Re: GPS Input Device for GL1100 and GL1200

I guess I would have to order a new GPS as well, but indeed it would be a lot safer. My 1200 is a trike, and it would be nice to have the input, the 1200 is noisier than the 1500, and I just ordered one for the 1500. 8-)

Re: Still tapping....Spark Knock?

Well my old ltd has about 54,000 miles and I still hear it occasionally for a few seconds, scared me the first time or two, but it is still chugging so I don't get concerned about it anymore, I do automatically check the oil pressure and temp though.
Good luck, maybe someone else has a better idea ;)

Re: Still tapping....Spark Knock?

I agree with Ratwing about the lifters, I get the tapping noise on my LTD at the strangest times, like at some point, it either looses the oil or something, but it occasionally happens, I hear it more at warmup, and not every time, and sometimes after running a while at idle, I don't hear it at road...

Re: Fuel system light comes on when engine gets hot

Well, sure sounds like "maybe" it's just a gasket, if you look at one of the parts site, such as Hondaline or bike bandit, they will have blowups of the engine and you can determine the parts that you need from there, and I'm sure if you search under 1200 headgasket on here or on one of the other fo...

if it is lifters, then add seafoam for a hundred or so miles, then change oil

Re: removing false fuel tank

I used a shop vac, to get the original stuff out and saved it for other uses, as it will continue to work, for how long I don't know, I gave it to a friend to use, on the 1200 tank, I would open the petcock and continue to pour distilled water through it, until it was clear, and then maybe use the s...

Re: removing false fuel tank

did it in the bike, it's a chore to remove those tanks, someone else on one of the forums told me about the rusteco stuff, and the good thing about it is that it is not caustic, all organic, don't know how it works, or what it is but it worked on that tank.

Re: Fuel system light comes on when engine gets hot

I have never seen my ltd get over 7 bars, and that was running flat out for a while and sitting in idling traffic, definitely check for engine over heating problems, and check the diagnostic lights when the fuel system light is on, you cannot see all of the lights when the unit is installed under th...

Re: removing false fuel tank

I cleaned a 1500 tank that was full of rust and sludge (had been sitting for 7 years with gas in the tank) using a product called "rusteco" and there is a website, product was expensive about $120.00, approximately a quart of material, then fill the rest of the tank with distilled water, let sit for...

Re: 1986 GL1200 SEi

Trouble shooting the air compressor is very involved, your best bet is to get a manual, it sounds like the dessicant may be saturated and not allowing air to pass or output from the compressor is blocked otherwise...regardless the 1200 manual has detailed information

Just the seals on the front forks, I actually had a friend do that, and mount the new tires, but as he always says to use the Honda OEM fork seals, I have had to do that on every Goldwing, replace the leaking fork seals. When I got the bike, the bottoms of both rear bags were busted out, looked pret...

Yeah I bought a kit to repair that vacuum valve, then ultimately bought the complet valve, now that wasn't cheap, over a $100.00 but I was in so far already, that I just bit the bullet, I had to rebuild the front forks on that bike, replace the clutch slave and rebuild the master cyclinder, and othe...

Re: 1988 gl1500 what to look at ?

I have a set of carbs for an '88, that when I bought them off ebay, supposedly clean, and ready to go, I was going to use them on a '89, but the gas inlets are different, but I have no use for them, if you can use them, the price is right!
