Re: The Magic Is Gone!

Hi Dave:
I’m at 4 months to be 78, and Just like John sometimes I think about the time to step down. It makes me feel awful!!
It’s sad to hear that someone like is leaving this place.
Good luck in your new mission whichever it’ll be. We’ll miss you.

Re: Clutch fading

May I suggest that before you do anything farther, try this simple test: take her out for a ride, let her warm enough until the clutch slips, then pull the clutch lever and reinstalling it, …..did it get back to normal?? If so, you're having a pressure build up due to the bled hole in master cylinde...

Re: GL1500 SE 1996 Fuse #2 Blows

I use this gadgets to find a short or heavy loaded circuit; made from two spade terminals, piece of cooper wire, clear epoxy. Inserted in the fuse holder, and the lamp beween the terminals it will show a short sparing fuses.
I hope this helps.

Re: Carb sync screw missing!

I have a set of carbs of a GL1000, and believe Honda uses same bolts in every model. The thing is a hex head bolt with a slot, 5 mm x 25 mm long , the spring is 16 mm long. I would turn (or grind out) the threads for about 2 mm from the end and round it to make a lead, then light glued to a 8mm sock...

Re: Not riding? How do you keep yourself busy?

The "Low Fuel" light on my 1500 works, but when it comes on it is so dim it can hardly be seen. So I breadboarded up a circuit to detect this and light the bulb brightly. I determined the Low Fuel bulb only sees about 5 volts or so when it comes on... I can draw up and post the comparator circuit i...

Re: Jis screwdriver

As I've had read in many sites, they state that all japanese bikes have JIS screws. Those are for threaded holes.
Also that Phillips screws were designed to work on sheet metal, where the driver must slip before the screw may overpull and strip the threads.
Those Vessel tools are fantastic!

Re: How screwed am i

+ 1 on Ct1500 comment. If it were me, I'll apply some heat to the casing, and using a visegrip (being much secured) try to loosen it; first a little wiggle back and forth.
By being a machinist most of my life I may say that trying to drill it free hand is an impossible mission.

Re: Won't start

It depends how far you stripped it out; by your comment, if no head nor brake light I would say to check first at the ignition key switch, they're powered from the main 30 amp fuse, loose contact there could be the problem.
I'm including a circuit diagram for you.
