Re: Difficulty starting

Hey Roadhawg. I had the exact same symptoms. I was at a loss. I think my backfire one time was so severe, that it blew a hole in the muffler. I too was at a loss of actions. Ultimately, I checked my auto fill valve and it didn't hold. Replaced that componenet for a mere $160 bucks and it runs like a...

Muting intercom

Greetings fellow Goldwingers Here is a question. I use my 1500 to travel between projects rather extensively. I have a GPS with the voice activation that I have used with my Zumo. Anyway, I have tried putting tape over my mic. That works, albeit sorta dorky. I know there is a device that eliminates ...

Can a backfire blow a hole in a muffler?

Interesting discovery. Noticed a hole in the muffler on the bottom. Not big, thought it was rust like they all probably do eventually. Took the inspection camera in and a much bigger hole was discovered on an interior sheathing that appears that was created by an explosion in the exhaust. I was havi...

Re: Coolant Leak

I had a similar story. My bike started leaking too. the leak was appearing to be the radiator. I took the fan off and maybe it was coming from the top hose. It was tight but a little more out of it. Still leaking... okay, took the radiator out and took to the radiator shop for checking. The guy told...

Has anybody else had intermittent starting problems?

Greetings Fellow Goldwingers, I am perplexed. Perhaps somebody had some intermittent starting issues out there that could help me out. Three times my bike hasn't started. Trying to restart it, I would get huge backfires in the exhausts. Left me stranded each time. Come back and starts again. The 4 t...

Re: A question for you multimeter gurus out there....

HEY Bluewater Hooker, Yeah I have the original OEM alternator on my bike. It has been about 11-12 years since the brushes were replaced. So now, I have a battery that reads about 12.41 volts right after a full charge. However, if I take a voltage reading at starting I get 10.6ish. Which makes me won...

Re: A question for you multimeter gurus out there....

Thanks WA . Given that it appears that it is a bit more complicated with a shunt meter, would reading only the volts be adequate for alternator adequacy like you ct1500 suggested? If I do t get 13.5, is it toast? Mighty obliged......

Re: A question for you multimeter gurus out there....

Thanks ct1500. Yeah the max is 10 amp on these dmm.s. If the voltage alone would give me the adequacy of the charging system. , I am game. I put the charger on the battery. I u destined that the voltage should be 12.8 ish without running and in the 14's while it is if I don't get these readings I gu...

A question for you multimeter gurus out there....

Okay, trying to check my alternator output with my multimeter. The book says to remove the main fuse and the amps and volts. The volts are okay, albeit 12.13, but my amps were jumping way out there. 9 to 3 range. Where I am looking for about 2. My backup did the same. I do t use the harbor freight o...

GL1500 Front Brake Master Cylinder rebuild

Greetings Gents,
Been looking on info on how to rebuild the front master cylinder on a 93 GL1500. Nothing really on the forum in the DIY articles. I did see on though for a Gl1000. Would the procedure be similar? Cheers Mate!

In addition, replace all the rubber I can at that time. Including the vacuum hose underneath the rubber ...

When I was researching a jack/lift, I decided to go all out and get a Handy Industries BOB 1500. Most definitely the best investment I have ever made. You mentioned ceiling height. Yes, fully elevated, I did have to do a truss modification. Cheers
