Re: 1980 Interstate speedometer removal

You would have to look at the Aspencade manual and figure out what parts would be needed to go digital. Then you would have to figure out how to do it.

Go to the top of this page and look at how to articles and manuals.

Re: 1980 Interstate speedometer removal

All you need to do is remove the 2 nuts on the back and disconnect the cable. Unplug the electrical wires or pop the light bulb out of the back.

There is nothing to rebuild in there.

Digital is doable but you need several more parts.

Re: Fuel Tank

The fuel line attaches to the bottom of the petcock. The petcock attaches to the right lower side of the tank by 2 screw, pan, 6 x 12.

The top of the tank you will have a gasket, base (P.# 37801-689-000)
The fuel sending unit and retainer (P. # 37802-371-000)

Re: How much should I do?

Use the old gaskets. If they leak they are not hard to replace. If you do replace use only oem.

Re: GL1100 engine removal & missing bolts

It does not matter when you drain it. Probably best to drain it after the engine is out. You will have engine oil left in the motor either way you do it. When you get the engine out you, will find the oil in the screen at the bottom of the engine which needs to be cleaned. Haynes does not tell you a...

Re: GL1100 engine removal & missing bolts

The missing screw part # is 93500-05008-oA screw, pan 5x8
........................... # is 90452-323-000 washer, thrust, 5mm

It is easier to leave the carbs in the bike (hang the carbs to the top of the frame) to remove the engine.

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

Let it sit till the weather warms up.
Do not go out and start it for 5 mins just to hear it purr or try to purr. That will cause more problems.
Just let it sit.

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

I would not get another filter. Open the drain plug and let the oil drip slowly out until the correct level is in the sight glass. How cold is it? My bike will not start after it gets so cold. No heated garage. Next spring add some sea foam to the oil and run it 200 miles and change the oil while th...

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: 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.

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.
