GL1200 Front wheel removal

Postby fcesar » Mon Mar 19, 2012 5:04 pm



I do not have the owner's manual for my 85 GL1200.
I know there is a pattern that must be followed when tightening the clamps but I don't know what that is. I know the 1500 but I don't want to assume the 1200 is the same.
Can anyone give me a hand on this?
And, what is the torque spec for the clamp bolts, besides "1/2 turn before it strip" :D
Thanks

Position the axel holder devices with arrows forward
(if removed to get wheel back on.. re-install the brake caliper assemblies )
Axel holder nuts, washers, lockwashers on just loosley
Front nut tightened first to 18 ft lbs'
Rear nut second also to 18 ft lbs
Finally .. is there a a .028 thou clearance between right caliper bracket and disk?
adjust forks in and out a bit to obtain this gap... and re-do the tightening
Rotate and check...

This will provide you with all the torque values you'll need. And some other good stuff. ;)
