Question about 1993 Honda GL 1500 Aspencade Gold Wing
My 1993 Goldwing 1500 Aspencade has only 20K miles on it, has always been garaged, is in perfect condition, always ran great, but has always had a slight hesitation when taking off.
Six months ago I had prostate cancer surgery. I was unable to ride the bike for several months, then began to ride it occasionally for short periods. It has not been cranked or driven in the last two months until yesterday. The battery was very low and had to be charged. Once the battery was charged, the engine was difficult to start, but finally cranked. I immediately noticed a very slight engine miss when the engine was reved up a bit. I drove down the highway a couple of miles and then back home. It seemed to run OK, but I could hear the new engine miss and still noticed the hesitation when taking off from a stop. When parked, if I speed the motor up and hold the throttle steady, the engine speed will go up and down several hundred RPM.
Any ideas what is likely the problem? Spark plugs? Ignition? Gummed up carb?
Thanks for any information.
