To All WI gl1800 Riders.....

Does any one have a good mechanic that they trust who works on GL1800s on a regulare basis and who can tear apart an engine, transmission, clutch in the state of WI?

Not that I don't trust my dealer...but I just don't think they have the experience on handling major repairs.

I don't have any major problems, but the bike is just a year old and has 31,000 miles thus in another year I might have 60,000 miles and might need a mechanic.

Thanks

I have 248,000 on my 02 and the engine and transmission have never been apart. I know there are many that have more with no problems. Just ride it and maintain it and the engine and trans will probably go 500,000 miles

I trust and like "Mark" at ProMotor Sports in Fond Du Lac.

His been around goldwings most of his life, and rides a older Goldwing, a GL1500 I believe.
Mark's wife Diana is the service writter at the dealership.

Nice People.

Isn't the first 200,000 miles the engine break in period? If you keep up with normal maintenance it will take you a long time to wear out the bike.

Yes I work on bikes. :eek:4: If you need something you can call.
These bikes were made for the long haul. The test is to see if you can wear it out.:yes1:
