Time to Chime in

hello everyone
thanks for a greet site!! been reading a lot!!!
ok here goes been on bikes for 15 years mostly Honda, always loved the old GW
just got a 81 1100 I been getting to know it and thanks to y'all the know probs. my 1100 has sat for 10 years......started up and road the 6 mil home with a bit of skill and jump starts. so for i have changed most of the oils, gone thought the front breaks as the were dragging, back break not working ...timing belts/ coolant flush or today :D :D has lots of things to do, but all in all i think its a great place to start. have extra black bags w/ only right cover. if anyone is intrastate (ether color i'm planning a paint job). pic to fallow and yes i have the rap around wind screen
some of the ?? I have
1. is there a clutch arm adjustment? One of the PO has bout nuts of the lower cable end on the top of the mount point. When I went to put it right I can't get clutch to engage. Is the cable just starched or can I move the arm at the clutch like other Honda
2. how hutch oil in needed in the rear shocks so I can change
3. live in TX and it gets hottt here any problems with +100 F out side
4. has anyone gone naked in the summer and fairing in the cool....
going to do the 3 yellow wire mod... haven't looked at it yet as I am going from front to back and in the 2 weeks I have not had mutch time/ good weather going to make this a live long bike. As I am as from 81 as well it seams like a goos fit. my wife is waiting for my to get it pass rdy so we can go out
thanks ALL

Rear shocks the manual says 12oz. If progressive spring is in there then 10 oz.

100 degress should run ok. Just use the correct oil for the temps

To take the fairing off in the summer you need to have a light bucket and rewire the front end along with the dog ears for the turn signals.
