Re: Leaks after winter storage

Your water pump seal has failed. That little hole is called the "telltale hole" or "weep hole" and is designed to allow the coolant to leak out instead of contaminating your crankcase oil.

You should have a look through this: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=275

Re: Digital Gauges & 7V regulator

Hello All, I'm putting an acewell digital gauge on my 75 GL1000 and currently hooking it up to the temp and fuel gauges. The acewell specifies only a resistance 10-1000r for each sensor. From what I can tell, the 7v regulator is to power the stock gauges to read the same resistance. Therefore, I be...

Re: Easy way to open side marker light?

If they are the same as the rear lenses, then the (somewhat fragile and brittle) lens part is glued to the (softer, ABS) back piece with a thermoplastic glue. Heating it up (gently) with a heat gun or strong hairdryer turns the glue to mush, and the lens can be pulled apart from the base. It's a lon...

It's probably a good idea for everyone else to search the site and find how and where to strap down your ride if the need should ever arise.

This guy also had the kickstand down. Good idea?
Absolutely not! You want the bike's suspension to absorb bumps and impacts. Instead, the kickstand transmits them directly into the frame. You should inspect the kickstand and frame around the kickstand for damage or cracking.

Re: Scary towing experience

Connecting the front wheel to the winch is a really bad idea. This puts major stress on the front forks in a manner they were not designed to handle. It binds up the front suspension and can cause wear and damage to the forks and/or bushings. Strapping it down with ratchet straps is correct. If they...

Yes it does, and it also doesn't show that it is from the oil pump, because it is not. You can see from the diagram that it flows from that shelf just by gravity.

Re: I AM INSTALLING NEW RADIATORS....NEW ONE IS DIFFERENT

That hose nipple existed on the right radiator of GL1500's from 1988 to 1991, the radiator part number was 19010-MN5-003:





For 1992-2000 model year bikes, it was deleted, and the right radiator part number became 19010-MAM-003:





That's the radiator you have.

Yes, both lights are on for low and high beam. If one is not on, then the filament in that bulb is likely blown.

The output portion of the transmission is lubricated by oil from the oil pump, which movies oil through the middle of the shafts, to provide an oil bearing for the gears on the shaft.
