1995 Goldwing 1500 SE

Postby burntice51 » Fri Dec 24, 2010 4:05 pm



Sometimes when riding the bike stalls out. As if it runs out of fuel. I have changed the fuel filter. I also noticed that the fuel is getting to the carbs. After the bike sits for 10 to 15 minutes it starts and runs fine. If I apply the choke open all the way it will run but only at a low rpm. can anyone give me any ideas as to what might be the problem. Can this be a vacume issue ? Or does it sound like a fuel problem ?

It sounds like a fuel problem, run a can of seafoam through her and see how that works. Add 1/2 can of seafoam to tank of fuel and ride, do this for the rest of the can. This is trying to clean the carb out and seafoam is a great product. You can get this at walmart.

Sounds like a fuel problem - not enough fuel getting to the engine, making it run too lean. Putting the choke on richens the mixture, which helps, but it isn't the solution to your problem. You've changed the fuel filter, go ahead and try the Seafoam for a tank or two of gas (I'd use a full can to a tank of gas if you're having problems this severe). If that doesn't help, pull the fuel output line from the fuel pump and test the volume and pressure - it could be a pump problem.

Hello I have a 97 1500SE and every now and then my bike does the same thing. there is a vent tube on top of to gas cap but the vent in the cap gets plugged. I soaked it in sea foam for a 24 hour period and have not had more problems. When it did happen and shut the bike down I unscrewed the cap and you could hear it sucking air back into the tank. then it started back up ok.

Didn't even think of this - it's more common on the 1100's and especially the 1200's, but it could certainly be on the 1500 as well. When your bike starts running poorly (i.e. lean), pull over, and while the engine is still running, unscrew the gas cap (you'll obviously have to have the compartment open first). If your bike suddenly comes back to life, then you've found your problem.

Yup I had this problem on my 1100, you could have a fuel pressure problem, if that is it, the fuel cap is not releiving pressure like it is suppose to. You can drill a small hole in the cap or take the gasket out of the inside of the cap. Let use know what you find.

I used a very small drill and put a hole in the cap.

The emissions inspector didn't even look at the cap, other than to verify that it and the hose was still connected.

If this happens after you hit a bump or cross railroad tracks and the bike goes dead but can be started if you turn the key off and then on it is the Bank angle Sensor which was recalled on my 1993 Aspencade, the dealer replaced the defective part free under the Recall. :D
