Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of Honda GL1800 Goldwing:
- Fuel consumption (fuel economy) measured in L/100km or MPG (miles per gallon) shows how many liters of fuel the motorcycle burns for a 100km rum and respectively how many miles it can run with one gallon of fuel. In the average case Honda GL1800 Goldwing will burn 5.90 liters on every 100km of your trip. That is based on the technical specifications of the motorcycle and may vary depending on several factors as style of riding, temperature, road condition etc. As per the MPG number it will run for 39.9 miles while burning one gallon of fuel. As we already know its fuel efficiency and fuel tank capacity we can easily calculate that if the tank is full we can ride it 263 miles till we run out of gas. However we better not try it because the gas stations are never where we desperately need them to be.
- 1832 cc engine size (displacement) - this is the total volume enclosed in the movement of all pistons in the engine cylinders from their bottom to their top position in a stroke. Bigger displacement volume usually means more powerful motorcycle engine and less miles per gallon. The engine displacement is measured in cubic centimeters (cc) or liters (l) and for Honda GL1800 Goldwing it is 1832 cc as per the specifications above.
- 125 mm ground clearance is the shortest distance measured from the ground to the chassis of GL1800 Goldwing. Variations in ground clearance measures represent a trade-off between practicality and handling of a bike.Bore and stroke of Honda GL1800 Goldwing engine
- 74x71 bore and stroke - bore is indeed the size of the piston presented by its diameter and stroke is the depth of the piston measured from top to bottom. The stroke value actually represents the distance that the piston undergo in one stroke. The bore diameter of Honda GL1800 Goldwing is 74 mm and the stroke length is 71 mm as per its technical specification. As per the parameters of this Honda engine the measure of the bore is bigger than the stroke which means that GL1800 Goldwing has the so called short stroke engine.
- Compression ratio 9.8:1 of a motorcycle engine is the ratio of the volume of the combustion chamber when the piston is at the bottom of the stoke and its volume when the piston is at the top of the stroke. Motorcycles with higher compression ratio may be recommended to use premium fuel only in order to avoid engine knocking. With internal combustion engines the higher compression ratio allows higher efficiency because the combustion temperature is reached with less fuel.
- Shaft final drive: Depending on the purpose of the motorcycle and its characteristics usually one among the three possible final drive options is preferred. On sport bikes the chain drive is preferred while most cruisers and touring bikes tend to be designed with belt or shaft drive. All three variations of final drive have been used for a very long time and each of them has proved to be successful one. The final drive of Honda GL1800 Goldwing is shaft.
shaft final driveMainly used with power cruisers and touring bikes, the shaft drives provide smooth way to deliver power to the rear wheel. Shaft drives are quiet, clean and don't really need much care, except changing their oil after gaining certain amount of miles on the odometer. On the other had they are the most expensive among the three options and add weight to the motorcycle. Also it is a fact that some minor power is lost because of the moving gears implemented in their design.
- Liquid cooling: the constant cooling of the motorcycle engine is mandatory for its efficiency and durability. While air cooled bikes are better cooled while in motion, the liquid cooled motorcycles have pumps, radiators and fans to deal with the heat even at idle speed.Turn signals replacement of Honda GL1800 Goldwing
- Replacing Honda GL1800 Goldwing turn signals is an easy job and commonly considered a do it yourself project. Reconnecting the motorcycle turn signals cables would not be a problem as these wires are generally color coded. In the case of box connection all you have to do is clip off both ends (the male and female). There should not be any confusion connecting the new Honda GL1800 Goldwing turn signals after they are placed since the wires have been properly marked.Bike cover for Honda GL1800 Goldwing
When choosing a motorcycle cover the dimensions of the Honda GL1800 Goldwing should be taken into consideration. Any aftermarket accessories that affect the dimensions of the bike should be considered. The cover length, width and height might need to be bigger if saddle bags, fairings or backrest have been installed on the motorcycle.
