Hesitation 2000 SE

Postby huttner1 » Tue Jun 16, 2009 12:09 pm

Hi guys first time to sight, my 2000 SE has a hesitation until it reaches full operation temp
My Local dealer says this is normal to keep choke 1/5 on until then and shut it off ?? Any help?? should I seek new dealer? Or is there a fix I can do here thx H

The Goldwings are cold-blooded - they don't like to run until they are nice and warm. Mine does the exact same thing as you describe, and I'm pretty sure your dealer is right - just crack the choke until the bike is nice and warm.

I just let mine sit and warm up in the driveway until it's at normal operating temperature, then I can ride with no hesitation or problems.

I have 1989 gl1500 and mine does the same thing except it does it all the time, warm or cold. Any fixes or is that normal.

My 88 also has the hesitation. 4 degree trigger wheel did not help. This has evidently solved the problem for most. There is a service bulletin from 1988 but the dealer said he would have to order the parts separately and it would be expensive. I may try cleaning the carbs this winter to see if that will help.
