anyone hear of this????

Postby triax01 » Sun Jun 09, 2013 9:50 pm



i replace the starter motor in my 82 GL1100 yesterday, i had to lower the left side exhaust pipes from the manifold to allow more clearance to get tools in to take it out. when i lowered the pipes, i saw a long piece of metal coming down from the heads and into the pipe , i removed it as it was loose in there . After reinstalling the stater motor i fired up the bike and now i hear a ticking noise coming from the exhaust where the the metal used to be. the sound is almost like a spark kinda sound . should i put this back in, is it some kind of ground ?

cheers

On my 1000,the header has a inner thermal liner.it is attached to the flange that bolts to the head.If yours separated and came out,it may also be leaking there too when assembled back to the head.
It's suppose to be there.If it's still open and not squeezed shut or won't restrict the exhaust,put it back.
You may have to replace the whole header as the liner is now actually broken loose.
Thenoise you hear is a exhaust leak.

Sounds more like PO stuck a wire through the header drain and forgot to take it out..there is a drain hole to allow rain water to flow out of the spark plugs depressions.
HAD LOTS OF GOLDWING 75-83
NOW INTO 1500'S..RIDING A 1998 SE

FAIR WINDS,
RB
