1) The front of my 1990 Goldwing dives when I shift or stop. When I had an SE it had a place to add air but on this 1990 model it does not. Any suggestions?
2) I have a slight hesitation then it goes into a heavy throttle. It's gonna kill me one day in an intersection. I cleaned out the jets with commercial cleaner but it still does it. Also when it does this it slaps the transmission & it sounds like a loose chain (I know there isn't a chain) or a bad ujoint.
3) I need to be in contact with someone that knows about the radio & its wiring.

Thanks in advance for your help.

hello and welcome to GWOF snowhawk. you could change the fluid , springs or both in the forks. carbs may need to be synced if they are clean and hopfully someone can answer the radio question

Probably need the front frok fluid changed and put progressive springs in while your at it.

Early 1500's had a hesitation problem, put a 4 degree trigger wheel on it and that will advance the timing and fix the problem.

Sierra electronice is the best for the radio on the Gold Wing.

Snow, welcome to the board. You did not say how many miles are on your Wing, but I would think that if the springs were not changed out that a 1990 would be a good candidate for a new set of springs. Progressive are great replacments for your Wing.

Good luck and ride safe.

Thanks for all the help so far people & thanks for the welcome comment.
I believe that I am going to change out the springs myself because the seals are OK at this time.

What the heck is a 4° trigger wheel?
I should mention that the ONLY time I have problems is between 8 & 12 on the tac.

As far as the radio goes I have found a company that has the back speakers and the wiring for the radio so I'll see if that takes care of all my questions once I install it.

Again thanks for welcoming me aboard.
