Hi
I just bought a 1994, GL1500. It has some minor problems { I Hope }
The start /reverse hesitates when I try to start or backup.
I have an erotic idle. I just read about trying sea foam.
I don't have a owners manual, I am trying to find one. any suggestions ?
Could someone tell me where the oil dip stick is ?
Thanks
BillyBoy

Look in the Manuals section.You might be able to gleen enough info from other manuals to cover your basic needs.
Oil dipstick it under the cover,right side lower engine.Smaller of the 2 caps.

Oh,and welcome to the site.I (we) enjoy new blood and new(old) bikes and lots of pictures too :D

Perhaps it a aftermarket add on.you know,to simulate a HD.
Sorry mate,I went off in left field there.
What were we talking about?????

Open the gas cap door there is a knob on the right side..that's for the idle. Manuals on Ebay all the time or you can buy at new reprint one at Helms..$50.

Starter hesitation? it may need to cleaned out or rebuilt ..carbon builds up in the starter ends. Or bad connections..to ground or to the battery..
HAD LOTS OF GOLDWING 75-83
NOW INTO 1500'S..RIDING A 1998 SE

FAIR WINDS,

You can look at this site for an e-manual in PDF form. They will have one for the bike, but maybe not for the exact year.

I ordered an owners manual and a repair manual on disk from e-bay.
Thanks for all the help.

Can anyone tell me where I can get one of those erotic idles from as my Wing is 24 years old and needs a bit of zing. I thought of sticking viagra in the tank and that might tighten things up a bit. :lol:

I'm not sure it would help in the tank....I heard that Viagra is 3% aspirin,2% ibuprofen and 95% fix a flat. :D
