1983 GL1100 Driveshaft removal

Postby roberte » Fri May 30, 2014 6:58 pm



Can someone give me advise on how to remove and replace the drive shaft? or is it the driveshaft. I need help on this one. On startup the engine runs great in neutral. Place it into gear a loud bang with the engine dying. In need of help please.

That sounds more like a problem with the clutch. If the engine is off, the bike in gear, pull the clutch in. Can you push the bike along the ground, or is it jammed in place (i.e. back wheel won't turn)?
