Need help with Cruise air filter

Postby Vito » Mon Mar 16, 2015 1:26 pm



Hi everybody. Today i want to change all Filters onn my GL 1500 1988. Big Air Filter and Sub Air Filter changed. But suddenly I see that something is missing... This little tiny housing for Filter... I`ve attached Foto. This is strange because i`ve ridden for last six Months and everything was OK. So the Question: When this housing is missing, can this, for example, poor performance to cause?

Thanks

That filter has nothing to do with how the bike runs. When the valve dumps vacuum to the servo only a tiny bit of air gets ingested there. Order a new filter housing.

Over time it could cause problems with sticky cruise solenoids, but it won't affect overall performance.

Hi WingAdmin, can You describe, maybe with pictures or sketches, how this cruise control works? I mean this little black housing with cruise filter. Thanks.

There is an actuator, that has a diaphragm inside of it. When vacuum is applied to one side of the diaphragm, it moves. The other side of the diaphragm is connected to a cable which runs to the throttles. So when vacuum is applied to the actuator, it opens the throttle.

The engine generates vacuum in the intake plenum, as the pistons suck air against the restriction of the throttle sliders. This vacuum is used to operate the cruise control (among other things). The black housing with the cruise filter contains three solenoid-actuated valves that regulate the vacuum getting to the actuator. The first solenoid valve opens to connect the actuator to the vacuum line, which makes the throttle open. The second solenoid valve opens to connect the actuator to the ambient air pressure, which makes the throttle open. And the last solenoid valve is like the second, except it works in reverse - it is open when it is NOT actuated. When the bike is running and cruise is turned on, the third solenoid valve is closed. When the bike is turned off, the third solenoid valve opens, allowing ambient air pressure into the actuator. This prevents the cruise from holding the throttle open when the bike is turned off, and prevents damage to the actuator from changing ambient air pressure.
