Local gl1000 parts

Postby Lastwachter » Sun Apr 13, 2014 9:06 pm



I just picked up my 78 GL1000 today (pictures coming tomorrow) I am starting with the basics. Battery, oil, filters, timing belt, etc. I am having trouble finding out what local auto stores carry these items. Can anyone recommend where they go locally in their area for certain basic needs?

I have found that Advance Auto has a few parts. Oil filters, plugs, might be able to get belts.

Napa carries the timing belts. You can probably get them at any auto parts store. Gates T274 or NAPA 250274

Oil, I use Rotella. You can get it pretty cheap at Wal Mart.

I use a spin on filter, I put a adapter on several years ago.

Be careful with the gas filter as there is a lot of junk out there. I use one of Randakk's filters.

I have the same bike as you, the 78.

Thanks for the help guys!
Here is what I came up with so far

Advance Auto parts - Had the oil filter, oil and anything else generic I needed.

Autozone - Generic

Pepboys - Generic

Napa - Timing Belt, Generic

*Sidenote, I purchased one of Randakk's fuel filters as well.

Where did you get the air filter adapter from?

It was the OIL filter adapter, also Randakks.

You can make your own air filter with one of those foam/oil type. I had one but didn't care for it.

Ah, gotcha. I misread that. Yea, I saw the oil filter adapter and plan on getting one as well. But for now its about getting it in running condition and then one project at a time from there. :)

Another good source is J.C. Whitney. They have seats to fit the older Wings as well as windshields to fit Vetters fairings and lots of other goodies.
