Gl1100 issues. New owner could use some help.

Postby HammerHand » Sun Feb 28, 2016 6:15 pm



My husband bought a used gold wing gl1100 and is having issues with the wiring. The front breaks don't work, looks like they are not even hooked up and sight glass for breaks is gone. Blinkers where taken off before we got the bike. hubby is trying to get some put on it now. We have the blinker parts and the writing is there but he is having issues getting them to work right. So I guess I am wondering if there is anyone in or around Twin Falls that would be willing to help him out a little? Right now it is his only ride to work. We could really use some help here please!?

Hello,,, I live in Kansas City and cannot help in person but,,, I can direct you to the wiring diagram, just click on the manuals above and the diagram will show you what color wires go to the turn signals, your husband should be able to hook them up using those colored wires.... Someone would really have to look at the brakes in person to get a good idea what's wrong there.. I hope someone is near by..

I downloaded the service manual for 80-83 1100s in PDF format. If you can accept 15 MB attachments, send me a PM with your email and I will try to send.
