Re: Barn find fuel issue

Plugged jets in the carbs - may need a rebuild - or just a good clean out... sitting for that long it should be a planned job - just like the timing belts.

Do it once - do it properly and enjoy the benefits of years of riding - trouble free - fingers crossed :)

Re: GL1000 How to install an electric fuel pump

Excellent result - nice write up.

Are the GL1000 pumps no longer available or repairable ?

Re: Gas tank rust

Is there a section on top of the tank (after the seat is removed) that is used for the fuel level gauge.. If you wanted to run the tank low on fuel, then remove that cover might give you access to at least put a small container in there under the lid access to catch a lot of the dust debris if you p...

Re: Bike will not start

Try it without using any choke - and check to ensure the off run off switch engaged to "run" - but it sounds on the first attempt there is a slight "kick" sound of trying to start..

Re: Clutch cover leaking (78 GL1000)....tried EVERYTHING...almost...

I can still see gasket residue on the studs either side of the bottom one - so you still need to clean that area - plus the actual clutch cover may need some work to make sure it is flat..

Your gasket cutting is pretty good

Re: what strength loctite to use

Use BLUE coloured loctite, the RED colour is for Permanent. But I'm sure the original never used loctite anyway - the correct use of a tension wrench should be your friend for this job.

Is this a normal amount of residue? GL1500 Valkyrie

Hi guys, I do regular maintenance (the easy stuff) on my bike/s, and have recently done an oil change where there was nothing worth noting from the breather overflow hose on the rhs of the motor. I have drained fluid from here previously with the inclusion of some milky residue. Having just done a r...

Re: 83 interstate over heating

Do you have any history on the bike?

Has it just started overheating? IS there oil in the coolant or vice versa?

Does it blow any smoke?

Does it build up a lot of pressure in the radiator. Does the overflow bottle boil?

Just looking for symptoms really.

On holidays from last thursday. Done a few things so far. Washed the Valkyrie, gave it a service - new oil and filter, changed spark plugs, adjusted valves but not really worth doing as only about half a thouh on a few tappets. Balanced the carbs - left bank running fractionally rich, right bank fra...

Re: sticking clutch

Has it been sitting a while? If so the plates could be stuck together. Put the bike on the centrestand - or get the rear wheel off the ground. Start the bike and zip tie the clutch lever back as far as it will go - then put the bike in gear, then gently apply the rear brake several times you will fe...

That's a great camera - the arm holding it must have gotten a little sore by the end judging by the comment lol. I liked the ability to basically look all around you...do you have information available on the camera? Thanks again. Great mural as well - that must be about a mile or so long. Thanks

Re: Calipers won't come off my 1100 Wing

If the wheel is locked up it could be the caliper is frozen -or cannot release, undo the brake bleeder nipple it may release a bit of pressure. Other than that - a good hit with a rubber mallet will not break anything, and should move the pistons enough that you can lift off the caliper.

Re: New GL1500 owner here

Timing belts would be a must imho. Plus flush and bleed the brakes and clutch. Tyres - Ok for a while, but worth putting on some new ones when you get the bike running right. Would run some fuel injector cleaner through it for the first few tanks to help clear any build up of fuel scum - fresh fuel ...

Re: Timing Belt Cover Bolt not going in

Run a bit of wd40 into the holes and then work the bolt back and forward half a turn at a time until the threads clear... flush a few times with the wd40 or some other lubricant. Make sure you use the right length bolts for the correct holes a well.

Re: I'm back and already some questions

The saddlebags are more than likely reflectors - but can be converted to lights..

Sounds like ring of fire for the front wheel
