Cruise control disengages

I looked around the forum and did really see this particular issue I’m having. My 94 Aspencades cruise control works, indicators lights come on, and cruise will engage but after several minutes or so it just shuts off and cruise on light goes out. I can rengage and it will work fine for a couple mil...

Re: My first Harley

I think I will hold onto both the 1500 and the Harley. My wife is the same way, she loves the Goldwing so gotta keep her. Took the Harley out today. Brutal fun

My first Harley

I'm 51 and after riding Hondas all my life (I currently own 2 Goldwings; an 85 Aspencade 1200 and a 94 Aspencade 1500) I purchased a 2000 Harley Davidson Low Rider. Extremely low miles 28k and very well maintained, I feel like I got a great deal at $4500. My definition of riding the Goldwing versus ...

Fuel pump volume

What should the volume be? I saw the minimum in the service manual. I did the 5 second test and got 8 ounces of fuel in beaker. Thats 96 ounces a minute! Should I be concerned with that or measure and see what pressure is instead?

Re: 1993 GL1500SE Pouring Fuel

I'm curious as to what you found. I am having the same issue. Replaced float valve set as well as a randakk kit but still have fuel pouring out of the bottom tubes. I also replaced the pump with a auto pump when I bought the non-running bike. This is a California model

Re: GL1500 pouring fuel out of overflow

ct1500, I don't recall seeing your post concerning car pumps but funny you say that because I was questioning that very thing this afternoon. I replaced the defective fuel pump that was in the bike when I bought it with the Carter/NAPA P72190 after researching various Goldwing forums and taking the ...

Re: GL1500 pouring fuel out of overflow

After pulling carbs off again and verifying that when float closes I can't blow through line I reassembled and started bike. It started leaking but tapping the bowl through the front of bike made it stop. So, I focused on the brakes and finally got them bled. During this time I would start the bike ...

Re: GL1500 pouring fuel out of overflow

Float level was 8 mm. Rapped on the bowls again last night and leak stopped. Cranked it several times last night as well as this morning and no leaks. Going to run some seafoam and see how it goes. Now I have to bleed brakes, have no rear brake at all.

GL1500 pouring fuel out of overflow

I have a new to me 94 Aspy that has a California compliant sticker on frame. When I bought bike it wouldn't start so after some troubleshooting found dirty connection at bank angle sensor and dead fuel pump. Repaired connection and replaced pump with a 77 Celica pump from RockAuto. She fired right u...

Re: 94 GL1500A fuel pump or ECM or something else?

UPDATE!!! I now have voltage to the pump and a spark! Still no pump output, pump is definitely toast! I did the Power and Ground Bank Angle Sensor Isolation test and when I got to the green connector it was completely covered in crud. Cleaned it up and did the test which passed and pointed to a faul...

Re: 94 GL1500A fuel pump or ECM or something else?

OK, didnt realize I had additional troubleshooting procedures in the back if this manual. I just got this 1500, been riding a 1200 for last 8 years so sorry about my ignorance. Doing the isolation procedure 1 it failed test 6 which directed me to test D which results say to service fuel pump. So, I ...

Re: 94 GL1500A fuel pump or ECM or something else?

Yes, I have measured at pump while using starter, no voltage. How do I measure at the ECM, on the wiring harness? Which points do I measure? I did the fuel pump test where I shorted the BLK/WHT and BLK/BLU wire connector terminals with no positive results.

The attached photos show the ECM test I referred to. I just applied 12 V directly to pump and it does nothing.

Re: 94 GL1500A fuel pump or ECM or something else?

I finished the ECM module test and it passed. The manual says that if all test pass then its a faulty ECM. Ugh, I hope that's the case. I haven't priced one yet but it sounds expensive. Will replace pump too with the Napa replacement pump referred to on this forum.

Re: 94 GL1500A fuel pump or ECM or something else?

Yes, the cruise on light does go out when I turn the kill switch. In regards to the pump running that was what I took away from the manual as well that it will run a second or 2 after ignition is turned on. Irregardless, it doesn't run at all when I hit the starter. I pulled the outlet tube and stuc...

Re: 94 GL1500A fuel pump or ECM or something else?

Thanks for the reply virgilmobile. I checked for spark on the right side of bike, none had any spark. I'm going to do the ECM system inspection per the service manual when I get another set of leads for my multimeter. FYI - When I depress the cruise control the light on dash illuminates with key tur...

94 GL1500A fuel pump or ECM or something else?

I recently acquired a garage kept Aspy 1500 that the owner said "...I'm having some fuel issues...and don't want to run down whether its a carburetor or fuel filter or bank angle sensor". I was going to pull the carbs and rebuild if necessary but decided to see if the carbs were getting any fuel. I ...
