GL1800 Goldwing 2002 Front Wheel Removal

This video is from Phil1800UK. This is just one of his 'how to' videos and I would encourage you to click on his link to see the many more demonstration videos he has produce.

I bet you have never seen a Goldwing trike before... at least not like this one.

Fitting a Compu-Fire Alternator to a Goldwing GL1500

This is a video explaining the process of changing the alternator in a Goldwing 1500. It was submitted by one of our GWCA members, Shane Reeves. It was published on You Tube Jan 2013 and has received many favorable comments. So if you have a 1500 and are having problems with your alternator, get a Compu Fire Alternator and watch this video to learn how to fit it.

Note, the positive battery terminal was removed first which is not the preferred way and could cause a very damaging short circuit if the tool makes contact with the bike body. The Negative battery terminal is very difficult to get to first though. As long as you are very careful not to make contact whilst removing the positive terminal first, all will be OK. You could even consider putting a towel or other insulating material between the tool and bike to make absolutely sure no contact can be made.

Fitting an Air Filter to non Airbag 1800

This video was produced by J. From looking around his Youtube site, he has produced a wide variety of videos. This particular one grabbed my interest however. It is a time lapse production of the 'changing the air filter' procedure on a non airbag model Goldwing 1800. I find it a comical look at the whole process particularly with the music J has chosen to use. Count how many times J goes back to the workshop manual to work out the next procedure. Looks like he has the manual on an iPad or similar.

Replacing the headlight on a GL1800

Submitted by Ron Harwood (Gummy)

Hi wingers, I have been experiencing some annoying instances of blowing globes on the Wing. I must admit that I have recently tried out some higher wattage globes which also were not long in life. It has been a frustrating task for me due to the size of my hand to change the globes and to that end, I found a YouTube video on changing the globes that I thought was quite good and explained the process well. Have a look and hopefully you will get some assistance from it as I did.

Oh, by the way, a bloke in the globe shop suggested that the fancier, brighter globes do not have as good a life span as the standard 55 watters??

Removing the fairing on a GL1800 with Airbag

 

Whilst this video is not in English it does demonstrate the procedure in removing the fairing very well. One problem with this video is that it does not show how to disconnect the tweeters which are attached to the instrument cover panel. Perhaps his model doesn't have them.
