Question about 1977 Honda GL 1000 (K2)

2 Answers

1977 Honda GL1000 Goldwing. I replaced the water pump because it was leaking and now the engine is overheating. I just idle engine for 5-10 minutes and the temp gauge goes to hot. the fan starts but not until temp gauge is pegged. I have tested thermostat, put different temp gauge on and tested fan switch, all seem fine. Any suggestions. Thanks

    how would I go about pressurizing system with water ?

  • dbrevig Aug 06, 2009

    This problem has been resolved. It ended up being the 7V regulator that feeds the temp and fuel gauge.

    Thanks for the input

I have a few 1977 GL-1000 bikes.
I thought one was overheating but it turned out that the 9 volt regulator was fried and was putting 12 volts to the temperature gauge. Temperature was really OK. The fan switch is probably not lying

1977 Honda GL 1000 overheating


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Engine oil level and SAE weight are too low or not circulating.
2. Insufficient or blocked airflow over the engine.
3. Heavy combustion chamber carbon deposits.
4. Ignition timing retarded due to a faulty MAP, CKP, or CMP sensor.
5. Carburetor jetted too lean.
6. Leaking intake or exhaust valve.
7. Clutch slipping, brakes dragging, heavy load, towing a trailer.
8. Idling too long without moving.
9. Constant hot weather temperatures, mountain, or desert riding conditions consider adding an oil cooler and or cylinder head cooler.

WEAK SPARK ON CYLINDER 1 & 4 ON 1977 HONDA GOLDWING


Hi, Anonymous there is no such thing as a "WEAK SPARK" even though dozens of riders will swear that's what they have and are dying to show you, the bottom line is either you have spark or don't have spark there is nothing in between.
You won't see a dirtbike spark really well, and people only look at it when they have a problem. It is designed to fire under extreme pressure (13:1 compression) and is very robust, but it is not a 1mm bright blue line jumping across a spark plug. It can be white and very hard to see. If you are confident you have weak or no spark prove it by holding the plug in your hand and stark kicking you will be in for a "SHOCKING" surprise!!!!!
60% of these bikes have a flooding issue and/or a fouled plug. 30% need valves adjusted and most of the remaining 10% is something simple in the electrics like a broken kill switch, bad earth on the battery or dead battery, wiring at the steering head damaged or blown fuse.
