    started a topic Goldwing Dead in the Water.

    Goldwing Dead in the Water.

    Everything was running great.Then I checked my oil and it was 1.2 ounces low.
    I added a 1/2 quart of Left Hand Blinker Fluid to the Fuse box, and it started right up.

    Took it our for 300 mile ride and it purr's like a new bike again.


    I was worried I would have to take the mufflers off for bearing service.

    Taking all the air out of the tires didn't effect the sound??

    Fortunately, When I turned on the Wiper,The mufflers were spinning smoothly.


    I love a happy ending.

    Good point....

    Hey you gotta use some restraint when running the 110. I didn't mean run it in the tires. Richard that's a bizarre story. I believe it though. If it's on the intraweb it has to be true.

    I know a guy who knows a guy whose neighbor's wife's 2nd cousin twice removed ran some 110 octane racing fuel in his rear dark side tire and the bike ran so well, he did a burnout and the tire exploded then the Goldwing crashed and burned leaving the guy in terrible pain for the next 15-1/2 minutes and a disfigured appearance every day except for the 2nd Tuesday of each week.

    Richard. Running only 93 Octane is for the slow guys.

    I run Sunoco 110 Octane, Aircraft/Racing fuel in my summer tires. That's the only way to Fly!.

    Mine was running a bit "rough" until I rolled it outside and applied a nitrogen mix to the air cleaner. All better now.

    Hmmm...1.2 oz. low on oil is kind of worrisome. Better make sure your dipstick is calibrated correctly. There is a procedure for that at www.analwinger.com.
