Re: Beverage holder for 1800 Goldwing

You really can't go wrong with Butler. They are extremely strong and solid:

Popping and crackling generally indicates a lean mixture. Your low speed jets might be not flowing what they should.

Re: banged shins on engine guard

I constantly walked around with bruised shins when I had my GL1100. I know some have cut theirs shorter, but it really does lessen the amount of protection they can give in a tip-over.

Re: 83 gas cap

Soaking them overnight in Seafoam works really well. I would probably avoid vinegar, it's acidic and might do bad things to the metals inside it.

Re: Blowing 10 amp fuse

So just got my first Goldwing a week ago and it’s awesome. 82 standard. But it just started blowing the 10 amp fuse for the running light, gauge lights and brake cancel unit. It burns up as soon as the key is set to on. If I turn to park it’ll also burn the 5 amp. I disconnected the taillight assem...

Normally this is caused by a camera that takes a picture in one orientation, and saves it upright, along with a special tag embedded in the images that says "here's the way the camera was pointed when the picture was taken."

Re: How to torque drive shaft bolts on Gl1100

I've always just used box end wrenches on those bolts. You can simulate a torque wrench using a box end wrench and a spring scale or luggage scale, all it takes is a little bit of math. Measure the length between the center of each end of the wrench, in inches. In this case, it would be the distance...

Re: Shaft and rear hub lubrication

The shaft is not lubricated apart from the moly paste on the splines. The pinion bearing (where the shaft enters the rear hub) is lubricated with gear oil inside the hub. There is an oil seal on the shaft end where the shaft enters the hub. The output shaft stays in the engine, and is sealed - it is...

I agree with Greg on this one. A Helicoil will work, but whenever I'm fixing the threads on something that's going to be removed on any kind of a regular basis (oil drain pan plug, spark plug, etc) I would go with a Timesert every time. They definitely cost more, but they come with everything you ne...
