Re: 79 GL1000 elec problems

First off, thanks to all for the help. Back on the road again. I have a new question that has nothing to do with motorcycle problems. A few months ago I saw a video about a trike add on that showed the bike leaning. This was not a front conversion, but rear outriggers that leaned. I have spent hours...

Re: 79 GL1000

There is no coolant leaking, only oil, so what seal would cause this?

79 GL1000

I have a 79 gl1000 that has an oil leak. The leak is from a small hole in the crankcase . I have seen this hole on every other 1000 and 1100 I have looked at, but mine is the only one that leaks. What is the purpose of this hole and is there an easy fix for this leak?

fork weight

My 1982 GL1100 has a large weight attached to the forks between the triple clamp and the fork brace. I have never seen this on any other wing and wondered what it's function is and if it con be removed without any adverse effects.

Re: carb removal

On the 1100 I have removed all the bolts and cables,but can't get the carbs out of the frame. Do the carbs have to be removed from the breather box?

carb removal

First off, thanks to all for helping with the spark problems on the 83 1100. That said,new question. Can the carbs on a 79 1000, and an 82 1100 be removed without lowering the engine? Doesn't seem to be a lot of clearance.

Re: 1100 won't start

WingAdmin Iappreciate your concern on checking the plugs, but I always leave the plugs in and use spare plugs to check if they are firing.

1100 won't start

Helping a friend with an 83 1100. he replaced the plugs and plug wires, starter solenoid. Started and ran fine. Tried to start it later, only ran on 2 cyl. Now it won't start at all,but sometimes when you try, 1 cyl will fire 1 time, then nothing even though it cranks over.
