Re: Lighting system issues

Hi Ficke: Here is what I use for general electrical check up Short Tester.jpg It's very easy to use, insert the fake fuse (which I made of spade terminals and copper rod) and clip the aligators to terminals, if there is a short the lamp will glow (instead of blowing a fuse), from there start trackin...

Re: Jis screwdriver

It is however, the only place that I have ever seen, selling or advertising, JIS. I now have four sets of JIS screwdrivers and or bits. FYI, recently I received this e-mail from Randakks advertizing US made JIS screwdrivers. https://www.randakks.com/catalog/product/view/id/13514/s/jis-screwdrivers-...

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.

For the balancers you may hook up them as seen in attached pic, left right in place of the #6 tube, (leave the tube alone) and right side by removing the 5mm bolt circled red. As for the tach I got the signal from the minus side of one ignition coil, it's easy to get at them when you're at carbs, (I...

Re: No rear brake light

That´s the problem whenever they made mods to wiring. By looking at the circuit I can see that turn signals and brake are energized by same lines protected with a 15 Amp fuse, not a 5 Amp. and while in park there shoudn't be power to rear brake light, so I suspect that you have either some crossed w...

Re: GL1000 Tranmission output shaft RPM

The red line in a GL1000 is around 7.5K, so with such a low RPM probably the 1000 trany wont do much good.
Here are the specs of Gl1000.

Re: PC800 headlight

Thank you Scott for the info; I also answered this post on the 20th but in different thread (mi bad) "1994 Honda Pacific Coast" instead of the actual one.
In the end, we were able to retrieve the HID ballast and replace the lamp with a regular one, he's happy finally :D

Re: 1994 Honda Pacific Coast

Thank you Scott for the good info. He also has a '99 GL1500 SE, so knows something about removing parts. He probably needs to remove the front upper tupperware to find the HID ballast and remove it to go back to OEM. I just found a YouTube video showing exactly that operation, I believe that will su...

Re: Having a real problem keeping my 92 1500 cc Gold Wing upright

I thought about that, too, have to measure the lines from ECU when not grounded by the switch. My guess is the ECU has pull-up resistors to either 5 volts or 12, measure that then choose the ratio of the two resistors lighting the LED so the voltage sourced by the LED circuit thru the diodes is sma...
