I was wondering if anyone knows if the aftermarket ign.trigger wheel that advances the spark 6 degrees on the 1500 Goldwing works. It claims help fuel economy. Does anyone have one installed on their 1500? Can you still use reg.gas? Please let me know if you have any information.

I installed the 4 degree trigger wheel on my Goldwing 1500. My gas mileage improved a minimum of 2 mpg. Acceleration was noticeably better at all speeds. I used premium gas before and after the installation.

I have a 1990 goldwing aslencade with only 22,000 miles. About a year or 100 miles ago it started spitting and coughing when I tried to take off. Honda shop said they rebuilt the carb. two times checked fuel out put tuned it etc. $1300,00. The same. The only way it will take off is to keep giving it more and more gas or letting in on the clutch and reving it excessive. Once I am going, it runs fine. Someone sujggested adding a 4 inch trigger wheel. Anyone ever had this problem and corrected it with the above. Jim
