Re: Right hand grip removal

If you're not re-using the grip, just take a sharp knife and cut down the length of it. Then peel it open and it should come off easily enough. Worked like a charm. Cut off the foam part and had to cut up the clutch side one to make sure that the plastic I was seeing was part of the grip. Cut that ...

Re: How to rebuild your front master cylinder

My 1200 LTD (#3) master cylinder innards didn't quite look like this, and the original clip DID NOT come out willingly (but the replacement went in easily. Solved the front brake locking up problem.

Difference in Manuals?

Is there a big difference between the 1985 and the 1987 Electrical Troubleshooting manuals? I goofed and bought the 1987 instead of the 1985. Was only paying attention to the price difference and forgot to look at the year.

Re: Opportunity knocking or should I bolt the door?

Yep, I decided to pass on this one. Bolting that door! If your heart is set on a nice 4 cylinder, take a look at the 87 Aspencade I am selling. I have a couple people looking but until I have cash in hand it remains for sale. I actually prefer the fuel injected LTDs, but I was letting the training ...

$3800. Huh? What? What year? Fire?
It's an 82 1100i thats had a 4-wheel trike job done and what looks like a car carrier trailer. Gas dripping from two of the carbs is what caught fire. Probably melted some spark plug wires while it was burning.

Re: Opportunity knocking or should I bolt the door?

Mostly stored in a shed over the years. Body looks great as does the leather on the seat. I'd go ahead and single-carb it vs messing with four leaky carbs.

Opportunity knocking or should I bolt the door?

Took a look at an '82 GL1100 that's been triked (training wheel style). It comes with what looks like a home made cartop carrier trailer. Only has 20K miles - so we all know the stuff that hasn't been done to it. The carbs were leaking very slowly and the damn thing caught fire after it was started ...

When I first put the aftermarket auto injectors in I found the o-rings that came with them were larger than the bike injector o-rings. Watch for that when you install.
So did you get different O-rings or just re-use old ones?

I watched a guy today park his bike and go into the liquor store and come out with his purchase and he never took his helmet or armoured jacket off. lucky the police didn't greet him on the way out. I'd think store owner would be nervous seeing him come in. First of all, our police have a hard time...

Re: WHO'S BANGING ON MY DOOR AT 6 IN THE MORNING!!!

One suggestion I didn't see - use a disc lock ($15-30). They wouldn't have been able to roll the bike out of the garage. I live in a neighborhood where one of the neighbors told me a few bikes had been stolen (usually near bike week). As I don't have a garage, I went out and got two disc locks - one...
