Re: Some Questions about "New to Me" 1988 GW GL1500

I have an 88 Goldwing just like yours. I also had trouble with the cruise control. I checked all the switches and relays and everything was working. The last thing I did was to take the cruise off on switch and set switch apart and spray them with cleaner and lubricator. 30 years of water and dirt ...

Something else I should mention is buying a clymer service manual
I bought one at the Toronto Bike Show for my 88. Everyone should have one. Great item.

Re: Wingstuff Half Cover Review

I have a wingstuff half cover that a friend gave me yrs ago, but have found it doesn't fit my 1500 altho he also had a 1500. Are there different sizes even when the bikes are the same style. That's my 1500 in the pictures with the cover on it, and even with the Tall Tulsa windshield on there, it fi...

Re: Some Questions about "New to Me" 1988 GW GL1500

Most of your questions have been answered very well. As for your cruise, I was going to suggest you check and or change the sub filter for cruise. On left side behind where reverse lever is.

Re: Seat uncomfortable.

I love the OEM seat on my 88 GL1500. As I have seen posted here, I can ride forever on that original seat on a 30 yr old bike. I did try my brothers 04 GL1800 and didn't like those little wings on the sides of the seat. Hoping if I ever go to an 1800, which I am hoping I won't, I can have a seat tha...
