Randall: Just a quick note to let you know how well your Electric Fuel Pump works on my 76 GL 1000. Installation was simple due to your excellent color pictures and detailed instructions. It did lope a bit at idle with the old mechanical pump, now it’s nice and smooth. I even lowered my idle speed a small amount. A good run up and down I-85 was as fun as ever! I think the pump gives that side of the bike a bit of a high tech look. Thanks for your efforts Randall.”

“I implemented your off idle fix on my ’77 GL1000…amazing improvement! I ride my GL 1000 around the steep hills of San Francisco and the pilot air jet swap has improved immediate take off power in that crucial RPM band.”

Your CX Variants Float Bowl Gaskets are excellent Mr. Washington. My, new to me, 1983 CX650 Custom has had a slow gas leak for sometime now and I was not in the mood to pay a fix-it shop the rather large repair bill. So needless to say I completed it myself and the carb has taken on a new life, no more leaks. Thanks.”

Randakk, Just a short note this time. I received my set of Randakk’s Amazing Grips just before leaving on a 3,000 mile road trip. I stuffed my old grips in my saddlebag just in case your grips didn’t work out. The old ones went into a trash can at my first fuel stop. Your grips are GREAT ! Thanks for making them available.”

I recently got your handlebar grips and am very happy with them. It cracked-me-up on your site it said: ‘if you are a foam & chrome lover, these are NOT for you’ That’s all it took…when I bought my ’77 it was a full-dress Harley wanna-be, I managed to bring her back to original condition but had never bothered to get rid of the ‘foam & chrome’ grips, I’m glad to report that your Italian grips are a real improvement. Keep up the good work.”

“Randall, Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that I received the set of ‘Randakk’s Amazing Grips’ I ordered. They have so much ‘grip’ they didn’t want to come out of the plastic bag they were packed in! I installed them on my bike and they are great, I definitely got what I wanted and the road feel and vibration characteristics are spot on. Thanks, keep doing what you do so well.”

Hi Randakk, The grips are a really nice upgrade to the foam that the bike came with. This small change has helped transform the bike. Thanks!”

Hi Randall, I got the spark plug caps today (very fast shipment) and after I replaced them they took care of the jerky idle that bothered me so I’m quite happy. The idle is very smooth now so the older caps must have seen better days. Reading on the old caps were far above 5000 ohms. Got the carbs synchronized again and I’m near perfect ridding condition. Not bad for a 33 year old bike. Thank you for the fast shipment and great product.”

Just a note to thank you for the high quality items you have sold me. Not only are they of excellent quality, but they greatly improve the safety and rideability or both. The brake master cylinder upgrade is outstanding! I was getting a bit dicey about trusting 30+ year old brakes, but the new unit puts that concern to rest. The spin on oil filter adapter is convenient and greatly simplifies oil changes. The idea of an anti drainback valve is nice as well. I can’t say enough about the electric fuel pump. I was hesitant to order before you engineered a tip over shut off circuit, but once that appeared, I put my money down. It was worth it just for the quick start up after my winter hibernation! Good hat tip on the Posi Lock (Posi Tap) connector. I may not have written before, but your carburetor rebuild kits were similarly of superb quality. It was amazing how brittle the many o-rings in the carbs had become. Your directions were very good, and made the job effortless. All in all, I have never been disappointed with anything I have ordered from you, and make a great bike better. I look forward to buying from you again in the future. Oh, and I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that your Tech Tips articles are without peer, and the first place I turn for information on tuning and improving my bike (Naked Goldwings is my next stop…). Bravo!

Just a quick thanks for turning out such a fine product, Randy. Your spin on filter conversion for my GL1100i will make my filter changes that much easier—and it looks better, too! The instructions were clear and the list of compatible filters makes it a breeze to find one. Also, your site is invaluable.

Randakk, I finally had a minute to drop you an email about your amazing GL 1000 electric fuel pump. After putting over 500 miles on my GL1000’s new Randakk Electric Fuel pump, I can honestly say that your Electric Fuel pump was the best investment I’ve ever made on a motorcycle part. The difference it makes on starting is amazing. On average, two to three seconds and my bike is running smoothly on choke, even after sitting up for a couple of weeks. Thank you for providing a great fix for the GL1000 starting problem! P.S. Your petcock kit solved my recent fuel tank problem also……..your products truly ROCK!!

I just finished repairing my float pin using you excellent kit and instructions. You and Bob have done a great job of making this critical procedure a simple and accurate repair. The well thought out procedure, as well as the neceesary tools and jig, gave me the confidence that the end results would be what I needed. Thanks.
from TX on November 12th, 2010
Hello, Sorry to take up your time but I believe that when a product performs as outstanding as this has you need to hear about it! Want to give you a brief update on the oil conversion kit I purchased nearly 2 years ago for my SOHC 750 K8 drag bike. Fantastic is all I can say. Awesome part! This oil gets changed every 2-300 miles or even more often depending on how many passes and the temperature. Last run was September ’09 and I’ve ridden about 600 miles on the street this winter. Will begin bracket racing in Sealy, Texas this March, looking to dial in at 13.70, think I can stay pretty close to that time. Best so far was 12.78 @ 108mph. It is a real blast to run this piece of history, I always have more visitors in my pit than the Busa Boys ! Sorry to ramble, just wanted to thank you for a great product and a real time saver.

