Re: 1990 SE Questions

They are cornering lights, they come on with the turn signals on the side the signal is on. Ebay or a salvage on the parts.

Good set of 1100 carbs for sale

Working good, no leaks. Just went through and cleaned the low speed passages, again for probably the 3rd time since I've had these. Synched to my test engine and running good as of now. I don't think $225 shipped 48 states is out of line at all. A lot of non working sets on ebay are close to if not ...

That's unfortunate, I'd hoped the full resolution figure would be available..
I can see the pictures just not at the right angle. It may be just a reflection but the second one from the bottom looks like it has a worn spot.

I can't see the rocker arm pads well enough. Do they have a smooth radius with no horizontal grooves?

Re: '83 Aspencade Tach reads zero

It appears there are signals from both coils going to the instrument panel, a yellow/blue & a yellow/green wire.(I have such a hard time following those lines on those spaghetti wiring diagrams I could be wrong) You might check those for continuity to the yellow and blue wires at the coils. Other th...

1.5v on the green white wire? And the turn signals and horn work? The green/yellow goes to the rear light assembly.

Re: Switching out a GL1100 "tank" panels for GL1000 "tank" panels.

I'm not going to say impossible but it's a whole different animal. The 1100 false tank comes off in 1 piece and the 1000 has separate side panels that hinge to the inner piece that has all the electrical components mounted to it as well as the coolant tank and I doubt it would fit the 1100 frame.

It is very difficult to check a TPS with a digital meter, they are never steady enough to be able to see the place where the fault is.

Thanks for that, In that case I wont consider it! it just seemed to me that it was kind of superfluous since when the rad gets too hot the fan comes in to cool it down and would cool the carbs as well most likely??

It is a heat shield to keep the radiator heat off the carbs, they get too much heat as is. I know of no good reason to leave out out.

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

Can you remove the rocker arms without pulling the head? I was under the impression that the axles where the rocker arms are on are pressed into the aluminum 'housings', and if you take these housings off, the camshaft will fall out? I'll try your suggestion. Yes, you have to take the belts off and...

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

Why pull the heads? Just turn it a little at a time and look at the cam lobes. If anything is questionable remove the rocker arms to get a better look.

I can change an 1800 air filter faster than you can change a 1500 rear tire & an 1800 rear tire faster than you can change a 1500 air filter probably. They did drop the ball on getting to the 1800 clutch slave bleeder I do admit.

any advice on sealing without pulling apart . devcon , plumbers putty , some type of gas resistant sealer etc??? thinking of wrapping tubes with thin line of sealant and pushing in like caulk. any one ever try

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.

Re: Goldwing 1500 1988

Did you synchronize the carbs? With the engine running and the air filter out look down in the carbs and see if there is fuel bubbling out of the main jets. The mixture adjustments will do very little toward fixing a bad over rich or lean condition.

Re: Question on overheating

I actually unsoldered the bottom tank of a radiator to be able to rod the tubes out. Apparently someone had put stop leak of some kind in it and very few of the tubes had free flow through them. Seemed fine running on the stand but overheated riding about 10 miles. If yours is not too bad plug the o...
