Hard disks, they’re very powerful and really cheap. 8-) Keeping one close to the bolt/nut coming o...

Re: Photo Tag ---Anyone want to play?

Thank you wingman12, I'll do my best to fully recover and be back on the road ASAP.
And yes it's winter here, but mild one, very seldom it gets below 40's, so is always good time to ride.
We had a snow fell once back in 07/2007 here; and it was after more than 100 years.

Re: Photo Tag ---Anyone want to play?

Here I´m waiting to ride and play this game; it's been some time without doing it, to make the story short, first was my right hip replacement, (05/17), then problems with forks/tripple tree (11/18) that were solved by 02/18, and on 03/28/18 due to a hard effort I ruptured # T12 vertebra; which has ...

Re: Older Than Dirt Quiz

At 75 I passed the quiz test with tripple "AAAs"; some things didn't exist in my place, and some I saw while living in CA in the late '60s .
And just came up to my memory (not the nicest) ; as a teenager walking behind a horse drawn Funeral Carriage.
I'm glad to think of all those times... :lol:

Re: Photo Tag ---Anyone want to play?

I'm really happy to see this game rolling, but it's only been 4 weeks since my replacement hip surgery, and is going to be at least 2 more months before I can ride (and play here) again, so for now we have to rely on someone else to do the job. I'll keep an eye on you!!!

Re: 2000 GL1500 Carb won't stay in sync

You can try this: remove the air filter and with motor running check closely if when accelerating both vacuum pistons move at unison. If not you may have the outer edge of diaphragm not seated correctly into the grove. Don't ask how I know. Not sure about getting out of sync, but it will cause malfu...

Re: No starter! Where do I look next?

That's the one, Relay "B". It doesn't get power until relay "A" is switched ON. Again, since you hear no clcks at all, start at the ign. fuse

Re: 1988 gl1500 Fuel Cap Difference?

I knew that I had this info, and here is:
The tube from gas cap goes to the canister, which is only in Cal models, so it wont hurt anything to put a regular gas cap, unless you get caught in Ca.

Re: 1988 gl1500 Fuel Cap Difference?

Can you see gas on the little pan below gas cap?? , but I believe your problem is with the petcock valve. I also have a Cal model with the gas cap and center off hose, which goes way below the motor, shouldn't smell gas from there.
