Newbie - Help Needed

Post by ehaughn »

Hello all,

I am new to the goldwing world.

I acquired a 1987 GL1200 Aspencade, with 75k miles. Overall in decent shape. Came with a side-car, which I am looking to part with if anyone is interested.

I have a couple of questions. I have rebuilt the master and slave clutch cylinders. I lost pressure when riding home after purchasing it. After bleeding the clutch, I suspect I still have air. But, should the handle be firm throughout when pulling the clutch lever? With the bike turned off, if I put it in gear, pull the clutch, the wheel does not spin. I suspect the clutch is not fully disengaged.

My second question. When I hit any type of bump in the road, it feels like the front end is going to fall off. Never experienced this in my riding of many bikes. Any thoughts what that may be?

Thanks all
