1987 GL1200 asp tip over sensor location?

Post by classics2go »



Hey all! Bike has lost spark to all 4 cyls. Does anyone know where the bank angle or tip over sensor (whatever it is called) is located? Have tank cover off and the forks out for rebuild so everything is pretty accessible. Cant seem to find where it is mounted. Been searching around the tree and front frame. Any help or a picture would be wonderful. Thanks!

There is a sensor assembly, stop P/N 35160-ML8-701 on the 1987 1200A, operates the same as the bank angle sensor. My '85 1200 LTD FI model has one as well. The '87 Aspy is located forward in front around the coils. Check the on line fiche for the '87 Aspy and it is in the ignition coil section number 16.

Good luck.

I am rebuilding a basket case and my tip sensor was bad and I actually just took t out and wired around it to get it to run.
