I purchased a 1990 gl1500 last summer and within the last few months whenever I go over a relatively large bump the engine will automatically shut off. I have to then turn off the key and turn it back on and the bike starts up again. I know there is an auto shut off mechanism on the bike if you happen to drop it. Could my problem be associated with that mechanism? If anyone has any useful information I would appreciate it. :)

:waving:Hi Wayne :waving:and welcome to the best and friendliest goldwing forum on the net ,,your problem is most likely the bank angle sensor ,,they gave a lot of trouble on earlier 1500 and were replaced free from honda ,,it is located under the passenger end of the saddle ,,check with honda to see if you can still receive one free .as it was a manufacturing fault ,,also check all the block connectors and the fuses for corrision ,,but my bets would be on the bank angle sensor ,,,Ciaran

Contact your nearest honda dealer, it will be changed free of charge. Mine was changed many years after I received notce. Just seen them and they punched in my VIN # and to verify that it has never been changed and done for free.

Hi WayneWHAand welcome to the forum. The guys are right, this is the bank angle sensor (or tilt sensor). Honda did a recall on these back in 1995, but they will still give you a new one if your bike never availed of it at the time. It's under the rear of the saddle, right side and tucked between the right saddlebag and the fender (in the corner where saddlebag and trunk meet).

Welcome to the forum WayneWHA! :waving:


Isn't there a safety switch on the side stand as well? Could be loose and activating when hitting a large bump. Or maybe they didn't put them on that far back. :baffled:

Hello WayneWHA, welcome to the message board. My money is on the tilt sensor as well. I've seen lots of cases identical to yours and a new sensor sorted it out. :waving:
