Re: Not riding? How do you keep yourself busy?

All that space in your garage!!
How do you do it?
In my garage space is so tight to make full use of my lathe I had to cut a hole in the adjacent cupboard.

Re: Rear Brake Pedal Lever Height Issue

Picture of my brake pedal with a bolt on brake pedal pad.
The extra bit of height does help but the chrome does not last and the rubber pads come off (easy to replace though).

Re: Rear Brake Pedal Lever Height Issue

I wasn’t happy with the excess brake pedal travel on my ‘95 SE, exacerbated by having a Sidecar brake on the system as well. I did everything you’ve done getting a little improvement each time ‘ till it was tolerable but not quite “right”. Elsewhere on goldwingdocs there’s a post saying pump up the ...

GL1500 antenna repair

As if there isn’t enough trouble in this world I folded down my radio antenna a couple of days ago and it fell off. The bottom of the mast had snapped off where it hinges. Quick search of eBay revealed some antennas across the pond but the shipping charges were £50-60 never mind the cost of the ante...

1995 GL1500 carbs another question

Hi folks, Is there a special tool to turn the mixture screws? On my ‘89 Wing You could use an ordinary flat bladed screw driver but the screws ha tags on them to restrict the amount of adjustment. The screws in my ‘95 Wing are round with a slight flat on on one part, painted white in the picture. I ...

1995 GL1500 carbs. A bit missing?

’m refitting the carb’ assembly. There is a 3 way hose connector at the rear of the carbs taking 2 large and one small hose. The 2 large (One has the number six, or nine, on it) come from vents in the venturies, I can’t see where the small hose comes from. What puzzles me is that the centre of the c...

It’s worth a look.
The tube wall is on the thin side for a seat lug let alone a Sidecar mount.

Trying to go out as little as possible here as well. I’ve changed the trailing arm bearings on the sidecar and replaced all the fence panels on one side of the garden and now I’m getting bored, and that is only after a week. Those who say they know reckon it could be months before things get better,...

Re: Cruise Control Failure

Cancel switch or potentiometer (only Honda would replace a simple micro switch with a complicated lump like that, which still gives trouble) if the contacts are dirty your cruise control doesn’t work.

Re: Cruise Control Failure

My 1995 1500 SE has one, picture attached and there is a post I made about cleaning it on this website somewhere.
I found two faults as I recollect. The brake pedal switch was out of adjustment and this potentiometer.
Cruise control has beeb fine ever since.

Re: Cruise Control Failure

The throttle cable from your twist grip goes to a potentiometer and then another cable goes from that to the carbs. Dirt and grease can build up on the internal contacts. The manual says do not clean but I sprayed mine with electrical cleaner and the cruise control now works fine.
