Re: GL1200LTD restoration - rear brakes question

It was simply two longer bolts in place of the two that hold the seat down, then 3 or 4 oversized nuts were slipped over each shank for spacers. Then nuts to tighten the bolts. It won't be easy to take a picture because said nuts and bolts would have gotten dispersed and assimilated into the shop. I...

Re: GL1200LTD restoration - rear brakes question

Been avoiding the computer for a couple of weeks. Thanks for the seat lowering advice - it'll probably come to that. But the seat is soooo nice - I'm going to be worried about botching it, but if I must, then so be it. I'll try to think of it as a theatre seating upgrade. I also removed the bolts th...

Re: GL1200LTD restoration - rear brakes question

Good advice DT - but I have to say I beat you to it! The NAPA belts are even Gates branded, but much less expensive than several other places. They still have other parts for these things too. I scoured the forum(s) and found people listing a bunch of equivalent parts, like the fuel injectors that f...

Re: GL1200LTD restoration - rear brakes question

New Teflon/SS braid sounds like the way to go, thanks. I can just see the brake lines turning to balloon animals on the first test ride. Know of any good online sources? A quick search brought up a set of 4 brake lines from a place called Randakks for $200 US, which could be worth it, but I've never...

Re: GL1200LTD restoration - rear brakes question

Thanks! So it sounds like there's no magical devices in the brakes to watch for, which is a relief. I had intended to rebuild the hydraulics anyway. I do have the shop manuals and the LTD supplement, but it still feels like an alien autopsy sometimes. A lot of "What the...?" and "Wher...

GL1200LTD restoration - rear brakes question

Last year I acquired my deceased friend's 1985 GL1200LTD, and I will be getting it on the road after several (8?) years in climate controlled-"ish" storage. Thanks to the fine advice and information found here (special thanks to Rednaxs60!), I have a plan, and the parts, mostly. I put the ...
