Re: Noisy alternator

Yes the nocking sound is coming from the alternator. I put my stock alternator back on and no noise.
I'm thinking the higher amp alternator is able to put out more current at idle and it's the backlash making the sound.

Noisy alternator

I installed a new 90 amp alternator on my 1988 gl1500 also new rubber dampers. Now when I start it when engine is cold it makes a nocking sound. After the engine is warmed up all is quiet. Has anyone else ran into this issue? Thank You

Re: Having a real problem keeping my 92 1500 cc Gold Wing upright

I have a 1988 1500 it has drivers foot pegs, It is a lot more manageable than the 1990 1500 that I had previously, witch had drivers floor boards. Making a wider stance of your legs.

Re: Fuel capacity

My low fuel lite never comes on Except before I start the bike. When the gauge shows in the reserve for a while I stop to fill up and look in the tank with a flash light . I see just a small puddle in the bottom of the tank. Is there more fuel that I can't see, for the reserve? Thank you for the rep...

Re: Has your Wing ever left you near stranded....

My 1988 Gl1500 with 31000 miles on it. Left me stuck no spark.
Cruise control lite would not go on.
At restaurant and took kill switch apart. Screw holding one of the two wires on kill switch loosened up and lost contact. Tighten screw, reassemble and good to go.
