They sell complete kits on eBay people have had good luck with Versa kits. But add OEM head gaskets. are you su...

Re: How to Clean Crabs 1982 GL 1100

turn the pilot screw in until it seats lightly(if you turn it too far you can break the tip off) then back it out 2 turns..run the bike keep adjusting until it runs even at idle..you might want to unscrew it all teh way to make sure it not already broken first???

Re: Do I need to rebuild my calipers?

The cap just twists off..no pushing down.try some goose necks??? left side how far back I thought you said center bike? If so could be the connection at the caliper line..a caliper leak would be on the tail pipe part. Look at a parts fiche for your year at eh rear break master, to see possibilities
