Re: 98 Goldwing Opinions

A starter should last a very long time. ;) Could be it needs reverse gears in which case it might not be such a bargain, a roll of the dice. The owner could simply have the starter replaced and get much more money for it???????

Re: left turn bias

If the pull to the left was there when you bought it then it was likely wrecked and something is bent. You will be lucky to get 10k miles out of the Stinkos.

Re: 4 wire harness id help

What year and model do you have? If you don't have the radio fader knob/CB (lighted) switches on left bar then those wires are likely used for that (SE) option.

Backfire through the intake on right side could be a crossed/misfiring plug wire. Plug wires are numbered 1,3 and 5 for right side front to back, check that they are correct.

Re: Oil spray from exhaust pipe

I started my bike up after she sat for the last month while I found her a fresh set of carbs. After some trouble getting the carb floats adjusted properly she started right up at a pretty high idle (2k-3k rpms). I would have busted out the sync to get the idle rpm down but I'm pretty sure she spray...

Unfortunately the issue still is not resolved. Not sure where to go from here. I cannot get it started unless it is above 64 degrees. Normally I can turn on the key, see all lights on the dash flash, push down then choke and then I am able to turn it over with no issue. If it is below 65 degrees, I...

Also remove, check and reinstall the ECU connector. Because the real connector is inside the black connector, and it is sometimes found to be loose or disconnected.

Re: 96 gl1500 no spark

Am I correct in assuming it must have been running at some point in your possession to know the clutch and carbs were bad and doing this work before knowing if the engine ran? How much of this bike has been taken apart?

OEM parts? Generic chinlee kits can be hit or miss. Your float valve is probably not seating correctly more so if only the needles were replaced.

Re: It just died sitting at a stop light

To the right of battery is starter relay A, attached to it is a 30A fuse and holder. Inspect it for burning/heat giving it and the wiring a wiggle test for repeat symptoms.
