I don't know if I'm just lucky, but I shift at 2500 Rpm and cruise at 3000 Rpm,I know it gets boring,but then I get 38 to 40 Mpg at hiway riding. If I ride at 3500 Rpm and up, typically 80 Mph, then the mileage drops to 30 Mpg or less.

In normal highway riding it is normal to get low to mid 30's. These bikes will NOT get 40 to 50 mpg as some people say. You might occasionaly get near 40 if you are very lucky. Mine gets 32.

Runs rough unless you choke while driving,leaks gas out of 1 of the carbs on rt. side


That is one of the best signs that the carbs need rebuilding and cleaning. On a Valkyrie there are SIX carbs. Take it to someone who knows what they are doing. When it's done Hang on it will run like new.

Where is the gas gage on 1998 valkyrie


There is no gas gauge. You have to set your trip mileage on the speedometer to 0 each time you fill up the gas hog. I go 80 miles before I have to switch the tank to reserve leaving maybe 20 miles left before walking. Don't even think about pushing that bike to the gas station just leave it. You will need a good insurance policy to protect against theft if you leave it unattended.

Honda valkyrie tourer year is 2000. problem is no headlight or spotslights ,,,I did checked the fuse and its ok.


You probably have a bad starter button. It is a two position switch. Push it in half way and it turns off the headlight. Push it in all the way and it powers the starter solenoid. If the button is dirty or broken your headlight wont work. Try cleaning the button. if it needs to be replaced you will have to replace the whole right switch assembly. The spot lights not working depends on how the mechanic wired them into the system. If they were wired to the headlight power source , I believe it was done correctly. Never attach accessories directly to the battery . It bypasses the voltage regulator and wil damage your battery through overcharging.

At 85 its like i start running out of gas. If i let off then give it gas again it works again. Its a 1998 honda valkryie cruiser motorcycle. It runs great at lower speeds


Sound like you have some gum or dirt in a carburator. Also make sure the air filter is "clean." Have those carbs looked at and all passages cleaned up.

Can someone send me to a link to describe how I remove the gas tank from a GL1500C/CT? Its a Valkyrie Tourer. I have a fuel leak and need to get under the tank to find the problem. Any help would be...


hi,just a note dont know weather it will help or not ,but the bike is not that old and i doubt the tank would be leaking,a more likely cause would be a split fuel line or loose fuel tap,hope this helps

98 Honda Valkyrie Tourer, engine stalls after riding for a few miles. Engine will turn over after stalling, just no spark. After sitting for 10 minutes, engine fires and runs for a few minutes and stalls...


Check vacuum line from #6 intake runner (port side rear cylinder) to the fuel petcock valve. The valve is vacuum operated for safety. It cuts off fuel to the carbs when the engine is shutdown. Hose could be cracked or diaphram in valve is cracked. Easy to inspect the valve.
