Re: Bike wont start (video)

Re: GL1100 head gasket replacement

If you have gas in your oil it is most likely a carb problem..Gas will leak past the the carbs and into the oil pan..if floats set wrong, float needle bad, o ring between carb and plenum bad, or if plenum gasket bad..all can be the source of the leak. If you always turn the petcock to off when not r...

Re: GL1100 1982 Aspencade leak

Looks like the engine drain hose for engine gas and moisture..it's supposed to "leak' if that's what the pic is of??? There should be a canister on it that one is supposed to empty at ever oil change or so..but many remove it and let the tube just drip.

Re: Just acquired a 1983 GL1100 Interstate

I'd make sure it runs before investing much money..belts, oil, battery maybe pull the carbs clean/rebuild at least pull and take a look at the jets ..turn her over my hand a few times, and try to start her. Use alternate fuel source hooked up to the carbs; if she starts then start on the other stuff...

Re: Occasional Fuel Leak from Vent Hose at #3 Carb

I didn't think there were any "vent/drain hoses on Gl1100 or gl1000 carbs but #3 does have a vacuum hose that goes to the pulse generator. if the carbs leak the gas goes into the cylinders and then oil pan.. shouldn't have to shut petcock off if the carbs are working correctly but it is a good safe ...

Re: Converting GL1100 Interstate to Aspencade

Yes it's doable..just remove everything you don't want and buy the parts you need headlight, turn signals, ears etc. the only real issue is the weight/wire box under the fairing..hard to hide all those wires once the box is gone. Go look at a standard on line..pic etc. to see what there.. What yoiu ...

There are springs in the air screws all four of them, at the linkage you are fighting with, the accelerator shaft, all 4 cut offs, Look at a carb fiche on a dealer's parts site may help you.. http://shop.westernhonda.com/fiche_section_detail.asp?section=2566507&category=Motorcycles&make=Honda&year=1...
