Hi all,

I am bringing home an old barn find this week. It has been sitting for at least a couple years, although have been told that it was cranked over and started last year but not for any length of time.

It is a 1985, model unknown at this time.

My question is this: What is the logical and prudent sequence I should follow to slowly and safely bring this bike up that would not cause any damage. What I mean is something along the lines of..
step one, drain and replace the fuel,
step 2 replace the fuel/air/oil filter
check this for condensation
squirt some oil into the here
let it set for x amount of time
then crank it up
adjust the carbs...etc etc

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a ton

Rik

These instructions were written for the 1000 but most can be applied to all Goldwings.

Thanks for all the responses. There is a wealth of information in the links and on the site in general. I will post pics when I get it and perhaps of the process if there ends up being one. This will either be the best $700 I have spent in a great while or a good old fashioned ass whoopin when my wife finds out

Reading through the posts gives me some comfort though...it looks like the worst case scenario may not be all that horrible.

thanks again guys.

Nah, it's junk. Not worth the time. Sell it to me.

Good luck on your project. I've got an 1000 that I've been dinking around with and someday it WILL see the road again.

Also, if you want, you ought to browse EBay. There are an occasional gem to be found there. But, let the buyer beware. It is possible to get scammed, sometimes even unintentionally by the seller. So do your research. I purchased a lot of parts from there and I didn't get burned once. BUT, the opportunity was there.

So, once again, good luck and good hunting.
