New wing with some issues
Just pick up a '88 gl1500 with 140,000 miles on it, it's been sitting for 3 years but still started up. I'm in the process it tarring it down and taking care of some issues I have came across. I am thinking I need to rebuild the carbs, it seams to load up on a couple of cylinders, it clears up when I bring up the RPM's but if I let it ideal it fouls out after a few seconds, only when it's cold. It also has a real bad hesitation when in gear and really bad when starting from a dead stop and also only cold. So while the carbs are off going to go through the vacuum lines and for sure balance them when I'm finished. Have been running Seafoam through it and it's helped but still not running right. One strange thing is the on board air system, the pump works but no air getting to the shock when the P. check/inflate buttons but it will pump up a tube from the line in the saddle bag. If I push the outlet/inflate button the pump does not operate at all. I'm going to start at the switch and fuses and see what I come up with there. Can anyone think of anything else I should check? I have also replaced the timing belt and pulleys, torqued down the exhaust, replaced plugs, oil and filter.
