83 GL1100 done . thanks to all

Postby Redzrx » Wed Apr 06, 2016 12:37 pm



Big thanks to all. I purchased for a dollar a 1983 GL1100 Interstate.. Not Running so owner wanted to get rid of it and I just happen to know a brother and law of the owner.. Took it home and read tons of posts from many of you.. the DIY section and what have you..

problem was the Starter. removed and cleaned as per instructions. and boom turned over.. put on new tires,Battery,timming belts, did a valve adjust and carb sync.. all with this site's help

Drove it for the summer about 3k miles.. then noticed was not charging... tried a voltage regulater (as the easiest) but not that.. did the stator wire update as plug was corroded.. ended up stator was the issue but did not want to do the engine drop. read some posts and looked on youtube for some help.. then this winter. Dropped the engine and replaced the stator. hooked up . cleaned all up and ready to ride now.. going to post a couple of pics .. if works.. removed the trunk for the pics but does have the stock (with my username pics) ..

again. thanks !! great forum!! .. ride safe

Nice job!
Bike looks great, I took my trunk off one day to work on the lights- liked the look of it,and put on a backrest instead.
I also had a very slight vibration in my handlebars, which disappeared after I removed the trunk. Let us know how it goes. Regards, Johnny

Looks good! I took the trunk off mine also,sorta gives it a "bagger look" that's kinda popular now.
