GL1100 basket case rebuild

Postby winghead » Fri Jun 28, 2013 11:08 am



Ok, so I've been on and off this site for about 2 years and finally about a month ago decided not to sell the part n pieces and put her back together...:D

Still got a ways to go but she does run. I think im going to get that carb rebuild kit from randakk....and I also need some advise with respect to the windjammer fairing.....where do I get a replacement windshield???

Any advise would be greatly appreciated and I will post pix soon!

J.C. Whitney is OK as I purchased a "stock" windshield for the GL1200 there.

They have Vetter replacements as well. Otherwise...look at JP Cycles, Chaparrel, Competition Accessories and other online companies. Might even take a shot at local dealer as they "just might" have one hanging around in the back store room....never know. Asking is always a good start.

Check ebay. I have seen them there. By the way I highly recommmend using the randak kit. I got the package that included the video for my gl1000. Make sure your slow idle jets are perfectly clean.I found out the hard way that they have to be pristine. $200 mistake! Best of luck with your build!
