Trying again

Postby Dougs dream » Sat May 08, 2010 12:56 pm



Well I am trying once more to get in the wind. Last summer it was 750 maxim that never made it on the road. This year its a 92 1500 fuel injected goldwing that runs but has clutch issues. I,m HOPING to bleed out the system and solve the problem. It's great to have a forum to go to for advice, thanks all and wish me luck, happy trails!

detrdrbuzzard, thanks for good wishes on the clutch. Honda may not have made a fuel injected 1500 but there is one sitting in my driveway.

Yup, all 1500's had dual carburetors. Curious as to what fuel injection system you have?

I honestly don't know. All I know about the bike so far is it is sa 1500 anniversary edition celebrating ten years of American production. It sat for two years outside in the weather and started up in about 30 seconds. The previous owner said it was fi. I just went out and looked to check myself when I heard honda didn't make one and it sure looks like fuel injection to me.

Well good luck with it, try posting some pictures then we might be able to identify what you have and help get it running properly.. Bleeding the clutch is an easy job, so hopefully it won't take you long to become mobile..

I posted some in my gallery, I hope they show enough. Is there a place on this site with tutorials? I looked but didn't find any but it usually takes me a while to find my way around a new website.

I had a look at your images - nothing nonstandard there, looks like the intake manifold from a standard carbureted GL1500.

Thanks. now I know. I just took the previous owners word for it, seems kind of strange he didn't know. He had no reason to try and fool me and when it sat that long and started up I just assumed he was right. Goldwing carbs must have some design advantages over others because I know if you leave a lot of other bikes out for a couple years you have to clean out the carbs. Now it's on to the clutch.

Goldwing carbs will gum up just like any other carb. The only saving grace is that goldwings have big engines so the carbs tend to have bigger holes than other bike carbs so they take longer to get blocked!! But they will block like any other carb..
