Welcome to the best goldwing site on the web.
Probably more for an older bike then an 1800. What is your problem.

Good evening, in fact I have to replace them because I have 186000 kms and when I accelerate too fast, it skates and I have trouble passing my speeds. Plus, I have a funny noise.

My thoughts:
- are you using a synthetic oil ???
- are you using an after market clutch lever ???
- has the clutch lever's movement been inspected ???
- have you tried bleeding the clutch fluid ???

That's only 115,500 miles. Yeah I would check out what Greg said. These bikes can go 400,000 to 500,000 with no clutch issue.

I guys
In fact my bike was a "taxi moto" in Paris before and I think that the maintenance may not have been done properly, for my part, I use the 15w40 motul 5100 for a long time, my previous Goldwings (it's my tenth Goldwing,1x1000,4x1200,1x1500,4x1800..) have always rolled over 170,000 km before I the sells and rolls always, without any problem.
The purge of the clutch circuit has been made, without result. I have received the new records, I will make the replacement certainly this week, I would make photos. Thank you for your message,have a good day from France.

Please take pictures and document the procedure as you go.

OK ... not a trike ... if you do decide to answer the other 3 questions ... yes/no works best.

- are you using a synthetic oil ???
- are you using an after market clutch lever ???
- has the clutch lever's movement been inspected ???
