Yet another "Rubber thingy" question

Postby n5926g » Sun Apr 19, 2015 11:27 am



Mornin guy,s....Finally got back to work on the GL1500,and must say the article on the timing belt replacement was excellent...That has now been done(date code on the old ones was Sept of 02)...Looked fine,but since she had been sitting for around 10 years,figured replacing them was a no brainer....I had to order a new rubber gasket that is evidently some sort of heat shield,Was planning on putting the new carb,s on today,but that rubber doesent seem to want to "fall into place" so to speak....anyone have suggestions as to how to get it back where its supposed to go?

I wish I did, my heat shield is starting to tear and come apart, for temporary shield I got a truck inner tube and cut it to cover up the engine until the time comes to disassemble and redo my carbs, assuming that time comes, I just got the bike broke in last fall with 141,000 miles on her.

Twist ties, Elec-Tape, Garden wire...
I'm sure there's other ideas to hold that rubber heat-shield where you want it.

My understanding of the heat shield is over the manifolds and under the ignition wiring. I have not completely exposed the engine as of yet so I do not really know what other tubings and wiring are there. I just read that the rubber shield is to reduce the heat exposure to the wiring and rubber tubing that is above the engine to slow the deteration of tubing and wiring.

oooOOooooooh, said Edith Bunker.
Yes, it's to slow the radiant heat getting to the wiring and carb bowls.

I forgot about the protection to the carbs from getting over heated and causing vapor lock. Thanks Edith

I found a picture of the heat shield in my service manual. It seems to go on top of the manifolds before u install the carbs. Hopefully the picture will help you N5926g. Once I figure out how to attach a picture I will send it along.

Hopefully the picture of the heat shield is attached. I do better with pencil and paper than electronics. But I do try

.
Instead of taking everything apart one COULD cut that rubber into strips and feed it through then lace or twist tie'm together. it needs not be perfect, just works at deflecting (or separating) the heat from parts.
