I have searched and could not find a dyi info for removing the 83 gl1100 engine. Has anyone posted one of these dyi? If so can someone point me to it?

If not I will try to take pics and show how I stumble through it.

Here is a pictorial for the 1000 engine. Apart from a few minor differences the procedure is the same.

Hope it helps.
The only silly question is the one you don`t ask. Everything else is game.

If you can get a copy of the OEM service manual it will walk you through it. That and the tutorial in Shoptalk on the NGWclub forum and you'll be golden.

removed and installed. I replaced the ignition with the c5.
What a huge differance in the way this engine runs now. Very Very good improvment.
