Re: Running rich at idle

Well I ran the bike today for a while with the air filter off to watch the vacuum slides operate and they do. I did notice that the left acc pump does not squirt - the right does. Also, when I pulled the gas cap, the tank was pressurized. Is that normal or would that effect anything relating to over...

Re: Running rich at idle

Thanks Virgil. I ordered a fuel valve kit and I will pull a few plugs this afternoon. I just replaced the air filter but those mice can be a problem. I will also check the slides on the carbs and report back.

Re: Fuel smell after riding ?

Hi Danny, I'm having a similar problem. Will the bike start easily when warm? Does it smoke on startup? If you don't notice any fuel smell when riding and your fuel mileage is ok, rebuild the fuel valve. Its easy and cheap.

Running rich at idle

Howdy fellas, So a few months ago, I got an 88 running after years of sitting. I cleaned the carbs, tank and replaced all filters and fluids and fuel pump. She fired up and ran great for a few weeks and 500 miles. Just the other day I noticed a strong gas smell occasionally. Now its all the time at ...

Re: Fuel sender interchange

Thats great information, thank you. I test fit the 1995 sender and even though its a different shape, it fits well and works better than the old one. I will attempt to calibrate it later. Thanks again.

Fuel sender interchange

Does anyone know if a 90-00 fuel sender will work on an 88? I have an 88 with a bad sender and the later ones are plentiful but a slightly different shape bend.

Re: OEM replacement windshield

Thanks for information! I was able to polish using some compound and it will do for now. I may decide to replace it but at least I can see through it now!
Thanks again.

OEM replacement windshield

Ive tried and tried to polish the windshield but its no use. So I want to replace it but I really like the stock profile. Can anyone suggest a cheap alternative? I have a spare tulsa billboard lying around from a previous wing but its just too big. Thanks for any suggestions.

Re: 195/75R16 LT tire on a GL1500

Personally I wouldn't go any bigger than the austone. I tried the austone and it rubbed. Bummed because I wanted to darkside my 90SE but wasn't meant to be. Ive talked to guys that have run it and it doesnt rub so its a gamble.

Re: Whats wrong with my cruise control?

Did you clean the switches yet? When my cruise wouldnt work, it ended up being the speedometer cable. It was bouncing around too much to hold a steady speed for the CC and it would kick right off.

Re: 94 GL1500A fuel filter replacement

When I first got my 90 a while back I was driving it home and it slowly lost power on the highway and died. Scary!
Went home and got the trailer and brought her home the hard way. Well when i serviced the bike I found the fuel filter to be totally clogged. Musta had 100k on it.

Re: 1988 fuel pump test

Ok, well it stopped leaking. Running well now. Seems to surge at low rpms? Other than that, good to go. Interestingly, when I took it apart, one of the fuel lines was routed over the accel pump so it couldnt move. Not sure if it had ever worked. Well, its fixed now. Yes, i did keep the pump. Why?
