Re: Dummy needs help identifying bike

The pics show an Interstate. You have the Analog gauges So it is not an Aspencade. The oil sight glass is on the right side under your heel. You have to get on the ground on your hands and knees to see it. I see it in your second pic. below the fuel pump. Take a small screw driver and wipe the wiper...

Re: Dummy needs help identifying bike

That plate should say

Gl110082--basic
GL1100A82--Aspencade
GL1100I82--Intwerstate

You can also check the #'s on the carbs and on the engine. Then use google.

Re: Dummy needs help identifying bike

Look at the steering column. There is a vin plate there and it will say year and bike and where it was produced.

Re: How to reinstall crankcase and belts

When you rotated the engine to TDC1 did you make sure that was the side the valves are open. You need to rotate TDC 2 times for a complete revolution of the engine.

Re: Just acquired a 1983 GL1100 Interstate

Calipers you find will be as old as the ones you have. Find a grease fitting and use grease to push the pistons out. They will come out.

To clean the chrome use water and aluminum foil. Cheap and takes it off in no time. Doesn't scratch it either.

Re: F/S 1000 and 1100 parts

I will look to see if they are still here. A lot of the stuff got sold and pitched in the dumpster.
It will probably be in the $50.00 for shipping. Just guessing.

Does your offer include shipping?

Re: 1983 GL 1100I, Painting Honda nameplates

I painted mine with a very very small paint brush and a toothpick.

Ride your rear tire up onto a 2 x 6. A lot easier to put the bike on the center stand.

Check the top of page under manuals.

Re: Honda wiring colour code

Well the rabbit hole disappeared.
The chart is no longer reachable from the link.

I was able to click on code: select all.

It printed out in small type but it was printed.
Thanks for the time it took you to put it on the site.

GL1100 fuse box

Has any one used a GL1200 fuse box to replace the GL1100?
I want to replace the 1100 and thought maybe the 1200 wires would be similar in color to the 1100.

Any suggestions?

Re: Neutral indecator light

I am assuming you are talking about an 1100. I had that problem long time ago. There is a diode wrapped in the wiring harness at the mid thigh left side. It is not easy to find. I know I had to replace that diode in the past. I'm not certain when it was the neutral coming on w/ clutch or another pro...

Re: How do I access the wiring at the front of the bike?

Take the false tank off. There are 2 screws on each side in the front. Take them out and throw them away. 2 bolts at the rear of the tank where the seat sits. Lift the false tank off.
