GL1500se Engine Query ?

Post by Zradene »





Hi guys, I am replacing a blown SE22 GL1500se engine (UK) with an identical engine that came from the USA. There appears to be a slight difference to what I assume is a breather outlet located on the cylinder Heads. On the UK model these locations are blocked off.

Can anyone confirm that all US engines have this breather outlet, and if so send me a photo of the breather pipes etc.

Many thanks
Fred

Secondary air supply ports, an emissions thing that you folks don't seem to need so yours are blocked off. That system has a lot of plumbing so you don't want to try to duplicate it, just plug the ports.
Try to learn from the mistakes of others..... you won't live long enough to make them all yourself!

Hi my friend, many thanks for the info. Very interesting.... I will indeed block up those ports.

Best regards
