Re: Fuel Issue, or something else?

Thanks for the EECS info, haven't checked that as yet. I've got it disassembled down to the gas tank, but have pretty much left it alone since October...... got cold here in Kansas and I didn't know whether to trust riding it until I've found the culprit of the problem. Hate it that I have a $20k ma...

Re: Fuel Issue, or something else?

So did you siphon fuel out after it was on the trlr to Honda? If I'm reading this right it only acts up when the tank is full. So seems to me, for some reason, you are drawing fuel down the tank vent line through the evap canister up into the purge valve to the engine...So you must of been getting s...

Re: Fuel Issue, or something else?

No mice in the intake.... it ran beautifully 15 miles home, running 60-65 mph with only a quarter tank of gas. Filled it up, and started running terrible again. Humid here, 78 degrees, no valve noise, using synthetic 10w40 motorcycle oil. Thinking maybe the fuel level sensor? Intermittent fuel pump ...

Fuel Issue, or something else?

Got a problem on my 2008, GL1800 trike. I let it sit for about a month and a half, which I know is a no-no. When I fired it back up, ran it around the neighborhood and it sputtered, quit, fired back up and ran, but not very well. I thought at first it might be bad gas, so I drained the tank, and par...

Re: gps updates

Just got out of creating a new account on the Garmin site for Honda GL1800 Navi models, and here is the latest info: You can upgrade your maps on the 2006-2008 GL1800 by purchasing the updated #010-10678-50 part number which is a CF 2gb card for $95. It is the 2014.40 map upgrade. I thought that was...

Re: wing front end wobble

I'm no expert by any means, but have heard that installing a slight rake on the front end helps with that wobble. The 4.5% rake, or the 6% rake might help, but I think its slightly more expensive than trying a new tire. So trying the new tire first, with dynabeads for balancing is a good idea. If th...

CD player on Champion Trike conversion

I bought a used 2008 GL1800 Champion Trike converted Goldwing, and even though the console has a CD on it, I cannot find the CD player anywhere. Some say its supposed to be in the upper trunk, under a second door, but have checked there and nothing that I can see is there. Anyone know? The conversio...
