1989 gl1500 reverse problem

Post by kalilu » Thu Apr 25, 2013 8:04 pm

I have a 1989 gl1500 that have a reverse problem. The reversed was working before I park it for the winter. The only thing I did to the bike during the winter was replacing both tires and painting the bike. When I engage the reverse level and press the start buttom, the bike will move a foot. press it again, it will move a foot and thats it. The reverse light do come, when the level is engage. Can someone please help me with this problem?