Yesterday I received your electric fuel pump which my wife had ordered for me, which was delivered very promptly, and installed by using your detailed instructions. I had installed several used fuel pumps ordered on e-bay, that leaked, I felt that I could install one blind folded. That prompted me to order your electric version. It is a very well designed fuel pump, and the hardware is top notch. Did I mention, works outstanding. I did know that mechanical fuel pumps were still being made, until I talked to Mr. Pistol Pete, after I had order your electric model. I am very pleased to have your electric pump. I feel it is a great addition to my 75 GL1000, GL1 1002206, Feb/75.
Thank you for your fine product.
from IL on June 12th, 2012
Received your new grips promptly, and installed them on my 75 GL1000, wow, what a different feel over the Honda stock grips, very impressive. I have to admit I was a little baffled regarding the install. I thought what does blowing air through the handlebar do with installing these grips, OH DAH, between the grip and handle, slick, and I was able to try them out immediately. Thank you another very good product, keep up the good work for us amateurs.
from TN on August 7th, 2012
After receiving the diaphragms, I took them to Ken’s Cycle Center in Gray, TN along with the recommended Zap-A-Gap adhesive.
They told me the installation went fine with your instructions for assembly. My wing runs like a champ again! Thanks for providing a great service and a superb product as well.”
from Norway on November 28th, 2012
Thank you for the excellent parts for my restoration project a Honda CB1100f 1983 model.
Both carburetor parts, book and oil filter adapter was excellent just as before. I am so pleased the way you pack the parts, separated function by function make it so easy for me recognizing where to use the different parts as an amateur. And I love you consideration for me, just a small customer from Norway.
A great thanks to you and a small family company – Krangnes Motor located in Trondheim, Norway. They supported me with used parts and recommendations.
I am so happy to say that I look at you both not just as good suppliers, but enthusiasts for me as a restorer. I’m now done with carburetor and engine restoration, and I am very happy with the result.

What greater compliment can I make – I’m a Randakk addict. If he can supply it then I’m going to get it. All I need him to provide next is a 97 jet so I can impliment the off idle fix without having to drill my own jets!
from Auburn, NY on June 11th, 2013
I found your site via a question I posted over at goldwindocs.com [ http://goldwingdocs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=17343 ] and one of the guys posted a link to your product [ http://randakks.com/products/randakks-upgraded-front-master-cylinder ]
I placed my order, and:
-I received my order in a timely fashion. You shipped within 45minutes. Wow.
-The order was complete and properly protected from damage,
-The front brake master cylinder was easy to install and works perfectly
-But most of all, I wanted to let you know that your product description on your website was wonderful! It made me understand that I wanted more than a replacement part for my ’82 GL1100 Goldwing, I wanted to improve on the original. And then you (the guy that wrote that, anyway) made me understand that THIS was the improvement, and detailed why it is so. I’ve only accrued less than 20miles since I installed it, but DANG! this is a nice brake system. I like it. I like it a LOT! Thank you.
from Natick, MA on July 19th, 2013
Randall: I recently installed a Super Brace on my ’81 Interstate & your modest claims notwithstanding, experienced a dramatic improvement in handling. There’s a planted feel that was never there before, & to anyone who’s on the fence, all I can say is spend the dough & feel the joy! Thanks for products that pass the test for integrity every time.

Just got an ’81 CB900C and it needs the petcock seal. The guys over on the cb750c.com board pointed me to Randakk’s and in less then 48 hours I have my seal. Thanks for the very prompt service. I look forward to doing business again.

from Buffalo, NY on March 23rd, 2015
Bought the GL1000 fuel filter and all we can say if any buy anything else they are wasting their money. This is top notch in manufactured quality and in being able to service. Also aquired the 7/8″ handle grips and they are are as good as described, very tacky and comfortable. Am really in Ontario, Canada but no option to chose this location.

I ride a GL1100 Goldwing Ive delt with Randaaks cycle shack a few times. First i tried a new fuel filter for my 1100. What a great product!! You can clean and reuse the filter over and over saving you money. After that I purchased a new Master Cylinder and stainless brake cables. WOW!!!! What a product!!! Best investment Ive ever made!! After installing the cables and new master cylinder I couldn’t believe the braking power i get now!! Anyone whos ever owned a old wing knows how hard it is to brake especially in the heat. Rubber hose swell decreasing your braking power.scary thought when your cruising around town! I highly recommend Randaaks products. The man knows what us vintage Goldwing riders need!! Im in Edmonton Alberta Canada

Bought a 82′ Goldwing that came with cheap carb rebuild kits. One of the air mixture screws was bent and the rubber gaskets weren’t thick enough. Used the old oem screws and ordered what I needed from Randakk’s. Shipped VERY quickly and priced great. Couldn’t be happier.
