  1. Time to trade in your ole wing for the 2018

    General Motorcycle Discussion Forum
    Great discussion overall. I wish Honda would take heed of what is being said. They basically made a slightly larger version of the CTX 700 into a Goldwing. The touring, long haul capabilities, are diminished no matter how you look at it. Keeping the same fuel capacity and cargo capacity as...
  2. News on '18 wing ??

    General Motorcycle Discussion Forum
    I am also disappointed with the diminished capacity. The aftermarket nor Honda will not compensate for this shortcoming without costing a fortune. Honda should have at the very least kept the same capacity. Doing that, would really not add much expense to the cost in the first place. Having...
  3. News on '18 wing ??

    General Motorcycle Discussion Forum
    I heard that part too, and wondered if they meant the same as the current 1800? Or is it different from current but the same between the two offered transmissions? I am kinda leaning towards the latter of the two since the purpose of the video was to showcase the new bike. To me, he said the...
  4. Air VS Nitrogen in tires

    General Motorcycle Discussion Forum
    Now THIS guy needs to get his head examined.:ROFL: The ONE AND ONLY BENEFIT of using nitrogen fill is that the pressure variation will be reduced from cold to hot changes. Pressure is pressure, when it comes to air in tires, and it will not change mileage, tire life, tread life, or ride...

    reflection off the car. you can see it on the right side of the dash area as well.
  6. Reasonable Miles on Goldwing?

    FYI 318000km= 197596mi
  7. Cow farts regulation.

    Miscellaneous Forum
    I'm pretty sure I am one of the larger producers of methane in Kansas. I would hate to one day be required to have a backpack sized recovery system. :laugh:
  8. Low beam bulbs again

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    I cant say I have ever seen any advertising for those headlights. However, it DOES say on the back of the package they do not last as long as regular light bulbs. And I know that disclaimer has been on there for at least a few years. I sold them at my shop and told people that before putting...
  9. One dumb scammer

    General Motorcycle Discussion Forum
    Just sayin that I never did hear anything at all back from the seller.
  10. Would it fit ?

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    You could just buy a used rim from ebay, and get it chromed. I have been considering having a chrome front rim myself.
  11. Puzzled By Horn Problem...

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    Since you had an overdraw of amps, my experience wont help. Maybe someone else in the future can use the info though. I had the same problem on my 1500. Being used, who knows what was done prior. I finally put in a new set of horns, and, bam. Same thing. So I started thinking it was a...
  12. 2017 announced

    General Motorcycle Discussion Forum
    WOW!! 17 year long model run. Must be wanting to pay for the trip of moving production back to Japan. Looks like I will be disappointed for yet another year.
  13. One dumb scammer

    General Motorcycle Discussion Forum
    The area code is Kansas. Map shows Florida. He is a smart one.
  14. 1998 Limited ...what should I pay?

    General Motorcycle Discussion Forum
    Toe warmers they are not. However....after driving long enough for the bike to warm up on a cooler/cold day (50-60degrees), you can open it up and immediately notice the space where your legs are at gets warmer by a nice amount. I can drop my hand from the bar and hang it straight down to warm...
  15. Doesn't Stock Exhaust Mods Mess Up The Bikes Brain?

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    This is what I just love about 'wings. It's nice to hear all the bugs and frogs in the ditches as you drive down those nice county roads.
  16. Doesn't Stock Exhaust Mods Mess Up The Bikes Brain?

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    This is the typical results on any internal combustion engine if the exhaust is too open. And as mentioned, the A/F ratio remained as it should due to the ecu compensating.
  17. Oil

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    The tighter tolerances excuse is hogwash as well. One only needs to look at any current model owners manuals. Yes...plural. US spec cars will "require" 5w20, but the very same car, with the same engine, that came off the same assembly line, but sold in Canada or Mexico will say 5W30, or even...
  18. Oil drain threads giving out GL1500

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    Before you go and try a bunch of point-of-no-return items, I strongly suggest a new drain plug first. That is, if the threads are visibly smaller than they should be. After having a auto shop for many years, I learned to keep some fresh plugs on hand. Particularly Fords. An over exuberant...
  19. 96 1500 tach and speedo issue

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    For the last 2wks, the tach would not read engine rpm at start-up until a small bump got it going. Yesterday, the speedo started doing the same. I suppose one could assume the display is starting to get some bad connections inside? Once they start reading, they are fine again until a period of...
  20. Gun situations

    General Motorcycle Discussion Forum
    Absolutely.
