Did you have the heads off when you rebuilt it . If so maybe you missed putting in one of the water connectors apart from that i cant think of any thing else .

Re: 1983 GL1100I Leaking antifreeze from Plug #1

Is it the left side as you sit on the bike . If it is its the weep hole for the water pump most of the time its the seal between the water pump and the oil pump . the worst case is the water pump is bad and needs to be changed out .

Re: 83 GL1100 22,000 Miles NEW CLUTCH???? REALLY?

Well thats good news on the clutch . Before you go to Mother Honda try to find the items else where first as they still want your first born for some items . One place you need to stay away from is saber cycles just look them up on here and your see why they also sell items under the name Barracuda ...
