1998 GL1500 SE
My wife and I were approved for our Loan last Friday, we close on it this coming Tuesday- we should have a Full tank of fuel in the Wing Tuesday evening if the prices don't go up again.
Dismantled crash bars removed shifter and dropped pipes to replace starter in 85 limited all to no avail.have to trace wiring .that's what I did. You asked.So here's a new idea. Let's just post what we did - and if ya did nothing, maybe this thread is inspiration for you to do something.
I'll kick it off.
I took the GL-1200 to Barnes and Noble - looking for a magazine for my wife. (yeah, I'm cheating, it was yesterday, but hey - it's 7am here.) And I used some Plexus to clean the windshield.
Whoa. Tracing wiring. . . Not firing, rough ride? What did I miss?Dismantled crash bars removed shifter and dropped pipes to replace starter in 85 limited all to no avail.have to trace wiring .that's what I did. You asked.
Yea,it was an intermittent thing,cranks than clicks.now it just clicks.two weeks ago After 50 miles stalled almost home put on battery charger overnight cranked good next day but was raining.cleaned contacts on battery and usallyStarter.no luck until last sat.cranked.replaced battery,no luck replaced solenoid today before I wrenched in another starter.usually I crank it over with kill switch on before I put pipes back on.( burnt up two Chinese starters in first two years) no luck.Whoa.

Mine is actually doing well even after discovering how much "work" the previous owner did. Wiring included.
Wish I had mentioned that I always go with 1 oz more than recommended.I did put them in. 2 oz in the front tire. the effects are noticeable and the "hop" between 20 ish and 30 ish is reduced but not gone. the vibration at freeway speed is gone. - Do I need One more oz in there??
