Re: Help with wire testing - headlight

I realize this is a GW forum and that you/we are discussing your 1100. I just saw from your profile that you stated you had a Himalayan. There is a section on here that discusses members' other bikes. Sorry for the confusion.

Re: 87 GL1200 interstate speedo

If the inner cable spins smoothly at the top while spinning the front wheel, then the problem is where the cable connects to the guage or the speedo itself is bad. Just make sure neither end of the inner cable has had damage (rounded or a piece broke off, making it too short), and that the cable is ...

Re: Greetings and tips for first big bike

The extra 'body work ie plastic' is mounted high so will feel a bit top heavy, but that's what the wider handlebars help with. Keep at it. Your efforts will be richly rewarded.

Re: Greetings and tips for first big bike

I suggest that you learn and PRACTICE counter steering (if you haven't already). Don't try to wrestle the bike. It outweighs you by a bunch. Once c-s becomes second nature, the bike will feel more responsive. It will also make for a more relaxed ride. And as stated before, focus on where you want to...

Re: removing the helmet locks ?

Yes, you can. Standing behind the bike, the holder on the left is held on by two bolts (possibly with lock nuts) and the right one is held on by two screws. You will have to remove the trunk to access the right one, and it might also make removing the left one easier as well.

Re: 1978 gl1000 runs funny when warm

You might have two problems. But regarding how poorly it runs when 'warm', next time it acts up like this, pull off the road, shut the bike off and remove the gas cap. If you hear a whooshing sound it would indicate a clogged vent causing the bike to 'starve' for fuel and making it run very lean.

Re: The Magic Is Gone!

I hear you, Dave. I bought my first Honda - a 50cc Supersport - in 1965. I bought a 1976 GL1000 from a friend in 1984, not realizing it would be the last bike I owned. Living outside of Denver, I took many trips through Utah, Wyoming, Idaho and Montana, even into my 60s. When I retired and moved to...
