Many moons ago I had a 58 Nomad. I know it's not a Goldwing, but I had a similar problem it backfired one time one the freeway that it blew the muffler wide open lol, so after fixing the exhaust system and going crazy trying to figure out the backfiring issue I asked a neighbor whom was a mechanic and he took a look at it. In about as long as it took me to start and rev it up it backfired. I shut it down and he told me to go buy an ignition switch. I did that and we changed the ignition switch out. Problem solved!!! never had a problem with it as long as I had that car.

Food for Thought...

Ride Safe and Ride Often, Keep the Shiny Side up and Many Happy Miles and Smiles.

In God We Trust; All Others Must pay Cash!!!
