Re: Steam Cleaner For Motorcycles - Anyone Tried This?

I haven't tried it but there was a thread regarding this a couple of months ago. The guy stated that he had no problems with plastic or paint as those questions came up. Worked great according to him. ???

Re: Rebuilding GL1500 Engine

Sorry I didn't do a rebuild thread. I wasn't a member of a group back then. That's what I meant by having only the manual as reference.

Re: Rebuilding GL1500 Engine

Not exactly sure what you mean by gear noise at idle. My 1500 and every one I have heard has a slight rumble noise at idle with the clutch disengaged. ??? And that was a joke when I referred to my chewing ability. I separated the engine and rebuilt my 76 gl1000 13 years ago with just the Honda manua...

Re: Louder pipes

I have Sportser Screaming Eagles on my 1000. For this bike I love them. Under normal acceleration or cruising on the highway they have a soft rumble. Not abnormal or bothersome at all. But...on hard acceleration running through the gears they almost sound like straight pipes. Zoom zoom.

Re: Why no reponse to "helpful" replies

I don't think that is true for the frequent posting members here. Bet you will find that those who don't return are usually first time posters. But it is impolite. Don't give up because of them.

You didn't mention if you synced the carbs. Idle slow to return is a symptom of uneven sync.

Re: brake bleeding lots of air

When are you seeing the air that you speak of? With a mighty vac you can draw air from around the hose connection as well as the threads of the bleed nipple. I would try with a helper to bleed by pumping the pedal. That said with no brake pedal pressure at all, Im guessing you have a failed master c...

Both items are a plus. The spin on adapter makes changing the filter much easier. The dip stick makes checking the oil much simpler. The only negetive is with the dipstick. Has to be removed and reinstalled when draining the oil. The connectors have been known to leak if not carefully torqued. I wou...

Re: Cant get piston back in

I don't mean to flip the seal. Just make sure it is facing the right direction front to back. The inside circumference of the seal is beveled. This allows the piston to be installed easily.

There is a dogbone fuse to the right of the battery that can develope hairline cracks as it ages and will work intermittantly. Just a thought.
