Cruise control GL1500 SE

Postby Lavelle » Mon Nov 02, 2015 12:08 am



Hi folks,

I have a 1996 GL1500 SE and I can't get the cruise control to set beyond 55mph. I live in Australia and my GL1500 is a American import. Does the cruise control system on the American model only set to 55mph or am I missing something ?? please help :roll:

Should set to around 75MPH and there is a fix to get it to set at aroudn 95MPH..by switching the 4 and 5th gear wires in the box under the seat..several threads on it and a How to article too I think.

Not for sure on your bike but 1500s built for the Japanese market have a cruise that top out at around 55mph.

As far as I know only the Japanese spec will restrict you to 55 MPH (80 KM). If your radio only goes to 90 on FM then you could have a Jap spec. I have one and would like to replace my cruise control unit with a USA one. On another thread this was advised
