I can't find a torque curve (graph) for the GL 1500. Any one have one they can post up?
Thanks.

Haven't seen one.My 88 will start to bend my head back around 3000 rpm....and not stop till I either red line it or let off the throttle.Usually due to the screaming on the intercom. :mrgreen:
Just for fun last Sunday,two up riding,I left it in OD and dropped it to 800 rpm(around 25 mph).Then I opened the throttle about half way.Now my 1200 would have grumbled at me but the 1500 just wound back up to the speed limit.I was impressed.
