Re: 1996 GL1500A won,t turn off with key ?...

I spent a good deal of time studying the diagrams because you stated earlier it quits when ign/cruise relay pulled. Was I mistaken? And the results with key off?

Re: 1996 GL1500A won,t turn off with key ?...

I have replaced the ignition relay with a new Honda relay. Also found out that when I turn the key off and it continues to run I can pull every single fuse in the fuse box and the two fuses in the relay box and it continues to run and I can also pull every single relay except the ignition relay and...

Re: Clutch Kill Switch?

Do you hear two clicks when pulling lever? First switch click is for cruise cancel, wire colors Blk/Yel-Grn/Blu. Second switch click pulled in to grip is start in gear feature Grn/Wht-Grn/Red wire coloring. Check for correct wiring.

Re: URGENT BRAKE PROBLEM

Only one bleed screw open at a time. Keep the reservoir full and open the rear. Gravity more often than not can start a flow in a few minutes without any pedal. Then a couple bleeds at rear with pedal. If no flow with gravity then bleed rear first. Move on to the front, bleed that with pedal then re...

Re: Coolant cold leak... Yes one more!

Small correction. The cylinder misbehaving is the #3, the middle one on the left side... Not that it changes anything at this point... Yes it does. :) That cylinder is the #4 as sitting on bike and it has one, possibly two vacuum ports, one horizontal and one possible vertical for your year. Vacuum...

Re: Coolant cold leak... Yes one more!

Did check for the cross over hose on the Babbitts fiches. Looks like the hose is Diameter 7.5 mm bulk fuel hose. Would a 5/16 (7.9 mm diameter) hose fit? I replaced the 2 clamps as well for sure.Thanks. 5/16 is the best alternative to metric. I use Gates. https://www.oreillyauto.com/detail/b/safety...

I now see it is the pump outlet side. :) Give it doses of penetrating spray and twist, pry and pull till free after bolt removal. Might be easier to remove with hose still attached, pulling on it too.

Re: Compressor runs, but readout shows 0 psi

Is the rear suspension bottoming out? While sitting on bike off the stands the rear suspension should go up and down if the air shock works and is getting air using the increase and decrease buttons. Do you feel the back end raising and lowering? If not then the compressor, lines, valves or air shoc...

Re: 1996 GL1500A won,t turn off with key ?...

With any ignition switch, off is always off with no connections to anything so I believe the switch itself has nothing to do with it. Does the one key open all the locks and work the ign switch, if so the switch prolly was not replaced. Some backwoods hack more likely fixed it their way by jumping a...

Re: Fan Switch

The minute amount of warm air coming out the vents is more novelty than anything else. The SE's with the knob and exhaust heated air might actually work though? On cool/cold days the engine just doesn't get hot enough to transfer much heated air through the radiators. Thermostat opens for a blip and...

Re: Turn Key, nothing on screen & no clicks

Turn the key back to the lock (park) position and see if the taillights come on. Remove tail/main relay, one relay pin should be hot with key off and one other should be hot with key on. If you don't get the hot with key on then somewhere between the 30A fuse of relay A and fuse box has an open circ...

Re: Turn Key, nothing on screen & no clicks

To the right of battery is a 55A "dog bone fuse" check for voltage on both ends. While in the neighborhood check the 30A fuse for voltage in a holder attached to starter relay A to the right of the dog bone fuse. Both those fuses are hot at all times. If voltage present on the dog bone go to fuse bo...

I didn't think a bad relay could possibly cause this kind of issue either, Have checked the 30 amp fuse that is part of the connector and it isn't blown either. No blown fuse is not a valid test, the wiring for and around that 30A fuse holder which feeds the ignition switch has been known for heati...

Re: Dead Wing

No, a malfunctioning relay A will not cause complete loss of power. On the battery (+) side of that relay is where a 30A fuse gets power from and that connection could cause all loss of power. What relay was tested with the how and what failed exactly?

The cruise control on my 99 Aspy is intermittent at best. The on/off switch tends to be temperamental but I also tend to leave it "on". The only times I've even touched that switch is when the cruise control won't engage. There are times when I start the bike, get on the highway, hit the 'set' butt...

Re: 1982 gl 1100 missing help appreciated

What happens when pulling a plug wire partially off is a build up of voltage in the coil when the spark does not have its usual easy path to ground. When a cylinder fires better with a plug wire partially removed it is almost always due to a fouled plug. The normal firing voltage cannot give a good ...
