A very poor translation of the above, thanks to Google:

I have the same problem in my gl 1500 1988 even I do not find solution. I did the maintenance change straps and all the liquids if they have some solution you cause let me know

A new 4 degree ignition Trigger Wheel will help but is not a cure all. The Trigger Wheel is usually available through Ebay. Be cautious of those that want to charge $30 and more. They should be available at about $19.

There are two versions of the Trigger Wheel, the 4 degree and the 6 degree. The 6 degree was made for the Valkyrie. You need to use the 4 degree. There is one on Ebay now, and maybe lots more, but I just checked did a search for Trigger Wheel and it came up immediately so here is the item number: 190373454331 At least you will be able to see what I am talking about.


Good luck with the hesitation.

In reguards to throttle hesitation i cured the problem. What you need is a good mechanic. The carbs have to come off. They made a kit in 1988 that is no longer available. All 1500's carbs are basicly the same on the inside give or take. We replaced the low speed needle valves and jets, diaphrams, springs and carb caps. with new parts from a 1991. Find them on line much cheaper than honda. A good mech. can fix the problem in @ 4 or 5 hrs. Make ALL the differance in the world. It runs like a raped ape now. No more slow speed issues. Starts much better. Hope this helps. After all that is done the carbs need to be synced and tuned and all other things need to be gone over etc. My guy said he never had a lot of luck with the trigger wheels.
