fuel hesitate problems noise issue

Post by sprtbkman » Fri Feb 10, 2012 9:37 pm

Hello all,
Can anyone help me with the following issues that I’m experiencing with my 1986 Honda GL1200 sei. While accelerating form a dead stop, switching into gears, and while cruising the bike seems to hesitate like its starving for gas for a second or two. I also hear a noise that sounds like when a vehicle pulls up next to you that has air ride system on it it makes a puuuush sound. Can any one assist this problem just started happening a few days ago. I was wondering if it could be a fouled plug and if the fuel injection system needs to be cleaned by putting in so fuel injector clean? I would gladly appreciate any assistance anyone can provide. Thanks, sprtbkman

Try undoing your gas cap and see if it makes any difference. The valves in the gas caps tend to get clogged over the years, so a vacuum develops in the gas tank, causing fuel starvation. That could be your problem.
