GL1000 1977 vs. 1978 Side Covers

Post by ezridermn » Sun Oct 06, 2013 11:14 am

Does anyone know if I can put 1977 GL1000 side covers on a 1978 GL1000 without doing any mods to the 1978 bike? Thanks in an advance for your help!

Not without mods. Totally different mountings.

Yes probably different. I have a 1980 GL1000KZ which had the older panels.. They were cable tied on...
