Tip & How-To about 1984 Honda GL 1200 Aspencade Gold Wing
Changing or removing your rear tire on a Goldwing is pretty trait forward. There are several videos on youtube that gives very detailed instructions of how to remove it, however none of them address a couple of issues that I just had with my Aspencade GL1200A.
First, and foremost, not a single posting is available online to show you how to do an "Emergency Roadside Repair" All of them were about doing the removal (Shop style) So I'm going to provide some info here that should help out anyone who needs the instructions.
If you have additional hardware, like chrome light bars or mud flaps, you will need to address removing these before any of the informational videos will be helpful. Unfortunately, as there are several variations of aftermarket parts, you will have to be the one to decide how to remove them. Personally on mine, I have to remove 2 light bars, a trim light for the license plate, and a custom mudflap with lights, before I could gain access to the starting line of the tutorials on youtube.
Now for the BIG INFORMATION! I'll have it all CAPS for easy reference.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO REMOVE THE FINAL DRIVE TO REMOVE THE TIRE!
