Re: Help broken down at Gran Coulee Dam Washington

To me it sounds like your starter got fried. When it is removed, smell it ... it will probably have a strong, pungent electrical burnt smell if opened up. This happens if the starter continued spinning after the engine is started. The start button is release, but the starter does not turn off ... it...

Re: GPS screen red and only red

Are you aware that there are color settings for that in you Set-Up screens.

If that does not work, got some Battle-Vision glasses as seen on TV.

Re: 1800 driveability issues

As always, compression, spark, and fuel.

Assuming the compression is good, pull the spark plugs and see how they are burning. Then check the spark to all.

Thanks. I actually called US Paint and they told me that they're not into motorcycle paint anymore.

So that you can have an answer the next time Rob steps in, he is probably asking you to do this test. However, for this test, you may not have to remove/pull loose the right saddle bag. You will have to remove the right side cover. See picture in your Service Manual ... in my manual 15-11. 12.Actuat...

mileage, and year ???

If it's a GL1800 from 2001-05, a new meter lens is cheap. The next question will probably be if the FI light comes on.

Re: Ecu for 2001 gl 1800

I'd recommend that you purchase new. There are stories out there where a used one seemed like a great choice. Here are a couple of reasons not to buy used: - unless the ECM was recently replaced, all 2001-03 ECMs are failing. In short, they are failing because "their DNA" says that their end is near...

Re: Swingarm error

A solid axel Champion uses an unmodified OEM rear shock system. The only difference is that the bottom of the rear shock mounts to a modified swing-arm instead of the OEM swing arm. Everything else is the same. Make sure the battery tests good, and that the cables are clean and tight. Pull the right...

... fuses all appear to be good. Any thoughts? In the world of electricity, "appear to be good" is often not good enough. Use a test light or a VOM (volt ohm meter) to know for sure, and recheck those fuses. Your camera may have overloaded the circuit and blown a fuse. Also, be sure your battery co...

Re: Service Manual - anywhere besides Helm?

You can order them from a Honda dealer, but all manuals ultimately come from Helm. However, a Honda warehouse may have one, but probably not. I believe they've been on bo for a while, so all Honda warehouses are probably out of them.
