Just a question...or two

Post by jhbates2000 » Fri Sep 06, 2013 5:00 am

The speedo gear on the gl1100a is plastic. I have come across some gears that are metal from othe bikes. will this work on an 1100a. Also I am in search of a good used set of front shocks for an 83 1100a..anybody know where I can get some?

Can't help on the drive gear.

Regarding the front, are they bent or the top sections severely pitted or scratched? If not, a rebuild is the way to go and you'll have to rebuild a used set anyway. There are how-to articles or hire it out but I only use Honda fork seals and bushings. Springs are probably fine but new Progressive brand springs are a nice upgrade.
