  1. F/S - Gl1000 GL1100 and GL1200 parts

    For Sale/Wanted Forum
    If you are parting this out I could use the odometer, the one on my 84 aspy decided to quit working. Thanks
  2. F/S Small folding trailer

    For Sale/Wanted Forum
    If you were closer I'd be in trouble wit the wife :D I'd like to have a little trailer for a "grocery getter" and this would do the trick. Like you I recall seeing these little suitcase trailers in the back of Popular Mechanics quite a few years back. That is a neat little trailer and your price...

    Right hand saddle bag lid I didn't get Rudy's lid keepers installed and lost my right hand saddle bag lid. Yours sounds like the same color as mine as I also have the 84 Aspencade in Metallic Beige. I'll send you a PM. Thanks

  8. Vapor lock on my GL1200Sei injected bike

    imported post Bike...and Dennis wrote: It usually does better than me. But most bowling alleys are air conditioned so when it gets good and hot it's nice to stop in and bowl a few frames. It's never bowled a perfect game, but it doesn't have a custom made bowling ball. Could be if it had a...
  9. Vapor lock on my GL1200Sei injected bike

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    imported post It's normal for mine to be bowling when the weather is hot out and I've been riding for a bit. The tank behind the motor and under the seat makes it nice for low center of gravity, but it sure heats up the gas.

    imported post Broke, I think you could have accomplished the same thing without the foul language and earned a little more respect from the lady. It's easy to rip on a woman or a kid, little different when you do it to some one that can bring the hurt back to you. If you come off ranting and...
  11. Here is the GL1200 symptom, what's your diagnosis? - UPDATE

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    imported post With one plug showing wet I don't think I would go after the pulse coils. First thing would have done would been to swap plugs around, then maybe plug wire, then coils. See if you can get the problem to move to another plug. By the way, did you happen to check to see if you were...

    imported post I would imagine that yelling at her and using foul language only convinced her that motorcycle riders are a-holes. That's a difficult situation as you had no idea what circumstances caused this person to act like they did. I'm not sure if there is a polite way of telling some one...
  13. back seat dog

    General Motorcycle Discussion Forum
    imported post I think comments stating that they don't think it is a good idea for the safety of the dog or the rider is helping out. Just may not be the "helping comments" they want to hear. Personally, the only way I would take a dog along on a bike would be in a side car rig. If the bike...

    imported post glhonda wrote: I ran into the problem last year and found my EMGO fuel filter disintegrating. Was out the other day, and like you say, it was around 104 or 105 degrees. The bike started acting up again. I shut her down for a few minutes and it fired up and took me on home. I...

  16. 87 GL1200 "backfire" or "pop" thru carbs

    imported post Bike...and Dennis wrote: Also noticed that it's recommended to turn the screw in for higher elevation. Which would indicate that it is a "fuel" mixture as compared to an "air" mixture. Meaning turning the screw out richens the mixture.

  18. 87 GL1200 "backfire" or "pop" thru carbs

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    imported post The poping does sound like too lean a mix. On most bike carbs that I have worked on those screws are "air mixture screws" and the more you open the more air it adds to the mixture. Maybe it's different on these carbs. I also just checked the service manual and it says initial...

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    imported post 3 turns is seems light quite a few turns, this could indicate that you may need to go smaller on you pilot jet. At least my understanding is that the more turns out the leaner you are making the mixture at idle. I'd check for exhaust manifold leaks. You might look into the air cut...
