Thanks everyone for the quick answers!
It looks like one steering head bearing nut tool is going to fit a bunch of Gold Wings plus some other Honda models as well. That’s what I was hoping.
Also, it’s nice to know that there is a tool loaner program, and I would certainly make use of it, but I’m trying to complete my shop tools for future use in the coming years.
I’ve added a bike workshop onto the back of my house so I can work on bikes on the side. Been working on Gold Wings since my first GL1200 in 1984. Since I’m still working 40+ hours a week, and have to do so for a while yet, I’m only taking limited jobs at this point, mostly friends and co-workers and their friends. Don’t want to work all week and then work all Saturday and Sunday as well quite yet. Need to give up the 40 hr/week thing first.
So, I really need my shop tools on hand at all times so that I don’t delay a customer’s job waiting for a tool. (Bad enough waiting on parts some times.)
Actually just finishing up restoring a 1971 Honda Mini Trail 50 for a customer. Really cool little bike! Sitting on the lift in the shop between my two Gold Wings it looks like they had a midnight rendesvous and produced a tiny offspring!
Thanks again everyone for the feedback.
Oh, for zimco (Dave), the part number for the steering bearing adjustment nut on the top of the steering stem of my 2006 GL1800 is 53220-MW0-000. I would presume that is the same on all GL1800s.
