I am looking to buy my first G.W. Would like an SE 1500. I know there are issues with 4th gear on some models. What years has the issues? Would like to stay away from possible issue?

Thanks, Brian

Anything after 1994 should be fine Brian. 1993-94 were the problem years, although not all GL1500's suffered from it.

I have had a 1992 for 6 years and have never had any issues with 4th gear ort any gear. Very dependable bike. I have put around 50,00 on it since I bought irt.

The way I understand it is that the issue was fixed when Honda installed the Vallerie transmission starting in the 96/97 model year. But that's just what I have read on the sites. Honda never admitted anything as far as I know.

Even some 1800s have gear problems, so any year goldwing can.some think Honda fixed them in the late 90s,and some think heel and toe shifter's are to blame. its a crap shoot.
