Howdy all, newbie here:) Just introducing myself and short subject.

I am working on GL 500 in livingroom making into silverwing I. Also have CX 500 making into comuter. We just acquired an 83 GL 1100 called Bella(Bike) and an 83 GL 1100 called Trixie(Trike) that is really a 4 wheeler. At 4'10" wife cannot flatfoot anything other than her Rebel till we found Trixie. But Trixie is sick.
Problem 1: Voltage seems off. Voltmeter on battery reads 13.4 @1200 and 13.0 @3000. and 12.7 @4500. Is this not backwards?
Problem 2: Reconditioned battery and topped off and tested good but when starting it clicks a few times then bumps then growls then clicks then bumps then cranks. Wife is worried sometime it will strand her.

Bellas only problem is right exhaust is flat and cool while left is strong and warm. Seems like #4 is not working right. after warmed up it goes to spitting intermittently. I am gonna run seafoam thru and see and also got sync kit to do all bikes.

BTW comp test on Bella shows 2 and 4 at 170 cold and Trixie cold runs 165 to 180

I have about 4 hours work left on Silver to get it on ground and doing house remodelling so not much time for 1100's but I find time if I have ideas to work on. Took me 2 weeks to remove broke exhaust and install repaired one so I am slow:).

Love this site wingadmin.
