Re: Chatter at less than 2500 rpm

My 1500 started doing the sane thing at about 2200 to 2500 when I replaced the alternator with one made in China. Got the OEM rebuilt and put back on and problem gone.

Re: Buzz vibration under load

2000 GL1500 SE ~ 40,000 km I have a buzzing sound and vibration that seems to be coming from the engine area when the motor is lugged and working hard Eg: accelerating in a gear too high or when climbing a hill. It’s not a metallic sound - almost sounds like vibrating plastic and it buzzes the foot...

Re: oil leak

That looks like it is leaking from your crank main seal. That's what's underneath that cover. In which case, your timing belts are likely contaminated with oil as well. Remove those three bolts and pull that round cover off, it will reveal the crank pulley. See if you can view oil on the case insid...

OEM Passenger Backrest

Need some help here. I have a 1990 Goldwing 1500 SE and l want to replace the entire seat with a OEM seat and passenger backrest that fits 98-2000. Dimensions are 17 1/2" wide. Are all gl 1500s the same width between rear speaker housing?
Thanks in advance.
