Just got my 1984 Goldwing running again after settting up for 2 years.I am so glad to get my goldwing running again. I had become very discouraged after having a few major issues come up with my
1984 Goldwing. The first thing was the stator went bad and I was
told the motor would have to be removed to put a new stator on.
I decided to go with a external generator.Then the next thing was
my starter went bad and I was told by my local Honda shop that I
would have to replace the starter,starter clutch and chain and they would have to remove the motor and it would cost $2000 plus.

I became very discouraged and felt it was not worth fixing. I bought
a Honda Shadow 1100 and rode it for 2 years. I enjoyed it very much but it did not replace my love of riding my Goldwing.

I decicded to give a local guy a shot at fixing it that worked out of his
house. He put the starter on and said the starter clutch and chain were still good and recalibrated my carburators for $260.

I driven it about 500 miles and it seams to be running great!

It is so nice to be riding my Goldwing again!:flyingpig:
I look forward to sharing stories with many of you in the future!

Smooth Thunder

Give yourself a pat on the back for me, but not while riding.

Good on you, Thunder. If a doctor says you have two weeks to live, get a second opinion. If the second doctor says you have two weeks to live, get a third opinion. The first two doctors may have graduated from the same school.
