Fuel pump experience

For alittle over a year I have what I thought was carb problems. I rebuilt them and it was better but rough idle and would kill, lack of power, hard starting, but still ran. I played with the carbs , tried different plugs, and finally this year I rebuilt them again paying more attention to detail. I...

Re: Speed Warning Module

At high speed lets say 40mph, turn your turn signal on, it will make a wierd noise. As you slow down it will change to the clicking noise.

Re: Surging idle

I would also say carb sync. Mine did the same thing along with occasional backfire. I had one carb out of sync when i put the vacuum gauges on. You should also notice a miss on that bank.

Re: 1979 won't run, carbs are good, points are good stator?

Go to the basics; 1. Do you have gas?? (take the top of the air cleaner off. Do you see any gas in the plentuim?? If not, dump alittle in there and see if it fires.) (Now if it is full of gas and flooding out, you will see gas in the plentuim, also your plugs will be wet. Try shuting off the gas val...

Re: Correct resistance for ignition parts?

The older caps had a screw inside the cap I was able to take out. With showing all the same resistance makes me wonder if your tester works correctly, or on the wrong setting. Maybe bad batteries? With my unit it reqiures batteries for that function.

Re: Correct resistance for ignition parts?

when i check my 79 this is what i got, the parts were each tested alone. I tried a different coil hoping to be able to change out the wires. It only had 1/2ohm resistant. The bike would not even start. So decided to check the stock coil, it was 2ohms, the Honda stock resistor, 3 ohms, and the glass ...

Re: Fuel in Air Chamber or Plenum Chamber

stuck floats, had the same exact problem. Be careful, loosen the floats on the pins before driving them out. Then polish the pins and I used a torch tip cleaner for the hinges.

Re: 1976 GL1000 ceased. Anything to do?

do not over do it and bend a rod, I have also used a dowl rod and stuck thru the plug hole and gave it mild taps hoping to loosen it alittle.

NGK Plug boot

The reason I decided to change coils, wires, boots, was because of a miss. Since I could not get the Andrews to work, I put the old set back in and ordered splicers. While reinstalling them, I noticed a rattle in one of the plug boots. I tried to tighten it up, no way. So I took it apart and it was ...

Re: Proper way to bypass resister

When I talked to the factory, he mentioned checking the resistance. I have never done this so i got the book out to learn how. He was correct at .6 for the Andrews coil I had. It was hard to tell but it was less than one. So decided to check the stock coil, it was 2ohms, the Honda stock resistor, 3 ...

Proper way to bypass resister

I just installed the Andrews coil with a built in 3 ohm resister. What is the proper way to bypass them? Just tape them up and let them hang or plug them together?
