I am lost I think? Wasn't the last GL1500 in 2000? I thought 2001 was the 1st year for the GL1800?

True, I was thinking it was just a typo since his avatar shows a 2000. I fixed it.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

I just looked and saw the GL1500 Valkyrie had a 2001? Is that possibly what he has?

What does it smell like? Mice and packrats love to store corn, etc. on top of engines. If it smells like burnt popcorn, there ya go. I use dowels in my GL1200 exhaust pipes to keep mice out. Didn't do that one year and, sho nuff, had quite a few hours of smoke and smell 'til it cleared out. (rev up the engine and watch the corn shoot out!!) But check the top of the engine or use compressed air to blow out any potential nest or food cache. I had some there, too.
