Re: Has your Wing ever left you near stranded....

My 1988 Gl1500 with 31000 miles on it. Left me stuck no spark.
Cruise control lite would not go on.
At restaurant and took kill switch apart. Screw holding one of the two wires on kill switch loosened up and lost contact. Tighten screw, reassemble and good to go.

Re: tapping sound

Your bike has hydraulic lifters
No adjustment
Maybe sticky lifter!

Re: Headlight goes out

I think this is vary dangerous,
If I'm riding at night and headlight goes out. It could be a fatal accident!
I'm going to rewire and add a warning dash light for tail light failure!!

Headlight goes out

The headlight goes out when ether headlight or tail light fuse is pulled!!
Why does tail light fuse kill power to headlight? Vary dangerous at night!
How can I put on seperate circuits ? My 1988 and 1990 are same issue.
