Bought my first Goldwing, a '82 Aspencade with 45K miles. I joined this forum a few months ago about questions on a different '82 Aspencade and got several good responces back from friendly folk like nightwizard40and I want to tell everybody thanks a lot.

The guy I bought it from did not know when the timing belts had been changed so for a "piece of mind", I am having them replaced in the morning. The light in the tach about the rear suspension came on and I got to find out what's up with that.

Anyway, I hope to scroll some past threads here on mechanic talk and hopefully get some ideas of what to expect or do.

Thanks Steve,
I haven't rode it since Tuesday evening when I bought it and rode it home. I work 3rd shift and would love to ride it tonight but timing belts to put on early AM on the carport before this Alabama humility kicks in, lol!

That air light comes on when the air pressure in the rear shocks gets below 3psi. Take off the right side cover and you'll see the air valve to fill them up again. The 82's max at 56psi. Best to use a bicycle pump with a pressure gauge built on it.

Thanks for the info Michael! Fellow PGR member here also and my brother which rides a Harley with me is a Vietnam era vet.
Is this normal or could I have a slow leak? Hopefully, I will not be airing up a lot.

No I did not know about them. I am out of state right now (in Texas) at work. My wing is at home and I am doing some work on it when I can get back home to do it. I have it apart in my shop and I am doing alot of routine work on it plus the wife and I decided to do a new paint job on it while we had it apart. So I am not riding at this time.

Yup, if it's an Aspy, you should be able to press the rear button on the left (like in the picture) while pressing the increase button on the right, to re-pressurize the shock.

Thanks, just learning here. This site reminds me of my Kawasaki site, I learned and gave good adice/ideas on there also.

When I was in the military I drove up to Cullman most every weekend with a friend that lived there. We brought up booze from Selma and sold it to have money for the trips and the girls we were seeing. Orders to Vietnam ended all that. Good luck with the Wing!

Hello Deputy Dawg,



You live near the Durbin Peach stop, one of my favorite places to stop while traveling to Panama City Beach. :D

Hey Bernie,



Cullman still has some wild women!

Thanks for your military service to this great country, my brother was there the same time as you. :)
