Re: Neutral/Reverse lights inop.

The common thing between neutral and reverse light is the reverse switch, located behind left fairing cover, you may try to move the reverse lever several times, it may make the switch loose and back to work.
I hope this helps.

Re: MAJOR short circuit

This picture shows what I use to find a short: P8010291a.JPG Instead of replace a fuse I hook the fuse emulator with the lamp at the terminals. Any short will make the lamp glow. This allows me to disconect things or open conectors and trace the circuit much better than a multimeter. Hope this helps...

When back, after replacement of alternator, I simply wired a 2W bulb in series with the alternator exciter (did I tell you I'm a cheap guy) ...

My new toy

Hi all:
I just got (actually 1 week ago) this nice trike, it's a red 20° Aniversary Aspencade, which AFAIK is the first 1500 trike getting to my country. My previous '93 SE (which I'll be selling ASAP) was getting a little heavier by the day. :mrgreen:
Here it is:

Re: Need relay help

Your conections seems to be rigth, probably your horn switch isn't good.
Try to hook a lamp between +B and the horn switch (86) , and see if it ligths up, if it doesn't it's a defective or dirty switch. (no contact)

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...
