Now I am checking Ebay and finding only other seized units with no one willing to open them, up and find out if they too are done for. I would buy a new one but I think this option is a long...

    Randakks shipping.. Just wow!!

    I am interested to know who makes the better carb gaskets, the "online they" is my question. For the most part, everyones goto has been Randakk (dime City). Most discussion I have seen point to Randakks with no real 2nd place honorable mentions. I know of K&L and Keyster with no one giving...

    Gl1100 clutch handle bolt seized and damaged neutral switch during removal.

    I am realizing that the Goldwings, great as they have been still are 45 plus year old. That means its hard to figure out a repair, its twice as hard to then try and find the parts. A simple pivot bolt can ruin the day.Thanks for the feedback...

    I tried all things to remove the bolt that the clutch handle pivots on. When all else failed and the slot on the bolt head was almost destroyed, I applied heat and finally got the bolt to leave the handle. I replaced that bolt but the switch got ruined by the heat. Is that switch something that...

    Hello all. I have begun the restoration, revival of a few GL1000's I had purchased several years ago. Unfortunately cancer became my focus before any work on the bikes could begin. Now I am back to working on my project bikes. As having sat for too long, I will need to focus on all the popular...

    Robert Overby wrote a very interesting article titled “Improving Your GL1000’s Performance”

    Hi, I have been reading alot of Randakk's articles regarding my ride (Gl1000). He mentions a 1995 article in Wing World in the June 1995 issue. He says you can find this article by searching the GWRRA Message Board Archives. I found that to do so requires a membership and that isn't of interest...
