Lil Red has shim in cup valve adjustment and only needs to be checked at 35,000 miles, No need to change the timeing belt, It has a chain. Computer is faster at changeing mixture with change of alt. I love this bike.

Very true and 2012 GW= approx. 25k and my pristine 95 Aspencade=3.5k. Timing belts I can afford, a new GW I cannot. Glad you afford the new ones.

Who amongst us cannot refer to the days we filed the distributor points with fond memories ?

Ah yes, multi-feeler guage in the tool pouch, strips of sandpaper, hay-wire, the stuff of fond memories. Thankfully they are just memories now!

Most of my vehicles have had electronic ignition and except for one sled, one car and my 83 shadow(which I still have) all have been fuel injected

i don't understand why honda went with bucket and shim's for the valve adjustment on the 1800 wings, seem like a step in the wrong direction

Does the 1800 have a solid or hydrolic lifter camshaft? The solid cam would explain needed adjustments.

I remember the old points, one of GM's best inventions was HEI.

I still have my hand in it regarding points and condensers with my 57 Chevy. I love the old simple mechanics!!! :)

the old 4 cylinder nighthawks reved up to 9500 rpm and had hyd lifters there is no reason an 1800 wing couldn't have hyd lifters

I rode a 95 aspy and a vtx. Good bike but Lil Red is my retirement bike. It will out last me. Add a lietime of bike mechanics, plenty of time and a good shop man. as well as a well stocked tool box and you have a retirement program.

You're a blessed man, a new Wing, a new move to Colorado (my favorite state) and a good woman. Life doesn't get much better than that. :D
