GL 1100 service manual

Postby dmor1019 » Mon Jul 12, 2010 2:05 pm



Before this great forum had to remove manuals I grabbed a couple. However I need one now that I didn't get :cry: . Is any one willing to send me the pdf of the GL 1100 service manual? If so send me a pm and let know :)


Thanks

i too would like to get in on some of that. I just picked up my 83 interstate. As i get into it, i find the clymer is quite lacking. This place is a godsend, but having the service manual would be a sweet bonus.

I have the space on my computer and would really enjoy having a manual. I'm guessing that the 80 is not much different from the 83. I tried to get the downloads before they dissapeared but for some reason couldn't get them to download.

would like a copy as well please. I agree on the clymer lacking in some details. I have more often found myself coming in to check here after a quick glance at the clymer manual.

BTW if you are using the clymer manual for 75 to 83 goldwing, be aware of the errors. The ones I know of are as follows;

1: rubber plug location arrow points to wrong hole for slow jet.
2: arrow to bend tab to adjust float level points to wrong part.
3: fork oil level disagrees with Honda
4: Fork seal replacement is misleading.
5: addendum for 80 up says you have to pull engine to replace
6: 75-79 portion says to drop exhaust and shifter lever to remove starter but fails to mention side stand usage to lean the bike.
7: page 109 has wiring diagram for coils that shows coil 1 goes to cylinders 1 and 4 but page 212 shows coil 1 goes to cylinder 1 and 2.

Could I get the Service Manual also?
I just pulled my GL1100 out of a barn where it's been since 1992 and I'm looking at getting it back on the road.

mortiki, i'm having trouble getting a clear image on the page you sent. Any way I can get a copy of the pdf you said you have?

I just found that I am in need of a manual for 1980 GL1100. On a four day ride I became aware the my Fuel and Temp gages were working on and off (Mostly Off). I have checked/cleaned wiring connections under the seat but that did not fix the problem. It looks like the issue maybe the 7Volt Aux regualator but not sure where it is located on the 1980 GL.

Thanks
Vic

to see more clearly you have to open each page and then right click and save, Let me split this file in 2 and I may be able to email it. My limit is 25m and I have the pdf down to 34m.

When it was said "Reg/Rec is inside the fake tank under tool tray on left side and PM sent." that appears to be the situation for 1979 model but It does not seem to be in the same place for 1980.

Strange, My Clymer 75-83 says thats the location on 1000 and 1100 and the honda SM 80-83 says same place and both my 83 GL1100i's are in that same place. Maybe someone upgraded your 80 and relocated it.

dmor, did you get a pdf of the manual? I would like to get a copy if you did and can send it. I'm still not getting a good image from the link mortiki posted. I'm sure it's just me, as no one else has seemed to complain about the image quality
