1978 Goldwing brake caliper question

Post by oscaRebel » Fri Sep 03, 2010 12:51 pm

Hey all.
I have a 1978 Gl1000 but it doesnt have the right caliper (looking it as sitting on the bike), so braking power is pretty weak. Some guy is selling me both GL1100 (1982) brake calipers, but i dont know if they would fit my GL1000. So the question is, should i buy those calipers??? Please help!! Thanks a lot.

Brake calipers are different for every year of 1100, and won't fit amongst one another, let alone a GL1000.
