Re: Oh boy, right bank running rich...

I took airfilter housing off, slides were ok and moved nicely. I blowed air through vent tube (tube to mouth and blowed myself, not very compressed air flow :D ) They were open. It still idled bad, couldn’t see any fuel dripping. Shut off the engine, twisted throttle to activate acceleration pump, s...

Re: where does this hose go

Looks like drain tube under airfilter housing.
Connects to a part nr 5


This pic is -97 model, maybe same in -93?
-88 is different, tube connects to straight to airfilter housing.

Re: putting the rear tire back on

Hi there! I assume you have air pressure off from rear shocks... If shock tries to force swing arm a bit downwards, bolt will not line up as it’s now open and out of threads. Does it help if you try to force shock’s lower end upwards a bit (maybe a large flat screw driver etc suitable tool) and try ...

Re: GL1500 Running Rough with Fouled Plugs

Check the choke plunger that it really goes off in carburetor when you set choke off in the handlebar. I had that few years ago in left carb, it sounded like missing spark. Just a bit open is enough... For this reason, I have placed a spring to choke plate (where choke cable is attached in the carbs...
