I have a 2008 Goldwing and I don't have a owners manual. Can anyone assist me in telling me how to change the radiator fluid? By the way I am a new comer to Goldwing ownership and to this forum. Thanks in advance, Airglider

Airglider, welcome to the board and congrats on the new ride. Changing the coolant is fairly straight forward but it is helpful to know a little about disassembling the wing.

A member here, Fred H., has an entertainment video series (18 DVDs I think) that walks through most if not all of the stuff you'll likely need to do.

You can get the videos here:

Also, where about are you located? Knowing that a member might step forward and offer assistance.

There is also information here: http://www.pbase.com/fredharmon/coolant
courtesy of Fred H., as well, that will be helpful.

Good luck.

Airglider, I grew up just down I-15 from you in Logan Utah.

Fred Harmon's video would probably be enough to help ypu thru this, and especially just reassure you that it's not that tough. It's always easier to do something if you can watch it done first. But think about getting a real shop manual when you can...our board sponsor Honda Direct Line has them at a decent price. Even though I don't do that much serious work, I have already found that the combination of Fred's videos and the real manual is the best posssible aid to problem solving and repairs.

Coolant Change is on disk 9 of the 18 disk set, which is worth every penny. But HDL also has the DVD set and they are advertising a 10% off sale right now for the July 4th holiday. http://www.directlineparts.com/product.asp?pid=9876&str=4

This is a link to reviews of the video and has a link to Fred's sales site for the videos too.

Click on the search link then do the advanced search and you should see a lot of threads. You have to remove the right front pocket to access the radiator cap. I can't remember if you have to remove the cowl to get to the drain plug or not.
