Hi i would like to know how to add water for the honda goldwing 1500 gl i want to know what to remove to find the place were to add water

Sit on the bike and turn the handle bars to the right. Look on the left hand side where the left handle bar was and you will see a rubber cap. Remove the left plastic cover panel around it and remove the rubber cap. It has hash marks to measure by. Ad 50/50 antifreeze till you see it half way up the hash marks. Be sure the rubber cap snaps back on tightly all the way around.If you ever need access to the radiator cap it is on the right side under that plactic cover. But you can add coolant on the left side. This is the upper level resivoir.

First time driving a 1967 Triumph motorcycle coming up. Would like advice on where stuff is like clutch, brake, shifter and how to shift -- where the gears are. Thanks. Art

Hi Art! First of all, congratulations on your 1967 Triumph... that's a beauty!!!

Basic things to know before riding a bike is it's parts.

Clutch is the lever you press on the left side of the handle bar.

Front disc brake is the lever on the right side of the handle bar.

Shifter is the one you're stepping on when shifting gears and is located on the left side of the engine if you're on it.

Now, you must first know if the gear is on Neutral by pushing the bike before starting the bike. If it's hard to push then the shifter is not in neutral. Press the shifter by your left foot until you are able to push the bike with ease.

Hop on the bike and start the engine. Most bikes have ignition starters but if your bike doesn't have one, then you have to turn keys to on position and use the kick starter. Rev the engine by pressing the throttle grip on the right side of the handle bar.

Engine is running and in idle position. Press the Clutch lever (left hand) and press the shifter once (left foot) DO NOT RELEASE THE CLUTCH YET!!!

Slowly press the throttle with your right hand until you hear or feel the engine purr...

Slowly release the clutch (left hand) until you fell the bike move forward.

If I am not mistaken, shifting the gears of the triumph is 1-down and 4 up...

Every time you shift gears, you need to press the clutch to release the gears.

Hope you'll have fun!!!

Ride safe my friend!!!

Don't forget your riding gears!!!

Right hand handle bar has slight movement

Are the forks bent in any way? slight dents will cause bars to not tighten as will over tightening the allens on the bars. Remove the allen clamps that go around the fork and check for damage. If you need to remove be careful as to how you remove throddle cable and grip. Allens or screws and label. Then you can raise the bar over the end of fork. My bet would be a striped tread or dent and not the drop bar.

03 gsxr 600 has broken wires on connector from r/handle switches!

Unless someone has a bike and gives you the correct information you will be fine. Otherwise I recommend tracing back. Also if you turn on ignition, ensuring wires are not touching each other. Ignition will be hot and you should have a common ground. Kill switch will not be a ground. Start switch should be same color as the one at starter. Also turn signal on left handle bar will cause intermittent power to connector. It may just be easier taking apart switches on right handle bar. Or inspecting where they are actually coming from specifically.

Engine revs when turning right.

Wrong size throttle cable or misadjustment. At the handlebars, I've seen some set that acceleration causes a pull of the cable, I've also seen bikes set to push the cable. Confirm this is set correctly, and that your mechanic used the correct legnth of cable.

You will need to remove the gas tank, air box, and possibly some hoses to get to the plug. Not a hard task, just time consuming on a newer bike.
