Re: OIL LEAKING FROM EXHAUST/SMOKING HEAVILY

My symptoms were similar on a 76 that sat here in the desert for four years at least. Once I got the heads off the right side gasket was quite rusted between the cylinders and around the fire rings. Glad I decided to remove the heads.

Re: Gas pouring out Gl1000 exhaust.

I had a bad float set that would jam open, had to replace the float and needle, plus a good cleaning of the seat.

Re: GL 1000 HONDA Decal

I found a cheap false tank on ebay and was able to gently remove the metal decal, then reglue it to my top leaf. I've cannibalized various other bits from it too, so was a good avenue for me.

Re: Carb issue, ice cold manifold

Randakks sells two different float post repair kits, $36 and $38. I used the $38 setup on a CB750 carb with good results.

Re: Gl1000 overheating

Just read a post on another GL forum about high temps, that one turned out to be the 7V regulator. In that case, along with the high temp the fuel gauge was reading high. Guy ran out of gas twice because of it and finally figured out it was the regulator when it burned out. Just a thought.

Re: '76 Acceptable idle RPM?

Han, one of my GLs came to me with 1100 carbs on it. Being new to the GL world if someone hadn't pointed it out, I would have chased issues for a while before figuring out the deal. Unless you're sure, a quick pic post here will let us see what you have installed. Just a thought.

Re: GL1000 engine shutting down at lower speeds (while running warm)

You should feel a tremendous sense of accomplishment in what you’ve been able to do with your GL. I think I could equate it with working on the Saturn V back in the 60s, the things they achieved back then with the level of technology available at the time. These bikes are the same in that most curre...

Re: How to replace discontinued GL1000 Carb Intake Boots with GL1500 parts

Timely thread. I'm sure we will all face this insulator issue at some point. It's a big deal getting OEM insulators for CB750s, good to have a solution at hand now for GL1000s. I may try it on one of mine intake tubes to see how well it works.

Re: Roadfaxit VIN check scam?

They start out with nickles and dimes just too see if its noticed. If not things ramp up very quickly. I caught a $1.05 charge on my card last year out of Krakow Poland. My first time was in London in 2008 while still with the airlines. Back then they went right for the jugular, charging plane and ...

Well, it gets sadder. My bank called this morning to ask about some charges they had flagged; they weren't mine. Could be a coincidence that someone got our card number (it happens) but just seems damned unlikely. It was mainly nickel-and-time stuff, but adds up. In the old days they charged plane t...

The shaft is held in place by a circlip that has been removed in the photo.
In that case the shaft must press in from behind, a few solid taps with the mallet should be enough to determine if it will move and not damage anything.

Re: GL1000 starter rebuild - reduction gear head assembly

The starter section in my Honda GL1000 manual is only eight pages long, and says nothing about the drive reduction assembly. I am guessing from your pic that the bearing is pressed in, retaining the drive in the process; or am I seeing threads on the drive shaft? Excellent pic, btw.
