Thanks for the warm welcome.



Hey Scott, it lookslikeI'll be using your tutorialfor fork seals.My guy James, (Behind Bars)clever name, who primarily works on dirt bikes told mehe couldn't do goldwing seals for they require special tool he didn't have. humm? ThoughI didn't read your

tutorial all the way threw, you make it appear not so difficult.



I putabout ten hours in on her today, taking the carbs off. I have about a third of a tank of ten year old fuel and a very rusty tank. it appears as though the ran the carbs dry before storing, or more like parking it, because there was no fuel in the fuel lines to and from the fuel pump and i drained about a teaspoon full from each carb. The throttle shaft was seized up thou.Idid manage tofree it up. But when i drained the oil its viscosity was very thin and pretty sure i detect fuel Oder in it. I plan to pour new oil through until it comes out clean plug and fill.

I don't have an owners manual and was not successfully downloading a service manual from goldwingdocs. If someone would beso kind asto make a recommendationon type and quantity of oil i should use and what filter to use and where to get a filter. I think I say some motorcycle filters at walmat. Then i will use a gas can and some sea form and see if she will fire.



I'm open to suggestions,am i over looking anything?

Hello from Virginia,

Welcome Aboard!!!!!


Glad to have you with us!



:waving: :waving: :waving: :waving: :waving: :waving: :waving: :waving:


I recommend you post your question over in the technical section. Most of the gurus won't see it over here, and a lot more people frequent over there. Just a few of us greeters hang out over here on a regular basis.
