Re: carbs stall

You seem to have an 'intake' leak. From the heads to the carbs check each junction for a leak.

Re: 1984 GL 1200a

I think the 'kill' switch might need to be taken apart and cleaned, could be the culprit.

Re: Gas in Oil 1986 1200 Goldwing

Yes, try running 1 oz. of cheap ATF per 1 gallon of gasoline. ATF is a great cleaner and may clean the float seals without having to rebuild the carbs. I carry a 6 oz. bottle of ATF and every other fillup I add it as a preventative maintenance. When I first started doing this it was every tank fillu...

Re: Air Shock sys. on 1986 GL-1200

If you don't have the version with the compressor (or do) and have air leaks there are a few 'O' rings that could have dried out and are leaking on the air tubing (or the tubing is leaking) from both shocks. It could also be that the seals inside the shocks are leaking and the shocks need to be re-b...
