Re: Rear Shock

Yes they do post the 1500. I have contacted their dealer in Canada who has also a distribution warehouse in Maine. Below an extract of his reply: I would like to confirm a TOTAL price to your door of CAN$672.75 for the Hagon M61105 Monoshock for your 1990 GL1500 SE Honda Gold Wing sidecar rig, and w...

Re: Turn signals misbehaving!

Thank you for the advice. I will for sure! I am about to put the turn signal switches back together. They are all cleaned and greased. Let you know if it solved my issues or not. After seeing what it was like, I am very optimistic that it will. What a sticky mess it was :shock: Again I took a bunch ...

Re: Turn signals misbehaving!

Sooo everything is back (4 way flasher) together and appears to work as it should. Clearly the old grease (30 years old) was the guilty one. Very, very sticky. Not a chance with the cold temperature that the switch would work. I took a bunch of pictures to detail the in and out of the switch and how...

Disregard the question about freeing the choke cable. I did figure it out. That is were the comment on step #2 of this post https://goldwingdocs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=18412 becomes handy. It gives more room to dislodge the choke lever from the groove in the comodo... then the head of the ca...

What is a good recipe for ABS slurry? I just chopped an old piece of plumbing pipe in plumbing cement. While it is good enough for this repair, I would need something finer for some of the body parts...
Any suggestion?

Turn signals misbehaving!

Well just got my carbs slides working the way they are supposed to. So before to put everything back together, I decided to check my lights and so on... I had some intermittent problem with my turn signal and now it seems to be there for good. The 4 way flasher was staying stuck so I decided to open...

Re: Timing Wheel

Spent some time in my shop this afternoon. The first thing I wanted to check was to make sure the brass plugs were still there on my good carbs. A good light and a little mirror helped me confirm that indeed they were still present. I put the bottom part of the air box back as advised by ct1500 to d...

Re: Timing Wheel

Thank you ct1500 for all the information. I am not sure I understand how the enrichment system would affect the slide. What should I be looking for? What are those brass plugs? Can't say I did notice them (or not) when I rebuilt the carbs ;) Not as good as zippers but a new set of boots sure ease th...

Re: Timing Wheel

I went back to the shop, remove the bottom half of the air box and pop the carbs out of the boots (Which are brand new from Randakk). I checked the diaphragm. It does look good, no tears or hole in it. I put everything back together being extra careful that the "tab" line up correctly. Crank the eng...

Re: Timing Wheel

Good progress this afternoon. I first checked the CAJ tubing location. No crossing, #18 is on the bottom and #19 on the top. I also checked the compression. No sure about the absolute # from the gauge but all values are tightly grouped which is good. #1 = 160 #2 = 150 #3 = 155 #4 = 155 #5 = 155 #6 =...

Re: Timing Wheel

My plan was to check the slide movements this afternoon. I’ll check the hose 18 & 19 for proper location. Both solenoid valves do seal when closed. I’ll also do the proper check as per service manual. I was going to check the compression as well. Just borough the tool for it. There is no noise or “t...

Not sure. I would think that I have OEM slide diaphragm. Not sure either how to check if they open fully or not... I suppose I would have to go for a ride without the air filter to see them moving... or not ;) ? Has anyone heard of these guys. Not even sure if they are still offering this kit? http:...

At that speed I am about 3K rpm and 1/2 throttle, give and take. My biggest issue is that if I go to WOT, nothing seems to happen and goi...

36167-MT8-013 is a Carburetor Air Jet (CAJ) solenoid valve. It actually connect to your carburetor and the valve is supposed to seal it. When needed the ECU will trigger the solenoid to open the valve and let the air in to the jet to adjust the fuel mixture. It is not supposed to be opened at idle h...
