SOURCE: buying 1983 aspencade motorcycle , what problems

I have goldwings since 1980. They are very reliable. First thing I would change is the timing belt. (If it fails, bent valves...) As far as the stator, the normal fix for these 4 cylinder early ones (if they are still working) is to cut the 3 wire plug in between the stator & wiring harness & solder the leads together. Dirt, water, corrosion in this connection makes the stator fail. Make sure your carbs are clean and final drive & ft bearings are re-greased. Next problem that occurs that you can check for is oil seal in front forks. You can remove them & put new seals in by yourself if you have the tools. You should have lots more trouble free mileage if bike has been properly maintained. Rick

SOURCE: What's the best way to

Center stand the bike if possible high enough that you can drop the wheel out the bottom other wise you may have to take off the saddlebags , loosen the rear axle nut, take out the bolt, knock out the spacer , lift the caliper assembly out of the way and hang it by a wire, grab the wheel, and slide it sideways away from the final drive. The wheel should slide right off the spline of the final drive and roll out the back under the fender. If the wheel wont slide past the final drive let the air out of the tire. Be sure to coat the spline of the final drive with moly60 paste from your local Honda dealer when reassembling

How do i replsce s headlight on a 1983 Omega?


PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE!

  1. Remove the headlamp trim panel (grille panel) attaching screws.
  2. Remove the four headlamp bulb retaining screws. These are the screws which hold the retaining ring for the bulb to the front of the car. Do not touch the two headlamp aiming screws, at the top and side of the retaining ring, or the headlamp aim will have to be readjusted.
  3. Pull the bulb and ring forward and separate them. Unplug the electrical connector from the rear of the bulb.
  4. Plug the new bulb into the electrical connector. Install the bulb into the retaining ring and install the ring and bulb. Install the trim panel

How to replace a headlamp on a 1985 honda goldwing aspencade


Hello,

I see that your question is six months old and you probably have had it answered already. I will post the proper procedure for you just in case no one has helped you.

To remove the Headlight assembly, you will need to do the following;

1) Rotate the rear view mirrors 90 degrees so that the mirrors are facing up and remove the bolts holding the mirrors on - you will need to remove both mirrors.
2) Remove the windshield trim panel by placing a shop cloth over the slot between the windshield and the headlight unit. Insert a wide flat blade screwdriver into the slot and very CAREFULLY lift up on the screwdriver. This will unhook the latch from the holder on the fairing. You now should be able to remove the trim panel.
3) Remove the louver trim panel below the headlight lens. This will give you access to the bolts holding the lower part of the headlight assembly (remove them and pull the headlight assembly forward and slightly out of the front fairing).

NOTE: there are screws holding the headlight adjustment cable mechanism to the headlight case - these will have to be removed to take the entire assembly out. Next disconnect the headlight connector from the headlight lens unit and you're done with the removal process.

Install in reverse order.

Hope this helps.

Change spark plug


Your tool kit has a thin wall spark plug wrench with a grabber to change the plug. If you don't have a tool kit you can buy just the plug wrench at your local Honda dealer. The spark plugs are on top of the head . You may have to remove chrome carburetor covers or your lowers to gain access . Then pull plug caps, check to make sure there is no mud or collected dirt, if so clean out before proceeding. After you blow out junk (if there is any) take a piece of wire and make sure the drain holes are clear. Now remove the old spark plugs and replace with four new NGK DPR8EA-9 gapped to .035 in.

How to change a headlight on 1982 chevy c-10?


There are 4 small screws around the chrome trim ring...they are sometimes a bit hard to get at but usually pretty simple with a flashlight to see well and a good (correct) screw driver...do not drop them...they are tiny and get lost easy...I usually remove the top two, and bend the trim ring down slowly and the buld will come out easily, then unplug the plug from the back and install and do everything in the opposite order for installation.

CHANGING HEADLIGHT FOR EQUINOX


It is not necessary to remove the entire grill, just the chrome trim piece that extends across both head lights. Use a small flat screwdriver and delicately pry the trim piece towards you.
It is held in place by several small plastic tabs that are located across the entire back side of the trim piece. Be VERY careful in doing this as the chrome piece is very brittle & easily broken or damaged. Once you have the trim removed, you will need to remove 3 bolts that retain the headlight assembly and one press-in tab.
The bolts have 10mm heads. Two are located on the top of the assembly, one on the lower corner. After removing the 3 bolts, pull the headlight forward to dislodge the lower retaining tab which is on the opposite side of the headlight housing from the lower bolt toward the rear of the housing.
Once you have the assembly out, accessing the bulb is simple!


This is not the easiest job to do, so it is a good idea to take painter's tape & protect the paint on the bumper & fender as well as the clear, Lexan part of the headlight assembly. Take your time, be careful, & you will get it right the first time!

87 Lincoln headlight changing instructions


You must first remove the Headlamp bezel which is the chrome trim that surrounds the duel headlamp housing. The chrome trim surround is mounted to the Headlamp mount panel with three nuts which you can only access on the inside. Pop open the hood and look on the inside near were the headlamp bulbs are. You will see the three mount nuts for the headlamp bezel. Might be rusty so first give it a shot of WD40 or similar. Remove the nuts and then you can lift the headlamp bezel from the outside away from the headlamp bulbs. The headlamp bezel only has tabs that slid into a slot on the bottom so you can lift out once the top three nuts are removed. Once the headlamp bezel has been removed you can then access the 4 screws that hold the headlamp trim ring2.gif in place which is what holds the headlamp bulb in place. There are several other screws that in the same area but they are only for adjustment of the headlamp bulbs within the housing. Leave them in place. Remove the stainless steel ring that is holding the lamp in place, and then unplug the headlamp from the back and replace the headlamp. Should take you less than 5 or 10 minutes. Dan
