Question about Honda GL 1500 Gold Wing Motorcycles
I would have say the float in your carb is stuck. Take the bowl off the bottom and see if your float needle is sticking if not check your fuel line's .

HELLO THIS IS AN EASY ONE.
****CAUTION**** IF IT IS FLODDING GAS OUT OF IF.THE GAS CAN ALSO BE GOING INTO YOUR AIR BOX.IF THE BIKE BACK FIRES IT WILL IGNIGHT THE OLD FUEL THAT HAS CLOECTED IN THE AIR BOX AND YOU COULD LOSE YOUR BIKE BE CAREFULL AND KEEP CHECK ON THE AIR BOX AND FILTER DURING THE INTIRE PROCCES
WELL TO ANSWER .YOUR CARBS ARE VARNISHED UP.THIS IS CAUSED FROM THE BIKE SETTING FOR SO LONG.THE LEAKING GAS IS FROM THE FLOATS NOT BEING ABLE TO FLOAT BECAUSE OF THE VARNISHING.AND OF COURSE THE NEDDLE VAVLE IS STUCK(THAT IS WHAT SHUTS THE FUEL OF INSIDE THE CARBS)
YOU WILL HAVE TO TAKE THEM APART AND CLEN THEM VERY GOOD,AND THIS IS GOING TO BE QUITE A JOB ON THIS BIKE.
IF YOU CAN AFFORD TO TAKE IT TO SHOP IT WOULD BE EASYER FOR YOU.;HOWEVER A GOOD GUESS AT THE PRICE TO DO THIS ,I WOULD SAY AT THE DEALER YOU MAY BE LOOKING AT 300.00 DOLLARS ARE MORE DEPENDING ON THE DAMAGE.
OH I ALMOST FORGOT.YOU WILL HAVE TO CLEAN THE TANK OUT OF THE OLD FUEL AND MAYBE THE VARNISHING.AND I DONT KNOW IF THIS BIKE HAS A FUEL PUMP ARE IF IT GRAVITY FEED .YOU MAY HAVE TO CLEAN OUT THE PUMP IF IT HAS ONE AS I SAID I DONT KNOW ON THIS BIKE.AND THE PETCOCK VALVE(FUEL ON AND OF VAVLE) MAY ALSO NEED TO BE LOOKED AT
HOPE THIS HELP AND AGAIN REMEBER ABOUT THE AIR BOX I HAVE SEEN SOME NICE BIKES BURT FROM THIS.

Hello shawn...Yes indeed gasoline can degrade over time. That can lead to a number of problems, ranging from hard starting, to rough running, to no starting at all...If your bike was stored for 2 years the gasoline in it has degraded beyond use. Even if the gas was treated with stabiliser before it was stored...it will still degrade in 10-12 months, if not sooner. I'm suprised your bike will even start. I suggest you drain ALL the gas out of the tank, Rinse and refill with fresh gas, drain your carbs as well...the stale gas has most likely clogged the pilot jets, draining the carb bowls will help.
Go to your parts store and buy a can of "Seafoam" pour 1/2 of it in with your fresh gas..use the other 1/2 on your next tank of gas.
Replace fuel filter after 1st tank, the seafoam will dislodge any debris that was in the fuel tank. It will also clean the combustion chambers and carb jets. Check your carb boots for any cracks or detoration that would cause a vacuum leak. Replace your spark plugs. If your bike is still running rough after this, then the carbs will need to be removed and cleaned and/or rejetted.
Good luck..i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.
