83 Apin. Cruise control

Post by bcnv1100 » Fri Sep 28, 2012 6:24 pm



Hey all , I'm just finishing putting together an 83 apin. 1100. I got to a part on the left front of the bike and am pretty sure its the electronic cruise control. It has a couple wires coming in then a cable coming out that has a ring like on the intakes, not sure what one it is supposed to clamp onto then a ring at the end that i'm guessing goes to some part of the linkage to hold open the throttle at whatever speed, then it has a little nipple that i'm guessing an air line hooks to but i'm not sure where that goes . What i really need is a how to on hooking it back up or just some pics on where these things land. Any advice? I have the standard gl1100 manual but it doesnt cover this or even show it. HELP!!! I want to get this bike done!!

The reason your manual doesn't show it is because it's aftermarket, added by some previous owner. Goldwings didn't come from Honda with cruise control until the 1987 GL1200 Aspencade.

I hadn't thought about till you said that but the controls are not stock looking, I'll have to look for a brand name tomorrow. it looks like it's supposed to connect to one of the carb intakes, there is a hose nipple screwed in to where the little scre usually sits. might just do away with whole thing it has one those lever type cures controls next the throttle too
