Re: How to install Dyna Beads in your tires

Dyna Beads website told me to use 2oz for the rear and 1oz for the front. Put the rear beads in last night...

Should I be taking the 1oz bag back and getting another 2oz bag?

Re: Front-end wobble - Notice to Goldwing newbies

My wobble seemed more pronounced when I was making a turn and applying the front brakes. That leads me to believe that the WingAdmin might have pinpointed the problem to a sticking wheel caliper. As I have removed fairing, I see that the front wheel has two rotors and calipers. Perhaps uneven press...

Re: How to remove and reinstall your rear wheel

Great How-to... just finished installing the rear tire on my 83. You really should write the manual. I have my Clymers out - but havnt opened it yet.

Re: Rear Tire

Keep us up to date. I just bought the same for my wing - the Elite II's are very old and no longer available. And here in Alberta we get flat middles and very little wear on the sides - so new tires are needed.

Re: CB Channel

We travel a lot of truck routes - so we use channel 19 to keep up on speed traps, construction, hazards and general tom-foolery.
