Re: Is Victor~Reinz Good Head Gasket?

The one thing that I would add is to re-tourqe the head gasket , I can't say when , but I know Honda said to do it when it was a new bike.

It did take two hours for the cables, maybe it would be easier and faster to pull the faux tank.

Re: GL1100 I Seat Bolt

Re: Removing the Pinstripes

When I did my 75 I tried a lot of things, what worked the best was a single edge razor blade. Scraping it off very carefully. if you slip ( like I did ) it is not the end of the world, just a little more filling and sanding.

the outer cable has a locking or sinching type nut at the top(under the rubber) and if you tighten it down it with hold the cable. it is in the owners manual.well at least I think it is there. Could be the GL1000 only.

Guys, please don't shoot me for this as it is just an example. There are chrome covers available that fit over the black front covers. If you have to remove the rings this should hide any damage.

Re: Gauge Swap Question

some have "pryed" them open and crimped it closed. the ring is what holds in together. I would think it would look crappy after , so I did not do mine.
