GL1500 auto fuel valve problem

Postby wishbone63 » Tue Jan 26, 2016 2:31 pm



I have a GL1500 and the auto fuel petcock valve is shooting gas out a little hole on the bottom of the valve as it sits above the tank. Can this be fixed or do I need a new valve?

good afternoon, there is a petcock rebuild kit on Cyclemax for $23.00 I wish I had know this when mine went back several years back. The petcock is expensive from mother Honda but a reasonably easy repair. see this link http://cyclemax.com/inc/sdetail/gl1500_ ... 8744/20457 . :D :D

There is a diaphragm inside it that is used to operate a valve that controls fuel flow. If the diaphragm wears out/cracks, gasoline can come out the bottom like you're seeing. The Cyclemax repair kit is a simple fix.

Here you can find a rebuild kit for $21.95. http://www.goldwingonline.com/index.php. I bought one for mine and it was really straight forward, easy after removing the radio. Replace the fuel filter while you are in there, it's right beside the fuel shutoff valve, sale price $5.95.

Those who say it cannot be done should try not to interrupt those who are doing it.

I bought a rebuild kit from amazon, installed it and no more fuel valve problem. The cost on Amazon was $21.00.
