Re: trying to identify Subwire harness for air suspension Compressor and Gauge

I was able to figure out the wiring scheme, but now I need to see if I can find this somewhere...does anyone know where I might look for this part?

trying to identify Subwire harness for air suspension Compressor and Gauge

Guys, I decided to repair my Progressive shocks, and in the process, decided to purchase an 82 Compressor and Gauge system off of eBay. The system looks good, but the wiring that came with it was a butcher job. the original OEM sub-wire is unavailable so I get it. I'm a little confused by the wiring...

Re: removed rear wheel and right rear Shock separated

Indianakid, you are correct that is why I asked intially. These are actually Progressive Shocks. Wilcoy, I saw the tool that you fabricated, in your video, but I noticed that there was a product on Amazon: shock compressor.jpg Do you think this might work as well? I really appreciate you offering to...

Re: removed rear wheel and right rear Shock separated

The oem should be all you need. Your shock should still be usable IF THE THREADS are not stripped.You did not show the springs.If there are 2 springs inside then someone has already changed to progressive springs. If not then I would put progressive springs in. 40 year old springs is asking a lot I...

Re: removed rear wheel and right rear Shock separated

If I recall correctly the 80 had low spring pressure, on the tac. That would be where the wire you have goes. Check this video out. https://goldwingdocs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=36307 This will show how you can put your shock back together. Keep us posted. Wilcoy, interestingly enough, I watc...

Re: removed rear wheel and right rear Shock separated

Well I've decided, instead of trying to do a rebuild, I thought about finding some OEM air shocks and get a compressor and gauge system from an 82 Aspencade and set it up on my 80 GL1100. I was wondering if there is any place I can go to to get a diagram of the setup, I feel I can do this but sure w...

removed rear wheel and right rear Shock separated

Hi everyone, was hoping I could get some advice on my Rear shocks. So I finally put some miles on my 80 GL1100, and wow, what a blast it's been. I decided that the tires need to be replaced, so I set on removing the rear wheel. WingAdmin's DIY is awesome, and after breaking my back bending over in t...

Re: New question to an Old Thread

Just an update to the Neutral light situation. I got a new diode, but it still did not resolve the issue, so I finally had to do the dreaded neutral switch. in the process of trying to remove it, the wire broke off, and I remembered in another thread, WingAdmin stated that if the wire was disconnect...

Re: New question to an Old Thread

I found the diode. I pulled it out, and was expecting to see the neutral light to go off, and it didn’t. Is it supposed to if I pull the diode?

You need to go to the right of the branch of wires. Mine was toward the air intake box.
Thanks, I will check to see if something is in that location.

Re: New question to an Old Thread

So i finally started chasing down the neutral switch wire, but it seems to be in a plug interface. I was trying to pinpoint the Diode in question, but I don't seem to see one. I was looking for a square diode closer to the recitfier right?

Re: New question to an Old Thread

I know one is buried in the wiring harness. Located by the left knee. There is a branch that goes to the right side. Unwrap the harness tape by left knee and work your way to the branch. Buried in the wires is a diode. I had to replace as my neutral light never went off. I have not found this diode...

Re: New question to an Old Thread

If Neutral light changes brightness when shifting in/out of neutral, methinks the switch is OK and something else is putting a different ground path to the bulb. Seems there's a couple diodes in the Neutral light circuit, one of them may be "futzed". You wouldn’t happen to know where those diodes m...

High idle 2. changed my belts but took the engine off of TDC. 1. tried to clean carbs, but I purchased lackluster gaskets. ended up having to send it off to a professional to clean for me. 2. because I screwed up the posit...

Re: Timing, ticking and other issues

Don't buy another head, I have several if you need one. Doubt that I have the valves you need, but maybe some good ones are still in one of the heads. Yours for the taking, and the postage.

Re: Timing, ticking and other issues

I would lap the valve seat - and then take it to a shop and ask them what they think - at least if you clean it up a bit may be easier for them to make a decision for you. You say the valve broke - you were very lucky.. At least I think you need possibly a new valve guide - new valve - or a replace...

Re: Timing, ticking and other issues

so i pulled the head, and not only was the valve bent, but it broke in the exhaust port. thankfully, there was no damage to piston or piston wall. looking at the pic, can you all tell me if I need to replace the head or would valve lapping correct the mar in the port rim? Also, looks like a gouge in...

Re: Timing, ticking and other issues

Yes 77-83 are interchangable Wilcoy02, I'm going to pull the head tomorrow. I pulled the exhaust and I can see a gap in the valve and exhaust port on piston #4. I wanted to ask what to do, once I get everything back on and I'm lining up the TDC and both Cogs. I have the right Head on still and I've...

Re: Timing, ticking and other issues

So I went to HF, and purchased a Vaccum Leak down tester. plugged it up the port, set my compressor to 40PSI and opened the valve. no pressure built up and the air was coming out of the Exhaust. Looks like head pulling time. Wilcoy02, I know you sent me information on the Head Gaskets, but do you kn...

Yes you can move the engine ONLY clockwise. Did the stems drop down when you removed the shaft and rope?
From what I saw last night, it didn’t seem like the stems dropped. Are they suppose to drop in? I would think the springs would keep them from dropping unless I removed the retaing clip
