Re: Odd carb issue... Slides flutter Video included

I have never seen the fuel filter fill up. When I have looked at it is only been partially full. Have you checked the fuel petcock to make sure it is passing fluid properly? There is a procedure in the service manual for testing the fuel petcock, maybe you should try it. I'll look into it when I ge...

Re: Odd carb issue... Slides flutter Video included

After completing several other checks per the shop manual, most everything checks out as it should. Something I have noticed is that the fuel filter never seems to fill up to what I believe should be a full level. It does not seem to fill up to the level of the outlet (I know it runs up hill a littl...

Re: Odd carb issue... Slides flutter Video included

I have been wondering about that too, it's one of the few things I have not checked. Might do that tomorrow if I get a chance. Simple enough to do.

True about having the air cleaner off, but even with the air cleaner on I still had the same issue.

Re: Odd carb issue... Slides flutter Video included

I had a chance to work with my bike on Sunday. This was after a second cleaning and removing the pilot needles and cleaning that circuit as well, plus replacing the o-rings in that circuit as well. Before starting I also decided to check the fuel pump output which flowed much more than needed (3.5oz...

Re: Odd carb issue... Slides flutter Video included

The bike actually idles at the normal 800 RPM's with some surging. Sorry the video was short, the bike was not up to operating temp at the time I made the video the "choke" was still slightly activated. I have tried to ride "like an old man" and there is just no bottom end torque, it's difficult to ...

Re: Odd carb issue... Slides flutter Video included

I wish it ran well. This is my issue. When they flutter like that the engine just goes flat no power is being made. Actually if you hold the throttle at about 3000RPM or so, the engine will die. The RPM's just being to fall until the engine stalls, but it will start back with a simple bump of the sw...

Odd carb issue... Slides flutter Video included

Good afternoon all I decided to start a new thread to highlight a new problem I have with my bike. I am dumbfounded by this, I have not seen this issue before, ever. I have limited experience with CV style carbs. They have been cleaned twice all passages. The pilots have also been taken out cleaned ...

Re: Now that it's running... surge problems

Also purchased a removal tool for the pilot needles took them out cleaned the passages and added the new o-rings. Set them as per the shop manual the put them back together and back on the...

Re: Now that it's running... surge problems

You haven't mentioned adjusting air mixture screw as I suggested. Please try it as it's quick and easy. In addition, If adjusting makes no difference, you have a blocked passageway. Given your description of your previous pilot jet, this is highly likely. Ultrasonic cleaning does not always clean t...

Re: want to trade short seat for stock seat

I'd love to meet up with you soon. My wing is currently still in pieces, trying to get it running better. Has a big flat spot in the mid RPM range, not to mention it has the infamous GL idle surge. Waiting for a pilot screw tool, hoping an adjustment will help. Really looking foward to some nice dis...

Re: want to trade short seat for stock seat

I might be. I am one of the short people out there and that would help me some. I know the one my '92 is stock. Not sure what the cover looks like as there is a sheep skin on it right now. I know someone did a small repair to the passenger back rest due to the cover seam splitting. I think the rest ...

Re: Now that it's running... surge problems

I have decided to bring my thread back to the top. I have a new problem to go along with the surge I can't seem to eliminate. Now I seem to have a flat spot coming off idle to about 4000RPM. Last night as I held the throttle at approximately 3000RPM the carbs began to sound like they were fluttering...

Re: Gas tank question

If my bike wasn't an Interstate I'd happily shift into reverse if that would help with getting it to run without a surge. :mrgreen: Got a TW sensor to put in today and then some reassembly and hopefully after that it'll be running like it should.

Gas tank question

Good evening all, A quick question to y'all, I took our '92 1500 out on it's first long trip and it did ok. Still have some small issues to work out. One odd thing I noted was that when I it was time to get gas I would twist the cap off and get a hiss of built up pressure from the tank. I thought th...

Re: Now that it's running... surge problems

Oh, well then my logic was very flawed! Good thing I made sure to note how much I moved that screw. When I get home from work I will reset the adjustment screw back to where it was. You learn something new everyday, I'm actually suprised that it runs at all. I feel so dumb right now. I've got access...

Re: Now that it's running... surge problems

Good morning all, Yesterday I had some success in that I finally got my '92 1500 up and running after a 6 year slumber. A good carb cleaning, fresh rubber parts in them and 2 new slow jets as the old ones crumbled when I put a screwdriver to them. After reinstallation the bike fired right up with t...

Re: New GL1500 owner here

Had a set back today. While at the fire station today I figured I would get the carburetors cleaned and rebuilt, but in the process of doing so broke the head off both of the screw in slow jets. As soon as I put the slightest torque to them they just crumbled. Guess it must have been a bad reaction ...

Re: New GL1500 owner here

I'll have to check the controls. I never noticed a balance function before. Would be nice if it was that easy. Another audio question, the tune toggle seems to only work intermittently, the down function seems to work better with less coaxing, is that switch serviceable?

Re: New GL1500 owner here

Well, I earned my Goldwing Carb merit badge yesterday. After pumping out the old gas adding some sea foam and fresh gas I was met with a no start condition, which turned into a nice puddle of gas under the bike. It took me a little while and with some help from some internet DIY's i was able to get ...
