1984 Yamaha Venture Squealing somewhere towards the front end of the bike.

Unhook the speedo cable at the wheel and zip tie it up somewhere safe so the cable doesn't fall out of the sheath, and test ride. If the squeal doesn't go away it's the speedometer gear or something else at the wheel. If it does go away the bearings in the speedo itself are drying out. You'd then have to pull the cluster, fit a pipe cap with a grease zerk threaded to it onto the back of the speedo, and grease with appropriate bearing grease which I believe is moly grease.

I have a 1984 fiero an when I took my stereo out I went to go turn my dash lights on and now they dont turn on why?

often circuits are run in series through the wiring harness, so a loop is created in the connections to continue to other things, In My Malibu I had to keep my original radio in the trunk wired up due to the computer and all the other stuff the radio had when replacing my factory radio with a new one

We are looking at an 1984 Honda espencade goldwing bike to buy. My husband wanted to now what kind of problems (if any) with the alternator?? Also, how often do you replace the alternator?? THANKS DEE

The Alternators on those models were the "weak link" in an otherwise pretty stoutly built and durable motorcycle. However certain Aspencade models had a digital dash and all electronics run through this dash module, if it burns it's horrendously expensive to replace or repair a lot more then the alternator.

Going back to the alternator there are aftermarket units available that are double the life expectancy of the stock or "OEM" units so once replace the alternator problem shouldn't be a concern.

The "other" weak link is the timing belts which should be replaced every 50 thousand miles, don't mess with this if they are in doubt replace 'em cause is one brakes while the engine is say at highway speed the engine will be destroyed.

My personal feeling about the Goldwing models before the GL1500 were that these old "Classics" are the best "less a few" minor problems Motorcycle that Honda produced. Today there is just way to much "junk" on a Goldwing motorcycle. They weigh a 1/2 ton, sit to tall for short **** riders, wobble and need suspension modifications that Honda doesn't warrant and cost more then a good truck.

Have a great day

Front or rear? Rear is probably center bearing. Fornt is front tub wheel or glide worn out. If noise is in front remove front and inspect.

96 goldwing radio no volume

Had the same problem, there is a fuse on the left side, way down under all that stuff, it is just a line fuse to the radio, it has blown, it is not in the book, and it hides real good. Drove us nuts looking for it. And when we were ready to buy a new radio, we found the fuse. Took 8 hours to totally dismantle bike to find it. Will take you 10 minutes, good luck.
