  1. Transmission noise in GL1100

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    Dave - Thanks for the tip. I remember reading something about that spring in another post. Will need to track down the thread to figure out how to check it. Jim
  2. Transmission noise in GL1100

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    The motor was stone cold for the video and only ran it for about a minute to make the video. I was thinking it was going to be a transmission problem hoping it may have been a spring as mentioned in other posts. Why would the heel-toe shifter be a cause for the fork to break?

    Thanks for the replies. No noise spinning the wheel and noise only occurs while motor is running whether in gear or neutral. Will try to put the video link on You Tube. (May have to have my teenage daughter show me how!!) Jim

    I have a 1981 GL1100 that I have owned since it had 4k miles on it in 1981. Now it has 88k miles. Came home from work last week and something broke in the transmission or shifting mechanism. I have a video which would make it obvious to the mechanics out there, but I have no idea how to upload a...

    I purchased my Goldwing when it was 4 months old in 1981. I was 22 years old and soft clean hands spending more time with books than wrenches. I had an 18 yr old car and not a lot of money. With no internet, I read books and catalogs to keep the car running for use in awful, usually frozen...

  8. GL1200A Brakes Rebuild

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    I bought a K&L kit. Appreciate the info on the return hole plugging. How do I check for and correct this? Will forcing the pistons back into caliper and replacing the fluid be enough?

    I had to look up Pleasant Garden on the map! I am in Mooresville, north of Charlotte on I-77.
  10. GL1200A Brakes Rebuild

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    I have a rear brake caliper on a 1986 GL1200 that is dragging and I am guessing needs a rebuild. This is a new project for me. I ordered a kit, pads and pistons and am hoping that this will not be too difficult. My manual says special tools are needed, but does not say how to do the rebuild...

    I bought my 1st Goldwing, a GL1100, in 1981 and still have it. At the time, I was young and it was new - not so much anymore! I 'upgraded' with a 1986 GL1200 Interstate a couple years ago. I have done much of my own maintenance over the years, but occasionally need some help. I hope I can be a...
