I did a search for this as I am sure I am not the only one with this issue. However, I did not find anything.

I have a 1997 Goldwing that when I turn the handlebars to the right, the idle will change by 750-1000rpm. I had the same issue about 7 years ago, but cannot find the documentation as to what was done. I am going to assume that maybe a vaccuum line is routed wrong, but not sure where to start. Any help would be great.



I know I am late here, but Happy Canada Day to all those above us(Was July 1st, if my memory serves me right), and Happy 4th to all of us in the USA.





Thanks,

Corey

Funny you should mention the work. Now that you say that, I am thinking it has done that since I put a fuel filter and air filter in the bike.
Thanks for the reply so quickly. I will check it tomorrow. The couch has been neglected all day and I don't want it to get mad at me. :)

All I can think it being is you moving the choke cable. My front end is apart right now, so I went out and looked at what it could be. Played with it by moving things back and forth. There are hydraulic fluid cables, electrical wires, and the choke cable. I can see nothing at least in the front end that would do that except maybe the choke cable.

Lubricate the choke cable while you are doing the throttle cables.
