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.

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.

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?
