I myself haven't seen a Goldwing thread here either. But I do know a few here on the site that own Wings me being one of them.

I just picked up an 83 interstate 2 days ago. Coming from a V-Max, this handles better, is more comfortable, has less windblast, wanders less (none at all), and is more confidence inspiring.

It was running on three cylinders when I picked it up, and the carbs were way out of sync, but now it's running beautifully.



Little too much chrome for my taste, but I like the look overall, and the back lights up bright enough that I somewhat feel comfortable that the person behind me can see me at night.



I'm waiting on a stealth mesh one piece suit. I also need to get an antenna, because the screw on top is missing, so I have no tunes right now.

Good looking Interstate. If you haven't checked out Steve Saunders Goldwing Facts http://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums/ take a look in their For Sale/Wanted forum. Several folks parting out some wings there and some one may have your antenna. There are several folks over there that like chrome if you wanted to sell off some of yours.

Thank you. I didn't know about that forum, I'll sign up today and get the ball rolling.

One is that they are noisy in a turn and that the front can wear funny causing wobble. My old E3's made it feel like my passenger was squirming around on the back seat at lower speeds. I went with the Bridgestone Spitfire S11 this time around and have been happy with them. Tired front springs and low fork oil could be an issue, progressive springs help quite a bit. Are you running any air pressure in the front forks? Are the rear shocks still holding air? Although I usually feel low air pressure in the rear shocks in the corners when it start to whaller.
New e3's all around, ill check the tire pressures too. I need to rebuild the front and swap the rear from another bike that I've already rebuilt the rear on.... thanks

meet Ursus Purpeous;



1995 1500SE

AKA Mythbuster.....Bought it with 71k miles and at 74k the 4th gear selector went out. Thus busting the INDESTUCTABLE Goldwing myth. Found an engine with 4k on it and swapped it out.

I have an 85 that slips out of 4th. I want to pull the motor and swap it with another tranny when I get some time.

I don't know about the 85, but in the 95 you have to remove the engine and split it to get to the transmission. If you can find a low mileage engine you'll be way ahead in the frustration deptartment.

Yeah, its a split case job. I want to do it. I plan on having this bike for a while, and I turn my own wrenches always.
