Re: GL1000 weaving, wobbling, wallowing

You said that you checked the tyre pressure but have you checked the tyres for bulges or out of shape buckled wheels.

Also I have noticed you posted about wobble head shake and handling problems a few years back is this the same bike?

Re: #3 & #4 plugs no fire

Change the coils to 3/4 even though you checked then they still can be faulty

Re: New coils with old points

On my 1978 I had the same problem I could not get the split timing set up right. the only way I could get it right was to file some off one pickup to close then up so I could time it. I believe this only happens on the 78/9 models as the cam timing is different.

Re: Rear shocks, interchange

A Valkrie is about 50kg lighter than a Gl1500. you would have been better off getting a standard gl1500 coil shock and fitting that

I would do a compression test. that would show up bad valves, rings, gasket.

Re: If it sounds like the valves are too loose...

NO, the slides are doing absolutely nothing at idle. Reading from the originale post. it say the noise is. When it is between 3 & 5k. Thats not idle. Yes. Unfortunately for me I now also hear it at idle. So that excludes the carbs? Is this since you put it back together after checking the cams?

Sorry, I had taken the 1st disc out of a clutch pack I had on the shelf and measured it. I went back and took out the second friction disc, it measures 120mm inside. I hadn't noticed that first one being different.
Thats ok. thanks for rechecking.

Thanks.

Re: Use an auto tire on the front wheel of a trike?

I have just had fitted a Avon cobra trike tyre on my 1500. not sure if you do notice any difference. but I didn't have any handling problems in the 1st place.

from what I can see is the tyre has a very slight flat profile.

Re: New fuel pump not working, 94 1500 esp

The fuel pump only powers up when you press the starter button on later models.

To test disconnect the wire to the pump and run a 12volt feed from the battery
