Idle needs adjusted up

Postby trikeman II » Tue Nov 13, 2012 9:47 pm



GL 1800 how do you set the idle? Mine idles at abt. 600 RPM. I would like for it to idle at 1000 RPM. The reson is I have a lot of extra lights on the bike and when I come to a stop, the lights dim down terribly. Any suggestions!

I Trikeman

You can not change the idle RPM, I look in my books to my GoldWing 2003.

This is an electronic program adjust the idle.

If all of your extra lights are LED i would take a look at your battery and its connections. You might want to get a meter and check its voltage at idle. An 1800 alternator puts out enough wattage that you shouldnt have any issues.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I will have the battery check tomorrow and also the alternator.

Have you ever checked the valve clearance? Tight exhaust valves can cause idle to be low.
