  1. “Handling” Problem - GL1000

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    No it couldn't
  2. Carb Synch?

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    Sorry AZ you are incorrect.
  3. Carb Synch?

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    My GL1500 has 150,000 miles on it and I've never touched the carbs. Runs great
  4. stator

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    Have you actually tested your stator. Melted connectors are common in the charging circuit. I think a lot of good stators are chucked because there's something else wrong.
  5. Carb kit GL1000

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    See if you can borrow Randakk's video from someone. It's good. If you do buy a kit, work nights and get Randakk's. Well worth the money.
  6. Eng rattle on my 94 gl 1500

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    Sure sounds like pre-ignition from your description of symptoms. If the timing hasn't been messed with, I wonder if you have some carbon buildup on the pistons. Squirting water in the intake while the engine is running could help it. Also some techron in the tank for a while might help.
  7. Motorcycle Camara

    General Motorcycle Discussion Forum
    Wheel witness was one of the cams I tried. It disintegrated from vibration - on my GL1500 mind you. The seller refused to fix it because using it on a motorcycle voided the warranty. The camera itself seemed to work OK but the mount is incredibly flimsy.
  8. Motorcycle Camara

    General Motorcycle Discussion Forum
    I've had 2 dash cams. Both were junk. It took me a while to get through the Chinese-English on how to work them and then they went ****-up. I'd sure like to have a working dash-cam. Those bastards in cars are definitely trying to kill me and if one does, I'd like him to do prison time. A...
  9. Cooling fan running too much

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    The OEM switch seems to cause problems sometimes. Mine would come on at more or less the right temp but then stay on. I disassembled and cleaned it to no avail. Then I replaced it with an automotive switch and matching connector. I wired in a relay for it too. It works fine and a replacement is...

    How would coolant level have anything to do with it?
  11. You Gotta Read This.

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    I don't know how similar your '95 is to my '99 but I've had run/quit/run symptoms before. First one was caused by a disintegrated Emgo fuel filter. Second was a bad fuel pump. Third was a bad petcock. All three would cause intermittent failure.
  12. Power loss and almost died: 300+ mile trip 1997 GL1500

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    Reporting back - I saw a list of symptoms for bad petcock on GoldwingDocs, one of which matched mine i.e. engine dies and then restarts and continues running. So I rebuilt the petcock with a Showchrome kit and have had no problems since. I just concluded a 2500 miler without a hiccup. The old...

    I've found them on ebay
  14. Parasitic power draw from Fuse 13.

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    I have 6 deltrans and a diehard (s/b renamed dieeasy). I thought Deltran was the 'battery tender' brand. Can't find anything different with google
  15. No Neutral light No starting

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    Been riding Hondas since 1967. Last year on a trip far from home, stopped for a break, bike did what you describe (except for the neutral light). After 2 hours of disassembly, frantic phone calls etc., noticed the kill button was on. Now that's the first thing I check. I'm not sure where your...
  16. Parasitic power draw from Fuse 13.

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    What cihilb said. I've had more than one Deltran Junior maintainer go bad. As stated earlier, there is a small draw to keep the dash alive. You need to measure the amperage draw. Pull the fuse, put an ammeter across the 2 terminals where the fuse goes. Should only be a small amount - maybe 50 ma...
  17. G1500 tires?

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    When I bought my GL1500 used it had Dunlop E2s on it. I've used E3s and my last replacement on the front is an E4. My last rear tire lasted 30,000 miles. I see no reason to change. True these tires whine when you lean the bike but so do millenials when they have an outdated iPhone. The whine...
  18. 1500 fuel problems

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    The fuel pump doesn't just quit. It gets tired for some reason. Mine would run fine and then quit for no apparent reason and start up again. I replaced the fuel pump at about the mileage you're at. That was the problem. I've since had a similar problem (at 150,000 miles) and pretty sure it's the...
  19. CB intercom

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    Joe, I think I'll just shoot off an email to J&M, tell them what it is I want to do and see what they propose, and if I'll need a mortgage to finance it. Thanks for your input
  20. CB intercom

    Goldwing Technical Forum
    Except for the fact that the cables crap out as regularly as mass shootings, the intercom on my GL1500 works great. My wife and I are on the same bike and we can chat. We also ride on smaller bikes separately and it would be handy if we could communicate. We're never more than a hundred feet...
