Re: Photo Tag ---Anyone want to play?

I'm really happy to see this game rolling, but it's only been 4 weeks since my replacement hip surgery, and is going to be at least 2 more months before I can ride (and play here) again, so for now we have to rely on someone else to do the job. I'll keep an eye on you!!!

Re: 2000 GL1500 Carb won't stay in sync

You can try this: remove the air filter and with motor running check closely if when accelerating both vacuum pistons move at unison. If not you may have the outer edge of diaphragm not seated correctly into the grove. Don't ask how I know. Not sure about getting out of sync, but it will cause malfu...

Re: No starter! Where do I look next?

That's the one, Relay "B". It doesn't get power until relay "A" is switched ON. Again, since you hear no clcks at all, start at the ign. fuse

It may vary, it's my '93 BTW I suppose that you jumped Started Relay "B", located by the started, right? power gets there from relay "A", located front to the battery. That's way you jumpe...

Re: 1978 GL1000 gas mileage

What should the gas mileage be for this bike? I feel like it uses more than it should as well as it smells a bit gassy! It has not yet been synced since the carb rebuild .

Re: ALTERNATOR/BATTERY HEALTH

Long ago I started by building this simple voltalert, later on added digital voltmeter which about 1" x 5/8 and reads 13.6 V above 1500 rpm. One year ago this showed voltage dropping to 11.8V, so I pulled headlights fuse out and got home safe. The alternator was shot, when replacing it I interrupt t...

Re: 1988 gl1500 Fuel Cap Difference?

I knew that I had this info, and here is:
The tube from gas cap goes to the canister, which is only in Cal models, so it wont hurt anything to put a regular gas cap, unless you get caught in Ca.

Re: 1988 gl1500 Fuel Cap Difference?

Can you see gas on the little pan below gas cap?? , but I believe your problem is with the petcock valve. I also have a Cal model with the gas cap and center off hose, which goes way below the motor, shouldn't smell gas from there.
