I recently purchased a GL1500 (after selling my GL1100). The date of first registration in the UK is 1989, but it shows up as a GL1500-J - which I believe is the 1988 model. How can I tell for sure whether it is a 1988 or 1989 model? (I want to buy copies of the Honda manuals - and there is a different version for each year.) Thanks for any help you can give.

Look on the frame to the right of the steering head. Turn the handle bars to the left and you'll be able to see down under the right side of the frame's neck, the manufacture date is on that sticker.
Keep the rubber side down.
