Ron,

The 88's and 89's had some "driveability" issues in the form of hesitation... Honda issued a TSB (not what Honda calls it) to rejet the carbs if the customer complained about it... Some guys also install a 4 degree trigger wheel (timing wheel) to bump the timing up a bit and reported good success doing that...

Any competent Honda can rejet the carbs and install the trigger wheel... The trigger wheel is an aftermarket device just so you know...

Other than that, the 1500's are a very dependable ride...

Thinking back I remember hearing about the trigger wheel, never needed it on my 93.

The driveability issues only affected the 88's and 89's, although I did have a 6 degree trigger wheel on my 93 Aspy for a while... Seemed to make it a bit peppier but that was a "seat of the pants" observation...

Never should have traded my 93!!
