85 ltd wont start

I have been having problems with my fuel injection for several months now. It would run fine then would not start. I would have to remove the seat and reset the wires, grn/brn and the large bundle as well. This has worked a few times. Yesterday I went out and no fuel pump. Pulled it all apart, and I...

Right after i was done, the battery would charge just fine while riding but after it would sit for a few days the battery would be dead...

Re: GL1200 LTD alternator conversion.

Like I said , many thanks to vern38 for his brackets. I just measured mine to be about the same size and they work really well. Also my alternator is marginally smaller than the pulley I got from england. Overall my costs were well under $200 dollars. I consider this a "HUGE" win in my book. Also ke...

Re: GL1200 LTD alternator conversion.

What I did was grind the black vent back . I had to take the 3 ribs down pat half way in the middle area of the black plastic. Was kinda a trial and error. Did it 4 different times to get just enough ground off to fit over the alternator. Now she fits real good. On changing the alternator pulley, I ...

GL1200 LTD alternator conversion.

Got my conversion done a few weeks ago. It is running ok. I have a problem when I encounter a long wait in traffic. My RPM stay low so it seems that my battery is taking the brunt of the voltage and ends up losing charge sometimes. I did the 1 wire conversion, but I am looking for a way to wire the ...

Re: 1985 LTD wont start

Found the problem a while ago just forgot to update....
The wiring connector located on the rear fender, under the seat was loaded with fine dirt causing no connection.
Cleaned it real well, runs great again.

Re: 1985 LTD wont start

Alright, I got my new fuel pump in today.
Replaced it and no go......
When I go to start there is no sound from the fuel pump engaging.
Now it looks like the fuel pump was not the problem.
Any guess or information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Washandy98664

Re: 1985 LTD wont start

I took the battery out this morning and cleaned all connections and the dog bone fuses. I finally heard the fuel pump engaging and it started . Came back later and no fuel pump sound and no start. At this point I would have to say my fuel pump is bad. Got the bike early last year, did all the basics...

1985 LTD wont start

I have an 85 LTD that wont start. I last ran it about 3 weeks ago and it was fine. I go out to start it and no Tail light and no fuel pump engaging for a few seconds. Check all the fuses in the faux tank in the fuse block, but all are fine. Been reading that some people are reporting a fuse in the l...

Re: GL1200 Turn Signals won’t work

I had the problem of no turn signals, I just ran a ground from the relay under the seat.
May want to look at that.
I know you did the conversion but these older bikes are notorious for bad grounds.

Re: 85 LTD cruise control.

I replaced the switch at the front brake.
Still have the same problem of working once in a while.
Looking for the ground for this circuit as well as for the high beams. That also works once in a while.

Re: Trip Computer Problem - '85 GL1200 LTD

My trip computer only has a couple of lights that work.
The map of the USA lights up and flashes but thats about it.
I had seen that there is reference to some fuses.
Once again where are they located?

85 LTD cruise control.

This cruise control will work sometimes .
Most times I go to engage it there is nothing. Other times it will work just fine.
Is there a relay or something that is hit or miss.
Amy help is appreciated.

No dealer, just my dumb a....
Been looking all over the garage tonight but to no avail.
Not quite sure what to look for.
One of those things when I took it off I thought I heard something hit the ground.
Now I know it was something I need to finish the front tire.

Re: front axle

What I am asking is there a spacer on the right side??
I just don't know what goes between the wheel and the end of the axle.
