I have a 1996 gl1500 Aspencade, Lately the clock will loose the time when I shut it off and the seconds will change about every 10 seconds. After I ride for about 15 to 20 min it will go back to normal and keep good time. I have checked the back up fuse and it is fine. Anyone know what causes the clock to run fast then slow down?

But Dave...I was serious!

Sorry Jetson, I don't have an answer. At least not a good one.

Welcome to the forum from Canada and welcome to one of the gremlins of the '96-'97 series. Clock advances because of poorly constructed circuit board. Moisture gets in there and mucks it up. Lots of threads on here with guys experiencing the same problem. The fix is to take it apart, scour with a soft toothbrush and give it a shot with silicone spray. Be warned, its more work than changing the time back on high humidity days.

Found a link to the topic:

The thread also has a few more links that speak to the subject. Mods may want to consider indexing the above link since it seems to give better info than most regarding this subject. Most other threads just say give it up and buy another. Hate that thought.

How's your alternator doing? Another gremlin to watch for on that bike. Chinese made parts in a Japanese bike don't work.

John, you obviously never worked in a Honda shop or else your work ethic never caught on! :cheeky1:

Thanks for the info. The humidity thing sounds like the culpruit as I first noticed it after I gave it a bath and then it started more often this summer (high humidity here). Air has been real dry the last few days and it has worked perfect. I think I will wait till this winter to tear into it though. Thanks again for taking the time to answer my question, this is a great forum, just ask a question and get an answer.
