When it increases speed, does it continue to increase speed or does it just increase by a bit and stay there?

Hey Englishted !

It continues to increase slowly....you'll find it set on 65mph and after about a mile you'll be cruising at 75mph....makes for an interesting ride...thx Ogre

:waving::waving:Welcome to the Best Goldwing Site on the Internet, Ogre!:waving::waving:

You still have that damn donkey hanging around?

I think I'd check the top button, the resume/accelerate button to make sure there's not a short on that circuit.

Could also be a leakingvacuum valve that feeds the actuator, might not shut tight and comes open a bit with a bump.

Hi Exavid, Thanks for your input I have a feeling you may be right about the vaccuum leak. The accel/deccel button works quite well. I've played with it while riding down the road and both buttons have excellent response....my problem now is to locate the vaccuum actuator...I believe its on the shift side under the side cover??? Big round black thing? sorry, I do have a Clymer manual but it gives no details on the cruise control..just says take it to the dealer and get a 2nd mortgage.....thx Ogre

In my copy of Clymers 1500 1993-1995 there are several pages on trouble shooting and adjusting the cruise. They start on page 384.

Seems odd that the didn't cover it in the 92 issue since the cruise is the same.

Hey Wingers I think I figured it out...due to my inept memory I was setting the cruise too soon...seems you MUST have the rpm settled for a bit on flat road before you engage the cruise control...then it seems to hold fairly well...sorry for the bother...
I think I have the Swine Flu....my wife keeps calling me a PIG ! hmmm

You must have something if it took you four and a half years since your first post on this to work that out. :cooldevil:

Yea I got moved to a job (involuntarily) that meant comuting 230 miles a day to work...didn't want to sell and move any closer because I had only to put in a few more years and retire.....which I just did 5 months ago....hopped on the bike and 8000 miles later summer disapeared....so I thought it to be a good time to get some expert opinions on a few things....ain't no Wing Winter Wonderland here just winter....

Good for you John!:clapper::clapper:When I gave up the working life I was real worried that I'd go broke but that didn't happen. We had to live a bit lower on the hog but the lack of some goodies was well worth not having to live at someone else's beck and call. A lot of us can give up much of the stuff that's really not necessary in trade for getting back what's left of your life.
