1975 GL 1000 exhaustion mistery

Post by aseligman@uol.com.br » Sun Jan 24, 2016 11:31 am



Hi, is there any 1975 model that comes factory made with 1976 exhaustion? Mine seems to have this strange combination. And appears to be stock.

If I didn't know better sounds like this is a setup to a joke.
:D

OH... ok, got it after rereading a couple times.
1975 model with 1976 exhaust.
Always a possibility yours was a 1/2 year crossover.

New first year models have a tendency of quick product changes.
Consider them, silent upgrades.

sorry for my english. It´s the exhaust (the muffler): it´s not that black and chome model, it´s that all chrome that came from 1976 to 1979. But the frame numer match 1975 year.

No problem on lingo. Everyone has a little fun with everyone.

I know nothing about the earlier models but I do know mid-year changes. You just might have one.
Dig deep for serial numbers and when items changed.

The black 'horseshoe' muffler/silencer was fitted to the 75-77 models. The chrome one was fitted to the 78-79, with different header pipes. The whole systems can be interchanged between years.
