New to the Goldwing Forum. Scored a pretty nice 77 Wing. I am a mechanic and chopper builder by trade. I enjoy riding this old lady so far. I also scored a large assortment of spare parts that I am interested in parting with. Chris

1977 is a nice year, a few thing may need atten
tion as that was a "learning about emission controls period of time. They need to be a bit richer just off idle, many need enrichment at 3000 rpm, and unless running electronic ignition they need split timing. Lots of info available for these mods and nothing hard about it. The carbs are complicated but work really well with these mods, no fiddling required. That is as long as the bike does not sit for months with fuel evaporating from the carbs. Have fun with her, they are nice bikes. Also look over at for more info if you do not find it here.
