New to me 94 GL1500

Post by Pittburgman »



Hi all!

This is my new to me 94 GL1500. It quit while running for the PO. It does crank fine. I'll be looking here for ideas on what that issue could be.

Anyway, Here's my new baby... Not too bad for $400.

was it running and just stopped? easy stuff first, check fuel pump, fuel filter. I don't remember on the 1500 if it will turn over if the kill switch is bad.

Cool find, and welcome to your new project. The first thing I did when I got mine home was to take polishing compound and buff off all the pinstripes! :lol:

Apparently it was... He rode it all the time. It only has 44K for mileage, and its really nice. I am moving up from a burgman 650, which is a huge change, but I'm looking forward to it.

I will be looking at the fuel pump and filter as you have suggested. Not too sure what else I will find...lol

What my Honda GL1500 Service Manual states

While changing fuel filter, ( in same area ) take fuel petcock apart to see if diaphragm is torn, if so rebuild it.
Remove gas cap and soak in Seafoam a few days to clean it.
