Re: GL1100 Front Forks

probably from an 83 and the forks are different..I think 80-81 were the same but 82 and 83 changed. so calipers etc. won't fit unless you change the whole front end. check aparts fiche and if the numbers are diff. then so are teh forks.

Re: Timing Belt, can you turn crank with belts removed and only the right cylinder head installed?

You can turn it..did you mark the crank position before removing the belts.?? It may/will take two revolutions to get it back to original spot??? If my memory is correct.

Cash in hand or no ride..if they came to buy they should have the cash..if not they are tire kickers..anyway. I have sold a dozen bikes that way, I hold the cash until the bike returns..in one piece.

Re: Oil insists on dripping!

If yoiu are sure it's from the timing belt cover..either crank seal is leaking or one of the cam seals..if not the water pump oil seals/washers are; if the pump it's coming from the weep hole.

Yep and you don't need to take all that stuff off; you can get to the two bolts that hold the ignition on just by working a wrench under and behind the top of the mount at least on earlier models the ones w/o the electronic display..I done it several times..

Re: Engine Piston

170 perfect
160-169 excellent
150-159 -very good
140-149-good
lower than 140 manual says time for rebuild but they will run OK down to 120's even 100's

If low add oil to each cylinder and retest if they come up = ring issues. If not valve issues

testing done with throttle wide open stop run off.
