SOURCE: brushes in starter

Yes. It can be done. The starter motor is located outside the engine block so it should be easy to take it out. from there, you may disassemble the starter motor and replace the carbon brush as you wish.

SOURCE: 1983 goldwing 1100 hard to start

Did the old battery not have this problem? Need more of a description of the problem though.

Does the battery turn the motor over acceptably, and it just won't fire? Or does it seem to lack the current to turn the motor over?

For potential battery conditions, check voltage at battery, then check voltage at starter--if you lose too much, check the yellow triple wire connector right by the battery for corrosions/breaks, etc. Many have had trouble with this little connector set and most opt to replace the connector completely with a solid hard wiring.

There are many possibles on hard starts- if a physical problem, like the battery appears to not have enough power, make sure you've got good oil (to reduce friction of the innards, uses less power to crank). Also, make sure there's not a build up of fuel in a cylinder that causes a HYDRO LOCK--making it almost impossible for the starter to turn the motor over.

Start from NEUTRAL, not from geared with clutch lever held in--

SOURCE: 83 goldwing gsl 1100 where do we check oil

As stated in the previous reply, it has a sight glass. The sight glass is on the right side of the case, near the fill hole. If looking at the fill hole, look just below it and to the right about 2 inches. You may need to use a small flat blade screwdriver to turn the wiper arm for the glass, so that it cleans it off for a better view.

SOURCE: We removed starter from a 1983 Honda Goldwing

the starter is the tensioner, there is an internal besides that as well. This is one of the most difficult out there that is for sure. You may have to rotate the engine or starter gear subtly to get everything to line up. Let me know if you have any other concerns.

My 93 goldwing has no air shock valve for adjusting air pressure.would my bike have oil dampened front shocks a nd how do i service them if they are oil dampened.a freind told me they could be oil...


Actually all shocks are oil dampened - the air pressure just increases the dampening effect of the oil. In all Goldwings the front shocks air pressure is adjustable and supposed to be 6 psi.
If you no longer have the air ports on the shocks then something is very wrong with this bike - the front fork has been modified, the shocks have been replaced with non genuine parts. Have the bike inspected by a Honda certified repair shop immediately.

What kind of oil should i use for a 1999 goldwing?


I recommend Amsoil 10W40 motorcycle oil. A good 10W40 motorcyle oil is what is okay by the manual.

What non synthetic oil is best for the GL 1800 Goldwing? What oil filter other than Honda brand.


Okay I don't understand why on this earth would you not want to use a synthetic oil in your GL1800. Synthetic oils have proven themselves for longevity, superior performance and the list goes on. You are riding one of the best if not the best performance touring motorcycle in the world why destroy it with an off brand filter and petroleum based oils? Sorry can't help you with a "best" non synthetic oil or filter for your Goldwing.

Will Castrol Power RS Racing 4T synthetic oil do well in my 1983 Honda Goldwing 1100 with 109kmi.


Synthetics work great in Goldwings, but it does need to be a motorcycle oil for wet clutch's. Look for the JASO MA rating for Japanese engines on the bottle. Do not use oils that say ENERGY CONSERVING on the label, they will shorten the life of the gears and wet clutch.

I need to know what kind of oil to use for a Honda motorcycle.


You need an SE oil, Wal Mart used and maybe still does sell a motorcycle oil (not their brand). You probably will need 30 weight or a multi viscosity (which I use 20-50). Buy a good oil, maybe a synthetic with that rating. Rear final takes 90 weight in most instances except cold weather. A parts house or bike shop will sell the right oil. Just buy the best oil you can, and keep it changed frequently & the wing will just about go forever, Hope this helps you with your scoot, Rick
