Re: Clutch fluid gone

Also make sure the bleed hose is tight around the bleeder nipple. If not, this can cause air bubbles.

I'm not trying to be a smart a.. ! but did you make sure the kill switch is in the on position? believe me I know, I have done this myself
Some later years of the 1500 will not operate the starter with the kill switch in the off position. I believe the 97 is one of them.

Re: fuel not getting thru to start engine

I know you stated it cranks hard but the 1500 won't start unless the battery has a full charge. The ECU requires at least 10.? volts to fire. Try charging the battery before you spend more time looking.

Re: 82 1100 Aspencade won't start - too much oil?

We get confused easily. lol. 10w40 should be just fine. And just so you don't get confused, the starter clutch is not in the starter it is internal to the engine. No way to check it. The most common cause for this is sludge build up around the clutch mechanism. Seafoam will dissolve the sludge into ...

Re: 82 1100 Aspencade won't start - too much oil?

Your initial post has been misinterprited by all of us for lack of clarity. As stated in the last post your problem all along has been the sprague clutch not working properly. Your next step should be to run a dose of Seafoam in the oil to dissolve any sludge and un-clog the starter clutch. Then one...

You will find that with a good polishing the covers will take years to corrode again even without waxing. I polished the covers and forks on my 76 12 or 13 years ago. They still look the same with a once a year polishing with Turtle Wax. No clear coat necessary or recommended. Clear coating will ye...

Your picture of the damaged rim is a perfect example of what can happen when dishwashing detergent is used to mount tires on "aluminum" rims. Not recommended.

Not normal. Time for replacement. Here are the rubber dampers. http://cyclemax.com/inc/sdetail/gl1500_ ... 744/147858 You may have to go to Honda for the inserts. Not sure if anyone else sells them.

There are cheap aftermarket starters that have plastic planetary reduction gearsets in them, that perform and last just as long as you would expect them to - so watch out for them. If it seems too cheap, i.e. too good to be true, it probably is. Exactly why I am asking for references here. His is a...

Gl1100 starter aftermarket

Looking for a starter for a friends 1100. Anyone have any advice? His is a knockoff so no rebuild possible.

Thanks.
