Re: safe to boil float valve needle ?

i was thinking of using white vinegar, but it's good to know that they can handle boiling water. thanks. that is always safe, and being acidic, will do a better job that just water. IF, you have access to an UltraSonic cleaner, put the vinegar in the pan, and leave the parts in that for a good long...

Re: 2008 GPS Update Questions

somewhere, I read about someone who just applied the map updates from a Garmin GPS to the card for the bike, how he got it to work, I can't recall. he gave some in depth instructions, but I can't find that thread now. maybe this is it? did a google search https://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums/2-goldw...

Re: Cupping

no, from my experience had no effect at all.

I suggest that your rear tire did not have enough air pressure. I run 44 psi in m/c tires, and I also use beads.... Dyna Beads in my case to make sure it stays balanced thru it tread life.

Re: Synthetic Oil for the 2018 DCT

no problem at all,
as long as you change oils regularly, it really don't make any difference, what brand you pick.

I am using Rotella T6 in 5w40 for my 1800, and in taste tests, it is "the best" :mrgreen:

Re: Carburetor removal from bike

on the thermostat, I would just put the OEM stat in a pan of water, bring it to a boil.

if it opens it is good, put it back.
you might put it some vinegar overnight if it looks like a bit of oxidation on it?
in antifreeze? hope not.

Re: How to wire the Cyclemax knockout CB panel?

have not done that,
but am pretty sure you will have to provide your own 12VDC power from the accessory terminal block under the seat.

I can't image the OEM CB power connector providing enough current to make a cig lighter work.
