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.

Re: 82 GW GL 11000 Strip Oil Filter Bolt Head

I used a grinder and ground the head off.
I have an extra one if you need it.

Re: Just acquired a 1983 GL1100 Interstate

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.

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.

Re: Running Light Speedo/Tach not working

When you put the false tank back on, you may have pulled the wires from those instruments.
Follow the wires down to the connections. Just my 2 cents.

Taking the back lights out at the connection( under the seat) should not have affected the front gauges.

Re: Crush washer sizes

I replaced my water pump a couple of months ago on 83 1100.
I do not recall any crush washers being used.
Look at the schematics and see if there are really crush washers.
