99 Gl1500A runs rough and pops thru carbs

Post by Ron Gl1500 » Thu Aug 10, 2017 6:36 pm





Needing help, I bought my 99 Gl1500A last summer, ran great. Had to replace alternator in April so it sat a couple weeks. About a month ago is started sputtering below 2000rpms, then it started popping thru the carbs. I started with checking the air cleaner, what I found was a mouse nest, it had eaten part of the air cleaner so there was a few holes directly to the carbs, it had filled the air cleaner with bird seed and insulation. My question is could my problem just be from stuff getting into the carbs, I have read a few threads about this problem, but leaning towards dirty carbs because of finding the holes in the filter. Thanks

I think you have answered your own question. Rebuild the carbs as there would be crap that has been ingested...
