Re: Throttle/push cable issue

Maybe, but the only way to be sure would be to have someone with the correct cable measure the amount of metal cable that pulls out. Mine I should probably start with giving the measurement of mine later, but i specifically mean pulling all of the metal cable slack out on one end and measuring it (u...

Throttle/push cable issue

My throttle cable broke, and I ordered a replacement for $15 on ebay, the pull cable seems alright. But the push cable is no where near long enough for some reason. There are zero kinks, and its too short even when I put it on the handle and then directly to the carb, not routing it anywhere. Just s...

Backfiring in the carb

My carbs were flooding with gas in the plenum now I fixed that issue and the carb seems good, But with the choke on in the left side of the carb I can hear a noise I think is that little piston in the carb. But on low throttle or idle the bike has a flash of fire in the air box from backfiring and m...

Re: Gas pouring out Gl1000 exhaust.

I took apart the carbs, and Im missing 2 carb to plenum fuel seals. Also lucky me I realized I can blow through those air holes to see if the needle valve is working, and Im pretty sure my floats are very wrongly adjusted so tomorrow, Ill order those fuel seals, and buy a measurement tool at ace har...

Re: Gas pouring out Gl1000 exhaust.

I switched out the the bad #3 carbs float and needle / seat with one on the left, put the carbs back on, and now it backfires out the air intake/plenum and thenn catches on fire. And also the carb now makes a rattling noise it sounds like one of those pistons bouncing up and down. Id tell you if swa...

Re: Gas pouring out Gl1000 exhaust.

I had a bad float set that would jam open, had to replace the float and needle, plus a good cleaning of the seat. I don't think thats the issue with mine, when I say it pours gas, it really does pour, if I ran it for over 5 minutes id probably have a few cups of gasoline. It could be so I plan to t...

Gas pouring out Gl1000 exhaust.

I thought I incorrectly set my floats since thats the only thing that could let gas through. I swapped things out and looked at it and just make sure it was good, and it still pours out fuel and its the rear right carb. I did a bit more googling and I couldnt find crap til I looked here https://www....

Re: Gl1000 oil, why does it take forever to drain?

So i checked the plugs and the rear wet was soaked, and when I ran the starter with the kill switch on off, that cylinder was misting gas out the spark plug hole, so I know thats the culprit. Just not sure if its the float valve til swap em, and if thats not it then I cant wait to pull it all apart ...

Re: Gl1000 oil, why does it take forever to drain?

well the oil draining isnt an issue now but one of the carbs on the right floods so bad that fuel pours out the exhaust still, I just took them out and the floats are all adjusted about the same and shouldn't be sticking or anything, I think the float valve isn't any good, but also Im not that great...

Re: Gl1000 oil, why does it take forever to drain?

**** my bad, this is a carb issue.
My oil may be useless now but I KNow for certain, my rightside carbs were flooding badly, so bad liquid gas was coming out the exhaust.
I was expecting to have to change piston rings or something ive been dreading

Gl1000 oil, why does it take forever to drain?

I thought I had a leak, through the plate on the rear of the engine now I am pretty sure that my oil is way overfilled, because it took so long to drain that I must not of drained it all, why does it take so long? I did it on the center stand as well.

Re: Tachometer gauge not working

There's three connections on the 7 volt regulator, if there's some doubt about the regulator get a voltmeter and measure it. Red wire should be 12 volts, Green wire is ground, and the black wire should measure at...... 7 volts. Well, now is the time to test my regulator, my grandfather letting me b...

Carb issue, ice cold manifold

I ran my bike and noticed the rear right carb (#3) was ice cold, so I took the carbs off, mostly because the plug was wet for #3, so I thought the float was seizing up, but it turned out that my slide/air piston thing was what seized, so I cleaned out the green gunk crap around it and its good now j...

Gear oil for final drive.

I've looked at both this website and randakks for info on gear oil for the final drive
This website suggests (75w-90)
Randakks suggest (90/100w)

And I have on hand
"Lubrimatic" (80w/90)
hypoid gear oil.

Would it be okay if I just used that so I don't have to buy any?
