Re: Does Pacifico fairing use Honda headlight parts?

You guys can stop looking now, I found it. I had time to start working on the bike and I removed the fairing yesterday. Only the glass headlight and bulb is a real Honda part. The rest of the retainer ring and base and adjuster assemblies, and even the outer chrome trim ring are made only for the fa...

Re: Identifying correct fenders by year

Thanks Joneszy. I didn't think about the fender supports before. The different part numbers for the fenders is what started my search for the correct fender for my 78. Mine has an aftermarket accessory fiberglass fender on which I see was a popular option back in the day. I'll look at the fenders ag...

Identifying correct fenders by year

I have learned that 78-79 front fenders are the same and 75-77 are the same but I don't see any physical difference between them when looking at all the pictures available. Is there really any difference somebody can actually notice?

Does Pacifico fairing use Honda headlight parts?

Hi guys. I just picked up a 78 GL1000 today. I haven't done any disassembly on it yet. It's very stock except it has a Pacifico fairing on it. It also has its stock headlight bucket with nothing inside it except a lot of wires and the stock chrome fork ears still mounted in place. Does anyone here k...

Hi guys. I think RBGERSON has moved on to something else and is no longer here. He hasn't logged on this GoldwingDocs site in one and a half years now. He was a really good guy. He helped me a couple of times with answers to questions I had. Sorry to lose him.

Re: Honda emblem on fuel tank

Hi Bill. The Honda emblem is held on the inside of the false tank by two small speed nuts that push on over the two plastic studs on the back of the plastic emblem. Sorry but I think one of the little studs must have broken off if the emblem was hanging down like that.

Re: Need O-Ring Size for 1982 GL1100 Air Shocks

Hi Jimmy. Your description of the part you're talking about is confusing to everybody. The names of the parts you're using aren't called that by Honda. I suggest you post a picture here of the piece the O-ring fits into and we will be able to help you.

I have those part numbers for you. The tiny one around the 8mm dowel pin is Honda part #91361-706-000 superseded by Honda part #91352-SA5-952. Both numbers are valid and both are the identical part still available new from Honda. The bigger one on the other side of the engine is Honda part #91333-56...

Re: Rear Axle

Don't just hammer away on it without setting up a support first. You must brace the swingarm against something that can't move because the force from hammering will push the swingarm sideways. If the swingarm gets bent nothing will ever line up again during reassembly. It's also helpful if you pry o...

Re: 81 gl1100 foot pegs

1980 and 1981 footpegs are exactly the same, no visible difference. They even have the same Honda part numbers for left and right those years. 82 is shaped different only in the arm portion, but 83 is totally different from your bike's style.

Re: 81 gl1100 foot pegs

Go to ebay and enter 264524211569 in the search. It will take you to a left footpeg for your 1981 Goldwing. If the asking price is to high just enter a best offer in the box provided. Hopefully you can get it.

Re: 1982 Fork teflon parts

You have the correct part number for the top bushing (51414-463-003) but the correct part number for the bottom bushing or sleeve is actually 51415-463-003. Both are still available new from Honda.

Re: GL1100I passenger back rest

You could change the trunk to an 82 or 83 Aspencade trunk. Those have a much taller backrest pad than the Interstate models. I don't think there are any aftermarket options for backrest pads for the GL1100. There is also the possibility the backrest pad from an 82 or 83 Aspencade might bolt straight...

Those are still available new from Honda. Your 1979 part is either 32411-230-000 or 32411-253-000. I'm not sure which your bike takes but they both look like the picture you show in your original post.Your dealership parts guy can tell you which is right for your GL1000 if you check with him.
