key off, poke around with a meter..black to frame or grounded wire and red to various connector/wires until you find a hot one..with the key off..the wire will mostly be a red one. that goes into the back of the radio. There should a couple of clam fuses up in the fairing I am fairly sure one of those is hot with the key off.

In the back of the Gl1100 80-83 shop manual under audio there is wiring diagram.

I had exactly the same problem with my 1982 GL1100 Interstate but its easily fixed. Take out the LEFT hand side " Cuddy " box on the fairing ( the one under the plastic cover with the press studs ) Then you will see a couple of Clam fuses. One of these has power to it.
The wiring to the radio and the clock are there near with fuses , one fuse has 12v power on it and is not via the ignition switch .
Connect the wires to the radio feed and the clock feed to the downstream side of the directly powerered fuse and you will be fine. Use a test meter to deterime which one is the 12v feed
Hope this helps

Remove the left front turn signal, you'll find a bunch of inline fuses there for the radio. One of them is +12V at all times - if I remember correctly, it is a 0.2A fuse, and the wire is red.
