Re: Clutch master cylinder / sight glass

When I shift into first and second gear on my bike I too will get a clunk. 3rd, 4th, and 5th gear are all normal. But I only get the "clunk" when I shift into the first and second gears. I have NO problems when I let out on the clutch in any gear and it hasn't affected the driving as of yet. However...

Re: Clutch master cylinder / sight glass

Re: Clutch master cylinder / sight glass

Thank you everyone for all of the suggetions! The super glue/baking soda trick did not work, at least for me. I took a small pick and pulled it all off of the master cylinder. I took a red scuff pad and scuffed up the sight glass itself and surrounding area. Cleaned with the brake clean again and wi...

Re: Clutch master cylinder / sight glass

I have seen where someone took an actual dime and JB welded it into the master cylinder as well. And it worked out well for him. This morning I had to go to the local Honda motorcycle dealer for a unrelated issue, not with my bike but their A/C. I know the head mechanic personally so I asked him wha...

Clutch master cylinder / sight glass

Was wondering if anyone knows if the sight glass in the clutch master cylinder is the same as the front brake master cylinder. And if either one is replaceable. If so how and where can I get the replacement parts. I want to say that I remember at some point someone telling me it was, but my memory i...

Re: Goldwing versus deer

I have had mine off of my 85 Ltd. It wasn't fun! However nor was it extremely difficult. Take your time and be very careful not to lose any nuts and bolts. I have all of the Honda manuals on my bike. And I didn't use any of them to remove the front fairings , lower or upper! Common sense and patient...

Re: GL1200 LTD antenna

I also have a 85 Limited. It, of course, has the dual antenna set up. To cover both the stereo as well as the CB radio. Both antenna's are 100% identical. And ALL of the 85 Wings I have seen have had the exact same antenna regardless of model. Shouldn't be too hard to find another one. Hope you get ...
