Re: Many Thanks!!

I need to post this, because I am about ready to burst. Since 2016, my GL1100 and I have been on short jaunts to work and around our area, due to cancer treatments I started then. After 4.5 years, 75 chemo treatments, I was told that the oncologist cannot find one cancer cell in my body at this poi...

LTD Handlebar

My LTD has the 9” rise handlebar, but with only 28” width. It’s my understanding these models should have 32” width, right? Or, wrong? Whatever, does anyone else out there have a handlebar like mine on their LTD? Anybody got a spare proper LTD handlebar they want to sell?

Stopping oil leak at oil level viewing window

My barn find ‘76 had an oil leak at the level viewing window. I cleaned it with solvent, and having ascertained the leak was from the bushing/seal that surrounds the inspection screw for the wiper, I cleaned the area with solvent. Very clean!

My ‘76 GL1000 has a slow, yet persistent leak at the window. Is there a way to stop this in situ (without engine removal) and still preserve function? I like the window and wiper, despise the leak. If impossible to preserve function, what is the best way to plug that cavity? Then, I suppose I get an...
