Re: Horror! @@ Poor Dixie :-(

Yes!!! the "Kick in the Butt" is certainly the Go! The only sympathy required is for Dixie,

She is bounding along happily now, as soon as she can walk on bitumen and roughish surfaces I will see if she hops back into the chair.

All the Best to Everyone, Peter.

Horror! @@ Poor Dixie :-(

On the 15th of April I picked up a small roll of carpet to line my other sidecar with, I wedged it in the 88 chair next to Dixie, on the way home I turned right at a set of traffic lights, the carpet rolled over and bounced Dixie out of the sidecar, and stupid me didn't notice for a couple of hundre...

Re: 93 1500 SE Carburetor

Here are a couple of pics of my 90SE, it is a Californian, thus all the extra pipework, I guess they are similar.

I think it goes to the diaphragm valve on the left of the bike?

I removed all my obsolete and unwanted pipework and blanked that port off.

Re: HELP! - 92 to 94 GWE [A] carbies

Many thanks Gentlemen,

I had a feeling it was something like that, so I will just blank it out.

Here is how to check your Hot Air Control Valve. I removed mine completely, it never gets that cold here in the Oz.

Re: GL1500 carburetor identification

This may help, looks like an 88, mine was a GEA [ B ] but mine was an import from Japan.

I since converted my machine to a 93 carbs, air sensor and ignition black box.

Re: Diaphragm remove

They are one piece. They are also expensive around $300au each.

Be careful when buying new ones or even used ones off e-bay as there are two types, two holes and three holes.

They may be interchangeable, I don't know?
