  1. Gl1800 tire questions

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    imported post I am running a Dunlop run flat CT--195-- with no clearance problems. I have settled upon about 33 psi to give me the best compromise between ride and handling. I drove it for about a month with no balancing at all(had it mounted at a local tire shop), it rode very smooth. Then, I...

    General Motorcycle Discussion Forum
    imported post Well, over the last 30 minutes, I performed the experiment that I put forth in the last post. Not really that exact, but I got the RPM for each string length as close to the same as possible with just swinging my arm around. I used a piece of metal about 10 oz in weight. Scale...

    imported post Broke Winger wrote: An interesting experiment would be to attach a ball to fish scale using a 3 ft piece of string. Swing it above your head at 2 revolutions per second and then record the reading on the scale. Do that again with a 6 ft string and record the reading.
  6. antilock brakes on goldwing?

    General Motorcycle Discussion Forum
    imported post If you ever get into a situation where you may need it, you are already in peril of having a mishap. But, the ABS may just be the ace in the hole that bails you out. It may also prevent you from dropping your bike while braking on sandy surfaces. I don't haveit but wish I did...
  7. So you think you got to much snow?

    Miscellaneous Forum
    imported post I'm sitting here in Nova Scotia, in the good ol Maritimes, and the ground is bare with temps well above freezing. My old plow truck has been ready to go for almost a month. If this keeps up I will have to find another source of play dough. That pic with the snow swirl on the...
  8. Do you carry a roll of toilet paper in your saddlebags?

    General Motorcycle Discussion Forum
    imported post Yes, England---but it came from the Romans, who had indoor toilets during the height of the Roman empire. Water ducts that ran under rows of houses and carried the waste away. To where is any person's guess. I carry a roll. When the need arises, it arises in a hurry.

    General Motorcycle Discussion Forum
    imported post MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and yours, Dubswing. Looks like you may need a little more top insulation. However, it is a lovely setting and very tasteful.
  11. What's the best Tupperware glue?

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    imported post Ken Bergen wrote: The black ABS is probably not available at all in Canada--only the yellow stuff, which is NOT just a glue, but will melt the ABS just like the black stuff. It is yellow because of the plumbing code in Canada. Yellow makes it easier for plumbers and inspectors...

  13. Using Shim Selection Tool on 84 1200 Aspencade

    General Motorcycle Discussion Forum
    imported post I once had one of those tools, and it was quite obvious to me at the time about how to use it. I think that it included a table to convert the measurements to number of shims to use. My memory has failed me here. I was also using a clymer manual, and it may have been in the...
  14. 1200 engine froze up

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    imported post Sure sounds like the epoxy in the alternator scenario. May have been the starter sprag clutch but your test kind of eliminated that. Sure would be nice to know the cause. But glad you are back running.:applause::applause:

  16. 1200 engine froze up

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    imported post Asp Rider wrote: Guys, if you read the quote, he says that he can turn the starter chain in one direction, all the way around and the chain has no kinks. He cannot turn the other way. That tells me that the starter sprag clutch is working just fine and that the problem is not...
  17. 1200 engine froze up

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    imported post I doubt that the rings are seized to the walls. Did it stop immediately when you put it in first gear? How much liquid are you talking about here?? Possibly a hyd lock that bent a rod--but doubt it. Could be that the primary chain failed due to the shock of going into first gear...

    Miscellaneous Forum
    imported post Well, I am going to try to endure CNN for a few hours because I want to see this event unfold. It will be a momentous event and I am sure to become emotional.
  19. INSURANCE COST

    General Motorcycle Discussion Forum
    imported post "FULL" coverage can and does mean many different things to many people. Liability limits can be as low as $35,000 on up to 2 million or so. Some coverage has injury benefits and loss of work coverage, and uninsured motorist coverage. Much as it scares me, I have only the...
