Mystery lever on 96 Gl1500se???

Post by FluffyDog6 »



What is this white lever in front of my fuel filter? What does it do?

Don’t see it in the owner’s manual.

There is one on each side. They are latches to hold down the shelter top.
The one in your pic is in the halfway position. Push it forward to release, or push to the rear and outwards to latch.

Ok. I thought maybe it was a reserve fuel lever or something.

Thanks.

There's no reserve. That's why it's a good reason never to pass a gas pump if you have less than 1/4 on the gauge.

There are 2 of those.
Right side 'oil slick', left is the passenger eject.

( play James Bond theme )


When I do one thing, I'll sidestep a little & learn many things.
