Re: not starting

Just so you know... If the plugs were black you more than likely have a carb fuel delivery problem and the new plugs will soon return to their black condition.

Re: A Goldwing...tractor?

After reading of this problem from other 1500 owners I also put a cable tie on the latch. Haven't needed it yet.

Re: !993 Gl1500 Aspencade

Lots of rust could mean the frame is rusted out causing the bike to lean excessively on the side stand as well the center stand not wanting to spring back. You might want to inspect just to be sure since you are in the land of perpetual rain. Lol.

Re: Bogs when clutch released.

The carbs are in need cleaning and rebuilding. Seafoam can't get into all the fuel ports and passages if they are totally clogged and not into the air passages at all.

Re: "Beware the Bull Wagon" NM/AZ Hwy 80

Thanks for the heads up. I stay as far away from the cattle haulers as possible. I have never seen one that was driving like he was sane. Don't know why but it seems like they all drive like that.

The rotor cover brackets can even be bolted down out of alignment by about 1\4 inch. But I suspect you are referring to the actual fender side covers.???

Carbs being out of sync will cause the primary chain to clatter at idle. Will smooth out as you increase rpms.

Re: Struggling with carb3/plug3

"Compression on all 3 cylinders is 105". What about the 4th cylinder? 105 is extremely low. 170ish is optimal and 140 is the need to service point. GLs are capable of running with even lower compression but 105 I would be very concerned about.
