How do you remove a windshieldfrom a 1984 GoldWing Aspencade?



I just bought this bike. ---It has a broken windshiled. I have ordered a new one that should be arriving in a couple of days.



The problem is I don't have a clue as to how to take the Metal Shield Guard and the old broken windshield that fits behind itoff of the bike.--- Any help from anyone who knows how to do it will be greatly appreciated!



Thanks,

Take off your mirrors. (two screws each).

You may have to turn them "up" to get easy access to the screws.
Those four screws allow the windshield "garnish" to begin to tilt away from the windshield.

Tilt the top of the garnish away, and you'll see a clip holding it along the bottom. Pull the garnish straight up. (requires a bit of a tug).

My name is Rusty. I'm an enthusiast of things that ride, drive and fly.

The distance between "Impossible!" and "All we need is a free weekend and some kind of rocket motor" is about 10 drinks.

carefully pull the rubber boot of your mirrors and it will show two philips bolts that can be also undone using a 10MM socket, since its your first time, remove both bolts and take the mirrors off.. then using a flat screwdriver wrapped in a rag or something soft, put it between the headlamp and the windshield metal guard, pull UP and it will release, take the metal guard off and it will show 4 philips screws that secure your windshield.

I noticed that the time of your reply coincides with the time the server does some daily maintenance.

When you post a reply, be patient until the server replies to you. If you abandon that page, the post will not be registered.

For me, the maintenance occurs at Phoenix/Mesa time: 10:00 to 10:10 each evening

And the server is usually "offline" for about ten minutes.




ATGATT all the way !!!
I'm still here, because of ATGATT...

It's WAY easier than you may think. Bend all that rubber around each mirror back. Go ahead !! BEND !!! It won't break, rip, etc. You'll see some screws in there. Take all of them out on each side. I think there are 4 on each side. Whatever the amount, take all of them out.

That'll free up the metal guard under the wind shield. Not sure about your particular year.............you may have to either just lift the metal guard off or slide it off. If it does slide, I don't remember whichway. ( To the right or to the left. )

Once that is done, the same goes for the windshield. The screws for the windshield will be just as obvious, but be more careful when removing them. There are probably 5 large screws to remove. Before removing, TAKE NOTE of their placement in their respective slots. High or low in the slot. It'll help when placing the new windshield in.

The old windshield will also probably slide out of some slots. Again, don't remember in which direction ( to the right or left ) it'll slide out.

If the old windshield has been there a very, very long time, it may take a little "persuasion" before it starts to slide out.

Good luck. Hey, if I did it, anyone can. Just take your time.

To everybody who responded to me---- Thanks a ton.--- Knowledge is a POWERFUL thing, and obviously I don't have any as it pertains to this antique GoldWing I just bought. Everything I have owned up to now has been an HD, but this old Honda was just too pretty to pass up!---- Unfortunately, what I know about Honda GoldWings I can put into a thimble and pour water in behind it.---I'm sure I'm going to have a lot more stupid questions over the next several months.--- Again, thanks for the reponse. It is appreciated!
