Timing Belts

Ok, So now that thanks to you guys especially Little Beaver my 83 is running I need to do my timing belts. When I got my other wing a GL1000 I found a guide with pictures on naked Goldwings. I think the guy who wrote it was named octane. The method worked very well and I got it done without a hitch. My question is this. Does anyone know if I can use the same guide on the GL1100? The belts seem to be the same but is the procedure to replace them the same?

I have done this job on both machines and cannot remember any differnces in the procedure. Make sure you turn the engine over by hand before pressing the starter switch just in case you have got it wrong, The valves WILL bend if they hit the pistons using the starter motor!!!
