Are you saying that it misses when you are actually reversing the bike?

You may have a weak battery. The reverse takes a lot of power to move your bike. The GL1500 also requires quite a bit of power to run the engine - spark the plugs. If it doesn't have enough power, the plugs will not fire. If you're have a battery issue and are using up available power to reverse the bike, the engine could very well start to miss due to lack of power.

You can try holding the throttle open a bit to hold the revs at 2,000 or 2,500 RPM while you reverse. If that solves the problem, then you can be fairly sure you have a battery issue.

yes, only notice it while in reverse,
was on a trip about a year & half ago my alternator went out
installed new hi-out put alternator and batterykeep the battery on battery tinder most all the time
my gas mileage is not the greatest but I contribute that to being a trike ( 28 to 32) according to speed
by the way the place where I had it towed (Honda shop)said they had to order alternator,$ 402.00 take two days to get it, would have to pull motor to install alternator. 4.5 to pull,4.5to install, cost to pull & install motor 9 hr. at $85.00 hr. =$765.00---tow $85.00--3days in motel????
rented a truck, brought it home, had the alternator off in about 15 minutes, had it checked,
no good, ordered new and installed. best to know something about your bike before you get on road
402.00 alternator truck rent 400.00
765.00 labor alternator 219.00
300.00 extra days motel truck fuel 50.00
85.00 tow total 669.00
1502.00 total
sorry for the long story-- Jested wanted to show you how some try to take advantage
