According to the parts breakdown, under the Cylinder Block Section on the Bike Bandit webpage they carry it. I also checked with Action Motor Sports in York, Pa and they have it listed.

I have found some on ebay, but they're not cheap. About $36 plus shipping. Was thinking of buying one, but the bikes running fine so I don't really need it. Maybe when I get around to changing the timing belts I'll pick one up. Search ebay for "gl1100 timing sight glass", you'll find them.
    You only need two tools in life - wd-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the wd-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape!

You don't need them to change the belts unless you plan on doing the timing at the same time.

$36...for that, I'd seriously consider coming up with something that I could use to make my own.

Shoot, for $36 bucks, my opaque plug is staying on there. What good is the glass going to do me anyway? I can't adjust the timing on there with the engine running, so I'm gonna get me a couple bottles of whiskey with that cash.
