Re: Rear air shocks have oil?

Wow. 12.5 oz. I had no idea. I'm glad I did not break the lines apart. If I ever get to the point where I want to change a shock, I may be back with a "how-to" question :lol: . Thanks for the help.

How to restore your Gas Gauge sending unit

The bike I am working on is a 1981 GL1100 so the pics are for that bike. First you have to get it out of the tank. I'm doing a restoration on this bike and I did not document that step. If you don't know how to do that, maybe this article is not for you. You can seriously screw up the holding ring i...

Rear air shocks have oil?

When I let the air out of the rear shocks, a light oil came out. Seemed like a fair amount to me, I mean it was enough to coat the tips of two fingers. Is this normal? Thanks for the help and great site.

Re: Derusting Your Gas Tank

These all look like good ideas. I just purchased a 1980 GL1100 for $400.00 (US) and the tank is in really bad shape. Has a lot of rust in it. I was able to drain the old fuel out by attaching a hose to the front flow valve. I got most of it out, but I can still see some down inside. I would like to...

Re: Year compatability

Thanks for the help; I'd hate to muck this thing up. I've been told the "engines" are the same and the carbs will bolt on but I guess that does not mean the carbs themselves are the same. I got what I thought was good info here:

Year compatability

New member here. I have a 1981 GL1100 I would like to get going for my son. The carbs are shot; the jets are totally seized. This bike has been sitting for a long time. We did start it before tearing into it and it does run (actually quite nicely). The previous owners wife literally beat this thing ...
