Spark plug wires and caps

I am about to get started on my winter list. I was just wondering as a lot is coming off, if I should consider replacing the wiring for the spark plugs. The bike is 1990 and I am quite sure they are original. Starts well and run well as far as I can say, even so it is the only GL1500 that I have eve...

Re: Cold coolant leak saga...

A crack!... I did not consider that possibility :o I am going to remove the carbs as part of my winter list to have them ultrasonic cleaned. While everything is opened, I am now thinking to replace that part as well as replacing the O ring in the cooling tube. I bought them when I was looking for my...

Re: Cold coolant leak saga...

Well as I said before I did not replace it... I took a piece of glass with 220 emery cloth on it to "resurface" the cover. Looked real good once I was done. It took quite a bit to have a flat surface again. Ran all summer (7500kms) without any trace of a leak. About a month ago we had a cold front. ...

Re: how to access air/fuel mixture screw (s) ??

With Christmas around the corner, I was considering getting this Motion tool? I have tried using a LONG screw driver with a D bit but as CT1500 indicated: Forget it... I am going to take the carbs out to clean them in an ultrasonic bath so it is done right this time. When doing the adjustment, you a...

I think you're talking about the air shock absorber...
If so look at the attached link.

Re: carb sync help

aj1500, could you give us more details as to how you modify the air mixture screws. I really like the idea on putting an extension to them so that we can easily adjust them without having to reach deep inside.

Re: honda goldwing gl15000rear brake master cylinder

This port is for the rear caliper. It is the pressure "regulated" one. Mine was like that when I rebuilt it a while ago... I am confident that it is the original master cylinder. So if it is good enough for Honda to let it go, it is good enough for me. Clearly a manufacturing error as the machining ...

I would take the belts cover off and make sure that those belts are still there... Just in case a valve is stuck in there... then try the 5th gear!
