Re: Bias Ply Tires on an 1800?

I'll stick with the Avon Cobra's. Rad. Tires ride so much better and I have no problem replacing them at 12000 miles.

Re: 1984 gl1200 interstate dash

I would check the temp sending unit on the rad. first. It should have a one wire plug or two. If it has a 2 wire plug turn the key on not running and jump the plug from one side to the other......dose the temp gage peg out all the way? If it dose the gage is good. If it has a one wire plug just grou...

Re: Radio control buttons dead

Today I prepared to go for a ride on the GL1800 and all the radio buttons on the console as well as the left handgrip did not work, i.e., they didn't do anything. I saw Wayne's post about stuck PTT button for the passenger. I checked it and sure enough it was jammed. I unjammed it and presto, every...

Re: Fuel Issue, or something else?

Try flipping your kill switch back and forth a few times. I had this problem on my 1800. There was just enough junk in the switch to make the bike cut out while riding. It would start right up again. By flipping the kill switch a few times back and forth it cleans the contacts a bit and will let the...

Re: engine misfires

DO you know what kind of condition the timing belts are in or when they where last checked?? I have heard of old belts jumping a tooth when motor was shut off. I would do a check on them and make sure all the timing marks are where they should line up.

Re: Clutch problem

Okay - got the proper fluid, took the reservoir apart. I put just a bit of fluid in the unit - both in the bottom and a bit in what looks like a diaphragm. Question - does the fluid go in the black diaphragm only or in the reservoir itself? I should have initially advised - I am mechanically challe...

Re: Clutch problem

If that dose not work try bleeding the clutch system. There my be air in the lines or the brake oil (clutch fluid) may be old and needs t...

All most every bike I have had I have done the fan switch tech tip. All you need is some wire,clips and a switch (lighted or not. Just locate the sending unit in the rad.

Re: fuel dumping from carb, coming out rt. exhaust

Just for the heck of it try tapping on the float bowls of each carb.....sounds like a float is sticking in one or more of the carbs. Some times taps on them will free the float.

Re: 2003 1800 ECT fault

Sounds like you still have a simple problem causing your issues. There are 2 things you can by pass with a jumper wire to see if the problem goes away. Try unplugging the eng kill switch where it connects to the harness. Take a jumper wire across the harness plug. If it keeps running then the kill s...

Hopefully I'm not speaking too soon but it looks like I got lucky and the easy fix worked. I cleaned the kill switch, and all the other switches in the rt handlebar group.

Re: Computer Fuel Injection 1986 GL1200 SEI

You might want to try some sea foam to help clean the injectors and the rest of the system. If the gas was that bad the whole system may be plugged up. just keep starting it and let it run as long as it will to get the sea foam threw out the system. I am sure some one else may have a idea or too also.
