In the "How-to" section. there is a how to on the 1100. The procedures are basically the same. Not sure about the "measures" on the retainer.

Remember the stock seal is two seals, or a wiper and a seal really. The wiper is no longer used and when you replace the seals the wipers just gets forgotten. No need to add a spacer or anything back in its place.

Thank dingdong. Actually saw as is to the substitution in the GL1100 but did not know if really is towards equal because at some point says that this information only a worth for 1100.
Thank Fred. Does then the wiper not resets?

The wiper was found to offer no value to the seal life, so wipers are no longer used. A seal is all you need.
