Hey 3rdgear, thanks for the reply, im already a member of the goldwingdocs website. theres no "how-to" articles on removing the ignition switch, but i've found out on my own. its the same way as removing the ignition switch on a GL1100. its much easier to remove it with the front fairing off the bike, otherwise you need a 36" 1/4" drive extension with a 10mm socket and go up from under the fairing which makes it kinda difficult if your trying to hold the extension just right to get the socket on the bolt head.
