I'm not a mechanic but I have another for parts. When this happened I saw a little smoke coming from starter area. Have checked all fuses including the several 5 amps behind the battery box. When pushing the starter button the click came from a small 1"x1" square electric. Part so I swapped it with ...

I've done all I can do to figure out the starter problem on my ride. When I push the starter button there is just a click. I've tried to the best of my ability to figure it out so now I'm going to replace it. On another 1500 I bought there was a gear that fell down inside the crank case. So l am loo...

Re: 1988 gl1500 clutch leaking out weep hole help

There might be a guide to rebuild the slave on the site. Its a pretty simple thing. So what about the seal in the clutch c...

Re: 1988 gl1500 clutch leaking out weep hole help

Here is a photo of how mine leaked thru that little weep hole. Its more of a notch than a hole. But the fluid sort of etched my cover. What caused mine to leak was just neglect and age. The slave got gunked up and stopped working right. By the time I got to it the slave cylinder was badly scored an...
