I have a few questions to see if anyone has experinced this with their GL1800.

I may be a bit paranoid but here goes....

Just got home from a 1900 mile trip to Tennessee ......rode the Dragon.....The Cherohala and numerous others.

I have a 2005 GL1800A.....it is about to turn 17,000 miles.

I have noticed lately that when I turn the key on.......rather that the whizzing of the fuel pump running for a second or two......I hear a gurgling noise for a second or two. Anyone else have this???? Remedies???

Also.....When I decelerate the bike.....like in 2nd or 3rd gear.....the engine is braking......maybe 23-30 mph......I can hear a slight decel pop.....also.....if you rev the engine in neutral.....it will have a slight pop.

Don't know if these two issues are related or not.

Any info would be appreciated.

I have an 02 with 38000 miles, and it has been doing the same thing. Mine started at around 10000 miles. Shop said it is normal. But some day when I find a good shop I might belive it.

Gurgurling is from the fuel pump, my 04 does it sometimes and sometimes not. Never noticed any decel pop. :D
