I am the proud owner of a 86 interstate. :YMAPPLAUSE: Once I get the fuel pump and starter replaced I am off and riding \:d/ As a new wing owner I am looking forward to learning this machine! I been riding motorcycles for over 40 years and have owned over twenty of them. Thanks for reading ACE

Thanks for the welcome! As a new wing owner I am afraid I have more questions than answers. My other scooters were not near as complex as the goldwing but as I have aged I found the COMFORT of the ride is worth the headaches of leaning my around this machine. I'm a simple ol' shade tree mechanic that has gained most of my knowledge by trial and error :lol:

If this starter replacement dont work then I will take you up on that offer. The coffee offer is a great Idea. I have a motorcycle website for Sw. Missouri riders we are a bunch of guys and gals that love to ride but are forced to work! I wont post the site address here unless it's ok with the admin. If you like I will pm you my phone number and we can work out a time to meet. ACE aka John

my starter went out on me the same way as yours, drove me nuts it was a new starter less then 800 miles on it. a little investigation i found that the positive wire where in entered the housing was rubbing the armature and shorting it out the place i bought it from replaced it for me and no problems with it. this site is great alot of helpful people here.
