85 GL1200A DIES AFTER IT WARMS UP. STARTS WHEN COOL.

I HAVE A 1985 GL1200 THAT RUNS FINE UNTIL IT REACHES NORMAL OPERATING TEMP AND THEN IT DIES. WHEN IT COOLS DOWN IT STARTS FINE, BUT NOT UNTIL IT COOLS DOWN. ANY HELP OR IDEAS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. THANKS, FUZZY.

Do a search here for "pulse generator" and I think you will find your answer. The GL1200's are a bit known for this.

Yes I agree your PGs are taking a dump. Good thing you don't have an 84 ! you won't have to pull the engine that's the bright side :D

Thanks for the info. Ordered a shop manual because I don't know squat about this bike. Will definately check the P.G.s. Found a lot of info in the P.G. search. Will be back in touch when I get it running right. Fuzzy.
