What are you looking for in a kit - bearings and such? I don't know that I have ever seen such a thing for the 1100 engine. The problem is, buying a bunch of internal parts, and then the labor to tear it apart and put those parts in, can very easily exceed the cost (around $250) of buying a used engine in good shape - so people rarely do it.

I know of a few people who have overhauled 1100 engines, but they are doing so because they are good at it, have a spare engine to pull parts from, have lots of time, have lots of money, or any combination of the above.

Yes, I am looking for a kit with bearings, rings, gaskets, etc. I am rebuilding it myself as a project, just can't seem to find a kit. Thank you for your response.

Yep been looking for one as well havent seen anything yet I only want to do this because I like the way these GL1100 engines run I think Honda hit the nail on the head when they built them. If I find a rebuild kit I'll post it.
