I've had the bike a week now. Never worked on a wing at all before. I wanted to install the autocom with bike-to-bike, mp3, ..etc. and get power to my gps.

Where to get 12v power? used the search feature- BOOM there it is under the left fairing pocket.
How to remove the seat? search - BOOM there it is, remove rear handrail bolts, lift back and up.
How to get those crazy fairing pocket liners out? search -BOOM there it is, press the dot in the middle of the rivit.
How to raise the upper shelf to run wires? search - BOOM there it is, remove the fairing strips, bolts, and two nuts on the bottom rear.

Got it all done in about an hour. Almost like I knew what I was doing. :) All back together and working fine.

But I did order Harmons DVD's today anyway and will be ordering the service manual soon. :)

Anyway, having a resource like this makes having the bike a lot more fun.

Just wanted to say thanks.

They don't get any better than Hedo and the Dawg.

FYI, the left fairing pocket 12V accessory (red) socket to hook up a plug for your mp3, gps, etc. is only a 5 amp fuse and the wire is only for a 5 amp fuse. So if you are popping this fuse, you will have to run a separate higher gauge stranded wire line with a bigger in line fuse and ground wire from the battery.

You will be glad you purchsed Fred's DVD set and the service manual. Makes working on the bike easier and both will save you $. Have fun.

Ok, now I'm starting to wonder about this board. :)
Welcome to the board. Yu ain't seen nuttin yet... Wait until you meet the bunch from Atlanta. They like to ride and are headed up by a guy by the name of TOYO... Now he is the one to watch out fer... :wink: :wink:

Oh I forgot... You will have to meet the bunch from the Dayton, Ohio area. They are headed up by the POLECAT.... Now there is a real stinker there.. :wink: :wink:

I have been on this board for three years and I will have to say that 99.9% of the people here are all good. It is always fun to meet another new member. Sometimes we do not all agree on somehting but that is what life is partially made up of.

Oooooo. Another local.

We're riding tomorrow; are you coming?
Locally, we're meeting at the BP station in the Walmart parking lot at exit 20 on 575 at 0730. We're taking a few pig trails to Blairesville then 76 over to Clayton, meet up with the other rebels, then we start the ride.
I would imagine we'll have quite a good time; we're fun people. :wink:

All kidding aside, this board is invaluble to any Goldwing owner. I purchased my bike in Feburary 2006 and it was just a plain virgin bike. I can not say how much I have learned about all aspects of maintenance and care for my 2004. Between this board, Fred's videos and paying Hal's salary for a year (on Assc and chrome) I have the a ultimate bike to be proud of and a great group of guys that I can count on for priceless advise. Thanks to all that have helped.
