Cold Start Up - Video with sound - '80 GL1100 I

Postby Wingsconsin » Tue Aug 20, 2013 8:58 am



The GL1100 I have been resurrecting is now completed. IN fact we did a quick 2500 mile trip over the weekend and averaged from 37 MPG on the interstate at 70-75 mph to 42-44 MPG cruising the back roads in and aaround South East Ohio where we ripped up the 555 (Triple Nickle) near Zanesville and into West Virginia too....

Last week it was pretty cool at home and I decided to video my son getting the bike out of the garage on his way to work to capture what I think is a really good version on the GL1100 starting from cold and then warming up...This is after a LOT of work was done to it including a complete carb rebuild and an arduous complicated repeated vacuum synch that eventually ended up being near perfect...

Enjoy the next 3 minutes --
