New member here & all I can say is WOW what a lot of info ! Been lurking for a while so I thought I would join.

Just bought a 85 Aspencade with 30,000 on it. It does have some rust on some of the chrome,pipes, saddle bag brackets. I was told to use Turttle wax chrome polish to get that off. Is there anything else better ??

But what I really need is those darn mirror boots as they are cracked & dried out. Can anyone tell me where to find these or will I just have to buy new mirrors ?



THANKS in advance !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am not sure if just the boots are available, but two sources for oem parts are www.bikebandit.com and www.powersportpro.com Aftermarket mirrors are cheaper than OEM but they are varible in performance. I replaced a broken oem mirror which was 14 years old (boot was great but tree+mirror=broken) with aftermarket and the boot went bad in two years, and they darned thing would not stay in place.

Hi there RickinKY and welcome to what's rapidly become the best general Goldwing forum on the planet. There's no marque snobbery here and we all do our best to help one another. You can get a brand new set of mirrors & rubbers on EBay at present, for only $66. They are the black ones as fitted to the Interstate, you can get them painted if you want.look here;

[align=left]I got a set of them only a couple of weeks ago and they are great.I hope this helps, and we look forward to your input here in the future.[/align]

With the Emgo, once you have them where you want them a squirt of crazy glue in the ball and socket will keep them there. Keep a protectant on the like Armor All on the rubber to keep the UV from eating it.

RickinKY: I find a hand buffing with fine steel wool followed by a good waxing cleans up chrome about as good as anything. It usually doesn't take much elbow grease with the steel wool either.

Welcome to the site RickinKY. This is the best site around. I used steel wool (#000) to clean up my chrome with very little effort. It can be purchased at Home Depot or Lowe's. I keep it shining now with Eagle One's Nevr- Dull. This can be purchased at AutoZone , Oreilly's and most all auto parts store for about $4.00. Hope all goes well in the cleanup.

It's been Americanized! They probably didn't want to get confused with the 'Factor'!
