Re: GL 1500 low idle and rough running

Have you opened the "gas door" and adjusted the idle using the knurled knob? It should adjust your idle to the 850- 950 RPM area for a smoother idle. 1.) Consider using a Seafoam (2oz. per gallon of gasoline) mix for the next 3-4 "fill-ups". It will do a good job of "cleaning" that fuel system, , an...

Re: Clutch/Transmission issue?

When you dealt with the clutch reservoir, did you happen to remember to gently pry off the shiny silver "tab" and use a torch tip to clean/ream out the return line? That gets full of "gunk" and makes the clutch do some strange things. DOT 4 fluid in clutch, right?? You say that you changed oil when ...

Re: OEM stock alternator output

The OEM alternator is not a high-output alternator and can quickly become "under-powered" when numerous electrical add-ons are installed. There are a handful of manufacturers that make 90-95 amp output alternators that will fit the 1500's. Compufire is a common high output replacement for the OEM al...

Re: 1992 GL1500A cranks but wont fire up sometimes

I'm thinking "excessive Pressure in gas tank", , , , if the "vent" on the gas cap isn't working as it should, especially at 27 yr. old, gunk and rust will inhibit it from working right. A quick and easy fix could be as simple as soaking (submerging) that gas cap in Seafoam overnight, then blow it cl...

Re: Position Light as headlights?

I'm not sure that the lights would be "adjustable" enough to avoid being considered "out of adjustment" by your local LEO.
