83 Aspy "noisy" on initial start up

Postby lionsullivan » Thu Oct 22, 2009 10:51 pm



Hi, "new" owner. I have a 1983 Honda GL1100 Aspencade with just over 91,000 miles. It has been serviced regularly by previous owners (or so they say). I have had this cycle for about 4 months. On the start up in the mornings when the engine is cold...the engine is difficult to stay "cranked". When it is running, while in neutral, I sometimes have to accelerate a bit to keep it from stalling and there is a metallic popping sound like it is trying to shift into gear. Is there a "chain" or something else that needs immediate attention? I do not notice this sound after the engine has warmed. ALL fluids are maintained and changed regularly.
Your help, advice, ANY information will be greatly appreciated! Please if you have anything about this 1983 Honda GL1100 that you can share with me...I will be indebted!

Lionel

Hello Lionel,

I'v ehad my bike about 2 months and that sounds pretty much how mine is also. I've been told that noise is the primary chain. I've also been told that synching the carbs and doign a carb rebuild will help with the cold starting and smoothness. But regardless, GW's are cold blooded and need to warm up well before they smooth out. Once mine warms up it runs much better and is much smoother.
