Gl 1500 tranny question

Postby TennX » Thu May 31, 2012 8:53 pm



I just purchased a 1997 GL 1500 and am in the process of fixing all its issues, it came with after market floorboards and heel/toe shifter ...which i intend to change back to stock, upon inspection of the shifter linkage I noticed that the part that goes into the engine has some up/down ,in/out movement ...I havent torn into it yet , bike shifts fine and no leaks..many thanks for any info...

Common. I wouldn't worry about it unless the seal develops a leak.

Thanks for the reply, little disheartening and the fix is way beyond my pay grade....I guess this can be my trainer bike and then maybe trade up....thanks again..
