Looks like I've been barking up the wrong tree, thanks for the help guys.
Avoid confusion..
The 88/89 are different than the 90 and up.There are some electrical changes.
What problem are you having and verify for us the year.

Re: Hydraulic clutch not engaging

If your clutch lever feels like it's working but the clutch isn't releasing I'd suggest it's due to clutch plate "stiction". Some methods to free them... Start the engine (in neutral) and warm it up while holding the clutch lever in. Center stand the bike and start it in gear with the clutch lever i...

Re: SHOUT OUT TO FELLOW WINGERS OUT THERE !! LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WHO HAS A EURO WING WITH THE EXTRA LIGHT SWITCH ON

If all you want to do is turn off the head lights...... Verify that the switch (the removable one on the bottom of the cluster) is a 2 wire on/off switch.. Remove the plastic trim under the left handle bar and separate the individual cables.One of them has a couple of wires in it.Simply cut the blue...

Re: Time for a 3D printer?

I did not make that adapter cover.That was injected molded by another person. It was a mold not a printed part. I did not make one.Its size is larger than my printer capability. My personal 3D printer is just 8x8x8. Now it's possible that a "insert" bezel could be designed to fit in place of the ori...

Re: 1992 gl 1500 turns over no spark, no fuel

Same problem different history.
Start with the basics.
Pulse coils plugged back into the harness?
Voltage across the ECM module wires?
Sidestand wires hooked back up?

Re: Looking for input on issue B4 buying 99 Wing.

I understand.The symptoms can lead you to different areas.Take heart tho.65k miles???It's barely broke in..The rest is a result of 21years.
If you can't get a positive confirmation of the problems,you could "price reduce" it for the worst case scenario.

Re: Looking for input on issue B4 buying 99 Wing.

My 88 had a miss.One bad ignition coil.Very weak spark compared to the others. Another fellow found his miss was low compression.He/we determined that a valve was sticking open a bit.Rotating the engine backwards a few times over a couple of days relieved the trapped oil pressure on the hydraulic la...

Ok.The 4 terminal solenoid.

Two terminals operate the solenoid and the other two connect to t...

Re: 89 starter relay

Is this the correct part your gonna replace?(color coded wires)?
And can you post a picture or more details about what your gonna use.
The 4 pin relays can be different in the wiring pinout.

If it's a 88.the ECM does not power the fuel pump.Honda started that in 90.

Re: Boxer engine knock Subaru

Well I just couldn't leave well enough alone. That "piston slap" didn't set right. One day I started it and the knocking was so loud I almost shut it off.It did quiet down. 2 days later I started it and there was absolutely no knocking at all.Stone quiet. Next week it's back the way it was..some kno...

Re: What Were The Worst Riding Conditions You Ever Experienced?

Just picked up my Gl1000 for the ride home in March.Halfway there on a seldom driven road was a swath of hail a foot deep and half mile wide.
Waited for 2 hours till a truck plowed a path.

Re: Boxer engine knock Subaru

I think so.If I run to Walmart and back the knock is completely gone.I can only speculate that it's piston slap.With a 172k miles,it's just normal wear.I suppose I could yank the motor and short block it but it is just a $3000 car.Already dropped $500 in it.Dont think I'll rebuild the block.Probably...

I guess I'm done.Replacing the plugs stopped the loud cold startup knock and has left me with...piston slap..Not much else to do but run it.

Re: Boxer engine knock Subaru

Both red ones were on the same side(the noisy side).The plugs angle at about 80°.
There's no evidence of any corrosion anywhere around the plugs,just the red tint on one side.
Keep in mind,I have run Seafoam and MMO through it.
