Re: 1500 leaks

I had something similar happen to my 88 when I bought it. Being that old you have to expect some of the rubber or neoprene parts to start to corrode. That's what happened to the hose fitting that fits onto the top of the coolant reserve tank. It had small cracks in it and caused overflow through the...

Re: rear air suspension

Under the left side cover, just in front of the saddlebag, is the fuse and relay box. Pull the cover for the fuses and it should be marked inside of the cover the position for the 'air pump' fuse. On mine it's #6 down from the top. It should be a 10 amp fuse. On the relays the air pump relay is #5. ...

Re: 93 gl 1500 will not fire

I'm presuming you're having problems getting the engine to start and that you've checked to verify that the spark plugs have spark. In many cases a weak/old battery can be the cause. Even though the engine will turn over with the starter a weak battery won't have enough voltage to turn over the star...

Re: noise in the speedometer with vibration 1996 SE

There's not that much that it could be...
the drive gear in the front wheel, the cable, or the speedometer. If it's not the first 2 then it must be the 3rd thing.

Re: Progressive Suspension on 92 GL1500

The most common places for air to leak are at the hose at the top of the rear shock and the shock seal. Check to see if you have any fluid dripping out at the bottom of the shock boot. You might have to replace the shock seal or have it replaced if it's leaking. If you do it make sure to check out t...

Re: 5 din problem....

What kind of headset do you have? Did it come with the helmet? Are you absolutely sure it's for a Honda? Sounds like it could be for a Harley... I don't think the pins are the same as for a Honda which would explain why the intercom won't work. Unless you've got a problem with the radio/intercom I'd...

Re: 1500 goldwing

Ya want the bad news??? or the really bad news??? The bad news is after 8 years it's a pretty good bet that the carbs will have to be pulled and rebuilt. A service manual would be a good purchase before tearing them apart. Be sure to remove all the diaphragms before you soak or clean them. Don't for...

Re: Burnt smell

The fluid in the breather container usually has NASTY smell. Depending on where you drive (wet conditions will increase the amount of fluid in the container) you might have to drain it more often than the manual calls for. At this point, with the information you supplied, I'd say everything is normal.
