Greg has them. I enjoyed getting to see the sh...

Re: COVID = More Motorcyling?

I'm riding about the same amount this year. I typically ride by myself, making it easy to find a country road and "socially distance" from others. Would like to ride to work more but it's been pouring down late in the day this summer, making the trip home wet almost every day. I typically ...

Re: IS LOUD CLUTCH SOUND NORMAL ???

I have a 2007 and live just over an hour from you. Agree that the Goldwing will shift more smoothly at certain RPM's (I've learned over time). I use Amsoil 10W40 and have had no problems, I've had good luck with full synthetics. The motorcycle definitely shifts more smoothly right after I change the...

I use the EZ Toll mesh holder for my Sunpass (can see the EZ Toll on Amazon). Just place my Sunpass in the mesh bag, slide the mechanism down to cinch it tight, and attach to the area just above the gas tank (will also attach to the handlebars or other area of the bike easily). Works every time, plu...
