 chances are that your water pump could be bad or thermostat could be stuck closed  if you can locate the thermostat housing warm the motor up and see if the hose's on both sides of the thermostat housing are warm  if it is  it most likely the water pump  and  youll want to keep a 70/30 mixture of water and antifreeze  it the radiator  when filling their should be a air bleed screw some where on the cooling system to bleed any air out of cooling system while your filling it

How do you adjust the rear brakes on a 1982 goldwing interstate 1100? Tom


There is no adjustment other than pedal height , which is adjusted at the master cylinder by loosening the lock nut and turning the stud that pushes on the piston. If the the brake is sticking , take the master cylinder apart and make sure the brake fluid feeder(big hole) and the fluid return hole(pin hole) are both clear. Also make sure the caliper is clean and floating back and forth. That is so one brake pad does not wear out faster than the other.

Overheating, temp reached 207 after 5 miles of riding!!


this is not very far for the temp to be that high it could be the thermostat need changing or the rad is blocked up and need to be de-scaled also if the bike is running on a week fule mix this could make it run very hot it may also have blown the head gasket and hot gasses are getting into the water gaket but the first thing to do it change the thermostat as this is the cheapest part then check that the rad is clear and the coolent if flowing around it freely and air can get through it freely then check that the cooling fan is working, but if it over heated and it was being briven over 30mph the cooling fan should not have cut in as its not needed at this speed, its worth checking that the brakes are not binding as well and it is full of water with no air locks in the system

Front brake lever is very hard/solid when i


I am thinking that you need to change the fluid and replace the brake pads. Over time brake fluid attracts water and it states in the manual that brake fluid should be changed. I change fluid in mine every other year.
