Welcome, WelcomeTo Steve Saunders Goldwing Forum.If you have any questions no matter how trivial they may seem this forum is the place to ask them. What I have noticed is that some of the people here were :15red:'sin their previous lives and can answer any question you have. Theforums that I get the most from are::

Goldwing Technical Forum

General Motorcycle Discussion Forum


These have the best info aboutGoldwing’s and are where you ask questions and can get help..

For Sale/Wanted ForumGood stuff for Sale or if you have old parts sitting around the garage you would like to get rid of....


:18red::15red::12red::11red:


And when all you need is a good laugh to start your day try the:: Fun Forum After that it’s up to you which of the others you will like the best all I can do is suggest.

Again Welcome to the Forum...

Oh and did I mention everyone here loves pictures.. Show us some of yours... Even if it’s not a Goldwing just a pretty view

:waving:Hello Lenny and Welcome . I dont have any experience with the 1200 series at all . But you can use the " Forum Search " function , about midpage at the very right side of your screen ,in the "MENU" column .Sometimes though , its hard to find the right search word /phrase for your query.Above that you might also look thru the " Tech Post A-Z ". Also in the "MENU" is the "Goldwing Workshop" . If you cant find the answere please just post a question in the "Technical Forum " , where I am sure you will get some replies .

I hope you enjoy the forums and visit often . Wishing you many Kilometers of happiness on the Wing .

I did the same thing this past spring with my '85 Aspy shocks. I used a plastic poultry injector. Cut the tip to remove side holes.(you'll see when you get one) You can find them with kitchen stuff at stores. I would drain all the fluid from the shock first. Prop the shock at slight angle with air line fitting(look inside air fitting to see the hole) facing you.
1. Draw some fluid into injector,
2. press syringe into shock hole
3. pull handle out to create a vacuum
4. slowly inject some fluid.(repeat 3 & 4 until syringe empty) Then repeat steps until shock filled.
Each shock will hold 12.5 oz (or about 370 ml?) Hope you can understand this. I can try and post a few pics if it helps. It's easier than it sounds.

I forgot to add, you can use fork oil or ATF. I used ATF in my shocks.
