Re: Correct instrument colours/faces

I think we need to know if Pistol Pete bought and fitted new faces - and chose the one with the red mark?

[I have not sorted mine yet - fairly low priority.]

Re: Correct instrument colours/faces

Those s/s pistons are probably the ones I found on eBay.com as opposed to eBay.UK "Made in Germany" is interesting. Hard to believe nobody thinks it is worthwhile stocking them in the UK for restorers of early Goldwings. [I had an email back yesterday from Roger Etcell's UK firm (honda-classics.co.u...

Re: Correct instrument colours/faces

Hello FC Thanks for confirming when green faces were used. I don't think selling the tacho is very cost effective as shipping costs from here in the UK are steep. [It works both ways - the only company that makes stainless steel rear caliper pistons is in the US - but shipping and import costs mean ...

Thanks Maz.

I won't order any new instrument faces till I'm sure of the type. I am 99.9% certain that my black-faced instruments that came with the '76 are wrong.

Thankfully the UK notionally retained the 'proper' system (like the USA) - and avoided nasty metrics !! The attempt to impose metrication on the UK was a contributing factor in our disenchantment with the EU ... [One mate always referred to kilograms as 'kiddlygogs' . He hated them.] I think in UK t...

Correct instrument colours/faces

Hope someone in the UK can help. I am slowly putting back together a '76 GL1000 basket case. Main instruments appear to be from a later bike as they have black faces. UK firm sells replacement green faces - BUT two different types of speedo face. One with a red mark at 70 mph - one without. When wer...

As specifically regards a fuel FILTER - I have bought a new one from David Silver here in the UK. Fingers crossed.

Re: New owner with 'project' bike in the UK

Nobody seems to know about that variety of electronic ignition.

I'll revert to points ( with some NOS Daiichi sets).

Re: Please tell who or what made you buy a Goldwing

What 'made' me seek out and buy a Goldwing ? (albeit in bits ... very bad move but cheap!) - I enjoy fixing bikes and also appreciate the engineering that went into the older bikes. I'm not talking about old leaky/rattly British stuff (been there - done that). Got far too many bikes but they keep me...

"Yes, stem make up has changed. They have replaced natural rubber with synthetic and they have added planned obsolescence just like everyone else has."

That explains the entire situation. Thanks.

Re: A new method of demounting and remounting tires on rims

Perhaps instead of lecturing us on your considerable knowledge about the chemical make-up of rubber you should ask the far more relevant question? Are we actually talking about Chinese or foreign/unknown/unbranded 'lookalike' valve stems now churned out at a very low price [and possibly inferior mat...

Re: New owner with 'project' bike in the UK

I did mean fuel filler.

I.E. the screw down cap that fits the fuel tank. [Mine had gone astray whilst the bike was in bits]

But thanks for the warning about fuel filters - duly noted.

Re: New owner with 'project' bike in the UK

Should have added :-

Also located/bought - all 3 calipers, front and rear master cyls., 'aeroquip' hoses, fuel filler, kickstart lever, odd knobs and bits .... so we are getting somewhere.
