Re: Air wings worth installing?

Here is a pic of side wings for windshield. Yes, this is still a restoration of a show bike in progress.

They work good for wing deflection on upper body. Or scooping air in to upper body.

Re: Air wings worth installing?

As you can tell they are not attached to the screw spots near there. On the left side the bracket would interfere with the cb operation. The right side has the plate for assesory switches that will be redone next winter. 20220807_111428.jpg 20220807_111416.jpg 20220807_111351.jpg 20220807_111351.jpg

Re: New timing belt, is this okay?

When I did the belts and installed kia pullies on my 81 and 83 used the cam lockers. (Can find them on facebook marketplace about 20 dollars) They hold the cams in place with engine on timing mark. The belts were difficult to get on (pullies a tad bigger). And seemed to be a half notch off after a c...

Left belt was badly worn and pulley had lots of rubber on it. 1/2 inch drill bit is easiest way to get pulley off. ...

Re: Water pipe o-ring leak

Yes, bitter cold will cause coolant drips. A couple of my old semis with over a million miles on them would spot in winter. Minus 20 and outside.

This would be even after replaceing all hoses and clamps.

My 1996 1500 with 140 tho on it would drip during winter also in unheated garage.

Many of my bikes have changed gearing. Dirtbikes especially. Harleys also. 06 steetbob went up 2 rear tooth to get off line quicker. Same on hot rod Sporty I built.

Redoing my 81 with vetter setup. Have an 82 been stealing parts off. Couple front brake calipers and a few elec parts. The 82 has good tires. Can I just swap wheels and tires or need to change tires? Front wheel on 82 is the one piece wheel.

Re: gl1000 engine/carbs into gl1100 ?

Did the 1000 onto 1100 several times. Run ok.

Had several wrecked 1000s, kid would buy a non or poor running 1100 for 200 bucks. Put 1000 carbs on and sell 1100 for 900 bucks. One we put the 1000 stator on 1100.
