I have a 1988 GL1500 with engine number: SC22E-1000591 does anyone know which country it came from? Just trying to make sure I order correct parts for maintenance.

Thanks

Do those # references apply to my 95 1500i ? as in... My numbers start with 1HFSC2267SA------ So. I'm assuming... It is "NOT" a Made for CALIFORNIA Wing. With the Charcoal emissions canister??? I was thinking it "IS" a Cal Wing, with the canister, because of the strong gas smell that I am forever worrying about. :shock:

The whole point of the charcoal can is to prevent gas fumes, otherwise they just vent to air. So you don't have a functioning CA model, if you can smell gas.

Hmm... Thats interesting. Last year I had a vapor lock issue. (stalling) until I opened the cap.Soaked/ cleaned the gas cap. Fixed that issue. Never have the back pressure when opening the cap after that. Can feel the ball bearing working with shop air. So that seems to be working. Checked for fuel leaks many times. None. My garage is attached to my house. When I park after a ride. I have to leave the doors open with a fan blowing so I don't blow up my house. I love my bike but this gas smell consumes a lot of my joy worrying about the bike catching fire.

If it's that bad , the first thing to do is check for minor leaks. Those hoses are old and could have cracks. Lots of threads here about fuel leaks on 1500s.
