Slight odor of gasoline

Just got back from MYR Fall Rally 2017. I noticed a slight odor of gasoline while driving for the past couple of days in the high temps of Myrtle Beach. Got back to the Pittsburgh area about 6:00 pm tonight and still noticed the odor. The bike is a 2009 GL1800 and is running great, 75-80 mph all the...

Battery interchange ???

Is wondering if anybody has had success using a 20 series battery for the replacement on the GL1500. It appears by the specs that the battery is a little shorter in length but should fit otherwise. The 20 series is the newer style used in the GL1800.

Clutch Chatter

Fairly new to the Goldwing GL1500 but I have a question. The bike is a MotorTrike trike and when pulling out from a Stop, especially on an uphill grade the clutch has a small amount of chatter to it. I try to ease it out slowly and rev it as it engages but it just seems to grip (chatter) as compared...

Re: Wheezing sound after riding

Not sure about the Calif model. The air filter does not have the Calif type extra filter in the center of it. The gas cap has a vacuum to it when I open it to refuel, is it possibly a blocked vent on the cap. Haven't checked if it will stop when gas cap is open. Its 38 F here in the Pittsburgh area ...

Wheezing sound after riding

Does anyone know what the wheezing type sound is on a 1500 after a ride and returning to the garage ? I have noticed it a few times. It sounds like an air leak but appears not to be due to air shock pressure staying the same. It will last like 2-3 seconds and does it a few times. Thanks.

Re: Kevlar Front Brake Pads

So, would the Organic pads or the Semi-Metallic pads be a better choice ? (Edit) I see that you show the Organic pads, Thanks.

Re: 1994 GL1500A Fuel gauge (only) just quit working

Thanks for the info guys. I was trying to get into it today, but it appears that quite q bit of plastics have to come off to get the sensor on the side of the tank. I thought that it would be accessible by pulling the seat, but it looks like everything in the front of the tank and leftside has to be...

1994 GL1500A Fuel gauge (only) just quit working

I just purchased a 1994 GL1500A Trike. The seller advised that the Fuel gauge had just quit working. I have been checking on here about the Temp gauge and the Fuel gauge Not working and to check the ground, however the Temp gauge is working properly. Does anyone have any ideas why just the Fuel gaug...
