Needed 80' 1100 engine

Postby wingingit2 » Sun Oct 03, 2010 7:18 pm



I need an engine for my 80' 1100. This was a restored bike until the rod knock developed, now it needs replacing.

I'm breaking down a 80 gl1100 standard to dispose of,It sat up for 12 years,I bought it for parts.Currently the motor is short blocked.Another member needs a few parts but i don't think he needs the crank.The crank and rods should be OK,the jugs are pitted from rust,it had 50k miles.I'll pull the crank,rods,pistons,bearings as a set,if that will help.Cost is free+ups.Just glad to recirculate some old parts around.Get me a list of what you need and i'll see what i can do.

The motor I have now has a rod knock. I guess your setup would work. I have never split a GL case before but don't really see it as a problem. See if you can figure out what shipping would be to SE Arizona, 85615. I just might give it a try. :shock:

I'll Pull the crank and rods and weigh them.The hardest part is re-assembly.The left pistons hang off the crank on the right side,I broke a few compression rings putting it back together.Also consider honing the cyl and re-ringing.when you re-install the the pistons,often the old rings won't seat well and it can loose compression.I'm wondering about the knock,I've heard a lot of noises in the wings but never a verified rod knock.Can you add a audio clip or video so we all can hear?My old wing (150k miles)would rattle,clatter,and clunk,but the engine part was still OK,just worn out.Thanks

Sorry, already out of the frame. It sounded like some one was inside the engine with a hammer.
Let me know about shipping.

I pulled the crank.I wasn't pleased about the condition of all the bearings(see pix),however it weighs 27lb and ups ground is $20.15 if you really want it.

I don't see any pix. I'm probably don't want anything not in pretty good condition.
