  1. Have you already checked to make sure nothing elese is just seeping by that spot, such as a fuel leak? I have a fuel leak from one of the the carbs that comes down at pretty much the same spot. I stripped the bike down to parade rest to verify so you may need to do the same thing.
  2. Did anyone mention speed bleeders? I use these, makes it real easy. Check to make sure you get the right size for your particullar bike. https://www.amazon.com/Motion-Pro-08-0482-Mini-Bleeder/dp/B0077QSGFG/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=Speed+Bleeder+motion+pro&qid=1603981288&sr=8-5
  3. Hopefully I will have some time this weekend to dig in to it, connections have gotten me into trouble before.
  4. @Patch Me wrong never, well maybe never, you know I might be wrong about that. I had thought the 99-13 were the same and have been buying parts under that assumption, but you know what assuming does to you.
  5. Nice to have you join us Brad, I also like to ride motorcycles and eat.
  6. Welcome to the group, looks like fun. As others said you may wind up spending more than you could make on it, however you will not know that till you dig into it. The bikes where the same for all of the model years and with few exceptions so parts are pretty much available new or used. Did not see where you are located, some great folks in the group and some old grumpy ones like myself who would be glad to stop by and give our two cents worth.
  7. Thanks for the recommendation on the connector; I will start with the battery especially since it is easier to get to than the connector is. If not I guess, I will have some “fun” taking off plastic.
  8. Just tried to start it and got an error code of 19 which says it is the crankshaft position sensor, the part is only $50, but with the Goldwing I am sure it is not easy to get to.
  9. I decided to ride the Goldwing to work today instead of the Venture, not a wise move. When I went to leave the Goldwing turned over but would not start, however it push started just fine. I rode home and the bike has started every time since. I had a similar issue a year ago but all you had to do was put it in gear and nudge the engine a little then hit the start button and it would fire right up. I attributed the issue last year to the batteries age but not sure now, the battery is only a year old and I actually had to get someone to help me push it to get it started. Any clues as to what the issue is? 2012 GL1800 35K.
  10. I have seen some of your crashes.
  11. Thank you sir for your hard work.
  12. I tried to call him a while back and his number was disconnected glad to hear he is doing well. I think Asheville 16 was the last time I saw him.
  13. Every once in awhile I stay up that late, but us old folks can't always keep up with those young whipper snappers.
  14. Sounds very familiar, glad no permenant damage was done. My wife put a sign on the door to the garage that says "Beware of Flying Tools" if that tells you anything.
  15. Thoughts and prayers for the family and friends.

    I am good with 84, maybe the squirell will come after you
  18. I don't understand. Why did he not go? :think:
  19. Looks like it must have offended someone Youtube pulled it.
  20. Glad it was just a close call and you two are ok. The hunters run them with dogs around here and usally straight into the road followed by the dogs.
  21. Stephen, hope have been able to find a solution. Can you just switch out the boom or the mic element? I did notice your location and although it is a year off I thought I would let you know we have a ride every other year at Vogel State Park just north of you every other year and the next one will be 11-15 August 2021 if you might be interested. Here is the link to the current discussion about it https://www.venturerider.org/forum/showthread.php?146872-Vogel-2021
