  1. GL1200 top speed 80MPH

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    imported post I'm really curious to see this one play out. I think a well tuned 1200 will top out at about 125mph. never been there myself, but I know I've seen 100 and there was plenty left. my guess is vaccum leak. Or a pinched or collapsed vaccum line. anyway, it's a cheap fix to replace...
  2. Keeping feet dry and warm on GL1800

    imported post http://www.danner.com/product/boots/rain+forest+mens-womens+insulated+work+boots.do Portland is a rainy town. I've been riding for 20 years and tired all sorts of ways to fight the cold on a bike. nothing beats quality waterproof leather boots. I've had3 sets of these, the...

  4. 1985 GL1200 A Hesitation, miss, bog, etc.

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    imported post Not neccessarily. I was battling with my carbs for weeks after this bike sat for 13 years gumming up. I was so fixated on clearing gum, that I failed to realize the importance of air leaks in the system. It wasn't until I got the Randakk kit that I realized the problem wasn't the...
  5. GL1100 Scraping the ground when cornering!

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    imported post I was pretty surprised too. I was kind of embarrassed the first time it happened as I was ironically passing by a Harley shop here in town. D'oh! Not saying anything about Harleys, but I wouldn't expect that from my well engineered Honda. It was when I first got the bike and I...
  6. GL 1200 Stator quit, I think

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    imported post I too thought I might need a new clutch on my 1200. I replaced the fluid and it's like brand new. I think the fluid had never been changed it was awful black slime coming out. Make sure you have a good battery and your Reg/Rec is working before you jump into replacing the...

    imported post My 1200 scrapes the centerstand if I have the air low in the back.
  8. 1985 GL1200 A Hesitation, miss, bog, etc.

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    imported post Since we're talking in theory now, here's mine: If the needle actually was wearing out it would naturally let more fuel through. it's not the needle wearing out at all. I think it's a slight leaking of air by the throttle, through the hundreds of small connectors, and O-rings that...

    imported post Excellent to hear!

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    imported post Sounds like a plan. My next advice was to try and find someone that has put this CC on a 1500, because I'm all out of ideas. finding a different source for speed, or different dip-switch settings should be the path I would follow. Please keep us informed on the glorious...

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    imported post Well, that all sounds right. are you getting a solid red LED at the servo? you didn't cut out the sound filter on the blue wire did you? did you double check the dip switch settings?

    imported post Mine is one cyl too. Shade tree mechanic method is to Spray a little propane around the lines and see if the RPMs go up. I'm going to guess you have good vacuum, but the wiring is wrong.
  13. Audiovox CCS-100 Cruise Control Installation on 85 Aspencade

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    imported post The black side goes toward the carbs, white side toward accumulator. Now that I think about it, you might not notice the small puff of air sucking into the accumulator if you disconnect it from the servo with the bike off. Red LED should be solid. Mine was blinking when I had...

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    imported post try the other lead on the coil. are you hooked up to the (-)neg terminal like the manual says? I switched to the (+) side and it magically worked. Check the continuity to the wire that you're tapping into. the little blue connectors that come with the kit work great, but if...

    imported post wow. I only have a 1200, and although I've ridden a 1500, I've never pulled off the tupperware. Treeshade Mechanic method of determining if you have vacuume: start the bike and put your finger over the open end of the hose you're thinking about using. If your finger sticks to...
  16. 1985 GL1200 Limited speed limit or where does it end?

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    imported post you guys are nuts. I regularly race motorcycles past 180mph and I would never take the GL1200 over 100mph. I'd be scared stiff!

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    imported post I'm leaning toward the crazy idea. get some sleep and come back to it. :) you have the whole carb assembly on the bench right? just like in this picture? take the bowls off with the whole assembly upside down on the bench. put the fuel line in your mouth and blow. as you're...

    imported post I have about 1,000 miles on mine now. great in the rain (it's Oregon- we don't tan, we rust) and yes, $129.97 delivered (that's for both tires). ordered on Wednesday, received on Friday: http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/3/31/401/6188/ITEM/Shinko-230-Tour-Master-Rear-Tire.aspx...
  19. Vibration at null throttle, GL1500

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    imported post If the intensity is directly related to the speed of the bike and not the speed of the engine it has to be a problem between the tranny and the rear wheel. My first instinct was to suggest drive shaft bearings or a bent drive shaft (don't know how you'd ever do this besides...
