I have been told the only thing cheap about a Gold Wing is the "owner"....!!

We replaced it with new when rebuilding the 1989 Gold Wing Trike.
I ordered new from Partzilla, but it must have been on the shelf for some time as it came pre-dampened, so I had to bake it out, anyway.

on the shelf or not, if there is the slightest pin hole leak, over time, that stuff will pull in moisture.

The desiccant in my '82 pump is always white, as humid as it gets around here, it's white 5 minutes after you turn it blue.

Still works good though.

Oh and by the way!

If you're an Engineer, which is my cross to bear.

The glass is always twice as big as it needs to be!!

For what it's worth and if I may be so bold? The current rebuild of the `80, `81, `82 & `83 GL1100STDASPENSTATE can be followed on in a thread called "The plan is to turn 140,000 into 50,000."
