My GL1100 (Australia)

Post by tocandtol » Fri Oct 05, 2012 6:20 am

Hi all.

I have just posted some photos in the members pictures area. They are of my GL1100 that I recently bought off a mate. He had had it for a few years but didn't really ride it a lot over the past 4 years so I was lucky enough to get it at a good price. I knew it would need some work so I thought that I would try some of it myself and hopefully save some money. I have to that everyone on GoldwingDocs because all of your tips and how to do pages helped me heaps and gave me the confidence to attempt a lot of this stuff. I haven't really done a lot as I didn't pull the motor out and apart because it was sounding and running ok. I did change oil, plugs, filters etc and did the brakes (Thanks Wingadmin). I updated some of the wiring and added a UHF CB, a small FM radio with iPod or MP3 connection and an Autocom intercom system, and cleaned and polished the chrome (Coke and alfoil). Again, thanks to all who have helped me by adding your bits and pieces to the How to Articles, espicially WingAdmin.

Cheers to all

It looks great. One thing about the Wing engines, if they are maintained even remotely well, they just run forever, and there is little reason to pull them or open them up.
