I have a '77 GL 1000. Anyone know what switch that is in the crankcase right next to the engine serial number? I thought it was the neutral switch but read a thread that switch is located on the front of the engine. I know its not the temp sensor or the cooling fan switch. I give.

Hi Mike. I don't have a 1000 but quite a few of the other guys and gals on here have had or do have one. A picture showing the switch would make it a lot easier for us to identify the part for you.

Here's a picture of the switch. You can see the fuel filter on the left and the choke linkage above. I removed the fuel line from the fuel pump to the carbs to get a better view.

That fuel line is clear? Hopefully it's fuel rated. You don't need a bunch of melted plastic in your carbs.

About the fuel line:
Its clear yellow fuel line I bought at a store in Canada while driving around Lake Superior. Been on there for a year now with no problems but up till now has only been on the suction side of the fuel pump. Just overhauled the carbs and used some from the pump to the carbs. Ran it some and so far so good. Hoping to buy the original fuel lines from Honda but out of stock. According to Randakk's it goes in and out of stock - have to keep checking.

Funny thing is he's only 1/2 hour from me here in Washington!!

It looks to me to be an oil pressure sender. On mine i have a oil line going to a mechanical gage in that spot. Must be for an oil light

On my '75 wing that was the oil light pressure switch.
