My 1993 gl1500 goldwing does not want to idle unless the choke s partially on. It also surges. If I take off the choke it syops running

Sounds like either the fuel filter is dirty or the carbs need to be taken apart and cleaned of varnish buildup from old gas.

93 honda goldwing hard to start when cold

First thing, change fuel filter. If that don't work, check to see if choke is operating properly. Check the spark plugs or change. Last but not least, disassemble the carbs and clean. Do one thing at a time and then try starting engine. That way you will discover what is causing you grief.

Hi Most likely your engine shut off first then the light goes on as soon as the engine oil pressure dropped sounds like you have a carb problem and the motorcycle is running on the choke circuit. then it dies after the choke is turned off.

Remove carburetor on a1983 honda goldwing interstate

Removing the carbs on these model Goldwings is a JOB!! Best to have it done by a professional. But i will tell you that the intake runners have to be removed,as well as both side fairings,and the false tank,before even thinking about getting them out.

1998 gl1500 goldwing loosing power and must engage choke in order to pick up speed.

Either your fuel filter is dirty or your cabs need to be disassembled and cleaned. If bike has been sitting too long, the carbs have old gas in them and therefore a build up of varnish.

How do i remove carbs on 89 goldwing

This is a very extensive proceedure, but you have to remove anything and everything that'll prevent you from getting those carbes off.

If you have the four carbs attached to a big airbox, the airbox has to be removed with the carbs and then disassembled from the airbox. Once you take the airbox lid off you'll see the screws that holds the carbs.
The water lines attached to the carb go into the engine just pop right out, they have an o-ring on the ends of them,
Once you have the throttle cables, choke cable, vacuum line and water lines disconnted, you can pull out the whole airbox with the carbs attached from the left side of the bike.

1984 GL1200 Goldwing... 80k mi. will not run without choke on 1/4 to 1/2 open... when given throttle, the engine backfires and blows black soot out of exhaust... new spark plugs with gap set at...

This sounds like a fuel flow problem. I suggest removing and rebuilding and cleaning the entire system, meaning Carbs, filters and strainers in the tank. Old fuel turns to gel, and floats absorb fuel, sometimes, so inspedt everything. When finished set carbs with carb sticks, both at idle and at 2000 RPM, using hand throttle.

Gas leak on 1981 goldwing 1100

I would suggest that you pull the carbs and clean/rebuild them. I am also suprised that you havent at least fouled one or one side of the plugs (normally the kickstand side). It is a carb problem, also check your air cleaner while you are there, linkages, choke, and the like. You will probably find things plugged up in the carbs. I have this problem with my chopped scoot 'wing (that I have a chevy 2bbl carb on... :), but that's a different cause and story. Hope this helps you with your scoot, Rick
