Hello all...

My new (to me) '97 has a weird problem. The clock is in its own time warp zone or something. It does not keep time. Every time I start the bike, the time is way different from my reality. I noticed even while I am riding, the clock finds its own time slot.

Any ideas?

Thanx!

Stay safe.

First ride- various minibikes in the 70\'s
First bike- 1974 Suzuki GT380 (bought around 1979)
First big bike- 1981 Kawasaki KZ1300 full dress (bought new)
First Goldwing- 1982 GL1100A (bought 2012)
Another 1982 Goldwing (parts bike)
My newest bike- 1997 Goldwing GL-1500SE (bought 2012)

Oh, and I love Krav maga too! But if Krav Maga is not effective, I highly recommend firearms!

That's a common problem with the 1997 models, and a lot of topics on the forum about it. There is a thread in the reference forum that shows how to fix the problem, pop over there and you will find it.

Hey ghostvet, did you find the how-to article in the workshop? If not this link will take you to it. This might be the fix for your clock.

Yes, I found my way there... Seems like a helluva lot of work!

My 96SE has the same problem. It usually straightens up after riding an hour or so. Rain, humidity, washing the bike all cause the clock to go into 'Warp Speed".
I just live with it.

Yup, moisture getting into the non cleaned soldier flux on the speedo PC board from the manufacturer of the PC boards and wires going into the speedo on the back not sealed from moisture getting in there from the fairing tunnel and also dirty connectors going to the speedo, any ambient moisture effects them.

Lots of work, yes but fixable.

Last night was the first time I rode this one at night. There seems to be several bulbs out. I gotta take the dash out anyway I guess. Not to happy about that, but I might a well replace all the bulbs.

Also, I am not sure yet (since I just got this bike), but it doesn't appear I am getting that good of mileage. Hmmm....

Stay safe.

By chance, does anyone have an e-version of the service manual for the 97 GL1100?

It's not really, more intimidating than anything else. I have a 97 SEthat had the famousfast clock symptoms in wetand damp conditions but OK when dry & warm. I pulled the dash from mine and did the repair. It's perfect now. See my comments from the faq section.
