Re: Where to tap into brake light circuit

Under the seat on left side there is a large connector c10. The connector is encased in a plastic housing. In that 25 pin connector is a Green with red stripe wire. That G/r wire feeds all the brake lights.

Re: Not riding? How do you keep yourself busy?

Mostly working outside in the yard and garden. We are not indoor people so we are outside most of the day. I am self employed so I can work on my own schedule. Yesterday we packed a picnic and went fishing. Nice to get away for a while. As for going out in public we still have to go shopping for foo...

keep that away from the Tupperware, it will melt
ABS melts at 221F. If that machine actually makes steam that is 212F. Close enough to cause possible softening and damage. I would not use it on my bike.

Re: First Honda. First cruiser. 86 Aspencade SEi.

The next thing you need to do is replace the timing belts if you don't have service records from the last owner with a date of replacement. Your bike has an interference style engine. If a belt breaks there will be a minimum of 2 bent valves. Don't rely on inspecting the belts, old hardened belts lo...

Re: GL 1100 or not ?

If you would post a picture from either side showing the paint scheme on the gas tank we could tell you if it is a standard or an interstate with a different fairing. The valve covers are from an 1100 not a 1000. Side picture would also show carbs which are different between the two models.

Re: Gas squirting from carb on acceleration

Here is good info on gl1100 carbs. They also have carb kits. If you purchase carb rebuild kits from other sources don't bother replacing the hard parts. All that is necessary are the rubber parts. Some aftermarket kits are made incorrectly and sized wrong. Example are jets and o-rings. https://www.r...

Re: Gas squirting from carb on acceleration

after further thought , i believe that is a dust seal only, and that your problem may be a ruptured or otherwise deteriorated accelerator pump diaphragm. the diaphragm, spring, dust boot and seal are available as a kit. at any rate, the carbs will have to be removed/disassembled/inspected/assessed/...
