Question about 1988 Honda GL 1500 Gold Wing

2 Answers

Several times lately when I start my 88 1500

I have a 1988 1500 goldwing with 63,000 miles. Several times lately when I start my 88 1500 goldwing I hear a very high pitched squeel. Not load but annoying. As I rev the motor up the squeel gets higher with the RPM's also I shut the motor off and try again and most of the time it goes away. The timing belts were changed at roughly 55,000 so I can't imagine that being the issue. Anybody have an idea what the squeel could be

Testimonial: "Thanks, If it were a bearing, I'm assuming it would be the altenator, because it's the only bearing outside the motor,,, correct?"

Due to the age of this bike I would inspect all the vacuum hoses on the carburators. A small leak can make a kind of whistling sound. This a cheap and easy fix to replace these lines.

5 yr old Asus with antec 450 power supply has had NO issues ever. Now I need to turn the ps off and on 2 or 3 times before the start switch at the front of the comp will work.... once it boots up...


there are several filter capacitors inside the power supply that are defective and /or are changing value. this accounts for the high pitch squeel you are hearing...the only REAL way to test for these problems are with an esr meter or lcr bridge, but you can physically look at the capacitors and see if any of them are bulged up or leaking., my suggestion is to go to tigerdirect.com and get another 450W or better PS...they are pretty cheap there

Very hot alternator after just replacing and a high pitch squeel


THE ALTERNATOR CAN GO OUT DUE TO A WEAK OR BAD BATTERY CAUSING IT TO OVERCHARGE TRYING TO KEEP UP WITH DEMAND ON THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM. IT WILL HAVE A HIGH PITCH NOISE WHILE CHARGING AT A HIGH RATE AND FINALLY IT TO WILL GO BAD.

HAVE THE BATTERY TESTED AND CHECK THE CHARGE RATE AT THE ALTERNATOR AND AT THE BATTERY.

RCA F32650 won't power up/ high pitched squeel


HARRomeo, the horizontal output transistor will usually make the set have a high pitched sound, as that is the power supply being loaded down, if you habe any solid state repair experience, thats where you should start. As you should take out the transistor and measure it with an ohm meter and see if it is shorted. There are several reasons the transistor will short. Most of the time , it is the high voltage transformer also know as the flyback transformer. Also a drive problem could cause this to shprt also. In some cases the power supply itself could have a bad regulator, or a bad capacitor in the circcuit. Bottom line if you have the experience, you will need to get a schematic, and trouble shoot the sweep circuits first. if you do not have any solid state repair experienc3, Please play it safe and seek out the help of a trained repair person. Good Luck Please dont forget to rate this thread.
