Hi Folks,

Does anyone know where I can buy a windshield wiper for a 1991 1500 Goldwing? I bought one some years back from 'Infinity' in USA but I can not locate them anymore. Can anyone help?

Regards;

Gerry Hannon.

Hi mate, are you talking manual or electric wiper?

Thanks for your reply. I am referring to electric wipers

Not recommended.. The windscreens are made of a lexan based material and scratches easily.. The wiper blade will take road dust, grit& grime and scrape it into the finish..

A quality water repellent is your best bet to keep the windscreen clear and free from damage... It also allows the water to sheet off without leaving droplets to distort your vision... :clapper:

I remember those wipers Gerry. They never really took off, too expensive and too many windshields got badly scratched from them. I guess that would have been a big turn-off for anyone else thinking about buying one.

I know they scratched the windscreen over a period of time but I had one on a 1200 Goldwing for 4 years and by keeping the windscreen clean as possible from road grime etc. there was very little scratching after 4 years. I would still buy one if I could get it.

I would buy one too. Just for all the times i get caught 1000 miles from home on my pizza run . Really i would loved to have had one if i can find it..I did the hyder seek ride this year and had a limited time to do it in since my department would only give me two weeks off and I had to combine alaska with lancaster calif. for my streetmasters course. 9945 miles in 16 days. regardless of the weather!!!

What do you do about the road spray from cars on the inside of the windshield?

Inside the windshield is easy... Just wipe it with your hand.. It will ge wet again anyway. It's a motorcycle, not a Caddilac... :goofygrin:

A good coat of wax inside and out on the screen helps a lot. Most of the time rain or not I look over the top of the thing anyway. I kinda duck down when the really heavy stuff comes down.

Ah well guys, I always wear an open face helmet and find it difficult to see over the windshield with the rain pelting me in the face. I want a wiper!!! I believe the name of the guy I bought my first wiper from was George Welch of Infinity Trading Inc., Redmond, Washington. Please don't keep telling me to use lubricants etc.!!!
