Re: 2018 Goldwing broken engine case from small rock on road

That's why I thought this would be the perfect forum to try and get this out in the open and see where it goes. Thanks for your inputs.

Re: 2018 Goldwing broken engine case from small rock on road

I'm not sure. My string of wings doesn't include a 2018. The bike I'm speaking of belongs to a friend.

Re: 2018 Goldwing broken engine case from small rock on road

At a $100.00 per hour plus the chance of a mechanic reassembling something wrong and the ramifications of that I just wonder if that's the logical fix.

Re: 2018 Goldwing broken engine case from small rock on road

Yea, he was sick about it. He's had it back several months now and put a few thousand miles on it now and so far so good. I would have thought that Honda would have replaced the engine rather than replaced the case.

Re: 2018 Goldwing broken engine case from small rock on road

He didn't have any other pictures but I'm thinking that area is pretty much exposed.

Very interesting video. It appears that there are other occurrences.

Re: 2018 Goldwing broken engine case from small rock on road

I've wondered about that myself. I'd like to see an assembly drawing to see how the shifter shaft is supported on the inboard side. Also how the standard differs from the automatic in this area. But a close look at 1 pic below the oil filter there appears to be a gouge in the case which may indicate...

Re: 2018 Goldwing broken engine case from small rock on road

I've checked a few aftermarket websites a few weeks ago and I'm not aware of anyone making one for the "18 1800 yet.

Re: 2018 Goldwing broken engine case from small rock on road

This is a shot of the engine on a work bench at the Honda shop prior to disassembly. You can see the shifter area broken out. The other shot is a closer look at the broken casting.

Re: 2018 Goldwing broken engine case from small rock on road

My buddy said he felt the rock or whatever it was hit his foot then he lost oil pressure. If he took a pic of the damage I'll try to post it. This seemed like quite a coincidence to me and I was wondering if anyone else had experienced this.

I don't know about the one at the dealership but I think his insurance covered my buddy's run in with the rock.

2018 Goldwing broken engine case from small rock on road

Not sure if this is the place to start a new thread but I was wondering if anyone had experienced a broken engine case with the new 2018 wing. A friend of mine kicked up a small rock on the road and broke a hole in the case by the shifter. $9200 later he's back on the road. I had a problem with the ...

Re: Painted or Vinyl Wrapped?

I've seen the adds on cars but had never heard of using this process to change the color. I'm very impressed with your final results and plan to check into this for my "76 GL. I enjoyed the article.

Re: 1977 GL1000

Are you still looking for a set of passenger floorboards for a GL1000?
