SOURCE: 1977 honda goldwing rear tire removal never had

Get a service manual.
there are two ways to go. both time consuming and of moderate difficulty.
My favorite is to remove the trunk, saddlebags, rear fender as a unit. Then the tire is in the open to work on. Not an easy job.

Sounds like the charging circuit is breaking down causing a strain on the alternator and making the motor struggle.If it picks up on the throttle then this may be the case.
Check all the earth connections as these have a habbit of corroding and causing a high resistance.

SOURCE: 1977 Honda GL1000 Goldwing. I replaced the water

I have a few 1977 GL-1000 bikes.
I thought one was overheating but it turned out that the 9 volt regulator was fried and was putting 12 volts to the temperature gauge. Temperature was really OK. The fan switch is probably not lying

SOURCE: I am trying to remove a starter from a 1978 Honda

well at this point if you having a problem because the cable is connected i suggest you remove the starter and cable then work on getting the nut of on the work bench its only a small nut when you have it out on the work bench take a fine toothed hack saw and carefully cut almost through the nut then use a small chisel and small ball peen hammer to split it you dont want to damage the post if your going to rebuild it.

SOURCE: how do you remove the

Center stand the bike, place a jack under the motor but do not lift yet,unbolt calipers and hang with wires, loosen the four nuts and washers on the bottom of fork on nut looking end of axle(nut should turn but may not be tight), loosen nut on axle, now take off all nuts washers,and pull off two caps. Now slowly jack up motor to rock bike back on center stand, just enough to roll wheel out the front. When putting caps back on make sure arrows on the caps are pointed forward. Also use feeler gauge in tool kit (or eyeball it) to make sure discs are centered in caliper slots and not rubbing against calipers(before tightening eight nuts on fork bottom caps. Also make sure speedo gear is positioned correctly(not binding) and wheel spins freely before dropping wheel. It takes some fiddling around to put this front wheel back on. Minor adjustments are made by spinning the axle nut to adjust fork spacing.

Clutch slips more than it should. 1982 honda goldwing feels like motor is misfireing

If the motor seems like it is idling roughly/misfiring try putting on a set of new spark plug caps on. You can purchase NGK brand for about $5 each ($20). I drove my first used GL1000 home from the dealership and was regretting the purchase it was running so terribly. I had the spark plug caps in my pocket on the way home. I changed the caps in the driveway and could not believe the difference. It was a completely different motorcycle. The resisters in the caps often burn out. If you check the caps with a voltage meter they should read 5000 OHMS. Anything higher or lower replace the cap.
It is possible to replace the clutch plates with the motor in the frame. The clearance is very tight. First, check that the clutch cable is not binding. This can cause the clutch to slip each shift and it is a lot easier to replace. Next smell the oil to see if there are burnt clutch plates. It may be easier to try replacing just the clutch springs. If they are below 1.35 inches (34.2 mm) they are below tolerance and need to be replaced. New tolerance is 1.4 inches (35.5 mm).Use only OEM Honda springs. If you inspect the clutch plates and they are warped, scored, or burnt replace the whole set with OEM Honda parts. Replace the cable first, then the springs, then the plates.

Can you put a 1977 honda gl1000 carb on a 1979 gl1000

Yes it will run, but the 77 has different cams so the cam timing is different (more horsepower) The 79 is detuned and designed to burn leaner. In other words you may not see a performance gain and the mixture will probably too rich for the 79 (79 carbs are pollution controlled/which means harder to adjust yourself)

You guys told the guy with the goldwing clutch problem that the goldwing stator could be replace without pulling the engine. How?

Gl1500 and GL1800 have external alternators that can be easily changed. The GL1000, GL1100, and GL1200 you have to remove the motor completely or at least unbolt it and rotate it enough to get the rear cover off.

Hi, N_prissy_pin and the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty wiring to any safety switch.
2. Safety switches loose at the mounting point.
3. Faulty kickstand safety switch.
4. Failed kickstand safety switch circuit diode.
5. Stretched side stand spring.
6. Side stand not coming up far enough to disengage switch.
7. Faulty clutch lever safety switch.
8. Faulty neutral safety switch.
9. Clutch not properly adjusted.
10. Clutch plates sticking, forward lurch
