Ok guys here is a good one for you. I ride my 81 GL500 around town no problems, except that it is starting a little hard right now. If I take it up on the Freeway which I do once a month for the weekend to go to my Army National Guard drill. She runs fine at around 6500 to 7000 RPM the problem starts after running for about 40 miles or so and I get off the Freeway. When I am sitting at the Gate waiting my turn to show my ID the Engine dies. The temp gauge jumps from the almost cold mark to about Half range. The bike almost refuses to restart. I have to crank the throttle full open pull the choke and crank the living shit out of it until it starts then if I let it idle it will die again right away have to keep reving the throttle to keep the engine going. What gives where should I start on this one.
